Nice choice. Hope they can start working backwards and forwards in 5 year increments.

LOL  sorry I'm sure it a nice car...

A buddy of mine, his Mother had one in high school. Her name was Virginia, so we called the car "The Virge-mobile"  :D

My buddy had one in the Army in 1982. We called it the "Deathmobile"..

Looks like a nice load for the Micro-Trains open auto racks to me. Seem to recall seeing many, many, Fairmonts riding on or in them.

I had an 81 Futura 2 door that I swapped an entire 1985 Mustang GT drivetrain into and later shoehorned a 460ci (bored and stroked to 472ci) into it.
The car never realized it's full potential as I never got a decent posi rear axle into it, but man would it smoke that one tire!

That was my thought, great for the junkyard or on jacks on a front lawn...

I am sorry to admit I had one of these as my very first automobile. It was a blue, 2 door that was purchased from the little ol' lady across the street. I swear the car had literally never accelerated past 25mph, so the first three months I owned it I would hammer the accelerator to remind the car it had more then two forward gears!

Very nice for the 80s crowd.  What's next, the Chrysler K-car?  Or an N scale AMC Pacer or Gremlin?

With Atlas it'll probably be a Ford.

Wow, just the thought, an open autorack full of Gremlins or even better, Pacers. What would scream disco 70's better?   ;D
