It Was A Good Buy For A Quick A-b Car — This was a very strong car made by a company who has proven otherwise at times. The acceleration was ok given the size of the car, the handling was exactly what it should feel like to drive a big car, and the braking was decent. It needed brakes when I got it and some tranny work, but worked well before that. Sucked on gas, but was fun for me to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It was strong... the only 80's Ford I'd ever been in where even the A/C still worked

Cons: It's kind of bulky, and not the prettiest thing to look at...

Fairmont Futura — This is one of the strongest cars I have ever known! You cannot kill it, no major repairs have ever been done on it because guess what, it didn't need any. I mean sure, it's totally rusted and rotted, the rear door bottoms are held together by duct tape!!! But boy, it has one strong Ford engine! It's a big car, it's ugly as hell but I love it! Alot better than what's on the road nowadays... The car has about 200,000 miles on it and my family has owned it since about 1984, before that, it was a Hertz rental car. My mom drove this car every day for many many years. She wanted it sold a few years ago but I told her no way, I bought it off her two years ago for a dollar!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: strongest running car I've ever known

Cons: rusty as hell

This Car Was Interesting... — My father owned this car...I think he let me drive it one time...I can remember that the car felt big, even though it was a gas-sipper. The car was reliable and ran fairly well...
