I cancelled my S4 order for a Grand Marquis, and I'm oddly contented with life since. So I understand going from Miata to CV.
Good luck and let us know how it runs after tuning and tinkering.
Nice pickup, btw. I likes me some survivors.

I actually have a breakout box, and a SBDS at my house.... but it looks like you're in Cali.
Sweet! I was waiting for my slow comp to load the page and was hoping that it would have velour interior rather than the crap leather ford used at the time. And lo and behold . I'll always remember and like the way ford velour smells ever since my grandparent's old '83 marquis(not grand).
I'm a bit jealous. If i didn't need a fuel efficient daily due to driving tons, i would have probably "gone period" and have bought an '86 town car or cougar or somesuch when my pos sentra pooped out.
And of note, 2 weeks or so ago i actually saw 2 of these crown vics driving in a row(one following the other). Maybe not a huge coincidence, but i don't see these driving all too often anymore, much less 2 in a row. Both drivers were ancient(85+).
