I saw this while driving my '97 Mercury Grand Marquis, which is basically the same vehicle as a Crown Vic. Hey, it's a V8!

This old dude didn't mess around. Sweet mountain bike strapped to the back of his Ford Crown Victoria. His dogs and skull cow bell keep him company. Not only did he go up, but he went down the back side and tried (but failed) to go up the back side!

UPDATE 2016.09.28: After more active years and views than I ever realized I'd get, I finally went back and uploaded the full SD resolution version of this video (this was only 320x240 way back in '07 so I could upload over my slow connection!). Please check out the new upload: "So, just how well DOES a 4-passenger Mercury Grand Marquis handle?" you ask. Well, have a look at this video from Barber Motorsports Park and see for yourself!

Ford recalls Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis, Town Car models due to corrosion issue
A mysterious case of police officers losing control of their squad cars has been solved, leading to the recall of 370,000 Ford Crown Victorias -- including the Police Interceptor version -- Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Cars. The National Highway Safety Traffic Administration started looking into the problem a year ago after learning of cases of the steering going out on certain types of police cars. Part of the probe included a field inspection of vehicles in the Montgomery County, Md., police fleet garage near the agency's headquarters. The recall includes all Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Town Car vehicles from the 2005 through 2011 model years, not just the Police Interceptors. It affects cars registered or originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Severe corrosion can seize the lower intermediate shaft in the steering system of these vehicles, the agency said. That can cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and the steering column lower bearing to separate. The car will then lose the ability to steer, risking a crash. Ford that that many drivers of cars with the problem will first observe a change in feel, with the steering becoming notchy, stiff and binding. Most affected drivers have taken their cars to the dealer to have the problem checked out prior to any loss of steering function, the automaker said. Customers located in other states who routinely operate their vehicles in one of these areas, or customers who have concerns regarding their steering, will also be able to have their vehicles inspected and repaired if necessary. Ford said it is not aware of any reported accidents or injuries related to this problem.
