The Ford Country Squire was in production from 1950 until 1991. I had a friend whose mother drove one and I always remember feeling like I was floating on air when in motion; the endless brown leather seats that were cracked by the sun; the sound of its acceleration; and my friend’s mom’s huge sunglasses and cigarette hanging out of her mouth. But the thing that elevates the Ford Country Squire into legendary status for me were the rear seats in the back that faced each other, forming a little U shape, and a little table that folded down to reveal a magnetic game table! I always feel a pang of happy nostalgia when I get a rare sighting of one on the roads today.
