The Fairmont The Plan -EricTheCarGuy
I think every build should start with a good plan. You need to figure out what it is you want to accomplish before you start paying out your hard earned money on a vehicle build. In this video I talk about my plans for my 1979 Ford Fairmont. For those of you not familiar, this is a Fox body vehicle which is the same chassis as the Ford Mustang from 1978-1992. That means that most of the parts that fit a Mustang of that vintage, fit this car. I'm not the first person to think of this, but I hope to put my own unique spin on this build to make it my own. I think you'll enjoy what I have in store for the Fairmont. If nothing else, it will make for a bunch of new and interesting videos this season. I can't wait to get started. FYI, that will likely be summer 2015. Thanks for watching.

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.

fairmont 79
Este es mi súper Ford Fairmont del modelo 1979 restaurado por completo ya que en su totalidad todo fue reparado, su motor v8 302 fue destapado para checar el desgaste provocado por el uso de estos 31 años desde su salida de agencia y como pudimos comprobar solo tenía 0.3mm de desgaste por lo que se considero por medida estándar aun así se ajusto, En cuestión de ojalatera este se encontraba en buen estado por lo que solo fue necesario darle un bañito de pintura de su mismo color originarla vestidura es nueva ya que la original estaba un poco dañada, todo lo del tablero fue sustituido por partes originales de otros autos, su cajuela en particular fue alfombrada para su mejor comodidad, en la parte de la refacción cuenta con su gato y llave de tuercas original aparte de las que se ven en el video, a toda su suspensión sele cambio por partes nuevas lo que son resortes y amortiguadores, en accesorios solo lo que se ha modificado es la parte del audio ya que cuenta con equipo de la marca pionner, clarion, jc power y sus bocinas ambientales son todas de la marca pionner. De verdad es un auto cómodo con climas, espacioso y con una línea elegante además de una potencia en su motor que permite ponerte a duelo con cualquier otro auto. Se tardo en su reparación alrededor de dos años y medio. Aquí se los dejo para que lo vean.

5.3 LSx Turbo Fairmont At No Problem Raceway, March 31, 2013
So, here is the second or third pass of the day. Basically, I had a hard time getting enough Boost built to adequately launch the car. That, coupled with shift point and lockup woes kept me away from my goal again today. However, it was a great day to race and the car still ran well, despite having a cracked ring land on #5. Will be pulling the motor soon for piston replacement and it will also get ported heads....
