I recently picked up 5 more P71s for business use and have decided to utilize this 09 Metallic Grey Supervisor/Detective car as my personal unit.

121K, front and rear cloth seats, cop installed window tint, carpet, LSD, Clean unit from Las Vegas so zero rust.

I got it tagged today but have had starting issues so I ran a test and the 850 CCA battery was showing 560 CCA, off to Advance Auto for a new one.

Then I took it to my exhaust guy for a couple of Flowmasters.

I have ordered a stereo, speakers, console and picked up some wheels. I am also going to do a suspension drop and install some Konis I already have.

More user friendly bolt ons coming.

That is an outstanding idea..

Before anyone asks, I still have the Elantra, but after 4 years and 210k trouble free miles, I am just bored with the FWD.

LED headlights and 18" Lorinsers with Blizzaks for the Non-Winter we are having. Also added an aftermarket console and I have a decent sound system to install.

You have me tempted to go to the next auction and pick one of these up. For me, it's just across town, and not 3/4 of the way across the country. Didn't you say you paid under $2500 ea?

Very cool, although I have this weird infatuation with steel wheels on these cars. Looks great though!

$2400 which included the shipping for 5 cars from Vegas to Ohio, without the shipping they averaged $1900 each

I'm mostly curious what someone would do with that many P71s
Especially since '5 more' indicates there are others

We use them for my transportation business, this one I tagged for me due to; the carpet, the lack of holes in the roof, LSD, no A pillar cut outs and a few other items.

That it drives like a new car doesn't hurt

Because they are great. Widened 17's are damn sexy. I have 3, waiting on a 4th to have them widened. I have snows on the 16's now, hope by next winter to have 17 snows.

Ha, mine still has Vegas dirt on it. I do really like that color.

I am seriously considering a manual swap for the Vic. It needs a name now, being a Sin City car makes for interesting choices.

Nancy, yeah the link is too easy. This one is Nancy.

In reply to grafmiata: That would fit a car that gets shared around often, I have one in mind.

So I have a 3650 out of a 08GT with the pedals, fly, and clutch..... This plus a P71 has crossed my mind. Though, I have an E46 now. So I may not have too much attachment now.

Upcoming auction is SO tempting, but how the heck do you pick one (of the many that all look the same that are available) to bid on ?!?!

That 3650 should be hydraulic clutch... Not great for the Vics. Cable clutch much easier and more sorted. IMHO.

Thanks Ross

How's the throttle response in the '05 and up drive-by-wire Panthers?

The wife's Outback is dbw and there's a maddening lag. I've been looking at newer Panthers again.
