    Just bought my beast car. An 03 black beast Mercury Marauder. This is a beast car. Any other MM owners? It’s named AM after the legendary beast.

    You just need to throw a cherry on the dash and a strobe light on the DS mirror and you will be good to go.

    Nice find. What are your plans for it? A bit of time at the strip or.. no? Mostly stock or.. beast mods?

    I wonder how 'heavy duty' the rear axles are on Crown Vics Interceptors and Marauders.

    It’s 100% stock even original tires. I will keep it that way. Many are beast mods.
    There’s one on you tube over 1000 hp! Can’t wait for May.

    Please don't drive those on public roads, unless it's to a tire shop to get some new rubber. The tire integrity and rubber itself starts to break down after a few years, no matter the condition they've been kept in or how many miles they've been driven on.

    Everyone has a different number, but here are some examples, from TireRack ( https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/techpage.jsp?techid=138 ):

    The British Rubber Manufacturers Association (BRMA) recommended practice issued June, 2001, states "BRMA members strongly recommend that unused tyres should not be put into service if they are over six years old and that all tyres should be replaced ten years from the date of their manufacture."

    More recently, The Japan Automobile Tire Manufacturers Association (JATMA) recommended practice issued May, 2005, states "customers are encouraged to have their vehicle tires promptly inspected after five years of use to determine if the tires can continue to be used (recommends spare tires be inspected as well). Furthermore, even when the tires look usable, it is recommended that all tires (including spare tires) that were made more than ten years ago be replaced with new tires. Additionally, because in some cases automobile makers—based on the characteristics of the relevant vehicle—stipulate in the owner's manual the timing of tire inspection and replacement. Please read and confirm the content of the owner's manual."

    Several European vehicle manufacturers of high performance sports cars, coupes and sedans identify that "under no circumstances should tires older than 6 years be used" in their vehicle owner's manual. However, it should be noted that European recommendations must include driving conditions that include roads like the German Autobahn, which allows vehicles to be legally driven at their top speeds for extended periods of time.

    While American driving conditions don't include the high-speed challenges of the German Autobahn, the U.S. divisions of DaimlerChrysler and Ford Motor Company joined their European colleagues in 2005 by recommending the tires installed as Original Equipment be replaced after six years of service.

    Yes, this information is a little older, but relevant to the time frame your tires were built.

    I googled the title of this thread and it was a big mistake.

    A friend of mine had one of these back in the day. Fantastic car. Me, him and another friend took on a long-ass road trip one summer. We'd do a 3-man weave as to who got to sleep in the backseat and just drive all day until we got to a place that looked cool. Stop there, have ourselves a time, get up the next day and do it over again. Went pretty much all the way around the U.S. and a good chunk of Canada over the course of a couple months.

    Wow, that's a dump no offense :laugh:

    I feel like you definitely could have bought a better car for whatever you spent on that...unless it was free, then it's a good deal.

    edit - damn a car with the security code thing on the outside of the door? I havent seen that in a decade.

    Dunno I’m not a Ford/Mercury guy but I can appreciate someone who doesnt go out and buy a civic or jetta like all the other 17 year old girls. Car is far from a “dump”
