Whoa, those babies came loaded with pre-beat beatnicks!

Don't ask about the rocker panels.

FTFA: But that terror probably would've been about a thousand times worse had this police car of the future from 1958 ever become a reality.

Well, imagine Officer Cleatus in charge of one.
Actually, these would be hilarious in car chases. Think of a runaway methhead gangbanger being chased by five of those.

If they were invisaging flying cars, why wouldn't the cops have a flying car? Anyway, needs bigger tail fins and more chrome.

And it's got the dead raccoon of the future smeared across the bumper.

Looks like the middle ground between a lifeguard perch and the 2-seater patrol ships around Cloud City.

Yep, stick a straw up the tailpipe and blow. The tyranny of the practical.

An old cop told me the LT1 Caprice was the greatest vehicle ever designed by man. It's been downhill ever since.

That rat circus out there, I'm beginning to enjoy it. Any longer out there on that road and I'm one of them.
