Ford's last Crown Victoria rolls off the line

Oh no! What will the bedoos drive now if they discontinue the Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis?

Ford's last Crown Victoria rolls off the line - Sep. 15, 2011:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) --

The last Ford Crown Victoria rolled off a Canadian assembly line Thursday, marking the end of the big, heavy Ford cars that have been popular with taxi fleets and police departments for decades.

Since 1979, almost 10 million Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Cars -- so-called Panther Platform vehicles -- have been sold.

Demand for better fuel economy and performance has choked off sales over the years. The Crown Victoria and Town Car get just 24 miles per gallon on the highway, a figure matched by some large three-row SUVs today.

Maybe they will still have a small plant somewhere making the cars for the Middle East. Maybe I should buy one now and sell it later at a higher price. Hmm.....
