"The G8 won't survive under another brand."

"Yes it will."

"No it won't"

Apparently we're back to "Yes it will."

Good, it should survive.

Makes sense after Ford pulled the plug on the IRS V8 overhaul the Crown Vic was due to receive. Police depts were drooling over it till Ford axed it.

Maybe it'll yet make into non fleet production after all.

Project: 89 RS => AX/RR

Ford should of just overhauled the Vic.

Chevy might bring out an awesome police car, but the crown vic is awesome.

Crown vic is dead, has been for a year or so. Just the severely-overpriced Mercury and Lincoln versions still remain.

The Crown Vic would have been AWESOME if they put the Mustang V8(same size) and 5spd transmission in it.
A 224ish HP V8 in a large tank car is just pathetic. :\
