Default So wrong of me

Is it wrong of me to want to buy a Mercury Marauder
I just can't get away from how those bad lads look and not to mention the engine in them.
I found this one like 5 min ago and I just wish i could buy it!

Voltmeter i'm sure.

Saw one today, they're pretty bad-***. Lots of mod-motor parts for them too. They kinda suffered from being a little overpriced IMO. In the end it'* just a crown vic with a nicer engine, and some cool wheels/exhaust tips.

$20k is a lot though IMO. You can get into a Charger/300 for a little more then that with a v6, with a warranty and no cop car looks.

For that price you can get a GTO

Still would rock one though, just wouldn't pay that much for it

I have always liked those. Would definitely drive one, even though it is a Ford.

Not my cup of tea at all. Poor man'* mid-life crisis car.

BTW, it seems that you have to have a mullet and a knack for being an a-hole driver if you own one.

At least, that'* been my experiences around them.
