CC Outtake: Those Happy Golden Years

What is there to say about seeing a pride of Panthers?  Well, they are diminishing in numbers.  And they tend to congregate; we all know these Crown Vics tended to have a certain herd mentality their last decade or two.

One could think of this as a retirement community for old Ford branded Panther platform cars.  Lots of folks have side jobs in their semi-retirement, so why not a Crown Victoria?

If I counted right, there’s eighteen of them here.  Being taxi cabs near an army base that is home to nearly 40,000 personnel and is also known for training new recruits, there’s no telling what sorts of stories these Fords are keeping to themselves.

Found July 2020 in St. Robert, Missouri, one-half mile from the front gate of Ft. Leonard Wood.
