one of my brothers has said this to me several times and I doubted him, but Motor Trend in it's Future Forecast section of their website says that Ford may be coming out with a replacement for the Crown Vic in 2006. Now every other online source I have checked has nothing on this, but click the link to see for yourself. If anyone can confirm this please let me know. If anyone knows this to be factually wrong, let me know and we can email motortrend.
Now I don't consider Motortrend to be an authority on anything, in fact since the editor took over, they've slipped from my favor. I still prefer AutoWeek and Car&Driver. But MotorTrend is still way better than Automobile and Road&Track. Those two I wouldn't wipe my rear with.
