The last Ford Crown Victoria rolled off the line in Canada a couple weeks ago.
During my career I had eight of them.
The police and cab vehicle of choice,it was low,fast and heavy in it's police interceptor role.
Most of my oppo's loved the vehicle and I turned down a new Chevrolet Impala to keep my Vic.
I should imagine the cop shows to hit the UK in future will have the nasty,tiny and underpowered Chevy(a little like the Astra but with a gasoline motor)which has no full size spare tire so to abide by state law you have to keep a full size in the trunk where most of your stuff went including modem for comm's etc.
Stupid,Stupid Stupid.
