Unfortunately, It Has No Effect On CAFE

Admit it. You would have done most anything to get your hands on something like this when you were a kid. This is the Fisher-Price Power Wheels F-150. Available this September at a suggested retail price of $349.99, the electric pickup for kids has a strong resemblance to the 2015 F-150. That’s because Ford shared its design for that vehicle nine months before it made its debut at the 2014 auto show in Detroit. And while the 2015 F-150 will have an aluminum body, the Power Wheels version is made from plastic… or composites, if your kid is a snob. — CAS

Road Read: Black Noon

By Christopher A. Sawyer

On the second lap of the 1964 Indy 500 mile race, a rookie in a relatively untested single seater with precious little time behind the wheel finds himself gaining on the two cars ahead. Rather than throttle back and follow the veterans ahead, he lets the slipstream pull him forward, and arcs to the left in order to pick off the two cars enmeshed in their own battle. As he sweeps left, the car directly in front does the same, forcing the rookie to move even more aggressively to the left where he is caught in the turbulence of the two cars ahead as they rush forward. Suddenly, the nose of the rookie’s racer lifts off the ground, setting in motion the tragic events that would take his life and that of Indy veteran Eddie Sachs.

2014 Motor Muster

Every year The Henry Ford holds two major car events, the Motor Muster and the Old Car Festival. While the Old Car Festival honors cars from the period 1890-1932 and takes place Sept. 6-7, 2014, the Motor Muster is celebrates vehicles from 1933 to 1976, and takes place in mid June. It included a Saturday night cruise of Greenfield Village, Pass-in-Review parades, special demonstrations, a display of military vehicles, and much more. Here’s just a taste of what was on display this year. — CAS

Careers in Classic Car Repair

The International Guild of Specialist Engineers (TIGOSE), is a UK-based association that represents and supports those involved in the historic and classic transport industry. It is working with Babcock International to offer an apprenticeship program to students not going on to college who are serious about learning a specialized skill set. The program is based on classic and sports car maintenance, repair and restoration, and has modules specifically tailored for its members. The apprentices are trained on classic and sports cars, and learn at a specially equipped training academy over a three-year period. There they work alongside some of the highest skilled technicians in TIGOSE member workshops.

According to TIGOSE Founder Michael Scott: “The International Guild of Specialist Engineers was born to support an old industry in new ways: we cannot achieve that without injecting fresh blood, ideas and energies into the learning process.” With luck, the idea will spread to other regions around the world. — CAS

Rollin’ With the Royals

England’s 2014 Concours of Elegance will be held September 5-7 at the Grand Fountain Gardens at Hampton Court Palace near London. Prince Michael of Kent is the event’s patron. This is the third time the car show has been held against a royal backdrop. In 2012 Windsor Palace was the location, while 2013 saw the action shift to St. James’ Palace where £250,000 was raised for charity.
