....from daily driver duty ;)

Brought home a 2005 Five Hundred Limited. It has 36,000 on it and every option Ford offered except for AWD for $15,900. I'll get some pictures up tomorrow when it's light out.

2005 with 36,000 on it? kind of high?
It's a bunch but the last 8 years I rolled 30,000 a year on my bird. Car's with lower mileage were $21,000

2005 with 36,000, sounds a little high at first, but in the long run... They are nearly all highway mileage, even with a build date of 10/04 it would only be 18k a year. One would think that it would have to be mostly highway, which is nice. Not as much wear as 12k a year stop and go.

Timb, 18" rubber isnt TOO bad... I run 255-45-18's on my 'Bird, $125 a tire and they hold up pretty well. What are your plans for the Birdie? Wanna sell me your intake?:D

I was considering selling her but I decided to keep it as a project car and try some more radical modifications.

August. My employer opened another office up here as a hurricane backup and asked me to run it.

305,000 miles - awesome Tim.

Wished I had kept mine till I broke the 300k mark.

What was still original on yours?

Very nice car. Very well appointed, and I am guessing that it is an SEL model?
Nope it's a Limited
