Well first of all, im going to end up spending thousands of dollars on this car anyways so just saying "why are you spending money on a sleeper" is pretty irrelevant to me. A crown vic is not even in the same category as the LS. Maybe stock it is but you can get the LS V8 version up to 1000hp, which (im not positive but im assuming) you cant get even close to in a crown vic. (aside from hp i think that the crown vic is ugly. Also i can make money on resale. There is a huge community of enthusiasts who love the LS, except everyone wishes it was an manual. Aside from this it a $2000 car. im planning on driving it into the ground. Oh and about the mustang, no. I would either go for a newer (05-06) non gt at be the douchebag driving a v6 mustang, or go with the 90s gt and be the douchebag driving a 90s mustang. Plus i need a four door, but even if i didnt, a mustang would still be my last choice.
