A Modern "Bluesmobile".

2002 Ford Crown Victoria 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
The P71 Crown Vic is a really cool car. If you like big and roomy, you'll love the former cop car Crown Vic. If you like good performance, you'll enjoy it too. Great acceleration with the 4.6L GT V8. Nice anti-lock brakes without a severe bucking bronco effect. Nice tight steering makes it quite maneuverable for a big car in city traffic but use two hands on the freeway at full speed. While not a race car, it does offer plenty of get up and go. It's no wonder cabbies like these birds! The main drawback is fuel consumption. I get about 15mpg (combined), so what you get is a car that is like the Concorde (the aircraft): Big, fast, and burns gas like one!
Nice interior and great performance. Fun to drive as it is nicely maneuverable.
A better stereo would be nice. Better A/C would be good too, especially if you live in a hot climate. Fuel economy could use improvement but that'll be difficult.
