    New MM owner from NC

    Hello everyone. I had finally purchased a 2003 Black/Dk.Charcoal Marauder 300A in late August with 76k miles. My plans are to use it for an occasional long distance use & as a back-up vehicle for my daily driver/winter weather driver [1995 Ford Crown Victoria P71 w/ 276k miles & still going strong.]. I'm presently enjoying some vacation time in South Florida with it & so far, it has been a treat to drive with an avg. of 23 mpg on the highway. I'm hoping to keep this one as long as I can & keeping it presentable.

    Congrats on your purchase & welcome to the site!!!

    Judging a person does not define who they are... It defines who YOU are.

    "Many of us are experiencing 'PMS'..... Parked Marauder Syndrome. Ya' know....when you put your Marauder away for the winter to avoid the icy and salty roads" - Joe Walsh

    I've come to the conclusion that most people are a-holes and have no respect.

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the site and your new ride.
    (#6178 in black per FPIC)
    Call 1-800-FORD-788 and press "1". Have the last 6 of your VIN handy. You will get the numbers for FREE. You'll pay $$$ for the certificate.

    MM traded in 8/9/13 @ 128909 miles. It was fun for almost 8 years. I met airmercpun on 1/17/14. He was the new owner of my former ride. -Now gone.

    Update: back in the game with a late build 03 GMGS with some MM add ons like Escape audiophile radio w/Sirius sat radio, rear sway bar, catback exhaust, and header panel.

    Rest In Peace:

    See my garage file for part numbers and whatnot.

    IMHO, this site- the members that I chat with- and the ones that I now Hang with- are like my 2nd family. There is such an ongoing welcome feeling here that even members who don't or no longer own the MM can feel.
