I agree the current designs on Fords are ugly, and nice on the description of the grille, it's true, lol. But I don't think the design of that truck is going in a better direction really. At least different, but not better IMO. Maybe if they took off the big FORD across the front and made that a regular bar of the same color and put the regular blue oval in the middle it'd look a bit better... Or maybe it's the headlights that are ugly, I dunno. Really, the designs of the early '00 Fords were the best. After '06 or so, they went downhill on design.

And Ford would be doing a lot better if they brought back the people that first designed the Escort and Taurus so they'd have more of a selection of fuel efficient cars than just the ugly '08 Focus... But in all Ford's brilliance, they dropped the fuel efficient cars before the gas prices went up...lol.

What Ford needs to do is scrap all their US cars and just ship us their European models.

You know something's wrong when a company's export models are better than the models they sell to their own country.

What do you do when your exhaust rattles against your trunk? Stick a piece of rubber up there!

Haha, that happened to someone at Bimmerforums. Heat shield came loose and started rattling on the exhaust midpipe and he just stuck a bit of rubber in between to wedge the heat shield back up.

It is so super annoying when it happens though. Whenever I turn left or the road is tilted it's like "tatatatatattatatatata" and it drives me crazy!

Yeah, I saw that video on Autoblog and Speedhunters. Pretty sick.

Man...I'm so sad now. Formula 1 season is over. Can't wait until 2009 though. Just a front wing, rear wing and pure slicks. No more barge board aero crap and no more grooved tires.

On the other hand, the FIA better not standardize engines for next season. The sport has already lost enough of it's soul.
