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.

The Fairmont The Plan -EricTheCarGuy
I think every build should start with a good plan. You need to figure out what it is you want to accomplish before you start paying out your hard earned money on a vehicle build. In this video I talk about my plans for my 1979 Ford Fairmont. For those of you not familiar, this is a Fox body vehicle which is the same chassis as the Ford Mustang from 1978-1992. That means that most of the parts that fit a Mustang of that vintage, fit this car. I'm not the first person to think of this, but I hope to put my own unique spin on this build to make it my own. I think you'll enjoy what I have in store for the Fairmont. If nothing else, it will make for a bunch of new and interesting videos this season. I can't wait to get started. FYI, that will likely be summer 2015. Thanks for watching.

Introduced for the 1978 model year, the Fairmont was produced in several bodystyles until it was replaced by the Ford Tempo for the 1984 model year. The Fairmont was the successor to the Maverick; its Mercury counterpart was the Mercury Zephyr, which replaced the Comet. The Fairmont and Zephyr marked the introduction of the long-running Ford Fox platform, used for a wide variety of later models. Those most closely related to the Fairmont included the 1980--1982 Ford Thunderbird, the 1981--1982 Ford Granada, the 1979--1993 Ford Mustang (and 1979--1986 Mercury Capri), and the 1982--1987 Lincoln Continental.





1979 Ford Fairmont Lighting Upgrade -EricTheCarGuy
This video works as a good guide for replacing these older sealed beam headlights. Given that you don't see this type of headlamp much anymore, the ones you do find tend to get a bit rusty. The parts can also be hard to find if you break something. You can use the tricks in this video to help guide you through headlight replacement on an older vehicle like this and also to help prepare for aiming them later. When Sylvania reaching out to me and asked if I'd like to try their Silverstar headlights in my 1979 Ford Fairmont, I said sure, I'll try them out. They were also kind enough to send me some Silverstar tail lights to go with them. I feel both are a vast improvement over the stock lamps. Thanks for hooking me up Sylvania.

4-28-12 fairmont 2 wild last pass
took the fairmont out to island to work on the Boost controller, got it setup for 21lbs of Boost finally, and also sprayed some launches, need some practice on that, and need a bottle warmer, this last pass was after the track was closed down for a bit to cleanup some oil so slightly slippery and cold, i launched on the 75shot and shut it off in 1st gear as soon as i was rolling, the car started spinning in 2nd gear so i let off hard and then hit 3rd and figured this pass sucked, the next one if i get to make one will probably suck too, so i stayed in the gas pedal and ran it out teh back door, it went 11.0 @ 134 with only a 103 8th mile mph. pedaling and chopping the throttle in 2nd
