Listen — I miss the Crown Victoria as much as you all do. It was a great American car with great American character, and its sheer ubiquity as a law enforcement vehicle added quite a bit to its charm. But we all really need to start coping with the fact that it's gone.
The Robocop reboot is currently filming in Toronto, Canada. Just the other day, we got our first grainy peek at the new Robo-Taurus that Robocop robo-uses to robo-save the day.
Since original movies are no longer a thing, there is a robo-reboot of Robocop currently filming to hit theaters and pillage teenagers of their money. In the original movie, Robocop drove a Ford Taurus.
After receiving complaints from several police departments that lower control arms had cracked on a number of 2008-2012 police spec Impalas, General Motors pulled the trigger on a recall, offering to replace the lower control arms on more than 36,000 vehicles free of charge.
We love police cruisers. They're big, fast, parts are plentiful, and they're usually pretty cheap used. But even though they're cool, using one to pretend you're a cop isn't.
Faced with the eventual phasing out of Ford's legendary Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, the California Highway Patrol is interested in replacing the aging cruisers with an interceptor version of the Ford Explorer. Officials said that newer sedans like the Dodge Charger and Chevrolet Caprice are too small.
Ford brought a stealth version of its Police Interceptor to SEMA, sporting blacked-out lenses, a one-inch suspension drop and wider tires. Perfect for undercover work, except for, you know, the chrome-rimmed wheels and bright-red brake calipers.
The word "miraculous" scarcely describes the survival of a Santa Maria, California police officer who wrapped his Ford Police Interceptor around a tree Sunday morning. It's what the local Police Chief calls the "worst accident he's seen in 35 years."
The 2012 Ford Police Interceptor unveiled today is the latest in a long line of Ford squad cars. Here's why the sight of even a civilian Crown Vic now induces Pavlovian application of brakes in all motorists.
An anonymous tipster snapped this Virginia Beach police cruiser blocking both handicapped spaces at an IHOP while the officer chatted up the staff for over an hour. He didn't even eat. This is why people think some cops are asshats.
Before you ask, no, this isn't it. But an all-new Interceptor is set to replace the old-and-busted Crown Vic, and it's likely to be rear-wheel drive. Get in the car, perp.
At every 24 Hours Of LeMons race, the teams vote on the car they'd like to see destroyed… and they get their wish! This time it was the manual-trans-equipped Crown Vic of Blues Brothers Racing.
Jim Hunt has channeled the power of the beard for good. Miffed at speeding motorists in front of his home in Summerville, South Carolina, Jim decided to build what has come to be known as the "Tric-Vic", a fake-out cop car which he says works to slow down the speeders. The clever lawn ornament is constructed of…
Since Ford straight-up refuses to revisit its Galaxie with a ~600-hp Cammer 427 construct (which would be a bold-ass move to be sure), we'll have to satisfy our gonzo-sedan fantasies by way of civilian tweakage. Take the MadMax2006 project by Long Island PCM tuner, Powersurge Performance. The team took a 2000 Crown…
