Squirrels are mischievous. I learned that the hard way. Tried to start the car (my daily driver, a 2014 Ford Focus) after a 12 hour shift at work. The poor thing had a terrible misfire. I decided to pop the hood to take a peek. That’s when I found this:
Longer wheelbase, shorter overall length, sharing a platform now with the great driving Fusion and Edge, oh and mated to that 380 lb-ft of torque producing 2.7L Ecoboost V6. Super High Output indeed!

Wow. Saturday was the Miramar Air Show, which is one of the best... in the world. We had “backstage” access with Team Oracle and Sean D. Tucker, who can make an airplane do some interesting things.

Originally scheduled to re-open on 9/12, delays in fabricating replacement parts,…
I wish I could get a C3 and a Ghibli together in my garage. Just an awesome odd pairing. I’m about to get ready to head off to San Diego for a briefing. Oh, I got the position by the way, not sure if I mentioned that...nothing to share since I don’t do any automotive related work though.
