This page holds all rock bashing pictures and info!
Here is a photo of the car taken on July 2 2005 Last week i had some fun with a few friends of mine. We ... Show moretook the results of the poll, and listed well you got it we ROCK BASHED! I tried to keep the car running and moving so i have to not damage any moving parts as in the wheels or any thing near the engine. So Fist off i did a brake stand in the grass - not a good idea i blew the rear tire off the rim in about 8 seconds... whoops so now the tire is flat as you can see in this photo thers not much left of it.
here you can see how much damage was done to the body. I backed into a HUGE rock thats about 5x5x5 and weighs so much nothing can move it... but when i backed into this thing with the faimont, my friend watching said i moved it about a 1/2 inch...... yeah that hurt my neck oh well.. :) sorry about the dent fairmont:( Show Less

Hey this is my 1978 Ford Fairmont!! This thing is junk its not street leagal... never will be... This picture shows the old rust bucket on our front cement with the rear door missing, hood gone, and dents everywhere! I put this car on car doamin because it runs! It was sitting outside in our yard for about 13 years when my parients got a newer car and let this one sit. (rear wheel drive in winter is horrible) Last year 2004 i had some time on my hands and wanted to get it running. So we did this is a huge V8 engine my dad threw in it about 13 years ago and only got about 1000 miles! i will tell more about the car later
This is where i HIT THE GAS BABY oh yeah this thing moves let me tell you the muffler fell off and it only has a cat on so its really noisy so when you hold her in 1st gear and give her oh its so sweet! like i said she moves i wish i could take it on the road so bad... but with no lights, no floors, no muffler..... no FRAME not good..! the break lines were all rusted off, so we bent our own lines from the master cylender around to the front wheels so we have 2 brakes.. front only! better than nothin...
I hate to show this but this was shot sometime in the 80's? With everything intac,shinny,& new! What a differance wisconsin winters and a few years & maybe a sledge hammer... can make... :(
This is a picture of the ford's rear. It would have been ok if i would not have backed the thing into a huge tree twice... But who cares! This picture was taken last year, so i can update for today. The rear gas tank fell off and is dragging. The only support thats holding it is the filler cap! (the tank never held gas since i had it running, it had huge rust holes in it.. we have a wheel horse gas tank mounted in the front fender area.
Update as of sunday june 12th (New fuel line from rigged gas can to fuel pump) (covered transmission cooler line with rubber hose where the metal line rusted) i drove the car around a little when i heard this loud THUMP and then dragging... Oh crap i said now what.. Well i get out thinking the transmission fell off or a wheel locked up. To my suprise the gas tank that was no longer in use just decieded to fall off! It was hanging/dragging by a small rubber fuel line and some wires where the fuel gauge hooked up to! Easy fix Got my wire cutters cut both objects off threw the tank on the scrap pile and away i went! (note my automatic trunk pull down- a lug nut wrench that weighs about 15 pounds:)
Any body care for a ride around the yard? You will soon be able to click a link and watch a video of the ford running and moving! Show Less
