The Thick Blue Line: 2008 Ford Crown Victoria P71 Police Interceptor
Sales of Ford’s legendary Crown Victoria sedan stopped for the general public after the 2007 model year, but fleet sales continued through 2011. Legend has it that many police departments put in large orders for the aging Panther platform beast because they were concerned about the reliability of the replacement vehicles from Chevy/Ford/Dodge, but if you want a slightly used ex-Police use Crown Vicky, you can get one for the contents of a child’s piggy bank. Find this 2008 Ford Crown Victoria offered for $2450 in Warren, MI via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
From the seller:
I have a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria ex Police vehicle with a 4.6 liter v-8 motor police interceptor with 118k miles that runs and drives excellent. Everything works, it has the spotlights also. Motor and trans are in excellent condition. Runs and drives great. Must see to appreciate.
Price is $2450.

Looks like a lot of fun for the money. I bet that the fast lane would magically clear out as you approached !
Although Cops are the salt of the earth,and P71's are the way to roll in the fast lane, the Detroit area cops have to drive through more salt than just about anywhere in the country. While all Michiganders (including fleet managers) have learned the value of frequent car washes that include the underside of the car, that cleansing spray never makes its way into the engine bay or onto the buzillions of nuts and bolts holding this thing together. While I'm certain a 118K mile copper is the way to go, anyone ever having to deal with the repair work on this will have to keep the old fire wrench close at hand.
Valid point Hunsbloger,but for those of us not fortunate enough to live in the sunshine states, you could still get a few fun years out of this vehicle. I treat all of my daily drivers with an annual rustproofing application. Much cheaper in the long run than replacing brake and fuel lines. krown.com.
