The interesting fact about the Honda CRV is that it comes with a picnic table. The first and second generations of Honda’s compact SUV came with a standard flip out picnic table. Also, the first generation of this model included an optional shower kit for the back as well. Honda is a great brand for car features.

The Ford GT

The Ford GT is an extremely strong vehicle and to prove it, Ford dealers put it to the test. The Ford GT put out by Ford dealers was so strong that during the “roof crush” test, it broke the crushing machine. This is great news for Ford dealers because it shows how strong their vehicles are. They did not have a machine strong enough to crumple even one measly little super car.

One thing you may not know about this vehicle is that it used a Chevy V8 in the F1. The reason why was because the motor needed to have enough torque to replicate what they expected from their eventual production unit so they picked a Chevy 454 big block.
