and I'm sure I'll ask questions you've heard a hundred times before..

Quick intro: I just purchased a '94 STS for my wife. 69k on the clock. Runs/drives like a new car. Whoever owned the car prior to us must have been fanatical about the car, as it is in VERY good condition for a 9 year old machine. It does have some typical dings and scratches associated with a car its' age - but nothing bad. It is not as fully optioned as some Sevilles that we looked at..

My personal ride is a Chevy Caprice 9C1 police cruiser..

My buddy has a '93 that looks exactly like your car. I've always thought that was the best looking color on the STS. And as was said before.....We're all newbys on this site......C-Ya!


We're out here in the land of fruits and nuts so the weather isn't a factor to often and the car always looks great!:banana:

NOTHING is easy to keep clean in wintertime! :D We've been getting snowfall every day lately, with all of the typical salt slop that goes with it. Right now, the chrome wheels are looking brutal..

I've always been particular towards white cars in general. My Caprice is white; the Jetta we traded for the STS is white. I have owned many white cars over the years. The White Diamond paint is a knockout color to me! And the moonroof option was a necessity! This is the exact car I had in mind since I started looking for one. Well - I'd prefer the lighter colored interior over the camel color - but as clean as this one was, I'll live with it! :cool:

I like your slogan "friends dont let friends drive Fords". Thats great.

As with winter time, my 02 grand prix looks like a white car (its black), but i dont care, its a lease (beat it, beat it good). I drive that car when i have anger to let out :p . I was going to wash it today, but the hose i bought it too short. DO'H.

Nice winter car! It's been snowing here like crazy. Basically snow every day here on the island.. Unusual for us. We get our fair share of snow - but not usually this much..

I like white cars too. You can see them at night when you're driving for leisure or just to show off. :p Black? That's another story. It looks best during the day (when you can see it) and unfortunately, you're at work.. Well, in most cases...

I didnt pick the color, it is my parents car that i use during the winter months (and all the time until i get my eldo). Actually, i just drove over to the lot to take a look at the eldo i showed earlier and it wasnt there (must be somewhere else, like the dealership is listing it for someone), and im gonna call sometime.
