2012 Ford Taurus Police Interceptor
The most feared car on the road (for some) is about to be replaced. Ford’s old school Crown Victoria “Cop Car” is being phased out. Watch your back though, the all new 2012 Ford Taurus Police Interceptor is creeping up fast. The new Ford Interceptor will offer two powertrain options; a 365-horsepower twin-turbo engine with 350 pound-feet of torque or a 263 horsepower engine with 250 pound-feet of torque. Both options are more powerful than the current V8 engine of the Crown Victoria.

2011 Perfomance: Man's First Love
Josiah Coy’s love affair with cars took this ‘65 GTO from “basic” to “bodacious” while consuming three years of his life. The original engine was replaced with one newly rebuilt. He scored a virgin 455 block and Craig and Vong Dang at Top of the Hill in Livermore, California, built it with a stout bottom end, Edelbrock heads, a Demon Six Shooter three-deuce carb setup.
Josiah powder coated the chassis, then stripped and repainted the entire car. Along the way, he added more “goodies” than you can find in a candy store.
The result; a feature in HOT ROD Magazine, Josiah’s new shop “Coybilt Works” and a debut at SEMA 2009, winning an award from General Motors for “Best Midsize Vehicle” and the “Top 25 at SEMA” from the SEMA organization.
