POLL: What Kind of Car Should the Town Supervisor Be Driving?

With an aging Crown Victoria on its way out, Southold Town considers a new ride for its leader.

POLL: What Kind of Car Should the Town Supervisor Be Driving? POLL: What Kind of Car Should the Town Supervisor Be Driving?

Two Supervisors have driven up and down the North Fork in a black Ford Crown Victoria— first Josh Horton and now Scott Russell.

But the 10-year-old car is "done," according to mechanic Teddy Griffin at in Mattituck. Repairs to the 10-year-old car have exceeded its value. 

"The reason it got deadlined is because it needs a new intake manifold," he said. "And to fix that you have to change the whole top of the motor."

The Town Board is advertising for bids for a new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4, or a similar model. At Tuesday's work session, models such as the Ford Escape and the Ford Focus were also suggested.

What do you think would fit the supervisor the best as a replacement vehicle in 2012? An SUV or a smaller, more fuel-efficient car? Would it bother you to see the Town purchase a foreign car if it was the best deal?

Take our poll or let us know your thoughts below.
