1965 Ford Police Car

1965 Ford Ranch Wagon

Last year Ford sold around 20,000 vehicles to law-enforcement agencies. While the number may seem huge, it’s dwarfed by many of Ford’s retail models. The Ford Escape small crossover, for example, accounts for nearly 30,000 sales every month.

Explorer GMC Savannah Coversion

This Explorer conversion of a Chevrolet Express Van is painted in the company’s “Southern Comfort” livery and includes the “Antelope” ground-effects package.

Blame the minivan. Prior to the 1984 arrival of the first minivans–the ground-breaking Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager–the vehicle options for a family of six were fairly limited.

Lincoln MKT by Parks Superior

Lincoln MKT Hearse

For years, Cadillac had a death grip on the funeral-vehicle market. While statistics are elusive, it’s safe to say that through the most of the Nineties, Caddy was the dominant player in the last-ride game.

1984 Plymouth Horizon

Perhaps surprisingly, the Plymouth Horizon was the eighth-fastest accelerating car tested by Consumer Guide in 1984.

We’ve been using the word fastest to describe the best-performing rides tested by Consumer Guide in the past. The word we really should be using is quickest. Technically, a fast car has an impressive top speed, and without a test track, and situated in the Chicago suburbs, top speed was never a metric CG attempted to measure.

New York Auto ShowIt’s just a concept for now, but this “4-door coupe” seems a logical addition to the existing Mercedes-AMG GT 2-door Coupe.
