Crossed the 160K mark as of recently. I’ve officially put 50,000 miles on the car since I bought it four and a half years ago. With the exception of a few minor curveballs here and there, it’s been extremely reliable and dependable thus far, and seems to be getting better with age (just like fine wine).

So to celebrate and reward its steadfast durability, I gave her an oil change as always per every 5,000 miles, followed by a bubble bath thereafter. Not too dark when draining the old oil out, and the dipstick still indicated full beforehand.

As a late Christmas gift, for being so good this year, she’s also being rewarded with a new set of shoes, and they look great now that I finally had the time to put them on. Case in point:

Last but not least, a little something from JEGS came in the mail which will give a breath of fresh air into the suspension (in addition to the new shocks installed back in November). Once I get back from my New Year’s Eve/Day vacation, and the time is right, I’ll swap the old ones out. They were thoughtful enough to throw in some cleaning wipes with the shipment, which will surely come in handy!

Kudos to those who have been such a great help along the way - even with non-car related advice and support over the years. Your input is, and always will be, the cornerstone of this community.
Wheels look great. I love that color. Happy new year and be safe.

Swapped out the screaming banshee belt along with an idler and tensioner on the 2010. Used a gatorback style belt so hopefully she'll be quiet on damp mornings. Plus I discovered the intake leaking also. Get a crown vic they said it'll be great they said. I still love these cars, they're both just being a little finicky right now. Kinda like women.
