    We had 1978 Plymouth Furys with 400 V-8's when I started driving. Then we switched to Plymouth Volare's with 383 V-8's in 1980. Then they went temporarily insane and put us in 1982 Reliants with 4 cylinder engines. Yech! At least our current impalas have V-6's!
    The picture is me in the spring of 1981 with a 1980 Volare.
    You look like good ole' JD "Buck "Savage

    (That's what we called it when I worked there in the mid nineties. At least the folks I worked with.)

    We also added an '05 Nissan Frontier extended cab. Nice little truck. Roomier than I thought...and it has enough spaces to store my FAK, extra gear, reports and everything in the nifty little widget pockets...

    Thanks. And, yes, something like that. We provide critical infrastructure protection for the municipal water supply (which is a regional service), so, we work a large area and I'm usually patrolling areas outside of the city. --K.

    Pick up trucks are used because they're "small" and therefore "fuel efficient."

    There are a few companies in So. Cal. that provide mounted patrol services. I worked for one a few years back, so I drove my horse at work. I worked for an HOA and had a partner who was also mounted. Great gig.

    Where I work now we use Ford F150 and F250 4x4s with a lift. Company markings, standard lightbar, radio and siren console, rifle rack, and a box mounted in the bed with first aid stuff, pepperball, and safety stuff. The trucks are constantly replaced so they are all mostly new.
