I want to set a challenge because I have never seen it done, and that is all the more reason to do it. Take an old Vic cop car and tub it out, and put whatever engine you have to put in there, one of those budget turbo V8' heck I don't even care if it's that turbo Hemi. You're going to already make a bunch of people angry, by messing with a Vic might as well really make them angry. Take it to the drags and launch the front wheels off the ground!! I am not sure what kind of horse power you would need to do it, I am sure it is something ludicrous but it would be a sight to see!

THANK YOU John McGann!! Great articles on building up your Crown Vic cop car! As an owner of a 2003 Marauder and a 2007 Vic cop car, your articles will come in very handy, as my Marauder and cop car suspensions are getting loose. Thanks for your honest opinions and observations. Regards, GregDecember 23rd,2011

Crown Vics, since the 80's, have been cars dying to be souped up and street raced. I find that your desire to make an old cop cruiser into a hot rod is more in keeping with the name of your magazine than articles about folks who let others do all the work on their rides. I can't remember if it was Car Craft or Hot rod who had a car where the owner said ...I'm not a gearhead, I just drive 'em. That comment boiled my blood, the most fun I ever had with old cars was telling everyone that I did all the work myself. Wish I had the money to get something going.
