    I agree with Bob, that was fun. ;)

    The '80's were full of this kind of driving, at least around here.
    Of all the paths you take in life - make sure a few of them are dirt.

      That thing has more jiggle than Kristie Alley seeing an all-you-can-eat-dessert-buffet.

        Somewhere I have a VHS tape of when my Fox Marquis LTS 5.0 was featured on a Canadian program called Motoring 1990, which is still going now as Motoring 2010. They were doing a feature on the regional championship autocross scene in Ontario, and were intrigued by the 4-door saloon negotiating the cones. Also had mine out on the road course at Shannonville a few times for lapping days when my Mustang was down, that was good for a hoot too.

              84 ltd was grandpas last car, always bought brand new. It felt like a 1000 pound unibody with springs too soft.

              A 1985 subaru was heavier...

              I assumed to see v8s coming hacked in. but never saw a single hot rod. The front A pillars were left undesered to, these cars headed for fail from day one. Of course not much 80s didn't. I associated it with the diplomat that bent its own front end. :

                I love my 84 LTD and it's a wagon to boot. Of course it's also packing a 351 with a stick. ;D

                    I had one of those in shit brown ,bought it for 400 bucks ,had the V6 and auto ,nice car inside. As soon as I bought it I took it to my buddies house and his wife had to have it, he traded me his 77 Nova beater with a warmed over 350. His first trip out of state in it he blowed it up. I later sold the Nova for 1000 bucks to a neighbor.
                    Always wanted to do one up in a cop car theme , we had plenty of those around back then.

                          Bob used to have a fleet of those he used for drivers in his driving school and yes they were built on the same fox platform
                          that the mustang used so all the bolt on goodies worked ===made for some cool sleepers in the day

                            My buddy Scott has one, it's a pretty awesome car. Just a 4 door fox body, all the Mustang goodies bolt right up.
