A 5000LB ROAD KING!
I bought this car from the original owner in Jan '08, it had 143000KM on it and been in a slight shmuck-em-up.
Paid $300 for the car, and it cost another $400 to get her on the road, and has been better than my '92 Grand Marquis has ever been! I still don't know if its TBI or Carb, but it is a 302cui (someone help!).
Has a velour interior with everything power working except the radio antenna (stuck up). Even the air blows cold! Factory aluminum rims and half vinyl roof. Cruise, auto-climate control, tilt wheel, auto headlamp dimmer and I could go on forever with the features!
Fuel economy is by no means the best, but hey I paid $700 all together for the car, so that's a lot more money in my pocket to pay for fuel (as apposed to paying $30k for a new car)!
Overall it handles and accelerates like a heavy car, but will smoke little Honda's!mJust a beautiful car to drive! Always get a Thumbs Up or Nice Car from complete strangers.
Clearcoat is impeccable and very shiny still, and has been Wax-All'ed and Oil Undercoated for its entire life! LOVE MY YACHT! LOL.
PS If anyone can help me figure out if it's TBI or Carb let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The '84 Town Car didn't weigh anywhere near 5,000 lbs. A loaded model weighed just over 4,000. These cars often weighed somewhat more than 5,000 lbs before they were down-sized in 1979 but not after they shed over a foot of length and a couple inches of width for 1980.
