An EXTREMELY rare 1963 Ford Fairlane Squire Wagon! This wagon has spent all of its life in Oregon and Washington State. I am the third owner. It comes with a 260 V-8 engine, power steering, power brakes, automatic transmission, roof rack, power rear window. It is all original for the exception of the passenger's fender. Everything is all there. Nearly all of the panel trim is there, but a couple pieces. I will be taking a picture that shows the layout of all of the pieces, so one can see what is there, and not there. The body is in great shape. Any rust is located in the rear cargo area and spare tire area. All of the glass is great with no cracks. The car does not start due to a missing gas tank(I know where there is one) and the previous owner lost the ignition key, so he would touch wires to start the car with an external fuel container. The car have been undercover all of it's life; from grandma's garage, to a carport in Hillsboro, OR, to my garage in Washington State. It has a replacement tailgate, but comes with the original. The upolstery, dash area, door panels are in very good shape. It does need a replacement steering wheel, and a new headliner. have owned it for 1 1/2 years, but have never attempted to start it. The engine turns free Everything under the hood is all original. I am in no hurry to sell, so no lowballers. I know how rare it is. I will be posting pictures on Wednesday, 2/20/2013.

There are many things I could call this exercise. A party is not one of them.
I've spent three days crammed in the axle well of this 1989 Mustang with nothing to keep me company beyond a trouble light, a DeWalt drill on the very last of its legs and billion razor sharp, red hot slivers of metal with an affinity for my most sensitive of regions. My joints are raw from crawling around on the concrete. I'm half deaf from the shriek of the spot weld cutter and the boom of the cold chisel and hammer.
Ford buyers appear to love their cars more than customers of any other automotive brand, returning back to the American automaker when it comes time to purchase their next vehicle. According to a study by Experian Automotive, six of the top 10 vehicles for customer brand loyalty wear badges from the Blue Oval. That includes the Ford Fusion (62.4 percent), Ford Edge (57.9 percent), Ford Five Hundred/Taurus (56 percent), Ford Freestyle (51.9 percent), Ford Escape (49.4 percent) and the Ford Focus (47.57 percent).

Other vehicles making up the top 10 include the Toyota Prius (52 percent), Chevy Impala (51.7 percent), Toyota Camry (47.8 percent) and Toyota Corolla (47.56 percent). This brings up an interesting question: With the closing of automotive brands like Saturn and Pontiac, where are those buyers to turn for their next automotive purchase?
Apparently, not back to General Motors. According to Experian, Pontiac owners are most likely to look to the Ford lineup for their next car or truck and Saturn shoppers will switch to Toyota or Honda - not particularly surprising given that Saturn was meant to compete with import brands. Experian predicts that GM's overall market share will fall from 20 percent to about 17.5 percent, with most of the slack being picked up by Ford, Honda and Toyota.
Custom cars generally fit into neat little boxes in terms of how they are used. For example, you're unlikely to see a modded Corvette going rock crawling; it's just not what it's made for (though we bet it'd look awesome, for a minute). In the same way, chopped, channeled and customized '50s hot rods aren't really meant to go racing. They look great and go fast, but they are generally more cruisers than sports cars.
However, if this video is any indication, the people of Finland don't adhere in these stereotypes, because this rodder is happy to play in the dirt with his lead sled.
According to the video, the driver is a member of the Ford-Freak Club of Finland, and he clearly knows how to have some fun. Possibly inspired by his country's great rally drivers, he gets the tail way out going around this gently curving gravel track. The stunt is somewhat reminiscent of the stock cars races on the sand at Daytona Beach, and this is probably close to what it sounded like too. Scroll down to watch a very cool Finn getting his hot rod a little dirty.
