Default Farewell Crown Vic

unless you buy a bunch
As of the 2008 model year, the Crown Victoria will only be sold to fleet buyers, according to Ford. As of June 21, 2007, the Crown Victoria was removed from Ford'* website, most likely to promote the 2008 Ford Taurus.

I always liked these

that is one of the reasons I like them, very safe!
Also, the Crown Vic was the last RWD Body-On-Frame Sedan which is another reason I like them

LMAO, that'* one of the reasons I DON'T like them. Way too stone age. Ford has finally figured out that it'* needs to get with the times

You mean you don't like the RWD and V8? I can understand not liking the Body on frame though

On behalf of police officers (not police DEPARTMENTS, I just mean the people who have to drive them) across the country, GOOD RIDDANCE. I can NAME five cops in Ohio alone that would still be on patrol if Ford hadn't designed yet another car bomb.

I did like the Caprice/Impala SS of the 90s. I'd love to find one of those
