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.

Vic 3.0 had its first repair under my watch January 11, 2019... Long story short, I get in the car, start it up, and shift into... NOTHING!  The transmission shifter wasn't connected to anything anymore, the cable had rusted in two.  Next day, a AAA towtruck-man helped manually shift it into DRIVE and off I went to Taxi Guy's shop.  It went right onto a lift and shut off.  Got it back and all is well again.  Wasn't happy about it, though...
