      I like those graphics!

      -It's just a job kid deal with it

      -The industry needs to do one of two things; stop fiddling with the thin line and go forward or go back to that way it was. A flashlight in one hand and your set of keys in the other

        Pickups are small? I drive an F-150 for patrol...not quite small when you look at CVPI and Impala...

            Previously, I've been assigned F-150's and F-250's. I've been downsized.... But, truth be told? The CHEVY Colorado isn't a bad duty rig. --K.

                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.

                • 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...

                    When I started patrol in 1979, our squads had nice simple markings, with "Midwest Patrol" on the fenders and trunk lid, and our beloved "buzzard" on the doors.
                    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.

                              I believe there is a photo of the impala floating around somewhere on the forums.

                              • I believe I posted picture of the Impala and our Dodge pickup on this thread. You might have to look back a ways though.
