    Well, I own 3 Panthers (two Mercurys, and one Lincoln) and I didn't want to post this in the Lincoln forums, so here goes.
    This is my 93 Grand Marquis. It's my daily driver/winter beater. It was, until I started it last week and kinda made some funny clanking noises. Like someone threw a wrench into the oil pan.
    Here is the result:

    So it's eating coolant like a champ. The good thing, is the 06 CVPI motor that's been sitting in the garage while I powder coat parts for it. But before it goes in, I'm going to swap blocks. I'm dropping the iron block (153lbs) for an aluminum block (79 lbs). A weigh reduction like that is welcomed by my means!
    And:

    So, essentially, my winter beater died and became my winter build. Odd.
    On the plus side, it should have a sold +50hp by the time it rolls out.
