    Me too. My boys got all excited when they saw it on TV the other day. They said "Dad! Look at that old woody station wagon!"

    1980 - 1985 Caprice Estate. I can see the Caprice grille and 1980-85 Headlights. It's hard to tell there's a hood ornament with that blurry video, I had to slow to quarter speed.

    How well do you people know your wives? If someday you get home and she's wearing a Rasta haircut and a beaver fur tonga, beware

    She's a good cook, it's free food, and she has an RV. I'm in love...........but my wife won't let me bring her home.

    Your wife is probably afraid she would get served for dinner. Like the RV lady says, "all meat is edible". I guess, with the appropriate mallet, all meat could even end up tender, Sir

    The food didn’t look to bad. Something tells me that sweet lady isn’t married though

    She was, until she packed her husband into thousands of dumplings:stirthepot: This is one black widow of which you don't want to ruffle feathers on. Go knock yourself out, with that. But, don't ever let her catch you cheating

    Pretty impressive you were able to determine that. I always thought it was a FoMoCo product.

    I forgot about Fords and I was only thinking in terms of G.M. when I posted that (odd, I own a Mercury.)

    On second thought, it probably is a Ford Country Squire from 1982 - 1987:

    1: The front license plate location is on the Driver's side.
    2: The Ford badging's on the driver's side of the grille (I can only see a shadow but still.)
    3: Ford Country Squires appear from a distance to have the same general kind of grille as a Caprice (Mercury grilles differ, plus Mercury Wagons had protruding corners on the headlights.)
    4: The trim looks like a Ford.
    5: 1979 - 1981 models have a bumper with more grille vents.
    6: 1988 - 1991 models' front ends aren't shaped the same (they're rounder) and they moved the Ford badging to the middle of the grille.

    Clearer video:

    I re-watched the "clearer" video posted above. Definitely looks like FoMoCo to me.

    I’d put money on country squire but the grill looks, like you said, a caprice or maybe colony park. I’d be willing to bet for legal reasons that all the badges and or hood ornaments were removed or blocked out maybe?
