POTM December 2020 - WSTRLNG's 2006 Town Car Limo

77K miles on it and rides like a couch on a cloud.

Looks completely FACTORY (except for the 2 extra doors LOL)

Bought it sight-unseen. Was an airport limo in the L.A. area until it went to auciton and ended up in northern CA.

I am guessing that the dealer dumped it because the Limo company failed to list it as INOP and it accrued registration fees that the next buyer would be responsible for.

I think the dealer in Oregon figured nobody would know about the DMV fees as it's being sold in Oregon. Funny how it ended up back in California after all.

I managed to ARGUE my way with DMV to see that the car had not been driven for a year and that it was in a dealers possesion. They removed the previous year's registration fees.


It was picked up in Medford, OR by a dealer. He had hoped for a quick sale at $9,995. He did maintenance, new tires and re-charged the A/C. THEN COVID-19 hit and he had ZERO lookers on the car.

I found it on Facebook Marketplace for just under $6K and it sat in my mind for over a week. I HAD TO GET IT... But HOW?

After I contacted the dealer and him realizing I had been in the car business, he told me he had just listed it on Craigslist for $5,750 and was cutting his losses.

I asked him to hold it but he wouldn't until I showed him proof I was buying it. I bought a ONE-WAY ticket on Alaska Airlines to Medford, OR and sent him the confirmation. BAM!

I got off work around 10pm on a Tues. I drove to the San Jose airport and TRIED to rest, but couldn't. 7am, I was in the air. I landed in Medford (after a stop in Portland) at 10:15 am and was picked up by the dealer in the limo.

I looked over the car and paid CASH.

I drove straight back and by 7 pm the SAME DAY, I was back in Salinas, CA and a day later, got a ride to San Jose to get the Crown Victoria back home.

2011 Ford Crown Victoria P7B/CVPI. First Ford product I've ever owned. Always wanted one of these. Bought this to be a daily but as you can see it became a project/toy pretty quick. This car started it's working life as a campus police vehicle at Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, MA. It is a SAP (street appearance package) car with carpet, cloth seats front and rear, full front split-bench, cruise control, all the bells and whistles. It did not have any external body-mounted lights (thankfully) and did not have a searchlight(s). It seems to have lived a fairly laid back life for one of these cars. It had 819 idle hours when I bought it and there's no way it could have been driven in the winter on a regular basis up here or the frame/body would NOT be this clean. I absolutely love this thing and have no intentions of ever getting rid of it. Even my fiance likes it (phew!) so it's definitely here to stay!

Mods so far:

-Sonnax 76833E O/D Servo Pin
-PML AOD-E/4R75E aluminum deep capacity transmission pan
-Motorcraft external in-line transmission filter
-3.55 Trac-Lock rear axle swap (originally 3.27 Trac-Lock)
-DANA-Spicer differential cover
-aFe cold air intake (for noise purposes, of course)
-Moog CC80551/CC501 front and rear lowering spring mod
-ADDCO rear sway bar
-Mo's 87 Performance Tune
-RKE enabled via FORScan
-Spyder head and cornering lights
-PROMotoring LED taillights with a 4-bulb conversion I installed
-LED switchback front turn signals
-Standard CVPI reverse light panel (gotta have that black trim, ya know)
-Black chrome grille (this may or may not be staying)
