just bought a 1986 Crown Vic...

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

Both look VERY good. That was a great deal on the Crown Vic. The LX model too.

Re: just bought a 1986 Crown Vic...
