Dorothy For Cotm

Recommended Posts

So it's time, Dorothy is gonna run for COTM.

Dorothy is my 2000 Mercury Sable LS Premium. Duratec/AX4N powered and far from the way she left the factory.

I bought her on November 8th of 2006 from a local used car dealer with 104k on the clock (now at 137k). Original equipment included Fog lamps, leather seating, 5 seat console shift, 7 spoke alloy wheels, sun roof, Duratec engine, and Chestnut Brown Metallic exterior.

I have changed a lot of things on this car in the past 5 years.

- New engine at 120k miles, Now has a 2004 Duratec currently with about 37k miles (installed with 20k on it)

- Rebuilt suspension, Eibach springs with KYB GR-2 struts, 24/26mm sway bar combo, Heavy duty endlinks, poly front sway bar bushings, fn-74 front brakes, rear disc swap, strut tab mod in the front, reverse tab mod in the rear.

- Interior mods, 99 SHO leather seating, 03 Sable cluster (parchment), red LED cluster and shift selector back lighting, auto dim/compass mirror, Mach Audio with console mounted cd changer, 3rd gen sable wood grain shift knob, charcoal carpet, door panels, and side trim, gen 4.5 wood grain window switch plates

- Exterior Mods, Rear factory style spoiler, all chrome exterior trim plastidipped black, black winter 99 SHO/SE Sport rims, 18" BBS Jaguar rims for summer, Headlight LEDs, HID Headlights, Blacked out headlights, Custom painted tail lights, red brake calipers, gen 3 SHO exhaust tips, body color grille slats, mercury deleted from grille emblem, debadged rear, DOHC 24V badges removed, garage door seal front lip.

- Exhaust, all cats in place, resonator removed and replaced with Magnaflow round muffler, leading to a 99 SHO rear y-pipe, dual muffler delete pipes, gen 3 SHO exhaust tips.

I am sure I am forgetting some stuff, there is so much. This car will never be done, I have a few things planned and a few things I am working on

Ive personally driven his car, and i gotta say, i love the way this car handles! even though it felt so low, that when i took dorothy over an approach, i was practically crying cause i was thinking hardcore that i was gonna get hung up/bottom out laugh.gif. but it made it!
