Fordy...

Vic is the car in your future. Lebarons are chick cars as mentioned. They also have the typical dreaded Dodge issues that will nickle and dime you to death. I've driven a buddy'* Chyrsler/Dodge cars.. all junk IMO.

Push the Ford before you sink money into a pit called Chyrlser.

Ford will last alot longer. Cons would be very poor gas mileage and not much speed. Dont assume 5.0 means mustang GT 5.0 power.

Anyway choice is your but I would get the Ford

police pkg or not, it'll still outlast the Lebaron.

You rode in it? Aren't you supposed to drive it?

Buy it and update your siggy.

Or else....

yeah... he was concerned about his insurance not covering me.


it is making a funny noise though. sounds like a knocking, but is too fast to be in the engine. couldnt figure out what it was, but it sounds like it might be in the drivebelt train.
