The Show & Tell (and drive) of the 1978 Ford Fairmont
I finally decided to film this car after putting it off due to weather, lack of enthusiasm, not enough tape in the camera, and/or not sure how to present this. It will need some work, mainly the engine needing a tune up and cosmetics. And on a side note; I had a car like this (1982 model) during my High School days. WARNING: An S-Bomb was dropped @ 4:29, and some unnecessary screaming and a MF-Bomb was done @ 9:33. Although I did put a warning banner for the latter (but not the former), I felt that I should remind you that this does have language, and viewer discretion IS advised. All that said, please to enjoy. Any questions, ask.





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.
