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.

Chevy vs. Ford Cop-Car Thrash Battle! Roadkill Episode 12
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan are out to discover
which used cop car they like best, the Chevy Caprice 9C1 or the Ford Crown
Victoria Police Interceptor P71. Of course you expect nothing but the most
professional, scientific analysis from these guys, and that includes a day
doing donuts and bashing into stuff on pavement, tire explosions, a road
trip to the desert, camping, thrashing on dirt roads, and a finale that
just might create a new form of low-buck off-road motorsport.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

~~~~ Skip to 5:45 for the good part ~~~~~
I've had this motor sitting in the yard for 5 years now and never ran it

the rack loose, I got to fire it up. What a wonderful moment it

city bus and still has the half dismantled Allison transmission attached to
it which is what makes all those horrible sounds.
