01/31/16 07:22 PM POTM - February 2016 - Peachpicker's 2001 Sport! by Chaplian

POTM February 2016 is Peachpicker's sweet Sport!

Peachpicker's 2001 Crown Victoria Sport

2001 Crown Victoria LX Sport (technically Sport Appearance Package for '01).
Family owned since new. Originally scheduled for build 4/19/01, actually produced 5/31/01 (42 days late). Purchased 9/26/01 and been part of the family ever since.
Color: Toreador Red (paint code FL and the only year you could get a Sport in that color).
Interior: Medium Parchment Bucket Seats (interior Code TH).
Currently at 48,XXX miles and totally stock (and staying that way at least as long as I own it)
According to my Marti Report, this was 1 of 54 Sports that were produced in Toreador Red with Medium Parchment Interior. Everything is original to the car with the exception of normal maintenance items which have been replaced over the years. I have retained many of the original maintenance items that were replaced over the years such as serpentine belt, air filter, spark plugs, and wiper blades.
Additional factory options include:
Front and Rear carpeted floor mats, Premium sound system (AM/FM/Cassette w/trunk mounted 6-disc CD Changer, power adjustable pedals, anti-lock brakes, LX Comfort Plus Group (which includes power passenger seat and electronic instrumentation). It is my intent to keep this as original as possible. OEM splash guards installed by the dealer per our request prior to taking delivery. Good Luck to everyone and enjoy the pics.

This next picture actually indicates a "dead" area where the shift indicator would have been if this was a column mounted shift car. This has been a subject of controversy with a few folks who do not believe this is an actual Sport due to this issue. I know for a fact since I've had this from new that this is how the car was delivered to the dealer. It could have something to do with the mid-year introduction and Ford wanting to get these out the door.

12/08/15 03:38 PM A bigger change by SteveS

Years ago, when I took over CVN, I had no idea what it would become. I had a lot to learn about the hardware and software involved. I learned quickly that the site was growing rapidly, to the point that it outgrew the forum software, and outgrew the server. CVN actually outgrew several servers over the years, and costs usually progressed as well.

I met some great people over the years through the forum, and a lot of long term friendships developed. Of course, in the cyber reality, I never actually met a lot of those people, but others I did, through local meets, not so local meets, and STAP. CVN has been a very important part of my life. Some of you may remember some of the health challenges that I have faced. I actually got a lot of very important medical advice about courses of treatment from a couple of members.

Anyone who has been around for a while is aware that I was disabled for a few years, and unable to work. CVN kept my mind active as I learned some of the technical aspects of running the forum, and kept me socially active and interacting with people, either online or in person.

When I was able to go back to work, it was difficult to maintain focus on CVN while I was struggling to rejoin the workforce, and, in fact, CVN took a back seat to that. As my workload increased, and with some new stuff going on on the outside, I had to step back for a while, and CVN suffered.

The big crash last spring brought me back into the fold. It took a lot of doing to get the site running again, because of the amount of damage caused by our former hosting company, and their lack of cooperation. With the help of one of the UBB.Threads developers, CVN got up and running again on a new server, and came back to life.

One thing I recognized was that CVN was going to require more attention to sustain. I was enjoying it again, but it can be a bit overwhelming at times. Then, toward the end of summer, my boss decided to dump a lot more responsibility on me, which really put things over the top.

Over the past few years, several companies have approached me about acquiring CVN to add to their portfolios. These are companies that do nothing but run forums. They have professional people that do that for a living. I really never considered it, until very recently.

I listened to what they had to say, and what their intentions and goals were. I visited their forums, (I was already a member of some of them) to see what they “felt” like. I quickly realized that it wouldn’t be a bad thing for CVN to have some professional help. These would be people who have the time and resources to devote to making some needed improvements.

In particular, I liked what Autoguide.com was doing (or not doing) with their forums, and took the next step with them to see what we could work out. As a result of our combined efforts, CVN has been running on one of Autoguide’s servers for about two weeks, and it is time for me to let go of the steering wheel. I won’t be going away completely, and I plan to maintain at least part of my current role.

You have no idea how difficult this decision has been, but I think it is in the best interest of CVN as a whole. Please join me in welcoming some new people to the management team.

2004 DTR Marauder, almost 61,000 miles, and it used to belong to UncleLar of CVN and mm.net. The mods are 4.10's, Mosler diff cover, second cats removed, K and N CAI, Lideo tune, stainless rear bumper inserts. It's now parked for the year, so no new pictures.
