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.
Starting a '76 Country Squire
My friend Luke and I trying to start and idle a 1976 Ford LTD Country
Squire station wagon.
It sat in the woods only occasionally being started for about 5-6 years.
I will try to answer comments as best that I can, but keep in mind I am not
the 'car guy'. So the answers may take awhile.
0-60 test with 1976 Ford LTD Country Squire with pimped 460 engine 1
Test run with my new 460 engine.
Check out my new 0-60 video where I did it on petrol with all the LPG stuff
removed. It's faster!!
For a 5000+ lbs I think 9 secs aint bad. But I do feel a good tune up will
take off som 0,5-1 sec. It's got a nice 1:10,5 compression, straight
timing, a DUI ignition, ported heads, holley 4160 750cfm with vac sec and a
comp cams xe256h camshaft. Tranny and rear axle have stock gears, so rear
axle is 1:2,73. Btw I'm driving on LPG so performance I a tad less compared

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.

2015 Ford F-150: First Drive
As a term in the automotive lexicon, "all-new" often is applied
subjectively to original and updated vehicles, but used to characterize the
redesigned-for-2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck, "all-new" is as accurate as it
can be. PickupTrucks.com Editor Mark Williams marveled: "As near as we can
tell, there isn't a single aspect to this truck that hasn't been
reengineered, reimagined or redesigned." Perhaps most notable among the
best-selling F-150's newfangled features is its record-setting abundance of
weight-saving aluminum. However, Williams noted, even if that were not the
case, the 2015 F-150's technology and other segment-first features would
still be revolutionary.
