Default Last Crown Vic

I just read that the last Ford Crown Victoria rolled off the assembly line today at 12:25 pm. I know a lot of people don't care for them, but I kinda like the large body on frame V8 rear drive cars. What kinda annoyed me about the story is that some of the workers signed some of the inside body panels of this last car and instead of it being put in the ford museum or going to a collector its being to Saudi Arabia as a fleet car.

The problem with all of those are, i've looked at them, and they're too small. no rear leg room.

Well, no matter what you think of them.
Heres to the end of an era of full size, full frame, rear drive cars.

Sooo what's funny about this news?

Gonna miss that boat. Even if it was 20 years behind the times, they were uber reliable.

Never fear, euros love the rwds, they'll take over the market while ford premiers more outdated fwd cars.
