Default What is the oldest vehicle still in service with your agency?

My father works for the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office and the oldest vehicles that I saw in their lot when I was there 2 months ago that still had the white and blue (their old colors, they are switching to something more modern, a black and white-ish blend) were a 2nd Generation Ford Explorer and I swear I saw a Bronco somewhere in their garage too...

What's the oldest vehicle sitting in your fleet that's still in service? Waiting for one more call or on the way to decommissioning soon?

Most of the patrol units at our agencies around here go 120,000 to 140,000 miles before they are pulled from service. One of the adminstration cars was pulled from service a few years ago at over 200,000 miles on it.

Could be that at the sheriff's department a lot of the miles are highway type miles and they hold up better than stop and go miles.

Since I've been retired for 10yrs., I'll have to leave that to the deputies still working, but as to the above; when I was in patrol, 95K miles was just broken in. They were driven until they died and then parted to keep the others running. These were the Caprices I'm referring to.

Oldest car in our fleet is I believe a 1998 Ford Taurus. Approx. 75K miles on it. It won't be going anywhere very soon. It's a small department so only a few vehicles get used regularly, and this one is not one of them.

I think we have a 99 crown Vic that's pushing 150xxx miles. Not sure.

We have mostly 07-2012 crown Vic's now. With an avg of 50k miles. The newest one has I believe 20k miles on it. The sgt drives the new Taurus we just acquired. Has less that 500 miles on it and is to be only operated by the sgt or LT.

No until recently, my Departments oldest vehicle was a Sikorsky H-34 helicopter (Air 5)(Circa 1970).

I drove an unmarked Crown Victoria last month. It had over 175,000 miles on it. It was a great condition. I don't know what year model it was, but it was sure better than a Chevy Blazer that they assigned to my office. The blazer had only 116,000 + miles, and it is a piece of @#%$^&*.

Considering that CVPIs have been out of production for a couple of years now, what's your plan for them?

Are you going to rotate them out after a certain amount of miles like you usually do? Or are you going to hang on to these cars like they are your left nut and only replace them if they get totaled or if the engine blows?
