The Crown Vic's didn't have disc rear brakes, so that would explain the
weird pedal travel, well that and possibly any adjustmen in the rod between
the pedal and the master cylinder ... I'd take a look at the 84-86 SVO
master cylinder, as its designed for 4whl discs... or possibly one for the
Continental, as its also for 4whl discs and a heavy vehicle ...

How did you control your self is such a situation. Your License plate
was scratched. I mean we are talking your license plate. Does that lady
in the Caravan know what it is going to entail to replace a license plate
of that vintage? What was she thinking. The real problem comes in if you
state uses a completely different plate design. You might not be able to
get a rear plate that matches the front. You will be stuck getting a new
plate for the front unnecessarily causing you more undue stress and time in
the shop. I hope her insurance is up for a fight..... Caravan parts are a
dime a dozen but a good solid vintage license plate is a rare find.
Justice must be served! Please keep us posted.

(Note : for those of you out there who might not realize it this is
actually a joke intended for your amusement but also might be a good
subject for a tech article. "How to do a License plate update" or " How to
get a Caravan off your &$$")
