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 is a 2006 P71 that belonged to my boyfriend. To read posts prior to 2010, click a link at right, or go to Crown Vics, ETC.

This morning I caught a very quick glimpse of a marked Massachusetts State Police cruiser on a flatbed... a brand spankin' new Ford Interceptor. It was on a flatbed headed in the direction of Devens MA. There is a state police barracks there, along with an EVOC training facility. I tried to find the car later in the day, but it was most likely deep inside state property by that time...

|Old connectors... original 14 yr old one at left|
Then I looked at the other cable. That one had the original, 14 year old connector, but half of it had disappeared and was only about the width of a wedding ring. I decided that it would be too hard to try and replace it, but while I was reinstalling it to the battery, SNAP!! The thing finally fell apart. That meant I HAD to replace it.
|New cable ends... will they work???|
