    they sold more Crown Vic models to the public (excluding fleet sales) in 2007 than they did the Ford Taurus (rebadged Five Hundred)?

    if you want to hear something really scary, the Mercury Grand Marquis outsold the Crown Vic if you exclude fleet sales.

    They need to keep making the Crown Vic. The tooling is all paid for, so the cars are pure profit, and they sell a metric shit ton of them to police departments.

    Not in the least. The current model has been in production for such a long time the production costs are very very low. They make a huge profit of every one.

    America doesn't really like hatchbacks. The Falcon would do better IMHO.

    well its a RWD platform currently. I think its already been determined that the turbo straight six is going away. Oz is supposed to be getting some turbo V6 from the states though and of course they already have the mod motors.

    you don't think PD departments want the latest and greatest. the R/T CHargers they sell to PDs run circles around Crown vics
