Fairlane — Performance: after 275,000 km its pretty tired, but keeps on keeping on, not light on the juice. build quiality: bit of rust here and there, but still built like a brick dunne appearance: wasnt a fan of the grill years ago when it was first released, more of a fan of the LTD of that model, but its grown on me and of a car this age, the grill works and makes it look meaty

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Meaty appearance

Cons: Fuel efficiency, tired engine

1981 Ford Fairmont — This was going to be my great "sleeper" project. I was going to drop a 302 / T5 combination into it and make a stealthy humble car. Too much rust, too much cost, and I wasn't ready to tackle such a job while still working a crap job and living at home.

Pros: Shared "FOX" chassis with the 79-93 Mustang, V8 fit perfectly, sleeper look.

Cons: Rust, no resale value whatsoever
