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.

125,886 Mile Update

A quick 125,886 mile update:  Vic FINALLY got it's oil change today... way overdue and yet the oil on the dipstick was darn clean looking!  Trying to figure out the car's small exhaust leak... or at least it SEEMS to be one.  It was put on a lift and looked at last month but there's wasn't anything obvious.  The cold and wet spring here in eastern Massachusetts meant it took me a while to get rust converter shmoo onto the car's wear spots.  Snow tires are off and other than that mystery leak, things have been uneventful.  Hopefully I am not jinxing myself!!
