    That '79 is awesome. I love all the odd things that the first year panthers had. Even the clock looks like it has some weird extra trim on it.

    Even the vents have little chrome accents around them. Definitely makes them pop a bit more.

    What year did they stop using an expansion valve on the A/C system? I noticed that one does not have an accumulator in the normal spot.

    I am sometimes asked if my 88 is a former fire department car since it accidentally got painted scarlet red (long story from 2007). Mine is not, but this one looks legit:

    Of course I find it ironic that the fire department felt the need to order the third row seat and my cars still don’t have them...

    Too bad that FD wagon does not have the police package. Many of the FDs would order the police package especially in the 80s.
    It does have the HD suspension, which is ok. Interesting car. I always wanted a California FD car.
