Hello, new to this great forum after being turned onto it by a friend after purchasing my first P-71. I drove them for years as a suburban cop and I'm intimately aware of their capabilities and dependable reputation. Was wondering what the consensus is regarding my purchase: I snagged a 2008 DHS/U.S. Customs & Border Protection Field Operations car. 11,600 miles & 27 (yes - Twenty Seven) Idle Hours. Absolutely perfect minus the semi dry-rotted original Goodyear RSAs which will be replaced soon. Four small holes in the roof where the light bar was mounted, now puttied over and touch-up painted. She still smells new and you'd be able to eat off both the engine bay and interior she's so clean. My mechanic gave her his ultimate blessing after checking everything including the undercarriage while up on a rack. She's tight, no squeaks, squeals or rattles and everything works as new. All fluids look and smell as they should... an oil and filter change, air filter swap and a bottle of fuel treatment for now. CarFax shows 2 oil changes and the steering shaft recall, all done at a Ford dealership in Oregon - that's it. I think it was fairly priced at $10,800. Opinions? Comments? Look forward to sharing pix once she's registered and driven daily.

All things considered, that ain't too bad I think. Congrats on nabbing such a low mileage Vic...Welcome to the site!

Welcome, Sounds like you snagged one of the dwindling supply of low mile Vics.

Welcome! Can't wait to see what it looks like! Definitely a fair price. I gave 6800 for mine with 68,000 and 127 hours. I see them come across the guys I bought mine from with 20k miles and comparable hours for 9-11,000 all the time, so definitely good as far as their sales.
