1986 Mercury Grand Marquis (5.0l V8) — This car is almost absent from North American roads today. It is very prone to rusting and this will greatly limit the car's lifespan. This car is easy to drive when the power-steering fluid isn't leaking. The engine is non-responsive under 20km/h. At 20km/h the car starts being more agile and shows generous torque. The seats are comfy but lack lateral support. The electrics aren't reliable: window controls, cruise control etc. Funny fact: this car has room for two spare tires in the back. One is hidden in the car body on the left side.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Built like a tank; Infinite interior space; Reliable engine; Comfort

Cons: Parking is never easy; fuel consumption astronomical; rust-happy; electrics bound to failure

Mercury Grand Marquis — This car was a tank!! I loved this car. My mom and dad had this car before I did. My sisters drove it as a school car, and kinda tore it up. It rode like a dream, and it was the most beautiful dark blue color. It was a gorgeous car in it's time. Unfortunately, the transmission went out, and it cost more to fix it than it was worth, so I junked it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Rode like a dream

Cons: Terrible gas mileage

The Grand Ol' Grand Marquis — A beautiful car. Had over 300,000 miles on it before it was destroyed in a car accident. It held up well in an accident VS a large van. It was souped up with all the options and gadgets. I LOVED this car!

Pros: Beautiful car.  Very well built.  

Cons: Rear wheel drive is not so good in the winter.

Mercury Grand Marguis 1986 — Daniel doesn't like that we put Cobra emblems on the Mercury. He thinks it is blasphemy. Oh well! Performance? Dude, you should see what this baby can do! It has plush seating and it is like driving a Lazy Boy.

Pros: nice and smooth ride

Cons: it is really big
