The 11th generation of Ford’s world recording selling F150 pickup truck was released for the 2004 model year and it was another instant hit. Available engines include a 4.2 liter Essex V6, 4.6 liter or 5.4 liter modular V8, but it wasn’t a performance automobile, it was a junk hauler. But todays F150 has been given an overhaul by the guys at Roush (Roosh or Roash…I dunno how it’s supposed to be pronounced) and given a supercharger and lowered suspension.

The London Black cab is a dying thing. The strange looking hacks zipping through tight streets are as much a symbol of London as the Tower Bridge or Big Ben…and certainly more iconic than the big Ferris wheel of blimps that blights the view of the Thames these days. Regardless, the crunch of low cost alternatives like Uber/Lyft, autonomous driving, pollution, and the fact that black cabs are based on a chassis older than a ’57 Chevy means that there is an asteroid with their name on it headed toward London now.
