My new set of wheels
by LionkingCMSL on DeviantArt

Some of you know that back in May I lost my truck to repossession.

I have been without a vehicle since then. Last Friday I called a friend and asked if he had a spare vehicle he would let go cheap (< $250). He said his wife and he were thinking of selling his daily drive, a 2001 Mercury Gran Marquis GS with 255,000 miles. I have ridden in the car, I know that the maintenance was kept up on it, so I asked, "How much?" I almost needed the medics when he said five dollars. :=3

The body is not perfect, but for a 15 year old car with 255,000 miles on it, it is in pretty good shape.

I have the title and the car and tomorrow I will get it fully legal so I can drive it.

So the lion has a new set of wheels, that no-one can take from him.

Fantastic. :-)

I have owned the Ford version of that car and have found them to be reliable. Bonus points for the two body trunk and a back seat that can comfortably seat 3 adults.
