RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 2001 Crown Vic

You may or may not be surprised to hear that this green c2001 Ford Crown Victoria (as well as the red one right behind it) was found in a used car lot just up the road apiece from Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas when we took this photograph back in 2012. There were a few more parked out of camera range. Was (is?) this style of car prevalent in Texas, or is it just something seen a lot around U.S. Army bases? In addition to many used car lots, other businesses in the neighborhood (to my recollection) were motels, tattoo parlors, check-cashing stores, and add-on auto accessory shops. Oh, and pawn shops (never a good sign). A lot of pocket money to be spent in an Army town, apparently.
