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.

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

1974 Ford Country Squire SOLD SOLD SOLD Sun Valley Auto Club!!
http://www.sunvalleyautos.com/1974_Ford_Ford_Hailey_ID_207057887.veh Two owner Idaho car, no rust. First owners had the car for 37 years in Payette Idaho. Story goes as she was always garaged. I can believe that from the condition that I got her in. The body was solid but the paint was starting to go. I took off the bumpers and all the trim and had her sanded all the way down. She is now painted and gleaming. I get to drive all my cars around and this is the one that turns the most heads! This wagon is so much fun. The only true big block in '74 and this 460 V-8 growls! Very nice road manners and she floats down the road. For the longest wagon Ford produced she turns amazingly well and it's a blast to see that long hood swooping around curves. The dash is perfect and free from cracks, the headliner is amazing and with out flaws, Both dome lights work as well. Power door locks and roll up windows, Power brakes and power steering. New wheels and tires. Contact Shep @ 208.721.1973 with your interest. Check out our complete line up of vehicles at http://www.sunvalleyautos.com or http://www.svautoclub.com
