Out of all the cars I have ever owned I would say my 98 Vicky is the best and most reliable. I now have 140,000 miles on it and she is still running strong. A few years ago I changed it from a single exhaust to duals, and I changed the shocks and springs from the standard to the severe duty police shocks and springs, so the beast handles better on the roads and around corners. Also the dual exhaust adds a few extra horses giving it more power. It's a shame that Ford is discontinuing the CV's at the end of 2011. I wish they would reconsider and keep making them.
Body on frame, V8 engine, rear wheel drive. Cheap and easy car to drive and maintain.
I wish Ford would not discontinue them in 2011. They should redesign them, and improve the fuel economy. Keep the CV a rear drive, body on frame, but just freshen up the body and interior.
