    If you've never experienced it before, his Towncar is an amazing machine. They should have built them like that from the factory!!

    recently installed rear discs on large marge. also installed new axle bearings and seals, and installed one good used axle shaft.
    still need to do the big brakes and the HO conversion.
    i got antique tags in her now, cost me 150 dollars but the registration is permanent and the car does not require a safety inspection.

    i attended cruise night 7/9/16 in pottstown pa, kind of a cruisers reunion, i wish more people would have attended, got to catch up with a few of my friends from back in the day, also learned that many have passed away. I am a lucky man to have been cared for by so many gmners. The credit goes to God for my fine friends, before i get all teary eyed here, you guys on gmn are the best extended family a mang could have.

    Marge looks good. Was it well received at the cruise in? Been thinking of taking my 88 to some around here but I am a little concerned people may think it's too new.

    I second that! I think they look best in dark colors with the wood trim.

    Between those HPP wheels and rear discs, I bet she's already getting better to drive. Grrr this makes me want to buy a tow package '89 LTD CV wagon in the same color.... there's one locally but owner wants way too much for it! And hey, you guys in Skippyville deserve some credit too. You're doing an excellent job on my '89, plus you (along with numerous other forum members) have helped me with troubleshooting, dodging bullets, etc. I'll be a lifetime member and customer at this rate.
    2011 Crown Victoria P7A "Briana". Primary project.
    This summer: Maintenance, handling upgrades, and more!

    Slicktopped 1989 Grand Marquis "Ebyt". Secondary project.
    Parked in a barn, awaiting major paint & body work, finishing touches.

    Slicktopped 1985 Grand Marquis "Eva". Tertiary project.

    I am not in the market for additional panthers at this time. Briana, Ebyt, and Eva are all I need. If that changes, I will change this line accordingly.

    Awesome Scott. Shes looking good and so are you behind that drivers seat.

    I wonder sometimes if people notice the rear discs on these cars (the converted ones of course) and question how they got there, upgraded or stock...

    Nice work!

    Uhm, if he's behind the driver seat then who's in it, his evil clone?

    The brakes thing, kinda doubt it, unless said people had one of these cars at some point and were doing their own work on it and actually remembered any of it. Someone who's not familiar with state of automotive affairs some 30 years ago will probably not even know what the car is, let alone know what it should or should not have as far as factory equipment goes.
