This is Aunt Edna. She is a 1977 Ford LTD Country Squire. These kings of the road once ruled the automotive landscape, now slowly being forgotten. She was found under a tree in 2004, sitting for three years. It had mold growing inside the windows and was being used for storage by the farmer that owned it. I paid $150....shes come a long way since then. The paint looked orange it was so badly faded, the wood sides where white, and the whole brake system was shot.....it took some labor and a lot of love....but its been worth it.
When I was driving home in November of 2005, I hit a deer at 65 mph in the Chicago burbs. I found a salvage yard where I go to school in Macomb, IL (home of WIU), I repainted the front clip, and replaced it my apt. parking lot.
This video was taken at whim. I was playing with my digital camera and I discovered that it could record. This was also the last time the wagon was able to drive. In January of 2007, my head gasket blew. I sent it to a local shop in Macomb, IL called D_D's Garage. He had the car for three months to fix it. It was never right. I took it back to Chicago, Aunt Edna over heated and cracked a head. I had her towed back to D_D's Garage, where he had it for another four months. He scamed me, I now have a car that longer is driveable. But Aunt Edna is getting another engine this spring.
And yes, that is Close Encounters of the Third Kind playing on 8 track.
Wagons of Steel
A video tribute to the great American station wagon set to music. Turn up
the sound and enjoy the awesome woodgrain paneling we all remember so well
of the big four, Ford, GM, Chrysler, and AMC. Thank You for watching
FORD We are family
A parade of forgotten Ford land barges from the late 60's and 70's. Many
of us fondly remember climbing into a huge Country Squire, LTD, or spacious
midsize Thunderbird for the family road trip. These 2.5 ton battle wagons
didnt fold up like tin foil when hit, like a new Accord or bounce you to
death like a new front wheel drive "family sedan". Most are now gone, but
not forgotten, we all remember the rumble of their 460 V-8 powerplants that
could acually tow a travel trailer.

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.

Walk around of my new 1991 FORD LTD Country Squire wagon
My tax refund and a big job I completed gave me some extra cash, so when I
found this wagon on craigslist, I had to have it. I'd been causally surfing
CL for a '90 or '91 Country Squire or Colony Park for years, but never
found one affordable or in good shape until now. This wagon was actually
traded in by the original owners at a local Ford dealer for a new car!
Country Squire Tribute
This is my personal tribute to a great singer and an American legend, the
Ford LTD Country Squire. You know when someone or something of our culture
has truly made it when its on South Park or The Simpsons.
I found this song by accident on I Tunes. I have never heard of Thom
Shepard till now. I recommend his other songs, they are really well done.
He also wrote Riding with Private Malone, that singer David Ball came out
with in 2000-2001ish.
Most of the pictures where pulled off http://www.imcdb.org/search.php
however, there are a few from my personal collection of CS wagons. The
second before the last, is when my red '77 CS made its day view late
October 2005. You can hardly see it but its back there.
It's sad to see great motor cars like these slowly be forgotten. Like the
others in its day,Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, Chevrolet Kingswood Estate, and
many others, may we never forget what these cars did for the American
