The clock seems to be ticking for many national and local police department's Ford Crown Victoria cruiser fleets.

Now that the long-promised final year of production for the iconic police fleet has arrived, at least 100 are under contract to come to area police departments as they hope to get their final fix in before the game changes.

The Post and Courier has a nice report on the move; read it here.

You can get a detailed look back at what made the Crown Vic line so impressive over at Wikipedia, and read about Ford's next-gen cruiser on their website page.
