My preference is a year old car on PCP with zero deposit (or at most a grand). My car allowance covers the monthly ‘rental’ and I know I’m protected against any falls in the used value. The GFV is so low that not the car IS reliable I can chose to buy it at the end and run it for a few more years. The guy at the next desk buys cars around 5k but he accepts that something expensive will go once a year – this year it was a gear linkage and a steering rack. At 90k he’s budgeted for the DPF and dual mass over the next two years. Works for him.

Groovy Factoids *Road Runners and Super Bees built with the N96 Plymouth Coyote Duster, Air Grabber / Dodge Ramcharger functional hood scoop system were better suited to operation in heavy rain. This had nothing to do with the scoops – which the Owners’ Manual told drivers to shut via push-pull Carb Air cables in poor weather. Rather, the N96 package included 3-speed windshield wipers in place of the less effective, standard 2-speed wipers. The 3-speed wiper motor fit closer to the firewall, which provided needed clearance with the N96-spec. oval air cleaner base. The 2-speed wiper motor protruded straight out from the firewall and interfered with the N96 air cleaner. On its own, the J25 3-speed wiper system cost $5.40.
Under the hood, the available 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 (available in 375 horsepower and 450-hp strengths) offers plenty of torque and very quick throttle response, making it a good choice whether you want to tow a boat or just pull away from lights in a hurry. Ford also offers a more traditional 5.0-liter V8, a turbodiesel engine , and two other gasoline V6 options. The truck itself features an aluminum body that Ford claims saves over 700 pounds compared to a conventional steel body. While the F-150 has fairly basic suspension, the ride is impressively smooth and comfortable. The styling is also a nice departure from the boxiness of traditional trucks.

Make your Edge Lighting look gorgeous: One of my favorite features on the Galaxy Note 10 is its edge screen, which can glow in a myriad of different ways to give you notifications. The default edge lighting, “basic,” gets the job done, but you can pick from plenty of other beautiful animations and glowing effects. Tap on Edge Screen > Edge lighting > Edge lighting style to get started. And don’t forget to edit which apps trigger edge lighting notifications using the “Manage notifications” option on the Edge lighting screen.

Beyond his work as a much loved author, Crump’s commercials with Toyota also helped grow his fanbase. Each would perfectly hook into the Kiwi psyche of the time; no doubt playing a massive role in helping the Hilux become such a popular device over the following decades.
