Craigslist ad – “94 Crown Victoria. Nice shape, needs rear brakes.”
Lift kit included at no extra charge.
Yeah, keep laughing. That’s probably lifted from a real Craigslist ad.
I’m guessing that the rear axle might be available for purchase separately in a different Craigslist ad. From a different seller, of course.
LOL..Don’t forget “first to see will buy”
I like the rake. Kinda racy.
The night before…
I had the same thought come into my mind when I first saw the picture.
Yep, me too, as well as the Myth-busters Episode to see if the Movie Scene was actually plausible.
Me too!! God-durn Pharoahs!
I seem to recall a similar axle-removing scene in one of the ‘Lethal Weapon’ movies as well . . . or some similar cop movie – they were jackhammering a perfectly-good sidewalk as cover for attaching the cable to the bad guys’ rear axle, and then later had to explain to their boss about the sidewalk.
Midnight motors parts harvest.
The next time this car is on the road, it will be sitting on 30-inch wheels.
Or just sitting on the road.
It looks 2 tyred for me to buy
That’s one of those new Panther trailers.
Stand by for justice!!!!
Looks like someones becoming a Pharaoh….
The rear diff probably blew up and the rear axle/diff was so jacked up(excuse the pun) that it was cheaper and easier to go to the junk yard and get a good used one and put it in. A surprising amount of those 89-97 T-Birds and 92-97 Panthers blew them with a little power.
Rear axle repossession. Owner didn’t pay “Rent-An-Axle” on time.
There’s one of them around here in the same color with the same droopy rear bumper. I give the guy credit for tackling that on his own.
Reminds me of a then-new 2008 Accord sitting on blocks with its rear end elevated and all 4 wheels missing, lug nuts scattered around and under the car. This was spotted in a what I thought was a respectable residential area in Queens, New York.
My Torino looks just like this right now (albeit, in the comfort of my garage). I have the 9″ rear axle housing getting powdercoated, while I detail the suspension parts and do a few subtle upgrades. I am hoping to get the housing back soon, so I can drive the car, the powdercoater is taking forever.
You know your axle’s ‘live’ when it jacks up your car and goes for a walk.
The rear suspension’s more independent than usual.
