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.

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.
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
1963 Ford Galaxie Country Squire Wagon STK # 1088
Did the original owner want to tow but need to haul a family or did he have
a hot rod and did not want to give up the power and muscle for the family?
Whoever he is, his order was cast for this rare 1963 Ford Galaxie Country
Squire because it is a factory big block car with a 4 speed manual
transmission. The original 390ci expired and the motor was replace with a
428ci V8 Cobra Jet motor attached to the original 4 speed manual. Painted
the original Corinthian White with wood exterior with light beige D/L and
pearl beige interior. Originally built and sold out of Ford's L.A. assembly
line and district sales office. The door tag confirms this Country Squires
rarity with an axle code of 5 for a 3.50:1 rear gear and trans code of 5
for a 4 speed manual transmission. The original owner obviously wanted the
meanest wagon on the block able to destroy unassuming muscle cars in
California that would never imagine what was packaged next to them or tow
the camper to the country for a nice weekend. Either way this is a special
car with a unique order combination seldom found today. For more details on
this vehicle or to inquire about financing please call us at 704-598-2130

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
1977 Ford LTD II Brougham
My new toy, a 1977 Ford LTD II with a 302 V8. Bought at the Clinton Auto
Auction on 10/17/09. The LTD II was built on the discontinued Torino
platform from 1977-79 and was sold alongside the regular LTD. originally
Ford called this their mid-size car, even though it's not really any
smaller than the regular full-size LTD. Basically it's a Ford Thunderbird
with a few minor differences.

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
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. Check out this promo for what's coming up
soon on The Fast Lane Truck.
