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.
Fox Body Fairmont w/ Mustang 3V Engine Swap -- Ford Racing M-6017-463V
Check out the Fox Body Mustang Ford Racing 3V Controls Pack
We took the Fox Body Fairmont out for a little test drive. This thing
sounds wicked and launches like crazy. The Exhaust setup includes a set of MAC long tube
headers, a modified BBK x-pipe, and Jones mufflers coupled with a set of
Pipes flow tubes. The 4.6L Mustang 3V engine is being run by the
Ford Racing Controls Pack (M-6017-463V).

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.

1981 Ford Fairmont wagon w/5.0L Cold Start
Just felt like firing up the old wagon.It has a 1986 t bird 5L, t5, an 8.8
with 3.73 gears, bigger sway bars and poly bushings. Its chilling for the
winter, then its getting a fresh 302 with H/C/I, a better clutch and a 8.8
with 35 spline axles and a spool. Runs low 14s with ease, hoping for 12s
with the new combo.

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.
