My new Daily Driver!!

The wife and I had agreed that once our son was born we would get me a new daily driver that would be more baby friendly vs the Geo Prizm I am driving. I had my mind set on a Pontiac G8. So about a few weeks ago, we started looking and I started visiting dealerships. Ended up putting a deposit down on a used G8 only for the dealership to sell the car the next day. So after looking and looking my in-laws offered that we take their 1994 Mercury Grand Marquis and save the money which we would be putting towards a new car purchase. Though my heart was set on the G8, I couldn't pass up a free car. Needless to say, I will be selling the Prizm, so if anyone needs a VERY realible daily driver, let me know!!

The Car:
1994 Mercury Grand Marquis
66,200 miles
4.6L V8

The car was orginally my wife's grandmother's car who purchased the car brand new in 1994. When she passed my wife's parents took over the car and just used it for road trips as they really didn't need it.

Mods planned so far:
window tint
JLT Cold air intake


1992 25th Anniversary Heritage Edition Camaro RS Vert
2002 35th Anniversary Edition Camaro SS

Wow, that car is pretty much just like new.
Impressive for a 15-year-old car!

You can't beat the price!

I like it. It should be a good, safe, and reliable car for your family. It's also in really good condition for its age. You can't beat FREE!

Can't beat that price! Sometimes the right thing to do is not always what we want aren't cheap so. Ever try to pull a kid out of a child seat, in a two door, holding on to a diaper bag and other crap? Good decision.

I put my 5 year old daughter in her carseat in the back of my '99 Z everyday. It's not that bad. It's actually pretty nice being able to reach her from the drivers seat without straining or having to take my eyes off the road.

I can't believe these are photos of a 15-year-old car!

It should last just about forever. Cars don't get much more durable than these old Panthers.
