I traded my beloved Crown Vic today. Not a thing wrong with it, but we don't need three cars, and after 7+ years of faithful service, it's time for a new owner. I'm gonna miss it.
However, I DID replace it with this:
Not a fan of silver, but I d like a good deal.
Dual exhaust = twin turbo
A 2010 Ford Flex SEL EcoBoost. For an SEL, it's got the full load of options, leather interior, etc. I HATE the color, but I'll take care of that soon. (I'm thinking about dark gray wood-textured vinyl for the sides.)
The deal was way to good to pass up and I'll have a bumper to bumper warranty for 5 years or until the odo hits 80,000 miles. Since it's got 26,000 on it now and I might drive 500 miles a month, I'll be covered a good long while.
I can't wait to get it (it's getting detailed and checked out by the dealer -- they only had it two days) and stomp on the loud pedal, unleashing all 355 of those ponies.
Here is a rough Photoshop of what a dark gray woodgrain would look like:
It might not be everyone's cup of tea (nor is the Flex) but you have to admit it will be unique!
