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.
'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.
2003 Crown Victoria 0-120
Half throttle chrip, followed by 0-120, followed by a 2nd gear 50-80 pull.

SUVs and pickups pose less risk to people in crashes
IIHS news release • September 28, 2011
Effort to make SUVs, pickups less deadly to car occupants in crashes is
ARLINGTON, VA - Today's SUVs and pickups pose far less risk to people in
cars and minivans than previous generations, a new study from the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety shows. Until recently, SUVs and pickups were
more likely than cars or minivans of the same weight to be involved in
crashes that killed occupants of other cars or minivans. That's no longer
the case for SUVs, and for pickups the higher risk is much less pronounced
than it had been.
