This is my 2000 Crown Victoria. I absolutely love the paint on it, but don’t let that fool you, this car has been nothing but issues. A 230K mile car is exactly what you pay for. Only reason I have this beauty is because my SUVs engine died and this happened to pop up on Facebook market one day. I love this car, and I want to fix her up to decent shape. The radio doesn’t work, 80% of the dash lights don’t work. It has an exhaust leak. No A/C. I’m thinking of renaming this car to “insecure” because it’s beautiful on the outside, but on the inside it’s barely holding together.

Memoriam for “12”
2004 Crown Vic


2004-2020 - lives on as a lemon racer
On the night of April 6th, 2020, while on a 2 lane state highway, i obliterated a deer with this car. Obliterated is not an exaggeration. Only the Crown Vic can hit a deer at 70 mph and drive home with not even a broken radiator. I sold the old girl to someone who didn’t care about body parts anyway, because he was taking them off for a race. A win/win, I didn’t have to repair it, and he already had some of the work done, haha!

Insecure sounds like a good name to me. Had a 05 Vic for 300K miles and the interior held up perfectly.

Not so much the White Paint as I had to get it repainted. The paint just started peeling off the hood and other places.

Only other issues I had were the A/C Accumulator [had to fix that quick in Miami] and water pump. No other issues. Best vehicle I ever owned!

I do indeed. Here are some. Not sure if I’d be allowed to post the actual deer I hit, but it’s organs were sliding out of its abdomen when I walked up to it.





You see the green all over the front? That’s straight up feces. I couldn’t get the smell of blood and poop out of my nose for weeks.
