Although its exterior was only slightly redesigned from the prior year's model, Ford added quite a bit of excitement to the 1969 LTD by "jamming the forward compartment with some muscle" and drastically redesigning the interior. Watch as host Bud Lindemann reviews this 429 equipped LTD in this vintage Car and Track road … »
In 1965 Ford tried to sell potential LTD buyers on the fact it was quieter than a Rolls Royce because, as well all know, interior noise is a huge factor in car buying. 15 years later, even though the LTD's low decibel advantage had turned into a barely audible tie, Ford was still proud of that fact the LTD was as good … »
Now, we can't say for sure what sort of transaction was captured on film by the Google Street View photography vehicle; perhaps the Illinois gentleman with the roll of bills is negotiating for the purchase of an 80s Ford LTD. Whatever it is, we're seeing free enterprise in glorious effect here. Take that, Commies!… »
You see how
obsessed dedicated I am to shooting Alameda street-parked cars for this series? Even in the midst of a rainstorm howling in off the Pacific, I'm busting out the camera when I spot a cool car parked on Alameda's busy main drag! And it was worth it in this case, because nothing makes a beater LTD look tougher … »
Even though an 80s Ford Crown Victoria with a 302 under the hood probably doesn't stand much of a chance of beating the nimbler cars, we're still rooting for Team Sin City LeMons.

Most of us don't think "Ford station wagon" when we think of handlin' machines, but… »
Friday's Choose Your Eternity poll was won by the '71 Datsun 510 wagon, which beat the Gremlin (though not by an ass-whooping margin). Today we're going to go seriously low-buck, with a pair of projects available for a mere five Benjamins... or maybe even less, depending on the ruthlessness of your dealmaking chops...
Today's Down On The Street car could be looked at two different ways. You could see it as a beat-up heap, suitable for nothing but lowering property values and no doubt owned by the evil silhouetted guy on the Neighborhood Watch signs, or you could look at it the way you'd look at a once-glorious mansion now fallen on… »
Car buyers in 1965 faced quite the dilemma. It goes without saying that the reading on a decibel meter inside the passenger cabin is the number one priority when making a car-purchase decision- everyone knows that- but say you're geared up to buy a Rolls-Royce and now you find that the new LTD registers a quieter…»
