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.

UPDATE: Charge it...

Wellp, turns out Vic's battery was indeed almost 3 years old.  I bought it in August 2008.  Thankfully, the dealer gave me a new one under warranty since I had the original receipt. It suddenly popped into my head that during one visit to Taxi Guy when Vic was broken, there were jumper cables attached to it while it sat.  So it actually first died while it was in the shop, then I drove it a few times, then it sat for almost a week, resulting in the really dead battery.
