Don't know about you, but my Vic gets the same or better mileage than my cougar. Made very high 20's/low 30's on the way down from Illinois to Florida.go for it, the gas mileage kinda sux but you cant beat the comfort that four doors provide, v8 and rwd, its all the good stuff, our marquis is an 04,
Good luck with that. I haven't been to any municipality auctions, but anymore (unless it's a well funded State fleet that swaps out cars more frequently) a lot of departments are running their Vics right into the ground since the budgets aren't really there to replace them. I'd be very leary of a CVPI unless I was buying from a reseller like copcarsonline or Government Fleet Sales. If you think about the use that a police car will see in its lifetime, you look to inherit some issues. Idling for long stretches of time, possibility of a hacked up harness for the extra electrical gear that they have to carry, fubared interiors, holes from the lightbars/antennas, wear and tear from PIT maneuvers, almost Baja 1000 type driving sometimes, high speed chases and code runs. Unless they have very good maintenance practices (and I know of some departments that appeared to now know what maintenance was). Also, a lot of taxi companies will pay high dollar for the CVPI's a lot of the time as well. If you do go to a CVPI, look over if very carefully and know what to look for. If you can, try to find a Cheif, Admin, or detectives car. Take home cars seem to have better care taken of them too.look at the local auto auctions for a used P71 patrol car you can find them for under 1000
Ditto. I'm at 6 or lower, and it's my first auto loan (mother had to co-sign though since I was a student and , hence, "unemployed" . . . never mind the offer letter in my pocket). 10.9 is insane.10.9???? Damn I got a loan for 6%, even my first one was only at 8%
My aunt cosigned my first one at 8% This one for the altima for 6% I didnt need a cosigner:tongue: Carmax is much like JDByrider, but JD charges like 17-20% interest and tries to take every dollar you have (I know, I used to work for them) With Carmax and JD, they replace everything that looks bad or has gone bad on the car, so thats a little piece of mind for ya JD has a 2 year warranty that covers about everything, dunno about carmax's warranty.Ditto.

i think it has to do with him being like 6 foot 12 and not exactly on the light side....i remember when he had his 89 TBird and gave it a few runs at a track...dropped it down a few tenths by having a skinny friend drive it.....'member that? hehe...and since he's got a wife and young kid now, he's probably hauling lots of family type stuff in the trunkDon't know about you, but my Vic gets the same or better mileage than my cougar.
