Top Gear USA is starting their new season tonight on HISTORY and it looks like the boys will be hooning some cop cars. Since we learned almost nothing from Adam and Rutledge we went to RallyCross champion and Top Gear cohost Tanner Foust all about it. The man had lots of interesting things to say. Read on!
Late last month, the Washington State Patrol pulled their last new Ford Crown Victoria out of the fleet stable and assigned it to an officer.
The P71 package upgraded pretty much all the Crown Vic's hardware for police duty, with the exception of the engine's cylinder count. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Crown Vic rectifies that oversight with a Triton Ten under its hood, but does its price tag also have too many added numbers?
In 1967, the first Ford Falcon came off the line at Ford's St. Thomas Assembly in Talbotville, Ontario. Here is video from two weeks ago of the plant's final days — as it builds the very last of Ford's venerable Crown Victoria sedans.
Today, the Ford Crown Victoria, a slope-nosed metal box with an unquenchable thirst for gas built with manufacturing methods Henry Ford would have recognized, died after 32 years of production. Here's why its passing marks the sad end of a great American era.
After 32 years in production, the last Ford Crown Victoria will roll off the assembly line today. It's a record that surpasses all other North American vehicles, including the Model T. Its final destination, however, isn't a museum in Detroit or a American collector. It's being sent to Saudi Arabia.
The automotive destruction seen here is what happened after a Delaware state trooper suffered a medical emergency while driving. According to witness report the cruiser veered off the road and flew through the air before the crashing into several new cars.
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.
Ford today confirmed plans to phase out production of its still-popular-after-10-years-on-one-revision police car, the Crown Victoria, in 2011, at a plant in Ontario. The future of the no-longer-unsafe-at-any-speed four door remains unclear.
"Son, you know how fast you were goin'?" If we saw this red, white and blue P71 Crown Vic in our rear-view mirror, we'd hope to hell it was five under. [ZipperHead's MySpace Page]
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…
