Re: 84 crown vic ltd questions
just by way of conversation, my plans for this car. first, waiting on some money, so I'm using that time to clean the car and fix burnt out ashtray lights and stuff. I like the explorer engine idea, but I've seen a nice carbureted engine on craislist also. right now I see a nice explorer engine with the gt40p heads. $800.
do I need a new fuel pump then, too?
The cruise control works perfect. This car drives and rides great, so new shocks and look at the brakes, which work great. tranny seems good, we already know about the motor, which does run, but...
I have a set of 4 H4 halogen headlights, with 100 watt highbeams, plus a set of 100 watt driving lights, I like to drive at night on two lane roads. (please don't drive with your foglights on) I have three CB radios to choose from, bearcat scanner, radar detector, xm radio, head unit and all, plus a big old subwoofer&. All this stuff is in my garage now, so I might as well store it in the big car! Did I mention I am a trucker?
probly should hook it all up, since it's gonna be in there anyway. Find someone who knows what they're doing to tint the windows...patch up the rust holes, maybe find another doorgate.
Sleeper is exactly what I have in mind, primer and patches on the outside, luxury and power on the inside. When I go on vacation 75 percent of the reason is just to drive, so mileage is not a consideration. I want to be comfortable. that decision was made 6 hours into the first day of such a trip in a toyota RAV4. 4 banger. great car, but not for traveling. I told the wife, "we're getting a wagon", she said "yup". she's kinda quiet, y'know. next trip not before november, probly not till spring, so I have time to be patient. Unfortunately the best mechanic I know wouldn't come with us when we moved to colorado. enough for now, sorry. I'll try not to run on so much, but I am really looking forward to this.
I will have more questions, thanks in advance for the help!!
