    Is it gonna be a road trip car, like the Boulevard Cruiser?

    Let me know how those tires do, Tire Rack is selling them cheap and I need a new set of tires for my van, and with how little miles I drive, may be my last set before I junk it.

    Nice wagon Scott! Plan on cleaning up the small mount of rust on those quarters? Looks super clean otherwise!

    Wow. I never realized there was that much room in the back of these. If you fold the seats down, you might be able to fit a Saturn wagon in there!

    One of the nicest GMCPs I've seen in years. Unbelievably clean for a northen car. And it's maroon! I've never seen a GMCP in that color before, and only once on an LTD CVCS.

    I think she'll turn out all kinds of awesome- bigger brakes and better suspension parts are just what these old tanks need!

    Slicktopped 1989 Grand Marquis "Ebyt". Primary project.
    Parked in a barn, awaiting body work and finishing touches come spring.

    Slicktopped 1985 Grand Marquis "Eva". Secondary project.
    Parked in a garage awaiting frame swap and SEFI 302 swap come spring.

    I am not in the market for additional panthers until Ebyt and Eva are up to snuff.

    Throw a low RAR in there to move that fat pig.
    If I end up keeping my Town Car, one of the first things I do after a new transmission will be gears, probably 4.10's since I don't do much highway.
