and everyone thought Ford inovated the short box with the explorer sport track and here they had already been making a full size version for years.

least thats what the double cabs look like to me.

Maybe it's just me, but the grille and quad highlights on those things remind me of a Family Truckster! :lol:

Fords not the only one that denied the US marketsome cool vehicles. I was in Costa Rica, Central America for about 6 months and saw a bunch of rigs that we have never seen here.
Did you know you could get a 4-door mid-70's Chevy LUV down there? I have been wanting one of those every since I got back!
there are 2 door coupe pickups made from things like toyota corolla's, with an actual bed of a truck instead of a trunk, things like that.
the F-1000's are really neat,tho! I hadent seen one of those down there, but sure wish I had.

BTW the current American fad of the 4 door minitruck started a long time ago in the export market, its not a new idea, just new to the American markets.

You gotta see the interior of this one sweet.

Em 1985 a concorrência da GM era renovada, exigindo resposta da Ford: chegava o motor a álcool de seis cilindros e 3,6 litros para o F-1000-A, dotado também de pneus radiais

Loosely tanslanted from my high school spanish class, its a 6 cylinder 3.6 liter. :lol:


Translated from Portuguese it says:
In 1985 the competition from GM was renewed and Ford replied with an alcohol 6 cyl, 3.6 liter engine for the F-1000-A, also endowed with radial tires

cool trucks.

but you'll never have one here. the emissions requirements of brazil (hard to believe since it's their rainforest we're protecting with our emissions standards) are a lot more lax than here. did you know that they still make the original vw beetle there? (or is it mexico?) can't import one because of the emissions laws. but, there was an outfit in arizona that would take your old beetle across the border, swap out everything and reinstall your vin tag on it, and viola', a brand new 60-70 something beetle.


and for that matter, how come a new truck doesn't get any better mileage than my 30+ year old truck? wtf?

And why don't we have engines here that run on alcohol? Lord knows it would help out our farmers.

Becuase why would we need bars, Lickher and rubher mountains stores, and budwieser and bush and miller and michelobe if the local shell sold alchahol for fuel and whinos just pumped the shiiiiieeite into plastic jugs for the lawn mower, yeah right the lawn mower.

My grandparents used to tell everyone about how CXalifornia alone produced 50% of the worlds supply of food. Back before the wall to wall city thing happening in California.

Actually, it's just ethanol - grain alcohol that they add to gasoline. You're probably thinking of methanol.

They quit making VWs in Mexico (Puebla) in 2003. In the 80s a lot of folks would smuggle them into the US and a few would import them legally. The real cost wasn't the smog control - it was all of the DOT stuff (windows, lights and so on). I remember a couple of guys in El Paso that used to bring them up to U.S. standard for importation and the buyers; final price was still significantly lower than the U.S. retail. I've owned five of the little guys myself!
