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.

Replacing Inner Tie Rods Fox Body Ford -EricTheCarGuy
After shooting "1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look" I decided to replace the right inner tie rod on the Fairmont. It was pretty loose and was also wearing my tire on that side a little funny. I thought it would be a good idea to just go ahead and replace it. As you can see in the video it's not that difficult. I had a harder time with the cotter pin than the inner tie rod. Still, this video will apply to all fox bodies of this vintage and get you the information you need to know to get the job done. Here's some useful links.

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.

Pass Time Event at the LRS 10th Anniversary
In the planning stages of our 10th Anniversary our Sales Manager Mike Linley suggested that since our employees were not really getting a chance to run their cars down the track, maybe we could organize a "Pass-Time" style game show for a few lucky people from the car show. We thought about it, and all decided it was a great idea. If you have never watched the popular Pass-Time TV show on Speed channel, the basics are that you have contestants that try and guess the elapsed time of one car they have never seen go down the track before. The challenge is that they can only ask the driver one question to help them narrow a guess for the ET and whichever of the contestants is closest to the ET wins money. Cars can range from daily drivers or they can change up drivers to make it more interesting and don't forget the combo round where you have to guess the total ET of two cars going down the 1320 at the same time. Usually they wrap up the show with a really fast car to throw everyone off. LatemodelRestoration.com Texas Motorplex Ennis, TX
