With deep regrets to let my 1990 Crown Vic (#57) Blumo go...
The 'Affordable Care Act" proved to be anything but and has forced my hand.
She does require some TLC but is original from the movie. The 9 survivors were worker Bees and thus I have left her as is in that there is no new paint, graphics work or re-engineering. I have added a Sony Xplode and that's about it.
The Mojo is intact right down to when Dan had backed into something...
Here are some highlights. Hopefully this link will work for you...

- Howdy, Blue!! Geez, first Shirley Temple dies and now this ... the end is nigh.
I remember when you bought this Bluesmobile. On the first auction I seem to recall you were outbid at the last minute by something like a penny. Is that right? A penny?? But you made sure you snagged it on the re-list. Sorry to hear you've got to part ways, lots of pics and memories, though.
Just to reiterate so people know for sure, this is an absolutely 100% guaranteed authentic screen used Bluesmobile from BB2000. No screwing around, it's the real deal. I hope a true fan can find a good home for her.
Best of luck with the sale, Leo. Thanks for letting us know.
Wow. What would/did an authentic like this one auction/sell for?
Coincident as I seen a similar well kept circa 1990 crown Vic on the road just yesterday. In the snow, ugggh, don't know why, lol!! So it made me think of those cop specials. Not a blues nor cop piece mind you, but a standard and in decent condition. Good job to that owner.

I was ready to go on this one but the correct repair would be a complete frame replacement. I have a friend in the same area the car is in(he runs a dealer body shop) trying to locate a good used frame and someone to do the swap down there in FL for me because the way the trans crossmember is hanging I was afraid a shipper would do more damage loading and unloading. The only frame he could locate was way too expensive (more than some cars we see for sale) and put the investment over the budget I allowed myself for the car. There are frames in other states that are reasonably priced but nowhere near the car. If he finds something it was meant to be.
