If you’re like me, every time I see something like this 1992 Ford Crown Victoria I always assume it started life as an unmarked police car (especially with that little trunk-mounted antenna). Some of the more decrepit-looking ones also have the possibility of being retired taxi cabs. I refer to this era of Crown Vics as Ford’s “car insurance clip art car” styling phase. Something the brochure describes as “One-piece limousine doors” supposedly “…allow more precise fit and finish, which creates a better barrier against wind noise and water.” Ford assumes that readers know what limousine doors are, as they never explain the concept; for want of a better description, I believe it means that the door openings continue on up into the roof for easier entry and exit. Saw this one earlier this year in Tonawanda.
