Ford Crown Vics, new info.
A lot of fire departments have Ford Crown Victorias
and I wanted to pass along some info. I got from a
friend in the California Highway Patrol (CHP)
As you may know, there have been several rear end
explosions involving the Ford Crown Vics. The CHP
is one of the biggest consumers of the police
vehicles and they get rear-ended weekly with no
explosions known to date.
WHY? The CHP modifys the factory delivered car once
it gets to the state. They shear off two pins near
the gas tank and add a protective plate. No incidents
known to date after this modifcation.
This is just word of mouth info. I highly suggest you
call or write the CHP automotive section if you want
more info. www.chp.ca.gov. We should be getting more
info. on this issue as it comes out. Thanks
Please dont lose sight...
My whole basis of this thread was the fact that the
CHP modifys their cars once received. AGAIN, they
but THE MOST Crown Vics out there and anyone else.
We are talking hundreds and hundreds just in storage.
SO, they have had NO explosions. NONE after getting
hit on a WEEKLY basis. I want to bang my head against
the wall because they are doing something that is
working while other citys, countys and states mull
over the issue...HELLO...wake up....we have a fix!
Thanks for reading...
