2xhelix: I actually got to ride in one of these, with siren blaring and light flashing.  Godfather was a cop and drove me home from church after my first communion in one.  I was the coolest kid in the neighborhood that day.

Got a ride in one similar to the second car in the picture. Back seat isn't nearly as comfortable as I'd have expected in a car that size. No door handles either, obviously quality was slipping.

phlegmmo: It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas.

"Regular gas"? Wow, Grandpa, tell us more about when you were a kid and motor fuel was chock full of poisonous heavy metals!

No, I was quoting The Blues Brothers.


The BLUES BROTHERS?

They still owe you money, Fool!

praymantis: You don't need a V8 that gets 13 MPG for that there are plenty of 4 cylinder cars that can do that, things like turbo. It is evident that for sometime you can use a smaller engine and still get the performance when you need it. In addition 99.9% of the time when the lights are flashing people pull over.


My V6 Nissan gets 24mpg and will outrun your choice of current cop cars with considerable ease.

Because I need fresh donuts stat as well!

I was expecting some overdone exotic with an anti-drug message on the side.

But this... this is awesome.

My favorite old cop car is the Galaxie Police Interceptor:

Pete Malloy: You know what this is?

Jim Reed: Yes sir, it's a police car.

Pete Malloy: This black and white patrol car has an overhead valve V8 engine. It develops 325 horsepower at 4800 RPM's. It accelerates from 0 to 60 in seven seconds; it has a top speed of 120 miles an hour. It's equipped with a multi channeled DFE radio and an electronic siren capable of admitting three variables, wale, yelp, and alert. It also serves as an outside radio speaker and public address system. The automobile has two shotgun racks, one attached to the bottom portion of the front seat, one in the vehicle trunk. Attached to the middle of the dash, illuminated by a single bulb is a hot sheet desk. Fastened to which you will always make sure is the latest one off the teletype before you ever roll.

Jim Reed: Yes sir.

Pete Malloy: It's your life insurance and mine. You take care of it and it'll take care of you.
