1989 Ford Crown Victoria LX 302 (5.0) Windsor from North America
Luxury and comfort, 80's style
Oil leaks from rear main seal, landau top was cracked when I got it, dashboard cover is cracked.
My great grandfather bought the car in 1988 brand new. My grandad drove it, my dad drove it, and now I am driving it. Going to this tank of a car from my 1991 F-150 was definitely an experience, but I sure am glad I did. Electric seats and windows, automatic headlamps, all pluses. 0-60 timing was a lousy 15 seconds, but then again, you have to remember, these cars weren't built for performance. Cruising along at 70 mph, you barely feel a thing unless it's real windy out.
It's to the point where I'm pretty much collecting the model, getting ones for parts, and then getting ones to restore. Overall, it's just an amazing car, even if I hated the body style at first. It grows on you. If you can get one, GET IT. You won't be disappointed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

How could the car have been driven by great/grand/dad yet still have 0 miles on it when you got it 18 years later?
The odometer has probably long since crapped out, just like almost every other Panther based model from that era...

Maybe because the car was bought new, and had 0 miles when the very first family member made the purchase.
