Few products of late 1970s Detroit are remembered fondly today, but sometimes history can be too harsh. Take the Ford Fairmont, a model offered in a variety unimaginable to today's vehicles. You could buy Fairmont as a station wagon, a sedan or stylish Futura coupe (featuring a factory-optional vinyl roof) with either a four-cylinder, inline 6 or V-8, and up to 33 mpg on the highway. On this date in 1978, a Ford Fairmont Futura became the 100 millionth vehicle built by Ford; the company would sell slightly fewer Fairmonts in that model year than it will sell Focuses and Fusions combined this year. If you want to see a Fairmont in action today, look no further than the nearest dragstrip:
