2005 Ford CVPI – Crown Vic

Click to see it larger.

I picked up this car to serve as my daily driver and backup family car.  It is an ex-CHP car but seems to have held up to it’s service well.  Over time I’ll probably clean it up a little bit more and perhaps make a few modifications to increase reliability, this is no sports car toy though.
