Default My 92 Grand Marquis

Shame on GM for discontinuing their RWD BOF. I originally got the Marquis because I liked the styling better, and quality seemed a little better than the Roadmaster. Of course, that'* the only Ford that'* got such quality. I've got 340,000 km with the original heater core, rad, alternator, water pump, etc etc. Yeah, I have replaced some door lock actuators, and I've gone through 2 wiper motors. However, I don't think other Ford products come near the quality of the Marquis or other GM products.

Comparing the Marquis with the Lesabre, I actually prefer the Marquis. The interior of the Lesabre feels really cheap. That said, it'* easier to service than the Marquis with the exception of the tranny and the ACC belt (shame on GM!)
