jmjustin6 Posted May 17, 2019 Report Share Posted May 17, 2019 So sadly my truck died. It's an 88 so it was bound to happen eventually. it's overheating and missfiring like crazy and I put a bunch of parts(about 10 or so new parts) in it and nothing seem to be doing the trick. Mechanic just couldnt seem to figure out what was causing these problems and I was tired of throwing money at it. Anyway so I needed a new car. I just didnt know what car was the right one for me. I seemed to have my heart set on either a Prius or a leaf (Rick was alot of help on the leaf research) but ultimately I just know that when the time cane to change the leaf battery I just wouldnt be able to afford it. With the Prius I just couldnt find a good enough deal for me to jump on it. So a guy at work told me he saw a crown vic for sale on craigslist a few days ago and said that it was a great deal. So I looked it up and I was shocked at how good it looked and was sure it had to be gone by now. So i messaged the guy and sure enough he still had it and I cane to look at it and I bought it. 2004 crown Victoria 1 owner and only 44,000 miles on it. Sweet old man owned the car and used it only to drive his mom around. Sadly there has seemed to have been a bit of taking advantage of a nice man because there has been $18,000 worth of work done to this thing. Alot of small stuff like for example whenever he went in to get his oil change (every 4,000 miles) he also had an alignment, wheel rotation, and wheel balance done. With all that said I am very happy to have this beautiful car and dont know what i did to deserve this. I am going to take good care of it and hopefully it will last a good while. Sorry for a long one here but I am very excited about this one RickR, StormSurge and nosweargamer 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
