Wheels Make All the Difference

Digging through some older photos and ran across the ad for my Crown Vic before I bought it:

It’s a 2004 civilian model with the full digital dash, leather, etc. Supposedly driven by a grandma prior to me picking it up. Somewhere along the line it picked up window tint and a honeycomb grill. I drove it like that for about six months before I found the right wheels on Craigslist. Now it looks like this:

Improvement, eh? I love the way these cars look with Mustang wheels on them. It’s been a solid daily driver/long hauler for me for the past two years and 30,000 miles.

Why did I buy a Crown Vic? Price was a huge factor. These cars are cheap. Secondly, I’m 6'4" so I like to have a full size car. I also liked the idea of a V8, rear drive car. Not to mention that this one has been quite reliable and stupid easy to fix when something does go wrong.
