I don't have the problem with receipts, and my wife thinks my projects are fine, and wants to drive the '75 El Camino when it's done Very Happy

I have talked mine into driving my car a few times, but she doesn't like driving it. Maybe she will once it is finished.

My wife fears manual brakes, so she doesn't drive mine.  I think she does not like big cars in general since she doesn't like my crown Vic either.

Ever saw a mercury marauder? I think those could be made into a cool looking car. I think they are pretty much the same as a Vic.

The late model Marauders ARE Vics. Try one of the early Marauders.

My wife drives all my cars. She used to take my 56 Chevy to work when she had a lunch date so she could give people rides in it. She drives the 73 Malibu too. She not a fan of the Laguna as its not done on the inside plus I had her sit in it when I got it to push it off the car trailer with no breaks and steering column was not hooked up wires all over. I told her the curb will stop you but I think it still is a scary memories for her.

This would freak any one out. Glad that mess is gone now.

I bought my crown Vic new.  At the time (2003) the marauder had just come out but was out of my price range.  Also I still lived in a "urban" neighborhood where it would likely gotten stolen (plus the higher insurance) that goes with cars like that.

I like yours though it looks like an undercover car.

Wally I do not look forward to doing the wiring in my car. The look of the scares me to death.

When its that much of a mess you just rip it out and start new that's what I did.

I've done some work on my son's Crown Vic, and even though I'm not a Ford guy, that car is very well built, and with some very good designs involved.
I had to replace the trans "double hump" cross-member because of rust, and noticed it could be used on a G3 without much work !

A rats nest of wiring scares many folks. I'm kind of used to it, so I just wade into it if it's necessary. The wiring harness in my '75 Elco project is from a '77 I had, so it had to be transferred etc, so this one was an easy job.
