You might think of the Ford Fairmont as one of Ford’s snoozers from the 1970s and 1980s, but there is one model that still can create a little excitement: the Ford Durango. No, this is not the precursor to the bold and beautiful Dodge Durango; rather, it is a close cousin to the Chevy El Camino. The Ford Fairmont Durango was a special edition car/truck like the El Camino and the Ford Ranchero.
