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.

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.
Ford Country Squire The Wagon Master
Sit back, turn up the sound and imagine you are the Griswold's. Featured
are Country Squires from 1959 to 1987, huge chrome monsters, laced with
woodgrain paneling, and room for half the basketball team. These are the
SUV's of the 50' 60's and 70's, great cars with lots of room, class and
plenty of power to tow.

1977 Ford LTD Country Squire drive
I shot a small video in March driving the wagon around Macomb Ill, where I
used to attend college at. I did some repair work to the engine to get her
running better but she still needs the engine rebuilt. At times you can see
the camera vibrate, this is due to a bad miss in the engine.
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!
2600hp Ford Falcon??? The DIRTY BIRD
One badass bird! This 1968 Ford Falcon running on 275 Drag Radials lays
down around 2600hp through its 449ci Small Block Ford with a pair of 88mm
turbos, watch it tear down the track at
the North Star Dragaway x275 race.
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
1971 Ford LTD For Sale
1971 Ford LTD Convertible for sale in Chicago, IL. This 1971 Ford LTD
Convertible is a true original. Unmolested, this 74 LTD has just 100,859
Original miles from its numbers matching factory upgraded 429 CID 7.0L 385
V8 engine. The vehicle has been repainted matching its original color from
the factory and is an ultimate cruiser for car shows, cruise nights, or
just to take out on the weekend to let the open road be your guide.
For 1971, the LTD received a more extensive facelift. In the rear, the
long-running styling theme of twin round or square "jet Exhaust" taillights were replaced by horizontal
taillights on all full-size Fords. The LTD lost its distinctive hidden
headlamps, but had the LTD grille badge, side trim, and tail which had a
center taillight featuring a center "third" brake light. For comparison,
this was an alloy trim panel on the Galaxie 500 while on the Custom 500,
the space between the taillights was body-color sheetmetal. The 1972 front
end featured flush grilles instead of the concave treatment of the 1971
models and an additional bumper bar extended across the center grille
section, while the rear received a large high chrome bumper into which
taillights were set. In the rear, the trunk lid was squared off.
This is a true original classic without the huge price tag associated with
it. This extremely clean and original 1971 Ford LTD Convertible is located
in our Chicago Illinois Showroom which can be reached at 708-444-4488 for
additional information. (708) 444-4488 - (708) 444-4316
