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.
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.

Cranky Fairmont Wagon -20 C Cold Start, Reving and Quick Drive.
I know we already have a cold start of the wagon but I like hearing it and
I was bored. Ive driven it many winters with no problems, but it has never
sat so long with it being this cold, so I figured it might be fun to start
it. Andrews using my Optima battery so I had to steal one, and it was half
dead, but after alittle charging she fired up.
1979 Ford Fairmont Lighting Upgrade -EricTheCarGuy
This video works as a good guide for replacing these older sealed beam
headlights. Given that you don't see this type of headlamp much anymore,
the ones you do find tend to get a bit rusty. The parts can also be hard to
find if you break something. You can use the tricks in this video to help
guide you through headlight replacement on an older vehicle like this and
also to help prepare for aiming them later.
When Sylvania reaching out to me and asked if I'd like to try their
Silverstar headlights in my 1979 Ford Fairmont, I said sure, I'll try them
out. They were also kind enough to send me some Silverstar tail lights to
go with them. I feel both are a vast improvement over the stock lamps.
Thanks for hooking me up Sylvania.

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.
