[attachment=2415][attachment=2415]Hello guys. I recently aquired a 2002 P71 that is my new daily driver. It runs nice but needs a little TLC. I do not have any affiliation with law enforcement just heard good things about these cars and wanted one for a while.

    Hello Everyone,

I recently bought my first Crown Vic, a 2008 PI in charcoal, no spotlight, and it has exceeded my expectations. I've had sensible cars my whole life, and I finally wanted something just fun without breaking the bank. I'd considered getting an 80's GM f-body. While cool, they would need a lot to get them running well and looking good again. The CV is no sports or muscle car, but I was surprised at the pickup and the cornering ability.
It's my DD, and it puts a grin on my face when I punch it a little. I put Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's on there, and they stick to the road like glue. Road noise isn't bad at all. I'm not planning to do too much to this car. Some new carpet and maybe recovering the seats (and add some foam support - they are sagging). Down the road I might opt for an upgraded exhaust. First things first. It appears to be in good shape and taken care of, but I think it needs some new belts. I'll probably have the shop go over everything and change the oil, trans, diff fluids, flush the radiator, check the ball joints and bearings. The brakes are good.
I will take advantage of the expertise on this sight. You all have done a great job sharing your knowledge and experience!
Scott G

Hi, All.
Just found this forum. I am a long time panther owner. trading my Aerostar on my first one in 2000 a 1989 Crown Vic. she was my sound quality competition car. winning the 2002 USACi 0-150 Pro Sound quality World Championship. She died before I could repeat my championship in 03. then came our 89 Town car. pretty much kept her stock till she was killed in 2014. We also had an 1996 Merc Grand Marque. Also in 2009 owned a 2004 Marauder for a week then got screwed by the dealer.
In 2014 my wife found our field find a 1984 Lincoln Town Signature.
and just last Nov I found my new toy. My 85 Crown Vic 2 dr with 66K on her.

yeah, I have had a few panthers.

Hello, I am a 25 year old, life long Ford fan. I've always preferred rear wheel drive full frame vehicles. I drove a grand Marquis as a cab driver (and the stupid Dodge caravans), My grandmother used to have a 1988 Lincoln Town Car, while my step grandfather had a 1995 Crown Victoria that had 450000 miles when he sold it to a friend for scrap. Anyway I am looking for a beater budget car after my now ex crashed her Buick Regal. (It's repairable, but I lost my job due to no transportation, as I had an hour long commute.she feels guilty, so she offered to purchase me something for me so I can get back to work.)

Hello everyone,
I am a former member from since 200?
for some reason I could not log into my account anymore and tried to re register with no luck. I googled and found this forum and I am glad I did. I live in FL and owned 2 CVLX since 2000. The first was a 1998 LX and my current 2005 LX. I found very helpful in the past. I had trouble with the blend door, intake manifold (crack) and had a spark plug thread strip out on me. I had good advice from some of the members with these issues, especialy the TIME-SERT. that fix lasted me for more then 60k till I sold the car. I am having intake manifold issue with my 2005LX leaking in the front. Seems like they will never get this right. I am seeking advice on replacing the intake with the newer FORD RACING part# M9424P46 but need to know if this is the right choice. The VIN code for the engine is W (8th digit).
Here are some pictures of the engine. I would greatly appreciate some help on this issue.[img][Image: 20170102_151413_zpsl5s4ltjv.jpg][/img][img][Image: 20161009_184123_zpstrfyfc9s.jpg][/img][img][Image: 20161009_184212_zpss0ace7v2.jpg][/img]
