  1. Whether it's you winter beater or your 2nd car beater, let's see it. Also give a little info on it. I love the idea of having a beater, but if I could I'd be driving the stang year round. It hasn't rained here in over a month:mad:

    Here's mine. 1994 Crown Vic police interceptor, 130,000 miles, cd, $1800 total after new wheels and tires( I love ebay now). I never thought I'd drive something that got worse gas mileage than the mustang, I take back all the complaining I ever did lol. I love it though, it gets me around with COLD a/c and it it extremely reliable. I'm thinking if I change the o2 sensors it'll help with the gas mileage. I hate this automatic though, although it is much better than the stock c4 I used to have in the mustang. Stomping on it at 65 delivers a solid kickdown and acceleration. Not bad for such a fat car. For you interstate drivers, you can't beat the cop car. Man people are so courteous now :rlaugh: Future plans include, possible mustang 4.6 engine swap, suspension, and a paint job if I feel like it. Here's some pics.

  7. hahaha, yeah. and I live fairly close to work, so I only fill up like twice per year. :p

    even though some people would call me a heathen for owning this car, I have learned a lot about suspension as well as other performance parts because of it. cuz let's face it, you need to do a lot to make Hondas go! :flag:

    ^ After I finished modding it, aka, adding a Stick On. Eventually there will be a computer in the trunk running Linux, hooked up to the Head Unit to be an mp3 server (And so the passanger can play Doom or watch Movies)eventually.

  16. I actually have anice car now: 98 Mercury Grand Mraquis with 80,000 miles. In the past though:
    Big ol' station wagon with the shelf paper wood siding,($200)
    Pickemup truck, ($300)
    Ranchero, ($500), flloor optional
    Merc. of some type that finally blew head gasket($150)
    Torino that was totaled($300): We starightened the frame by tying a logging chain to a tree stump and taking off real fast :rlaugh: Actually, it worked. The car would jerk at the end of the chain and pull the car completely off the ground in the back. The measurements came within 1/8" of each other and alot of caved in panels popped out before the frame rail tore and we stopped.
