1985 Ford LTD Crown Victoria

Cars that I have owned

The first car that I ever owned was a 1985 Ford LTD Crown Victoria. Sadly, I got this car in the year 2000. Don't get me wrong this car was bad ass, however, try convincing that to your peers the first day of your Junior year of High School.

So let me tell you about this car. The number one thing that I remember about this car is it's length. The 1985 Ford LTD Crown Victoria was a staggering 17.58 feet long. It was so long that I used to have to wait in the parking lot for others to leave before I was able to back out of my parking spot. It didn't take me long to figure out that I needed to park in the back row.

In hindsight I now realize that I was driving around in a luxury vehicle even 15 years after it was made. Despite it's length, the Crown Vic was classy in every way. It had features that some didn't even know had existed in 1985, automatic headlights for example.

All in all I miss this car. The Crown Victoria had a 5.8L V8 engine that would out race anyone of my friends. It was so powerful that just idling at a stop light in the winter time would spin the tires. I would literally have to feather the brakes just to take off. It was a 4 door, had an all leather seat interior, power windows, power locks, AC, and like I said before automatic headlights, all in the year 1985.
