Welcome to the Crown Vics ETC blog!

On April 6, 2000, I purchased a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria LX HPP with 23,490 miles. I decided to start a little website for it featuring a running log of my experiences with the car. Vic 1.0 was retired in 2015 due to rust and electrical issues. Vic 2.0 was a 2006 P71 in Blue Pearl that belonged to my boyfriend. It was a Ford demo and never saw actual police use. It was damaged in September of 2018 with well over 186,000 miles. It was replaced by Vic 3.0 in October 2018 with a 2008 P71 in Silver Birch with 120,971 miles.

A Vic Takes a Hit...

This thanksgiving, Todd's mother had a little ooopsie with her Vic.  Somehow or another, she managed to hit a parked car.  Long story short, we drove out to help her, and upon arrival, found her car perfectly drivable, with the worst damage being a blown airbag.  The parked car that got hit was a recent Nissan Altima.  All I know is, I would NOT want to get hit in an Altima!!  The trunk lid had popped open, the trunk floor looked all pushed in, and the bumper was all smashed upwards.  It had to be towed away. 

Todd just drove his mother's Vic home.  No drips.  No front end damage.

DAMAGE:  small hole in left marker light, small hole in grille, bent license plate, plate holder wrecked, bumper wrecked, crack in header panel, blown driver's airbag.  So far, the car is perfectly drivable.

But that Nissan..............

(Hood does shut... Todd had it popped open for inspection)
