Picking up my 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis after new exhaust system was installed
What a ultra cool sound, low, but decent. Inside it is quite. With the window open, it is a whole different story. The trush mufflers in my older clip, are gone now and sold. Way too noisy incar.....

Building "Reprise" - A Custom 1951 Mercury
Over the last several years Bio Kustumz has been building this '51 Merc for Jerry Horton, the Guitarist for band Papa Roach. What started as a simple fix-it job uncovered some devastated metal work under loads of bondo. Bio Kustumz began hand forming each body panel, rechopped the roof and even machined their own wheels. Reprise will be featured in the Kinetik Audio SEMA booth this year. Filmed-Edited by Brian Goude Color correction by Cody Gephart Music: Papa Roach - Forever





1990 Mercury Grand Marquis
This beautiful grand marquis was once my uncle's before he took it off the road for emmissions test failure over a year ago. I would've liked to drive my date to the high school prom in this car if only it was still registered and running properly at the time. I did actually drive it and park it in that spot by hotwiring the fuel pump, overriding the computer just so the car would run long enough. Paint's still beautiful.

Starting up my 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis
Winter 2010, November 28th.: Starting up my mint 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis after weeks of standing still underneath my car port out in the cold. The irritating sound you hear when I film the inside is the lights-on reminder. Watch the hidden headlights pop up when I drive out of the car port. They are so cool! Got this car from the 1st. owner, who lives in Calgary. The car has the 460 BB V8 in it with 80k on the odometer.

2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of torque) Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD Rear Wheel Drive City/Highway MPG: 15/23 This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better idea of how it feels on the road. I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8 has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low. The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency, although the front end dives toward the ground. The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway). Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat. Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway, where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal. The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a couple of hours. Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to be a car I would consider buying used. R.I.P. Mercury and all the Panther platform cars that have been discontinued. The song at the beginning is Cradle of Love by Billy Idol, one of my favorite 80s songs.





1978 Mercury Marquis Brougham Cold-Start and Walkaround
CLICK MORE INFO AND COMMENT! I bought this car for a winter driver, but I'm sure if I take care of the motor it will last longer that that. It hadn't been on the road in many years, so it ran "interestingly" on the 4 hour ride home. It has a 400 CI and I believe a C6 tranny. I love driving it, just because it is so damn big, and probably an eye sore to everyone haha. Many people want to buy it from me to use as a demo car, but I don't think any of these cars should be used for that...even though it would probably kick ass...
