I had another thread on this, thinking of buying a 1992 Town Car, but also considering a 1991-92 Chevy Caprice sedan. I pretty much know the pros and cons of each... I am sure the Chevy would be cheaper to maintain and is also a soft and comfortable car, but curious to see which of these others would prefer.

I understand there are some that do not like big cars and I appreciate that, but I do.

1990-92 Lincoln Town Car...




1991-92 Chevrolet Caprice

whoa dude scale down the ads a bit they are huge..
I would go for a 93-96 caprice model because they got rid of the skirted rear wheel wells and look better IMO.. maybe find a used cop car with the LT1

Perhaps retro cop car... Anymore Crown vic, Chargers, Durango, Impala, Tahoe come to mind as police vehicle.

yeah but now the leather sets will be used and abuse and will be close to 17-18 years old I would rather stick with cloth seat because less chance they will crack and split. the only 2 cars I would love to have but would have to trade my 05 GTO in for is a 02-04 corvette Z06 or a new camaro SS but the new camaro puts out pretty much the same perfomance numbers as my gto and I would have to get another loan to pay it off so for now I will hold on to my car till the 05-07 505HP 7.0 corvette Z06 become affordable in a few years I will take a look.

The problem is I have a 91 F250 which is my daily driver and it has close to 210K miles and is getting old and tired and seeing as it is what I need and use to commute to work and it hauls a 17ft boat through the moutains every summer and I am thinking of getting a newer ford F250/F350 maybe pick up a nice used 99-03 superduty with a F350 7.3 liter powerstroke with a ZF-6 speed maual and a stock dana 60 up front and a dana 80 outback it and stock 4.10 gears to replace my daily driver and keep the GTO as my weekend car and continue to mod it out.

Cloth will wear out too. The material will wear thin. There is always leather conditioner
