The Ford Crown Victoria, or more commonly nicknamed the Crown Vic, is the car that you either now as the Police Interceptor, or the car that everyone in Saudi Arabia seems to own. Rear wheel drive and as bland as they come, it was first produced by Ford in the Mid 50′s. As it stands today, it’s amazingly unchanged from the day it rolled off the line in 1992 – Which must be a record for a modern day production car?

Still selling by the bucket load and still as plain jain as a bowl full of Vanilla ice cream. However, take an old Crown Vic and throw the “Air fixes all” mentality at it… and it is partly cool.  In fact cool enough that you are half thinking you wouldn’t mind a go.. right!

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
