1986 Ford Crown Victoria 1986


This is my track / drift / tow vehicle. Back in the summer of 2001 at the age of 17, my father passed this car on to me. When I got it, it had a crate 95 Mustang GT 5.0L HO motor swapped into it and full police suspension. After 7 years it’s now the beast of my own creation. One of the coolest facts about this car is that since 1991, my Father and I are the only ones to wrench on this car. I used to participate in HPDE events with this car, but at the moment is now the tow vehicle. But I still participate in drift events to keep the old girl happy.

This really is one of my favorite cars here. The only thing that could make it ANY sweeter is a wagon body with faded wood grain.

A Crown Vic with with an H.O. and a T5? That's GOLD, baby. Oh no, wait, it's actually beige. ;) Keep drifting it, 'cause that's fantastic.

Old post, don't know if this car's still around, but I love it. I had a first-year panther, an LTD landau. Same body, in blue, 302/C4. Built a nice engine with ported E7 heads and some nice parts, wide ratio gears in the C4. Drove it for 14 years until a stop sign runner took it out. Always planned on a t5 swap, so it's really nice to see it here.
