Chevy vs. Ford Cop-Car Thrash Battle! Roadkill Episode 12
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan are out to discover
which used cop car they like best, the Chevy Caprice 9C1 or the Ford Crown
Victoria Police Interceptor P71. Of course you expect nothing but the most
professional, scientific analysis from these guys, and that includes a day
doing donuts and bashing into stuff on pavement, tire explosions, a road
trip to the desert, camping, thrashing on dirt roads, and a finale that
just might create a new form of low-buck off-road motorsport.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

2004 Crown Victoria 1/4 mile run
Here's my 2004 Ford Crown Victoria. Current mods include: aluminum
driveshaft, 3.73 gears, full posi differential, Mercury Marauder airbox,
80mm MAF, '04 PI zip tube, ported and polished intake plenum and throttle
body, 91 octane tune. This is my 4th best run so far after a 15.07, 15.09,
'03 Crown Vic P71 0-60, Top Speed, and Brake Demonstration
PLEASE READ BEFORE COMMENTING: This is my 2003 Ford Police Interceptor. I
decided randomly to stop and make this video on my commute home. The road
is hilly and not perfectly smooth so it's not a great choice, but it's what
I got. The video is from a stop full throttle to a top speed (If you
listen closely at 130-132 MPH the engine cuts back due to the limiter). My
rear axle bearings are bad and getting replaced today so that hurts the
speed too. The brake check towards the end was a full ABS stop from 120
ish (5.5 seconds) to show there is no noticeable brake fade from the
brakes. The front brakes are nearly worn out Raybestos Police Pursuit
Brakes (I Highly recommend them) the rear brakes are stock. The car is
100% stock and the temp outside today was around 75 degrees and humid.
Beautiful Crown Victoria's Traded in Under the Cash For Clunkers Program in the Junk Yard
Here is a prime example of local goverment wasteful spending! I took a
video while I made a trip to the local salvage yard and found these
beauties! I only made a video of these 4 cars I saw, but I counted a total
of 12 of these Crown Victoria's with the Street Appearance Police Package.
All these Crown Vics were in great shape and would have easily fetched more
than $3000 at local auctions. Take a look at the 05 CVPI in the Video, this
car was mint and had less than 95,000 miles on it. These were all fresh in
the salvage yard, and all complete with engines and tranny's. These were
all traded in by the local goverment under the Texas Air Check Program,
which allows $3000 for each vehicle traded towards a new vehicle
replacement. This is a prime example of local wasteful goverment spending!
These vehicles could've made a family, or someone a perfectly good vehicle
for years to come. These Crown Vics are known to run 300,000 miles with the
