    it will be sold to police and not the public at large.

    but, it also means in a few years times, there will be swarms of used Commodores on the market for basement bargain prices with 6.0L engines

    thats whats exciting

    even better, it will probably have all holden bodywork :eek3:

    i still think the car is too good for a police car, police want shitters with live rear axles.

    They also want comfortable cars. The G8 is much better than the Jurassic-era Crown Vic.

    It's got a cop motor, a 440-cubic-inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters, so it'll run good on regular gas.

    Normally I would say this is what "makes a police car a police car"
    V8, Rear Wheel Drive, Four Doors, Lots of interior room, Lots of trunk room, Column Shifter, Body-on-frame.
