2002 Ford Crown Victoria LX 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
This car is old fashioned boat anchor technology but it cranks and goes reliably every time. Fuel mileage is respectable for the size and weight of the vehicle 18-20 city/suburban 22-27 highway. They don't build them like this anymore and for that we should be both sad and grateful. Sad because it is a very reliable car and great on long distance road trips. Grateful because this car is navigated more than driven and is a festival of squeaks and rattles. Resale value tanks early so if you buy one plan to drive the wheels off it.

Update chassis components, restyle, and make it roomier. Oh wait I just described the new Taurus. They've quit making Vics can GM be far behind at $4 a gallon gas?
