(Newser) – Bye-bye, Crown Vic: The last one rolled off a Ford assembly line in Canada yesterday, reports the Toronto Sun, bringing an end to a 32-year production line. No other North American car has had as long of a run, notes Justin Hyde at Jalopnik. The big car has been a staple for police departments and taxi companies, but it didn't mesh with Ford's future. The last one is destined for a buyer in Saudi Arabia.

"There's a lot that's sad about this," writes Hyde, "but for me, I think I'm most teary-eyed over the fact that when this four-door boat rolls onto the transport, destined for the far away Middle East, Ford's American dealers will be lacking a V8-powered sedan for the first time since 1932."
