Ford stubbornly resisted the winds of change, promoting its aging big cars on the basis of greater passenger space and the presumed safety of their “road-hugging weight.” But the public didn’t buy this cynical line — or as many of the cars. The entire Ford line won Motor Trend magazine’s “Car of the Year” award, partly because of the division’s ever-widening “Total Performance” campaign. Here our entire team will be discussing their favorites of the year from a variety of topics which include Best Performance, Best Action Movie, Funniest Movie, Best Movie Moment, Best Superhero Movie and Best Overall Movie. But it’s the costumes for Angela Bassett’s Ramonda and Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther (aka T’Challa) that best exemplify the film’s celebration of Afrofuturism, or the fusion of science fiction and fantasy with African culture. The Maverick kit, which was strictly for two-doors, included black paint accents, twin door mirrors, styled steel wheels, raised-white-letter tires, and special badging. The costume designer for Malcolm X, What’s Love Got To Do With It, Selma, and practically every Spike Lee film, she’s responsible for how we envision several generations of black heroes on screen.

The 1965 platform got a minor touch up for ’66, and LTDs gained “7-Litre” companions powered by the Thunderbird’s big 345-bhp 428 engine. Arriving at midyear in 1965 were the poshest big Fords ever, the $3300 Galaxie 500 LTD hardtop coupe and sedan, claimed to be “quiet as a Rolls-Royce.” The times were indeed a-changin’. Leading the 1970 line were modestly facelifted full-size Fords with “poke-through” center grille sections on LTDs and XLs, plus revamped rear ends on all models. A front stabilizer bar was standard, as was rack-and-pinion steering, offered at extra cost with variable-ratio power assist, a new item shared with several other Fords that year. Rack-and-pinion steering and front-disc/rear-drum brakes completed the basic specs. Introduced during 1975, it was conceived as just a slightly larger Maverick using the same chassis and drivetrains. A more-exciting 1984 development was a turbocharged 1.6-liter GT with 120 horsepower and a suitably uprated chassis. An optional 2.0-liter (121-cid) 52-bhp diesel four from Mazda arrived for 1984 — just in time for the start of a gas glut that quickly killed most all diesel demand in the U.S.
GL was renamed LX, and the dash was restyled a second time. Nevertheless, Granada bridged a big market gap at a crucial time, appealing to both compact buyers with upscale aspirations and big-car owners now energy-conscious for the first time. Market share, which had been sliding for a full decade, was down to 17.4 percent, the lowest since 1927, and seemed likely to go lower still. Engines were familiar — initially the 140-cid Pinto four, 200-cid six, and 302-cid V-8 — but there was a new all-coil suspension with modified MacPherson-strut front end geometry, which mounted the coil springs on lower A-arms. An optional five-speed manual came along for 1983. All-coil four-wheel independent suspension persisted throughout, with MacPherson struts and lower control arms fore, modified struts on trailing arms and lower control arms aft. Some of our costumes are in a jumpsuit style, which has the legs, torso, and arms all attached in one piece.
