All prestigious cars over $40,000 Euros. Every day cars like the crown vic arent to be categoriezed with Lambo, lotus and ferrari. Everyday euro cars are Citroen, renault, Vauxhall, VW, Rover, etc. most which over diesels in various forms. Not RWD super cars wtih 300 +HP

valid point but I still wouldnt categorize the Crown vic in the same boat as the 3 series cause the Vic would be in the same water as a 30 ft yacht

Always thought an old squad car would be a good used car to have.
I just never wanted to be seen as "One of those guys" that drives an old squad car though.

i guess i'm weird. im 6ft tall, and i guess i have long legs because to me; i couldn't fit in the bad of the fiesta, the focus i barely fit, and the fusion and taurus are kinda tight but do-able.

no offense to the fusion, its a great looking car and with the 3.5 V6 (which you have i believe) its a monster on the road too , but Its proven that most rear wheel drive cars are more reliable then front wheel drive cars (same thing as vans, say the dodge caravan vs the dodge ram van) I'd take the crown vic before the fusion for its RWD config and 4.6L engine (which is close to the same output of your 3.5L ) but id mod the shit out of the crown vic, Bucket seats, Mustang 4.6L with a manual tranny, Dual exhaust, push bar, black rims Drooooooooooooool!
