    The tach I got is still in my car, but the 7-segment readout is almost completely dead. The bar LEDs are fine though. Thinking of changing it out to something else. Don't remember how long it's been in there, but it's been at least 4 years. I know one segment died within like 6 months. I think there's half a dozen or so dead now.

      hm, wonder if I have enough space in the Conti's ash tray area for a triple gauge. Something like those would be not completely out of place with all the other digital nonsense.

          Ford Crown Victoria All Silver 16" OEM Wheel Set 1997 to 2002

          This is not a bad price. I have had a couple of wheels refurbished before and find this to be a good deal.

              Nice. My only gripe is that the family truckster/Vacation references are played out.

                My gripe is the ridiculous prices people are paying.

                  Unfortunately, the days of buying a car like that for a grand are long gone.

                    Those wheel covers are just strange. The price is spicy. Still likely a better product for the price than trying to restore a beat wagon.

                      Agreed. I'm definitely not a fan of them either. I wonder if it's because they're 14'' rims?

                            Anyone know how this would have been used? On top of a ski rack or a trunk mounted luggage rack perhaps?

                              Will only fit up to 87 as no two doors were produced after that.
