A Story of a Lincoln Cosmopolitan Town Sedan, the Bucherer Family & a Special Watch

What if you had the chance to buy a car from your childhood memories? One that your father or mother drove during your childhood, or a family car of some sort? How about the first car you drove or owned yourself? Would you? I bet most people wouldn’t because, like watch collectors, we tend to look for an upgrade when buying a new car. For most, the next car has to be just a bit better, faster, more equipped, better looking. But for some, the memories remain so strong and so positive that having the chance to obtain such a car is a chance of a lifetime.

Ford Bronco Raptor Leaked In Dealer Ordering System

There’s been some debate among Ford Bronco enthusiasts as to whether the Jeep-competitive offroad Bronco would be titled Warthog or Raptor. We have our answer as a 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor has appeared in a Ford dealer’s ordering system. The Ford Bronco has been unobtainable for a while due to lack of production. The Raptor variant will likely be no different, and will almost definitely be even more scarce than other versions of the Ford Bronco. This Ford Bronco Raptor will be a direct competitor to Jeep’s offroading capability. Here’s how information about a Ford Bronco Raptor leaked from a dealer ordering system.

CDJ Today: September 15 in Classic Rock

September 15, 2014 – Apple release a tool to remove U2‘s new album, Songs of Innocence, from iTunes accounts after giving away the music for free. Songs of Innocence is considered the biggest album launch in history because about half a billion iTunes users owned it on the day of its release. Apple reportedly gave U2 a large blanket royalty fee and provided a marketing budget worth as much as $100 million to give the album away to all iTunes users, some of whom weren’t too happy to receive it.

Ford Bronco Raptor Details Leaked

As the 2021 Ford Bronco shares a platform with the midsized Ranger, it’s long been assumed that the SUV would eventually receive a Raptor variant. North America already enjoys access to the F-150 Raptor and the smaller Ranger Raptor (which is already available in other parts of the world) is said to make it our way by the 2023 model year. Considering the Bronco is supposed to rivaling Jeep’s Wrangler, having the ability to add a zestier motor, gnarly tires, a beefed-up suspension, badging that denotes enhanced off-road capabilities, and a loftier MSRP seems like an obvious course of action for the Ford Motor Company.

The Importance of a Carrozzeria to an American Automaker

Car companies make mistakes. To me, one of the dumbest moves Ford did in recent decades was to let go of the hallowed name of a famous carrozzeria (coachbuilder) they had bought degrades ago, namely Ghia. Carrozzeria Ghia SpA was established 1915 in Turin by Giacinto Ghia and Gariglio as...
