    I like the layout, plus they also allow for search by state... AND, have a section for security vehicles
    Now that is COOL. I had a 1/24 scale die-cast Chevy Impala custom made with a working light bar, wig-wag headlights and taillights. I had the hardest time finding a security car on-line to pattern it after. Too bad I didn't know about this site.

    Here's one that seems safer.

    It's funny that you should mention that. Thinking back over the years that is something Dodge has always made their cars to look fast. In the 60s I had a good deal on a Dodge Coranet auto trans(OH NO!! Automatic YEEK) and worst of all the little shifter was on the dash board. In the day of the Hurst floor shift. What a wiss mobile. It had a Hemi in it but that meant little to me. What's a Hemi anyway. The first day I had it I drove it like as if I was normal. Then the next day for kicks and giggles I decided to nail it and man when it shifted into the next gear it left rubber. This car was awesome. When word got out it went from dork to cool.

    These are 2 of the cars my sons dept picked up. He says that they go like a sore ape. 2006 Chargers. In Oklahoma they need the muscle cars on the vast highway system. I got a kick out of the Dial 911 on the rear. They must still be using rotary dial phones there

    Quoted for truth.

    Not that CVPIs are known for having awesome transmissions either, mind you... But the company I used to do patrol for used a fleet of the Impalas... Out of the 15ish they had, 3 of them needed new trannies around the 50k mile mark, JUST in the 1.5 years I worked there... And here they thought they were moving up in the world when they bought those to replace the 'aging' Luminas... LOL
    (From what the 'old timers' told me, the worst they had to replace on those were some shocks & struts... go figure)

    Chevy killed themselves with those Impalas. At least they have the problems ironed out. Ford will continue to make CVPI for as long as police buy em.

    In the Boston area I have seen some of the cities and town police using
    Impalas.
