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.

Start me up...

On the morning of the 7th, I went to move Vic out of the driveway and park it in front of the house.  It sounded odd when it started up.  So after I shut it off, something told me to try and start it again.

Long and short of it, the starter died after 11+ years.  On the side of the road.

One flatbed ride later, Taxi Guy gave it a new starter and an oil change, which was WAY overdue.
The Ride of Shame...
