I don't have one yet. I'm hoping to get a 96/97 PI (Police Interceptor) in about 3/4 months.

I still have two 1997 PI's, great heavy duty highway cruisers..
I prefer the pre 98 models, lighter weight, and they have a
more streamline look. :)

I have bought and sold almost 1000 Crown Vic's. I drive a 1996 myself, it seems lighter and better handling (at least to me) than the 1998 and newer cars, also like the steering wheel and interior trim better than the 1995 cars.

I put over 130,000 total miles on my '95 PI and a '94 PI slicktop....and I couldn't let go of the little PI badge...so I bought one for my SHO.... :)

Thanks...I figured you gents would get a kick out of it. I almost bought a 1995 PI that my agency was selling...a fellow officer drove it. Same year that I had. Another officer totaled mine out 4 months after I turned it over to him. I went through heck and back with that car and loved it...only to see it piled up because a dog ran across the road in front of this officer. Too bad...

The PI badge reminds me though :)

What's the highest mileage anyone has seen on a late model crown vic? I've heard the drivetrain is bulletproof but would like to know from you.

High Mileage Question

Texas Man....I have read accounts of people achieving 200k and way beyond on the 92 plus model P71's....I have a 93 P71 with 103K on it now...There are no signs of any weakening at this point....My 88 P72 has 164K on it..Yes that's a 351w with a carb......I do plan to rebuild this motor due to major powerplant upgrades that are in the works....This is not due to any mechanical failings.....If you are really interested in CV's you might want to check out the www.crownvic.net website....They are very active over there.....This board will become so in time.....Allen

I have seen patrol units with over 250K on them, and they
were still going strong..

Thanks for the reply everyone. The highest I've heard on a vic is 750K on a 1993 taxi model in Cleveland Ohio. It began it's live as a Cleveland PD car, and then was sold to a local taxi company there. It's on the original engine and second transmission. I'm sure it's only a few more years before it flips over to one million miles. :G
