Ford really did it this time.  I mean an aluminum pickup truck… crazy innovative.  Hey, if it’s been tough enough for years on the Land Rover Range Rover, why shouldn’t the 2015 Ford F-150 be aluminum?  But, aluminum and a 2.7-EcoBoost V6 powerplant?!?!  Talk about a game changer.   Growing up, my family always had a pickup truck, mostly Dodges.  When it came to home improvement or landscaping, my parents were...

Ford Police Interceptor Special Service Police Sedan: AKA The Slow Squad

My last post happened to be on a real-life version of the Bravado Banshee from the game Grand Theft Auto V.  So, I thought it only appropriate that my next topic be on a real-life squad car from Ford.  Only, this particular squad has no hope of ever, ever catching a Bravado Banshee, in the real world or otherwise.  That’s because this squad is the Ford Police Interceptor Special Service Police Sedan… aka: the slow one....
