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)

2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2006 Ford Crown Victoria LX Sport. A more sport oriented
version of the body on frame V8 RWD car we've all become familiar with. It
can be thought of as similar styling of a modern impala SS from the 90s.
More closely related to Mercury's Marauder without the cobra V8. Dual Exhaust, air ride suspension with tuned
springs and a sport styled interior, quite the awesome combo for fans of
these legendary vehicles! During this presentation, we will take a 1st
person look at what the car is all about beginning with the start up,
performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build
quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and
exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get
from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight
key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available
options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the
good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE
CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will find in depth reviews/tour of
automobiles from all over the world, presented in a more detailed fashion
than ever before. Basically, this gives the viewer the chance to view the
most detailed 1st person look you can get without going to an actual dealer
yourself! Every video is consistent in the way I present so viewers know
