I agree ........ it's a Merc, and the Bedford is a pickup from the looks of it.

Thanks all, I thought they were pretty cool pictures, so after some more research the 2nd car is a 68 Mercury Cyclone GT 500 did not realize they built this but a very cool car.

      Have you gone out and shopped for new vehicle recently? Are you overwhelmed by the variety of vehicles on offer? For example, if you decide to get a Porsche 911, you have the choice of 22 models. No, that isn't a misprint. Meanwhile other automakers have an array of models that carve out new niches and and mix existing body styles. Consider this, Audi sells 50 different variants around the world, a five-fold increase from the 90's when the German luxury automaker only sold 10 different variants. There has to be a point where automakers reach the point of too much and begin cutting back on their lineups, right?
      PwC, a consulting firm tells Bloomberg that by 2018, some automakers will begin to level off their lineups. The reason for automakers leveling off their is increased costs in development and production, and better differentiate their offerings to consumers.
      How bad is a large lineup for automakers? Detlef Kuhlmey, sales manager at Autohaus Kramm in Berlin tells Bloomberg that not many consumers get to see the full lineup because of how many choices there are.
      “Carmakers look for something special to present,” Kuhlmey said. “To most customers it doesn’t really matter.”
      Also trying to explain the small differences between the models adds a level confusion for dealers.
      A case of automaker shrinking their lineup is PSA Peugeot Citroen. Europe's second-largest automaker is planning to cut back their global lineup from 45 to 26 vehicles by 2024 in a effort to return to profitability.
      Others are going the opposite way. Mercedes-Benz is planning to add 11 new models by 2020.
      “All these options reduce the likelihood that people will choose any, and reduce satisfaction when people do choose,” Lots of choices are helpful when people know what they’re looking for, but “in general, people don’t know exactly what they want,” said Barry Schwartz, the Swarthmore College social theory professor who wrote “The Paradox of Choice.”

      The current Chevrolet Impala holds the title of being the queen of the fleet market. Last year, nearly 75% of the 169,351 Impalas sold went to the fleet market (about 127,013 vehicles). With the new Chevrolet Impala just around the corner, General Motors would not like to have a repeat of that.
      Chevrolet marketing chief Chris Perry said yesterday at the media launch of the 2014 Impala that Chevrolet will sell the old Impala to fleets for one more year. Those fleets looking to get their hands on the 2014 model will have to wait till next year. GM's goal is to drop fleet sales of the Impala to around 30%.
      “The Impala has become more of a fleet car over the last several years, and this allows us to continue to meet that demand for our fleet customers,” Perry said.
      This move allows GM to to capitalize on the popularity of the current Impala for fleets. It also allows the new Impala to re-position itself as the flagship for Chevrolet.
      The new Impala arrives in April.

      Longest Running Ride!
      Credit.com did a story on the 14 longest running vehicles on the road. This is based on the simple research of what autos are on the road still based on age and how many miles they have.
      End result came down to buying a truck or SUV is a solid investment for long life use with a few exceptions. As the research found out, the top 14 autos ended up being those that were over 200,000 miles and exclusivly made by General Motors, Ford and Toyota. Seems no one else in the US has auto's with high miles still on the road registered and running. The story goes on to say that the top seven autos, all SUVs are driven an average of 14,407 miles per year. 14% more than the average vehicle in the US. These results came from analysing 13 million used cars sold in 2016 that covered the years 1981 to 2016. 
      14 Longest running Autos with more than 200,000 miles
      13th - GMC Sierra 1500 2% of all autos 12th - Ford F150 2.1% of all autos 11th - Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2.2% of all autos 10th - Tie Honda Odyssey 2.3% of all autos 10th - Tie Honda Accord 2.3% of all autos 9th - Toyota Tacoma 2.5% of all autos 8th - Toyota Avalon 2.6% of all autos 7th - GMC Yukon 3% of all autos 6th - Chevrolet Tahoe 3.5% of all autos 5th - GMC Yukon XL 4.2% of all autos 4th - Toyota 4Runner 4.7% of all autos 3rd - Chevrolet Suburban 4.8% of all autos 2nd - Toyota Sequoia 5.6% of all autos 1st - Ford Expedition 5.7% of all autos credit.com story
      Interesting is that on their blog site for blog.iseecars.com they covered the longest lasting vehicles for the top 10 and came up with almost the same list.

      They also broke out for cars and luxury with some interesting findings:

      Faraday Future and Lucid Motors, Newest EV Automakers in America!
      Tesla as well as the Detroit, European and Asian auto companies have new competition. Tesla has seen in the last few years, engineers leave that had alternative dreams / plans that conflicted with Musk. As such this fall 2016 we are seeing coming out of the skunk works mode two new EV auto companies based in California is Farady Future who is already big in F1 E-Racing with over 1,400 employees world wide and Lucid Motors. Both companies have broken ground in Arizona for auto production lines. While there is little spec on motors, battery packs, etc. both companies using a rich background of Tesla Engineers clearly seems focused on building new Green auto's compared to waiting for Detroit to figure this out.
      Faraday has their F1 racer which also uses the same skateboard platform of which their concept driving around California is using. You can check out plenty of pictures online of heavily disguised CUV type EV.


      Lucid Motors also has their release pictures which includes their own camo covered auto's.




      For reading interest you can get more details on either of their web sites listed below.

      Time for a new thread, I think many of us grew up seeing the various auto mags and the crazy Hot Rods that were totally custom rides from vans, to custom corvettes, etc.
      Post your cool find of Custom Ride.
      I will start by one that just blew my mind, talk about the perfect Van / Boat Hauler.
