Say “Adios” To The Rugged And, Some Say, The Best Police Car Ever To Grace Our Streets

That’s right, the Crown Vic, by Ford is being retired from our nations police departments. Although Ford ceased production in 2011 police agencies kept the ole’ Crown Vic. Cops have love affairs with their families’, their dogs and their police cars. Some of these “bad boys” been on the beat for over 12 years. That’s a lot more than any other police car…ever!

Cops, in testimonial’s have said…”Best car for handling, speed and storage. Mine had 270,000 and still going strong.”

A cop in Ft. Worth said, “Chased and caught a Ferrari. The kid driving asked, How’d you catch me? Cop said, this ain’t your father’s V-8.” The Officer let the driver go.

Yet another Officer says, “Drove that car through some really rough ‘hoods. That car was my friend.” Fully understand.

As the last of the operational Crown Vic’s fade into the sunset let’s all take a moment to bid a fond farewell to one of the best. Now and forever!

  1. The cop in Ft Worth “Chased and caught a Ferrari …then the “Officer let the driver go” ???? If true…which I doubt ….amazinly irresponsible endangering the public in such a clownish way.

    1. Martin: Got it off an article in P 1magazine. May or may not have given the guy a “hustle” but then it’s about the car. Got any stories about the CV? Love to hear ’em. Stay Safe
