    there is a ton of chargers around here :dunno:

    i always get nervous when a charger is behind me, because most of them around here are unmarked

    i prefer the crown vics as police cars because 99% of the time when i see one it is a cop

    It's true. The new Taurus with twin turbos and AWD is a 4,400lb car with one person in it.

    And that's BEFORE you load down the trunk with extra equipment and supplies, install the cage, radios, lights, computer, and the extra 50lbs. of fat fuck cop and his coffee/donuts (meaning 50 lbs. above and beyond the weight of a normal person).

    Chevy just keeps looking better and better :mamoru:
     
  15. so the caprice is just a g8 with chevy badging right? any indication they are gonna have a civilian version? Or am I gonna need to wait and buy one at auction?

    Charger is still the scariest mofo on the block.

    Even more scary because they black them out undercover style here. :eek3:

    I'd rather see all of the police cruisers as Crown Vics. The Charger is the best looking of this bunch, but they're a pain in the ass because they blend in so well... kinda.
