You certainly are entitled to your opinion, but up in the Pocono mountains
of PA were he lives the 4 cy Toyota will likely get fewer MPG carrying him,
his wife, three children and the 'stuff' He owns two other vehicles, of
various types to use when needed. .
NADA list a 2004 4cy Camry with 24K on the clock at $13,600 average trade
and a 2004 V8 GM at $13,000. The GM
cost him $600 less and the Toyota which is not nearly as well equipped.
Good thing he did not need to finance the cost. He would have had to spend
$1,100 more in interest to finance the Toyota, over the GM for 36 month as
well Apparently the GM returns a better PERCENTAGE of the ACTUAL original
cost. Not bad when one considers Toyota dealers generally offer less than
average trade. ;)
besides that, when you factor in the size of the gm to the yoda, the panther
platform flm cars are allot bigger, and the fuel milage is not that
different. my 99 P71 C.V. gets a regular combined 25 mpg, and my father gets
a combined 27 mpg with his 99 P72 C.V and grand marquis LX
He was looking for at cars that he could buy with the 20K he had to spend.
The GM/GS IS the bottom of the line. My children and grand children learn
to drive at the Bob Bondurant school at Pocono Raceway or Dover. Other than
that I could not follow your point, the way you post is weird. Try again
I think what he was referring to was the stupid top post/ bottom post B.S.
Mike. I guess some people are not smart enough to remember what they posted
to, and need to read 500 lines every time they open a post. unlike some of
us that would rather read the answer to a question, not the 500 lines of
Obviously, more than just the people who have taken part in the conversation
are reading it (as Tom shows).
Actually, proper netiquette is that you post inline, rather than top-post.
It makes it easier to follow a conversation. One would think that an
engineer is smart enough to figure out how to post inline. Obviously, not
all engineers are smart enough to do this, however.
Another trick to rememebr is trimming the previous posts, so that the stuff
you aren't discussing is deleted.
well, it is very simple as to why my posts are on top. that is the way they
show up. and i did not set it up that way, email system set it up that way.
and i ain't gonna change it, cause if they say this way is rite who am i to
argue with them??
You are referring to MSRP, I'm referring to the actual current sale prices
of 2006 models on the east cost. The CV and the GM are the same vehicle.
The GM is more upscale than the top of the line CV but sells for less.
but they dont look as sharp as a crown vic! :)
I just bought a used 03 crown vic, love it.
I wanted a Lincoln LS, but couldn't find one without 200,000 KMS On
They are a beautiful car... i wish i could buy one new because the wife
would actually drive it (crown vics are too large for her)
Actually that is not true, while the Interceptor is the darling of police
departments, more CVs have been sold to private buyers than as police cars
and taxies. Look at the VINs, there are a lot more P73s and P74s running
around than P71s and P72s
I will have to take your word for it. Up here in the northeast
(Pittsburgh for me) no one drives Crown Vics except as police cruisers
and taxis. Not that many Grand Marquis either. Opps, I did have a friend
who recently traded her Crown Vic for a used Caddy DeVille- she wanted
front wheel drive. The car had less space in the back seat than my 97
Chrysler Concorde. The Crown Vic did have a HUGE trunk. The car drove
and rode like the 1970s boat that it was.

There are four CV models available in 2007, only two of which are police and
taxi fleet models. Dealers don't seem to stock them, however. Particularly
the more common FLM dealers. They only made the Marauder for two years, for
some reason it didn't sell well. Probably because it was only available in
two colors One of my neighbors has one of the vary rare red color
Marauders, that he says he is going to keep as a future collector car.
