That's the best laugh I've had in a week!

An Indian subcontinent writer, barely fluent in English, who evidently doesn't own a car let alone a Crown Vic, who was watching a Mr. Random video, interpreting it, getting almost everything wrong... and then writing a net article about it.

Makes Newsmax look like Encyclopedia Britannica.

Can I have those three wasted minutes of life back, please?

I wasn't certain if that "article" was a joke, or just plain "ignorance in print." Doesn't that publication have a proofreader?

I looked at the credentials of the "author," and if that guy really is an engineer, I'd hate to encounter something he designed and built.

This website is plain dense.

Boxes are apparently hard to work on, there's an excess amount of them, and only the 1992-2011 cars should be saved because they're a cultural icon?

I'd love for this writer to stick his head outside once in a while and go show me all the Boxes he sees rolling around he so opines over.

Just an entire website for the casual click-bait consumer with no real depth or proper research.

Mr. Random himself is not always right.

Yeah....about 80% of the information on Mr Random's videos is wrong.
And when you get some other guy watching his videos and transforming it into a blog post, it simply gets worse...

I've tried giving Mr Random correct information on several occasions, every time has resulted in derogatory remarks and being called a hater. He doesn't care if what he says is wrong, as long as people watch it.

I don’t like Mr Randoms videos much either. As said above, lot of the [censored] he says is outright wrong. I don’t even know if he is a member.

Best features are full frame, P71 swaybars, and limited slip differential.

So I have only heard of Mr. Random, as I don't watch YT much. Well at all really. What does he purport as being truth that isn't? What did you attempt to correct him with Davidzq? Curiosity ...

Mr Randomn also doesn't like being called out on b.s "truths" and tries to use his law enforcement background as the be all end all authority on the subject. Just because the shop told you something to get you off their back doesn't make it true... And his rabid fan base back when I used to watch the odd video. oy.. whackerville.

I often leave multi-paragraph lists of his claims and what about them is incorrect in the comments on YouTube.
But for the most part, he loves talking about things which the police department did to HIS vic "check your Vic for this obviously aftermarket switch that does this thing".
He also loves insisting that almost every P71 is equipped with rare options (Fire Suppression, armored doors, traction control, etc).
One good example is his "Highway Patrol Crown Vic" video, in which he talks about this "rare factory package" and all of the "factory features" they included, most of which are aftermarket items (skid plates, hood vents, Tremco, etc). Out of his 10 points listed on the video, 10 of them were incorrect.
His response to my comment was that I should "just PAY attention to what was being said".

I respond to a few posts every week on Facebook dealing with "I saw this in a video, tried it, and it didn't work. What's wrong". Traction Control being a common one.


A quick scan of comments for my name (David Hensley) on most of the Vic specific videos will give you an idea of how often he posts incorrect/incomplete information.

Well I can't think of those youtube videos so I guess I've been lucky so far to not waste any of my life watching them.. Or maybe I started and gave up when I saw it was BS.

I miss the days when an internet search brought up mostly personal websites people made about their cars or model of car. Back then it was annoying when you saw people making a website with a bunch of random pictures of their car and no real info. Now you mainly find a bunch of BS or commercial sites.

You are not missing anything. I have his channel in youtubes 'don't show me this channel'.
David; yeah, the closest to being factory is that you could order all that aftermarket stuff and it would be installed by Crown Automotive (aftermarket) before it got delivered to the selling dealership.
