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: Chitchatter...

We just dropped Vic off at Taxi Guy for a transmission service. Last week, the car chattered twice while on the highway. I'm told that one possible repair is to completely drain the transmission and torque converter, then use a different type of fluid. We shall see if this does the job. If not, a replacement vehicle might be inching closer and closer, which isn't good, as I am still trying to find work. Stay tuned...
