Ford Granada ~ An unloved American Car
The Ford Granada, perhaps one of Ford Motor Company's most successful
failures. They sold thousands of these cars, and everybody hated or made
fun of them. Our current occupant in the White House owned one, and drove
his to be wife, and first lady on a date in one with rusted out floor
boards. The Hearsedriver had one as well, ....yes, I did like the car or I
would never have bought it. Sit back and take a fond look back at the
Granada, did you know somebody who own one?

When Ford chose to replace the enormous Mk IV Zodiac and Zephyr range, they
took a massive leap forwards with the new Granada and its cheaper brother,
the Consul. Smaller than its forebear, it was lighter, faster, and smarter. This is a shortened
version of the launch film for both cars, and shows how high Ford were
aiming with this car in terms of the cars it was competing with.
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

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.
