Country Squires of the Silverscreen
The legendary Ford Country Squire was not only the "Wagonmaster" of the
American Road, the Country Squire was widely used in film, especially in
the 1960's thru the early 1980's. Sit back and watch, see if you can figure
out some of the TV shows and movies in this video.
Starting a '76 Country Squire
My friend Luke and I trying to start and idle a 1976 Ford LTD Country
Squire station wagon.
It sat in the woods only occasionally being started for about 5-6 years.
I will try to answer comments as best that I can, but keep in mind I am not
the 'car guy'. So the answers may take awhile.
Ford Country Squire The Wagon Master
Sit back, turn up the sound and imagine you are the Griswold's. Featured
are Country Squires from 1959 to 1987, huge chrome monsters, laced with
woodgrain paneling, and room for half the basketball team. These are the
SUV's of the 50' 60's and 70's, great cars with lots of room, class and
plenty of power to tow.
Wisconsin Junkyard Part 2
Kenney and I journey though a Wisconsin junkyard. While a great friend
Kenny makes a poor camera man. Sorry about that guys. Lots cool old cars
and old school muscle. I really wanted to take them all home and restore
them. My Favorites were the 69 Chevelle, the 66 Impala, and Ford LTD.
1977 Ford LTD Country Squire drive
I shot a small video in March driving the wagon around Macomb Ill, where I
used to attend college at. I did some repair work to the engine to get her
running better but she still needs the engine rebuilt. At times you can see
the camera vibrate, this is due to a bad miss in the engine.
