    Armored '95 Fleetwood

    While trawling ebay for military vehicles (like deuce and a halfs) I stumbled upon this '95 Fleetwood armored by Roush for the Joint Chiefs of Staff:

    Check out the 1.5'' glass.

    The modifications added over 2400 lbs

    Seems like it would make a good vehicle for a drug boss and a pretty good deal considering what this thing must have cost the fed

    I guess back then the DOD had tons of money and even did the custom emblem on the back rest! Looks like a car used in a B movie it so cheesy!

    Seems like it would be massively underpowered for getting out of a bad spot..

    Re: Armored '95 Fleetwood

    Have had 2 of these...what a great car, modern take on the classic Fleetwood. Non-Armoured of course.

    First a Cotillion White with Red leather 1993 Brougham, and then I bought a Marblehead with Tan 1995 Brougham with the LT1.

    Where as even in 1992 the Brougham looked like a car from the 70's, old school and not even an airbag, the 1993 and newer ones are so rare, and comfy, then later on with the LT1, really cool cars and cheaply upgrade-able, etc.
    Certified car nut...ask me, I've probably owned it, driven it, sold it...or thought about it...
