    Cool Noobie here

    I recently joined here after looking around, liked the look, seems like a good bunch. Was a couple days waiting to be able to post, but I'm here now. I tested by welcoming someone else a day or so ago.

    Car I'm here for is a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis. I love driving the old girl, but we are retired so not a daily driver, never was a DD as a matter of fact. Still well under 100,000 miles and we put them on her ourselves taking mostly road trips. Actually, living where we do, even a trip to Walmart feels like a road trip these days. I also like the pic up loader.

    Car looks great. Welcome!

    Your pic highlights my favorite part of the GM from 83-up: the full width taillights.

    Welcome!
    Great looking car.

    I picked up a low miles '98 last year. Mine is a DD, so it won't be long before mine hits 100k miles. I'll probably hit that mark early 2023.

    Thank Y'all! I feel like I almost know y'all after reading posts & threads like the Mustang Rustang one and the whole thread on the '98 Mercury ... enjoyed the reads I did. I've seen that Mustang when it was Red, over off 221 north of Bedford towards Big Island I think, the hood stuck out in my mind's eye,

    I liked CVC's '98 but I wonder, had a friend took one to a body shop (he didn't like the vinyl) and they peeled the roof off & painted the top only, I thought it looked fine. His was not the light blue under dark blue which I like on yours. His was a white maybe, cream maybe and always dirty looking top over a green lower, that roof needed to go away.

    Woah you’re local!

    I got the Rustang from Rustburg (no lie) but found some a registration from Glasgow so it could have been spotted up towards Big Island.

    Ooops, not 221, it's 122 up to Big Island.
