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: Intake Time...

Many of you know about the cracking of 4.6 intake manifolds.  Mine has been seeping now and then, and now that my engine light is on, today Vic will get dropped off at Taxi Guy for a new intake.  I am hoping that the engine light is for a weak coil pack, because that means more seepage.  We shall see... Thankfully Taxi Guy can do the job for a LOT less than a dealer.  He also does a lot of them, so he does it faster as well.
