Since I was 14 I really wanted a 1977-1979 T-Bird, and thought of the Lincoln of the same gen as being too stodgy and a granny car.

Later I came around to the looks of the Lincoln and all the advanced features. Finally I found a '77 two years ago and it became my daily driver. It was great and I thought I'd never find a comparable car, and I'd tried plenty new and old.

I was selling some parts I'd collected and the guy that bought drove up in a clean shiny black 3rd-gen Town Car. I was floored whenever it pulled up. I flipped. I couldn't believe I'd never noticed these cars before but at that moment I HAD to have one.

It took me three-months but I finally found a black-on-black with a black "panty lace" top. One-owner and just amazing condition. I paid $8,200 for it.

I had to have two cars with safety features like ABS and traction control, airbags especially, so I sold the Mark V and found this 2004 Grand Marquis for $3,300. It is also a one-owner, all of the paperwork in the glovebox. I'm floored by the condition and everything works like new!

I'm a Panther fan for life now. Nothing compares, new or old. The last real CAR, not just an automobile, not just a conveyor box. Yeah, you can't get a bench front seat in any car these days, enough said.

Here's some pics and I'm posting a help thread because I actually want some help with the old Town Car. Been prowling this forum for a very long time and finally decided that since I got the Marquis I kinda belong here.

Any other Dallas guys on board?

So I've recently purchased a 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis. I paid one hundred dollars to buy it, and about 350 to get it repaired and registered. The car's fender says it is fuel injected, but there is a two-barrel carburetor where the TBI should be. I have replaced the power steering pump and box, as well as the lines. The thing works remarkably well for being a 33 year old hunk of garbage (which I am told has 650,000 miles on it), but I reckon I still have work to do. I will direct myself to the help forums, but if anybody wants to offer some advice here, I'll list what I need to do to it and see who bites:

The carburetor is still there... That needs to go.
The padding on the roof has disappeared from sun-rot. I might want that fixed
The transmission leaks, and I may opt to preemptively rebuild or replace it.
The gas pedal is loose. I suspect a loose throttle cable, as I refuse to believe anything is this lethargic and unresponsive by design.
The driver's door is loose. As is the passenger's door.
The paint is going missing. I was thinking of painting it something bright, like Mary-Kay Pink.

I'll likely bring these concerns to the help sections as I choose to address them, but I like to get a head start on things. As I need to, for this car does not like to drive in the cold, nor does it go anywhere in a hurry.

Stumbled across this forum on tappa talk. I picked up a used 2006 p71 that was a village official car. Had 58k on it 2277hours. And 137pages of maintenance records. I just replaced all the calipers, pads and rotors along with an s.s. brake line kit when I flushed the system and did the brakes.

Only future plans are stereo, paint (it's a flakey white car) tints and a drop with some coys 33 style wheels with trim rings in 18" or 20" haven't decided yet. Oh and a tune. [Image: edfc73e0b6f747012fe4ad5bb0ed0186.jpg][Image: 2b93f39975407bb189ddaf9b3e8129b8.jpg]

Good evening. I have a new to me 95 GM. Having trouble removing the rear spark plugs. Do I need to take hoses off or is there a way to do this.
