Ford Crown Victoria Lx Sport on 2040-cars
Massapequa, New York, United States
This car is in EXCELLENT condition. I purchased the car approximately a year ago from the original owner and have not really driven as much as I would have liked. I have a car issued to me for work and have three others of my own that I also drive sparingly. But the time has come to sell this car and let someone else take it and drive it as it deserves to be driven. I got the car with around 31K miles and it now has only 35K+ miles...As much as it pains me to sell it, pains me more to have it and not drive it more often.
Take a look at the photos and you must agree the car is AWESOME. These Crown Victoria LX Sports came with a monochromatic paint scheme where the tail light trim and grill are the same color as the car. You will note the grill on this car is black with the honeycomb mesh which came from a Police Interceptor and was swapped out by me as I liked the look of the black matching the sideview mirrors. I do have the original Midnight Grey painted grill and that of course comes with the car.
This car was VERY heavily optioned when bought new and has some rare options like laminated side glass, heated sideview mirrors and six disc changer mounted in the trunk. The laminated glass is a very rare feature and seems to make the ride even more quiet than a Crown Victoria with regular tempered side glass.
This is an LX Sport model so it came from the factory with leather buckets and console, real dual exhaust with H pipe, 3.27 rear, and the handling package which included rear air springs and sway bar. When I bought the car it needed rear shocks so I had them upgraded to Police Interceptor gas shocks. The ride is firm and car responds very well. I have driven "Standard" Crown Victorias, Police Interceptors, LX's and this LX Sport and this car rates just below and Interceptor as far as stiffness of the ride and a much bigger improvemet over Standard and regular LX models. The airsprings are rated just below the stiffness of Interceptor rear springs. Given the heavy loads typically carried by Interceptors the rating of those springs was designed to compensate; with an empty trunk, Interceptors tend to ride high in the rear. This car on the other hand actually has a lower stanch yet since the airsprings are designed to keep the car level even with heavy loads in the trunk. The suspension is tight yet level. Simply put, the car handles great yet at the same time does not sit high in the rear and can handle heavy loads...Its the best of all worlds.
I am also including two BRAND NEW 17 inch Ford aluminum wheels pictured here as well. Please send any questions or concerns you have and I will be sure to answer them timely.

Earlier this month, rumors started to swirl 'round the web about the next-generation Ford SVT Mustang - the halo version of the all-new 2015 'Stang seen testing in the gallery above. Originally, we heard that the Shelby GT500 moniker would be dumped in favor of "a name you're familiar with," which some sources guessed could mean a return of the Cobra nameplate.
That might not be correct. According to Road & Track, citing a report from Mustangs Daily, the new range-topping Mustang will bring back the Shelby GT350 name - currently used on an aftermarket version of Ford's Pony produced by Shelby American (take a look at our recent Quick Spin of that car). Expect the new GT350 to be quite a bit different than the current GT500 - it will be all motor, using a V8 that's derived from the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter Coyote engine (though it will no doubt have a higher displacement). The GT350 will be a lot more powerful than the next Mustang GT, which is expected to offer something like 450 horsepower, but won't be quite as absurd as the 662-horsepower GT500 we currently enjoy.
The Shelby GT350 will reportedly bow with the rest of the new Mustang range at the 2014 New York Auto Show, which coincides exactly with the original Mustang's debut at the New York World's Fair in 1964. If that seems far out, don't worry, we'll be seeing the rest of the 2015 Mustang range before then, but Road & Track reports that the 2014 Detroit Auto Show stage will be reserved for the reveal of the next Ford F-150 pickup.
When is a stock, 167-horsepower Mazda MX-5 Miata quicker than a Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, Lamborghini Gallardo, Lotus Elise and a Porsche 911? When it's raining. Sort of.
Mazda Canada arranged a unique drag race to show off the fact that the Miata's optional power retractable folding hardtop can go from top-down to top-up in just 12 seconds flat. In this video, all six cars line up for a drag race, and it starts to rain (well, sort of - but you'll have to watch the video all the way to the end to see what we mean). The green flag is waved, and the timer starts as soon as the convertibles begin to put their tops up. But because the Miata's roof mechanism gets the car's roof back up a full 5.1 seconds quicker than the second-place car, the Mazda gets a serious advantage off the line for the actual drag race.
It's a fun video. And while we've spoiled the results (come on, the video was uploaded by Mazda, you knew the Miata was going to win), be sure to see how it all unfolds, below.
Hemmings came across an interesting article from the Throwin' Wrenches blog about the intersection of ice cream, cars and civic duty in America's late 1950s. In particular, it focuses on the Mister Softee trucks, which criss-crossed neighborhoods of the eastern US serving ice cream. Looking past the ultra-durable vehicles used - heavy-duty Ford-based chassis, for what it's worth - the article delves into some deeper national-security territory.
See, Mister Softee truck owners were voluntary members of the Civil Defense, thanks to all the useful stuff (potable water, generators, freezers and fridges) that the machines carried with them for serving ice cream. Click over to Throwin' Wrenches for the full run down of how Mister Softee would have stepped in to help fight if the Cold War ever turned a little hotter.
