Hoarders, police edition

Raise your hand if you've ever found out something you really like is being discontinued, and proceeded to buy a little extra just in case. That's exactly what's going on with the Austin, Texas police department, which has just copped together a special budget to stock up on five years' worth of Ford Crown Victoria police vehicles. Why? It's the end of the line for the Crown Victoria (Ford has already put the assembly plant on the block for sale), and the Police department would rather stick with tried and tested cars, letting other police departments discover the strengths and weaknesses of newer models. Old habits die hard.
