    Those look like the seats in my '89 GS and my '91 GS only both my cars have blue seats. They are quite nice especially since mine are still fairly firm. I don't like my seats in my '91 LS compared to the seats in my GSs.

    Seats in my LS:



    Apparently I don't have pictures of the seats in either of my GSs, and they both reside about an hour drive north of me. Heres a pic of a shift tube on my seat:

    And a picture during my passenger seat power conversion:

    Ah... yeah... the LS/LX seats had the smaller pleats.

    The sad story of Truck 11345:
    https://www.copart.com/lot/47505838

    Backstory is that is one of my store's old delivery trucks. It was one of two original trucks to the store when it opened in 2009. Unfortunately about a few months ago the transmission started slipping. Our servicing shop found the ATF to be black, so it was changed with fresh fluid and some stop slip additive, and was fine for a few days. However, it started neutraling out when it got hot, and that makes for a pretty bad delivery vehicle. Some time ago, we added a third truck for extra business, so we got back down to two, which was troublesome. We expected to get 45's transmission rebuilt, but upper management decided against it so we got a truck sent from another store instead. That truck came with a camper shell on it, and we did not want to keep it on since it made for poor rearward visibility, so we stuck it on 45.

    45 did have all of it's badging and center caps, but I took them off for a friend with a Ranger. No harm for a vehicle that the company was writing off anyway.

    Last picture I have of it:

    Needs an AOD.

    Those 5R44E’s and other autos the modern era Rangers got seem really busy shifting and slip a bit much for my taste. My parents have a 97 with the 5r55e and it acts like a CVT programmed to 3000rpm until it hits 5th lockup.

    This has to be a woodgrain delete car. Price is up there but it's interesting seeing non-woodgrain Colony Parks.

    '85 County Squire: https://greenville.craigslist.org/ct...939261879.html

    I'd reckon to believe that's a southern car as the wheel wells and quarters look to be reasonably intact. Faded, but probably still really solid.


    '87 LTD CV: https://greensboro.craigslist.org/ct...936609469.html

    A few states up, but really ugly. Must have been parked next to the sun for a few years.


    '86 Grand Marquis: https://charlotte.craigslist.org/cto...931634015.html

    Price is a bit high, but good looking otherwise.

    The wagon looks like a good fixer upper. Nonfactory dual tailpipes, trailer hitch... hmmm. Like the stranger things reference.

    I think the slicktop may be ready to be a parts donor. That surface rust is bad and is a pain to fix.

    That was the crackhead '86 wagon that looked like it lived underwater for a bit. That '85 certainly looks much better. I certainly dig the faded blue color. Even though fresh paint would look good, it's not that ugly the way it sits.

    I wonder if the 2 x 4 is included with the sale as well as the bear? Why do people take screenshots of their iPhone pictures? I don’t get it.

    This wagon is probably going to a demo derby person. Sad. The dealer badge on the back is from Carolina Ford. It’s a southern non-rusty car. Too bad
