Ford LTD Country Squire 1977

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.

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 family. http://cdbaby.com/cd/thomshepherd





Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a larger GT37 turbocharger that measures 72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin the turbo so you'll get extra power.

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.

2014 Ford Raptor 6.2L vs F-250 6.2L Mashup Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Part 1)
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Ford SVT Raptor does not directly compete against the Ford F-250. But in this case both trucks have one significant thing in common...they both come equipped with the same Ford 6.2L engine. In fact the Raptor's 6.2L V8 is tuned with a few more ponies from the factory. So how do these two different trucks with the same engine compare when it comes to towing. We decide to find out by taking both trucks up the TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet Mega towing torture test in classic mashup review. The Ike Gauntlet is a timed run up one of America's steepest highways from 9,000 feet above sea level to the top of the mountain at entrance to the Eisenhower Tunnel in Colorado.
