Ford Fairmont Futura 408 windsor

drag racing in alaska. This was the first car I owned back when I was 14. I finally pulled it into the shop,completely went through it and is really just a weekend street cruiser. It makes quite a bit of power, and with some more tuning I plan on being in the low 11's on the motor. There is a 200 shot of Nitrous also that I haven't really had the balls to use...meaning I wouldn't want to damage the motor!

1978 Ford Fairmont Futura BluWht
This is an interesting design from Ford. Essentially a very rectangular car, it has a sweep of color over the roof, reminiscent of the sweep of chrome over the roof of the 1956 Crown Victoria. Nice colors, nice interior!

1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though, easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway, enjoy the video. Here's some links.

408 Stroker Fox Body Mustang WOT blast and drive along
Took out the 408 Coupe again today after flushing the radiator. Wanted to try a lower shift point to avoid the missing I am feeling above 6,000 rpm. It pulled very nicely here. You can see that I put the Go Pro on the gauges so I could watch them under load. Ran cool and no issues. This car is a blast.
