OPP P7B ! - Thunder Vic - 12-23-2017 07:19 AM

Well I picked up my 2011 all black P7B Thursday night and I can say I am extremely impressed with this car. I have a cream puff 2006 GMQ Ultimate that I bought in September to use as a winter car but the more I looked at it the less I wanted to subject it to salt since it lived out its life in North Carolina. I was so impressed with everything about it that I had to buy another, and garage the 06.

Now onto to P7B, all I can say is what an impressive, stable, tight, solid, powerful, quiet, well designed machine. My first four hours in this car were in a terrible snow storm from Toronto to Ottawa. I felt very, secure in this car.

I have a set of steel wheels and 17x9 hoops at Weldcraft for widening (Hot Rod Magazine wheel and tire upgrade project) over the winter as I believe these cars are worth the teasing and grandpa jokes I get, but I must say lucky grandma and grandpa because I am hooked Smile !

These cars are addicting. My 06 was supposed to be my daily, but now it's a garage queen that only sees sunny days and car shows. So I picked up a 2010 p7b for my daily

Not your grandpas Grand Marquis

The feeling is mutual with the Panther platform. After owning mine for 4 1/2 years and putting almost 50,000 miles on it, it’s really grown on me and hasn’t given me any major issues. The only things that have broken or gone bad are the throttle body, radiator fan shroud, and intake manifold. Otherwise, it’s been rock solid and I can’t complain. Love driving it! Good

Sounds like you found another winner there. We certainly have a bunch of converts to the Panther life here, I'm approaching 20 years with a CV as my primary transportation. 12 years with my '99 and almost 7 years with the current '11.

Wow, great value ! I am all about that!

I have a 72 Demon 340 numbers match, 70 Camaro Resto Mod and a cream puff 88 Vette with 24,000 miles in the garage and once again I have to say this P7B is as much fun to drive as the others.

We got hammered up here with a good amount of snow and the old girl just plowed on through like a pick up even with the RSA's.

I took it in for a tranny and diff flush yesterday and the car is perfect, no evidence of being ditched, frame damage etc., phew.

I added a Scan Gauge II and the bugger gets decent mileage too.

Sorry for the enthusiasm here boys, but I love this car
