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.

New Addition to the Fleet!

After years of driving hand-me-down cars, Dad finally bought himself a car not 10 years old and rusty!  Meet the latest addition to the fleet, a 2010 Mercury Grand Marquis LS.  It started life as a rental, then it was sold to a man who traded it in for a Taurus, as the Marquis was too large for him. 

The car has about 22,000 miles on it and is pretty clean.  There are only a few small scratches on it.  We picked it up this morning, and so far, Dad likes it a lot.  His '95 Town Car (a hand-me-down from my mother) is at his mechanic's, the interior torn apart due to electrical problems.  It is destined for the scrap yard...
