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.

Police Car Drag Racing RaceLegal.com 5-20-2011
Watch as a san diego police department ford crown victoria police car code
4 racing drag races on the 1/8 mile racelegal.com track. watch as he beats
a pontiac gto, beats a bmw. The ford crown victoria is sure a well rounded
street car. you can drag race, run on the dirt or asphalt track even enter
a destruction derby. watch as the police car drag races a very fast Antonio
Loya 1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse RT .738 ET 7.213 @ 98.03 MPH
They even turn the lights and siren on the return lane.
The RaceLegal.com "Code 4 Racing Program" was conceived and operationalized
by San Diego Police Department officers Mark McCullough and Scott Thompson.
Modeled after the national "Beat The Heat, Inc." program, the pro-active
San Diego "Code 4 Racing Program" was designed to assist with re-directing
young people from participating in illegal street racing activity to the
fun, safer and sanctioned alternative of legal track racing. In addition,
the importance of "buckling up" and strictly adhering to "0 tolerance"
guidelines are also emphasized by the off-duty police officers.
The San Diego "Code 4 Racing Program" emphasizes the safety message of
"Cops and Racers". SDPD officers McCullough and Thompson are an important
component of all RaceLegal.com Qualcomm Stadium based 1/8 mile drag racing
events. This exciting non-traditional approach of having off-duty police
officers racing along side young drag race participants provides a unique
opportunity for interaction and relationship building. This setting gives
both the police officers and the young participants a forum to learn from
one another what potentially can make a difference for both groups within
Crown Vic Plays Catch Up At Over 100MPH
This is my 06 Ford Crown Victoria P71 playing catch up with a Dodge Neon
SRT4 and a Subaru WRX (on a closed track with lots of actors). It was
pretty fun but I don't hold a lot of trust in my tires as they are almost
due for replacement (no wear bars but damn close). The Vic seems to not be
blazing fast but just keeps pulling. I could have easily done 120 in a few
more seconds. Also, in the clip I say I let off at 105 but really it was
110 (just glanced and realized later). Enjoy!
Just How Tough Is A Ford Crown Victoria? Ford Tough!
It was a rainy day on March 12, 2013 where this 1995 Ford Crown Victoria LX
met its untimely end at approximately 7:30a.m. When changing lanes, the car
was side swiped by a large 2009 Chevrolet C5500 Duramax Diesel flat bed tow
truck. It was then forced back into the left lane and into the car that was
previously in front of it, a 2006 Mercury Milan. All parties involved
sustained little to no injury and walked away.
This was a major accident with extensive damage, involving several
vehicles. The car is totaled. With that said however, it is in surprisingly
good condition from a functional perspective. Functionally, three doors
will no longer open, and one power window, power lock, and power side
mirror won't work. All other aspects of the car remain unchanged from
After resetting the fuel inertia cutoff switch, the car was driven home on
the interstate between 55 and 70 MPH with no issues. It is absolutely
astonishing that even after suffering this much damage at the hands of a
large Diesel flat bed tow truck and then being hit yet again by another
vehicle, that the car runs and drives perfectly. The alignment isn't even
off. There are no warning lights illuminated, no fluid loss, and all
mechanical systems related to vehicle motion and control remain functional.
The Ford Crown Victoria is ONE TOUGH AUTOMOBILE that deserves even more of
my respect and admiration. The Chevrolet Caprice is also another vehicle
with similar design and safety characteristics that would likely have done
just as well in this accident scenario.
I am relatively uninjured save for some cuts, bruises, and muscle aches,
but otherwise in good health. I shudder to think how differently this may
have turned out in a smaller, less massive car. I'm sure I'd still be
alive, but likely would have sustained that much more injury let alone the
fact that a smaller car may likely have not been able to be driven away
from such an impact (and then driven again today).
I've always liked large powerful cars and after this incident, I like them
even more. Their only downside is fuel mileage. But then again, it's only
fuel (money). You can't take it with you. I'd much rather drive a large,
safe car than a smaller fuel efficient car. All it takes is one accident.
The resulting medical bills from a less substantial and massive vehicle
will far exceed any fuel savings by a wide margin (if you survive such an
encounter at all). Driving is always a risk. Stack the odds in your favor
and try to choose a larger vehicle the next time you're in the market for a
new car. (3/16/2013)
CROWN VIC HITTIN SWITCHES...2010
This is my 2001 Ford Crown Victoria police interceptor. It took me three
years to build this car to this point. Everything on this car is custom. It
has a ten switch air ride system, in other words its "bagged". it has labo
doors on the front. All door handles have been shaved and the doors now
open by remote. The grill and lights are all custom, as well as the
marauder black paint job. It has a compustar alarm coneected to a Nathan
Airchime train horn. The windows have been limo tinted and the interior has
all be replaced. This car was built for shows.
Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.
