well... you all know who i am and my passion for these big cars... my fiance's 1990 Grand Marquis had the trans fry in it mostly... it drives great after sitting to warm up, but not cold... so we tok it to trans shop... found out it needed a rebuild... we declined and bought the 1986 Crown Vic... was listed for $1300 originally... looked few days later and it was $750... called today after talkin to trans shop and they had it for $500... well, get there and guy was shocked at my 1986 Grand Marquis and how it sounded and ran... told fiance what the Crown Vic needed and she said ok and guy knocked off $100 without me askin... so we paid $400 for the car and i am psyched to get to work on it!!! i am jealous since she gets the Vic and i have the Grand Marquis, but oh well... i get to tinker again with a Vic
washed and waxed car... started stereo install... and got cone filter setup installed... still need to do valve cover gaskets, clean IAC, and do a couple other mods... stupid smog pipe is busted under the hood so i have to pinch it off by cat convertors to kill that leak in exhaust since it gettin in the car....
update... got old fender off along with hood and bumper... gonna set replacement fender on till the rest of the parts are here to get car together again... slow progress, i know, but at least the car can be saved... the door is open because i am realigning the door since the fender got jammed into it in the accident knocking it outta whack... dont know how many more pics i can upload here since space is limited and already got rid of a few older pics i had
