    Talking The Flying Brick - 90 CV CS

    Ok here are the pics to my new 90 wagon. I bought it from 87_crown_vic for $600. This is going to be my project for school to redue the body on it. It won't go under the knife until probably August. Until then I am doing maintainence things on it and cleaning it up. Anyway Project Flying Brick is here!





    Look at that fat ass!


    How the paint is.



    Look at that huge single exhaust.lol


    About the worst of the rust on it.


    It has a rear spoiler on it.






    And remember if you try to jack my shit, it is protected by the club. LOL


    Anyway I will be updating this as I go. Tune up to come this next weekend and some interior cleaning plus I will rinse it off also, weather permitting.

    Lots of things in store for this sucker.

    Looks good, mang! Even with the bad clearcoat, it's still a beautiful car.

    So other than the body work, may I ask what you've got planned for the thing?

    Nice project Zack, looks to be pretty perfect for your plan. Nice interior and overall good condition, just lacking in luster. Can't wait to see the final grade!

    Mods performance wise will be, HO upper, 65 mm throttle body, headers, catless H pipe, and duals after that (undecided on mufflers right now). Roller rockers and a shift kit will be good for now. A HO probably after school is done.

    Thats a nice car, pretty rust free too. Looks real good and will be perfect for what you want to do with it. How many miles on that pig?

    Nice! Now I'm not an expert on this, but does that mean it's a k-code rear axle?

    Oh, okay. I bet it jumps pretty good with the 3.27s, though, huh?

    Yep steel side. I will probably shave the corner lights on the rear quarter panels. It was undercoated so the underside is perfect. Those 3.27's do help, she gets going pretty good. It is wierd driving a car that is actually quiet for once.lol Oh and now that I have a car that can fit 15s Cragars are SO going on this thing.

    i hope that it treats you right. i know i didnt get to have much fun with it, but i think it was well worth the money. now dont forget.....share it with your dad. if you would have pulled up today, you would have been confused when getting it. there was another waggin up there, but it was a creme color w/ wood. in the same condition. i just hope that you have fun now being a box owner. now you have a 5.0

    Yeah I was tinkering with it today. Already love the 5.0. I just priced headers and offroad h pipes on ebay. Damn they are cheap.

    Yeah my dad drove it today, he was smiling ear to ear when he came back.lol

    i bet he was surprised at the price also. hell, maybe if you are done with the body work, and you get some tinkering done, you can take it to SF. just a thought to show it off and use cruise control. i need to work out some bugs w/ the CV i got. i think the factory amp is messed up since i can barely hear the radio up all the way, the wiper switch needs cleaned up or a wire fixed since they dont quite work right, and the heat is messed up. i also need to get the oil leak fixed after I get Baby on the road. cant wait to listen to all my bass again. i just hope you have fun and now you have met another member from here.

    remember to get the windshield fixed before it cracks on ya. i just thought i would bring that up. its funny how when you drive that thing how you hear the road and not the engine. its a damn good car, and is in caring hands. build it up, and have some fun with it, it was deprived by being owned and not really driven.
