I just picked up a 2008 CVPI with the street appearance package and a Setina interior partition. I'm a part-time LEO, and we occasionally use our personal vehicles, so I will be leaving the partition and gun rack in place. The car is in good shape for a 2008 from the northeast, so I'm just concentrating on maintenance. I hope to pick up tips on maintenance and troubleshooting on the forum Smile

Last Friday I bought a 2011 Crown Victoria LX with 88,000 miles on it. That doesn't seem like a big deal but, like in the movies, I tell you the now and then give you flashbacks.

I've been an "old car" nut as far back as I can remember. Now I'm an old "car nut."

I became enamored of police cars during the 1980s after the Blues Brothers movie came out. In the mid 80s I bought a retired Arizona DPS cruiser (1981 Gran Fury). Had it for several years. Unfortunately, quality was still lacking after the debacle of 1979 and I donated it to charity after the tranny went out for the second time.

Flash forward to the 21st century and I renewed my interest and bought a white 1989 Crown Vic police car (roof lights, rear cage, push bars). That car went to car shows. I also bought a red 1988 consumer Crown Vic for regular driving.

Kept those for several years and found myself getting interested in the later models for more modern equipment and comfort so I sold them and, in late 2012, I bought a 2008 P71 that was formerly a CHP car (came with some documentation). Someone had sprayed over the white parts but I could still see the wording through the spray paint so I had the car painted black. I've driven that for almost 5 years now. It's been very dependable but when it turned 170,000 miles I decided I wanted something with lower mileage and cruise control.

I spent the last several months looking for a lower mileage P71. Amazingly, there are a bunch of them here with 100,000 miles or less for reasonable prices but, alas, there was always something not quite right about the car or the deal.

Last week the 2011 LX came up. It had what I wanted plus a few extras. I'm retired so I won't be racking up the miles so it should last me a good long time.

What's up everyone? My name is Jacob, from the Texoma area. I moved up here a couple years ago from the Dallas area. Super excited to be apart of the community.

Today I picked up my first Panther Platform vehicle, a 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis LS w/ 62k miles. I couldn't be happier. It's in pretty decent shape for it's age/mileage, with a fair share of scrapes and dents from the previous owner. Overall though it's all things that can easily be fixed over time, and it's mechanically sound. I can't wait to get to modding and reading up on what all you guys have done and have to teach.

Thanks for existing,

I bought my 2000 grand Marquis wrecked from the auction block, I got it running using only used parts from the salvage yard, I still have more work to do on it, but with a total cost of 800.00 including the price of the car I think I'm doing awesome for a 115xxx miles on the car, clean stock interior, I will post a picture of how it currently looks in the morning

Not new to the car. When I retired I turned in a 1994 P71. My POV for many years was a 1997 P71. Before that I had a 1989 Mercury GM. I just found a low mileage 2006 P74. My grandson is getting the 1997. I have some minor issues with the 06 that I will post about in the proper forum. I hope the folks here are as laid back as those on the FALFiles. Thanks for having me.
