    Cool 1983 Mercury Grand Marquis 2Dr "Mercules”

    Well ladies and gentlemen, I am back in the panther game once again! After a two weekend adventure and concerns over movement and a lost title (Found and clear) I brought this gem home for 300 bucks! She's a diamond in the rough for sure, trans isn't working right and puking fluid (I think from around the pan gasket, not sure). There is a couple small rust spots I need to attend to, but nothing too bad.


    He runs great, too! San Antonio car all it's life


    Here's some pics from right after I cleaned up the Exxon-Valdez he left in the driveway of ATF...

    Holy cow, that's a screamin' deal for $300! Interior looks super clean, and parts of it are even color coded to match the exterior. Really like how it doesn't have the ditch lights/cornering lights too. I think she'll make an excellent street machine.

    I really like tan interior.

    Long term, I may stick to tan/peanut butter color. Very BMW-like

    Somehow the notion of referring to box interior as being "BMW-like" makes me laugh.

    Are the turbines savable at this point? Looks like the brake dust has been coating them for some time.

    I won't keep them forever. I do like the way turbines look with RWL tires, but I am eventually going to get some Bullitts.

    He can just say they're painted black. Black turbines with RWL tires FTW. That and glasspack sidepipes, GMGT I style.
