Re: RAd leak
I wouldn't waste my time with Canadian Tire. You should be dealing with Napa, or Carquest, or someone similar. They offer better-quality parts, at prices that are generally more competitive.
I advertized my Crown Vic for sale a couple of weeks back because at the time I was considering purchasing a new car. Tonight I signed the papers on a new vehicle - I am only awaiting financial approval. I will need to get rid of my Crown Vic if everything goes as planned.
I believe you said you lived in Ontario at one point. My Vic has many new parts (I'm actually embarrassed to state how much I spent on it this year alone). Naturally an '85 Vic won't sell for much even if in pristine condition. Mine isn't pristine, but a reliable runner. What might interest you is mine has a rad that is only 1.5 years old, and is a quality rad that won't give you any hassles. I've also got two sets of tires - one set of winter tires driven only last winter (10000km), and a set of all-season tires (again, new in April this year). One set of tires alone is worth more than the car. If you want to buy my car, you'd be getting a good deal in tires, rad, and many more parts. Just an idea, because I really don't think anyone is going to buy this with the intention of keeping it on the road - too many people want something more glamourous. I'm replacing it because I'm at a point where I need something newer, and more fuel efficient.
