The newer versions of those cars are pretty much all FWD v-6's. The RWD ones? Talk about a land yacht! Too big in my opinion. Another big plus on the Ford side, the Panther platform includes the Crown Victoria, The Mercury Grand Marquis and Marauder, and the Lincoln Town Car, and is(as far as I know) the only full frame modern passenger car. This is way more stable than partial frame/unibody construction. There is no comparison, to me that is. I think the Ford P71 beats the Caprice/Impala hands-down.
Yeah Id much rather have a p71 so thats probably what i'll end up with the summer time... gut it and make it strictly racing lol

Re: Why I like the Ford CVPI

A big racing school somewhere out west converts them to manuals and teaches drifting in them!

Re: Why I like the Ford CVPI

More than likely, if I buy a CVPI, my future rims are on this page somewhere:
http://www.tswalloywheels.com/app_gu...Crown+Victoria

There are maybe only 3 rims on this page I wouldn't like... and one of them is only because I couldn't view the pic...

Sorry but the LSx platform was not out yet. The late 90s Caprices and Imps were LT1 & LT4 motors Conversions are out there though. And the LT4 is not just in the Impala; they are in the Caprices as well. (And yes, the LTs are Vette motors!)

Yeah, thanks for that info. I can never keep up with the "L" designations! lol


I am working on an idea for this CVPI if I end up getting it. I think you guys will love the theme...
