I'm fairly certain that's an '82 Mercury Cougar wagon (yes, they exist) or its Ford counterpart the Granada.

I owned an '81 Cougar sedan.  Ugly as hell, but even with the stock straight 6 I could probably dust just about anyone.  I was on my way into work in Philly one morning in the wee hours and decided to see how fast I could go cruising down the Northeast Extension.  I had the southbound lanes to myself, and all I remember was that I managed to peg the speedometer a complete 360 from 0 to 0 before I chickened out and dropped back to road speed again (the speedometer maxed out at 80 or 5mph., so it wasn't quite as impressive as it sounds until you realize I had about a quarter of a dial of emptiness to overcome past 80 before pegging the needle).

I wound up giving the car away when I moved out of state (I only paid $200 for it used) and have regretted it ever since.

One thing I noticed is that if someone has bad data in their DNA tree (ie, their tree is wrong), you can still have it confuse things and show as a tree hint.  I have that with one match in particular in which I suspect the actual match is a generation or three back, but because the other person added a child to an incorrect father it shows as a match for me.

She mentions this around the 6:30 mark.

FWIW, you may have (slightly) better luck searching for him as Jasper Heidenreich.  Orton's his mother's family name. ;)

+TheRuthlessRanter The promo's he cuts at live events are great, so it confuses me why he acts the way he does on the mic on tv. They probably tell him to act like the way he does.

I had the Mercury counterpart of this - an '81 Mercury Cougar.  Those cars were horribly underrated.  I was getting well over 30mph on that car when I bought it for $200 back in 1996 or so.  It wasn't until after I gave it away (moved out of state) that I discovered that it was the same body they used on Mustangs and the like in the day.

I managed to get my Cougar up to somewhere around 120 or maybe even more heading down the interstate (wee hours, had the road to myself) before I lost my nerve and dropped back to road speed again. I'd literally pegged the needle back to 0, so I have no clue what my actual speed was besides "way too fast and highly illegal".

Always a treat when we're back in the Freedom area. I never expected to find one of the best Chinese restaurants I've ever experienced in rural Maine, but there's a gem in Unity. Prices aren't bad, and the food is always great. Highly recommended if you're ever in the area!

When this place changed hands, we were excited to try it out again. Turns out, it had the exact same menu, or close enough that we couldn't tell otherwise right down to the same staff and really bad food. Mind you, the place *looked* awesome - the fresh paint and new decor is terrific, but finding the same low quality food (albeit at a cheaper price than before) was a huge let down. If you want decent Chinese, there are tons of alternatives in town with better quality fare.

Perhaps the largest sandwiches known to mankind. I'd gripe about having to pay $ for a sandwich, but when it comes out and its the size of a baseball mitt, you realize its actually quite inexpensive for the sheer amount. We stop in when we can - its probably one of the best local secrets around.
