    Default my 86 LTD Crown Vic

    Just wants some opinions. I've already replaced the speedo wire and reader, rear drums and shoes, rear shocks, all belts, and put on a glasspack straight pipe, no dual exhaust yet but its coming. Just want to know what i can mod or replace to make it run greater than a modern crown vic. I want it to look classic not ghetto fabulous and I'm sure most of you feel the same way from what I've seen.

    -Now the good stuff.

    most likely, it was there when i got it and i havent looked into it yet. I'm 18 and i just got out of high school yesterday so im not a pro but i do love cars, and i have put in more work into my car than anyone else my age. Originally i was lookin at a 69 grand prix, but i don't have the time or the money to do a full restoration seeing as im goin off to college, but i wanted a car that i could work on but could drive at the same time so this ltd caught my eye. I was thinking about putting some Cregars on it cause i hate these turbines, well they are beautiful but a pain to keep clean.

    Looks good, but please do yourself a favor and pick up a real jack and a set of jackstands. Those bumper jacks are not exactly very safe, and using a ramp under the axle will allow a lot of drop before the springs load up and stop it. Could be enough to crush you.

    Thats what I was thinking. Jack stands even make me nervous you would never get me under a car being held up by a bumper jack.

    Nice '86 2-door!!! Motor sounds great. Gears and a dual exhuast should wake that car up. This thread should be moved to the Reader's Ride section.
