78 Ford Fairmont Station Wagon

This is my 78 Ford Fairmont Station Wagon. Its my daily driver work car. I have had it for going on 5 years now. I pulled the original engine, transmission, and rear differential. The engine trans and 8.8 diff came out of a 89 Mustang. It is a 5.0 with a 5 speed and a 3.73 gear. It also has Mustang Pony Wheels on it. Here is a short video of me goofing off on my way home from work this past fall. Its nothing special just an old work car.

Summer's car "rebuild".
Summer's 16th birthday present, 78 Mustang II Coupe. She likes old cars, we didn't want anything with HP as a first car, plus not a "big" car either with C pillar blind spot. That little Mustang was about the only choice to find something dirt cheap, fixable and looks classic. Nothing too fancy in the refreshing, this car will end up on a highschool parking lot. Rebuild the little 2.3L engine, great on gas, 28-30 MPG on the highway. Block 60 over. For maximum grip upgraded the 13" to Front 205/55R15, Rear 215/60R15 sitting on Basset D hole Wheels. Primer sealer/filler/urethane paint is PPG. Yellow is 2010 Camaro single stage urethane. Clear coat is "Montana". Muffler is Flomaster Super 44, no drone sounds ok, pretty quiet. Music : The Crystal Method, High Roller - Album" Vegas".

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.

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.

Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator. Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

1966 Nova Wagon: TAPOUT Terror - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Tim "SkyScrape" Katz Most people who want to go road racing don't start off in a 48-year old station wagon. However it you're Tim "SkyScrape" Katz, the co-founder of "TAPOUT" you just say "F*CK IT", and build a wagon with the big 'ole V8 engine, a basketball size turbo, a roll cage and four racing seats so the family can come along for the ride. Tim's 1966 Chevrolet Nova Wagon was built in his garage and is anything but stock. Sure it's got some trick parts, but if you think it's a high-dollar resto-rod, think again as Tim's not only one helluva wrench, but one of the most die-hard car guys you're ever likely to meet.
