The Back of a Brand-New SFPD Police Car Doesn’t Look Too Comfy – Economy-Class Legroom – Hard Plastic SeatsThursday, August 6th, 2015
Is there a Ford in your Future?
Let’s hope it’s not this one:
And check out the other Ford in the background – it matches the cable car you can see.
Anyway, it’s dangerous to park anywhere near a port-a-potty these days.
If this were my ride, I’d have somebody tow it somewhere fast – you don’t want Auto Return to get their hooks on it, that’s for sure…
It’s hard to be a baller when ppl think your ride is a stripper Ford.
Jag up front, doppelganger in the rear*
I’ll tell you, in my day, Jaguars looked like Jaguars.
And that was the way we liked it.
I don’t think this SFPD Ford Crown Victoria will be with us much longer:
The funny thing is that I’ve been seeing a lot of civilianized former police cars on the streets of San Francisco and I can’t tell them from the merely out-of-service SFPD rides.
Anyway, all of the SFPD’s Crown Vics are not long for this world – they’re not going to get driven for decades the way some SFGov trucks are. No no, iconic Crown Vics, both the 80’s-style origami kind and the swoopier 90’s-style rounded kind, will soon be gone.
Last time I drove one was when Hertz gave me a “free” “upgrade” to a “premium” rent-a-car. It cost me more on gas, but you can’t say a Crown Vic is uncomfortable* to drive – it’s a barcalounger on wheels.
Soon enough, all our CV’s will be OOS.
*Unlike, say, the Toyota Camry “CE” stripper I rented one time. Yish.

At first glance, the “wrap” on this Golden Gate Park shuttle van allowed it to blend in with all the nearby Victorians. Imagine my surprise when I noticed it moving!
I was like, “AHAHAHAHA … remarkable!“
Boy, you got me good, RPD.
