Chicago turbocharges its police force


When it comes to iconic police cars, few in the history of the automobile rival the beloved Ford Crown Victoria, cherished by police departments everywhere for its comfort, versatility and indestructible reputation.

Department mechanics loved the cars, too, since spare parts were both cheap and ubiquitous, thanks to the Panther platform's popularity among taxi fleets and car services, too.
