My favorite kind of car is: 1. American 2. Rear Wheel Drive w/ Longitudinal Engine Mounting 3. Full Framed/Body on Frame 4. V8/ or Diesel
I love the feel of riding in full-framed vehicles especially the rigidity and the lower noise compared to a unibody. I adore RWD and all the characteristics that come with it (in a snowy state). I love the sound of American V8s and turbo I-6 Diesels.
My preferences led me to purchase a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria P71 from the Forest Lake, MN Police Dept. At the time of my purchase the car had 85,000 miles on it; now it has 92,500 on the odometer. I will be rebuilding the suspension over the coming months and I plan on doing some engine work to get my compression ratio to 13:1 so I can run more efficiently on E85. This car is mainly used for commuting between North Dakota and Minnesota and cruising the streets of Grand Forks. The 4.6L V8 has enough power for anything I've been able to throw at it. The fastest I've gotten up to in this thing is 121 mph and it was as smooth as butter.
