Style opinions. Police Cars.

Should a PC be white with logos, aka the Taxi Cab look or should it be the classic B&W. I know the B&W look is usually decals on the roof and doors with the logos and messages pre printed. Hey, makes de-miling easier, just spray on a little Solv-a-set TM and peal off the markings.

I always thought the White car was the best, as every white car of the police type, Fords now days, but Chevy Impalas are making a comeback, makes the "guilty flee where no officer pursuith."

Geoff
Who understands the Classic B&W gives us the British "Panda Car."

I believe at least (5) of these vehicles were conscifated and re-worked from narcotic seizure investigations. More departments should take this into consideration.

The Richland County Sheriff's Dept. has 14 Dodge Magnum station wagons. Paint scheme is black/gray with white lettering. Very cool. Lexington County is getting some of the new Dodge Chargers, also pretty cool. I've seen at least one SCHP Beemer.

Has anyone noticed that the grilles of a lot of the newer Chrysler/Dodge vehicles are very similar in appearance to the grille of the newer Bentleys?

I want to see a police McLaren F1! (They will be ticketing airplanes for flying too low.)

Ahhhhhh, the cars in those pictures are nice, but where's the old Black and White of my yoot? Simpler times, more "policier" (policier? ) looking cars.

Here are two out-takes from a shoot I was an assistant on a couple/few years ago. We spent a long weekend getting to know this girl. She's in a class all her own. (Used with permission.)

Didn't the CHiPs use souped-up Camaros as highway interceptors back in the '80s?

Ooh, there's a "police custom" idea: a black Trans Am with a blue lightbar in the nose.

Yes they did. Quite a few states/departments still run 2002 Camaros as interceptor cars.

  • Texas' Highway Patrol used both Camaros and Mustang GTs for a short while. They found the Camaros unsafe at speed.

I can personally attest to the use of Camaros by the Indiana State Police as recently as 2002.

Plymouth Furys! Hemis under the hood, air cleaner lid flipped, dual Federal 14s on the roof, an Ithaca in front of the dash and a Motorola under the dash...those were the days. Boats, but if you crashed, you knew you'd make it through both sides of whatever you hit.

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.

Jim Reed: Yes sir. You want me to drive?
