    The California Highway Patrol used to auction off their used cruisers with all the police markings removed but no other work done - holes where antennae used to be, an empty spotlight where the big red bunlb was - etc. A little old lady in the town of Palmdale bought one, and caused a flood of near-heart attacks as she sauntered to the various stores at a speedy 20mph.

    So did LAPD...

    ... ever see an AMC Matador cop car with the 401?
    No, but I can just well imagine.... <g>

    The one I would have given almost anything to get my hands on was the mid-70s Olds 455 CHiP cruiser....

    Those have been borrowed so often that it's hard to know who "owns" them anymore.

    Those marketeers must continually do something to justify their obscene salaries. One cute ploy is to dream up variations on model names.

    That job is getting harder and harder... all the really good names are taken (or copyrighted)!

    I like this form of transportation, but I am puzzled how this post has gotten so much play. All of you Camry, Accord and Taurus owners: This is a better car and every bit as dull and lame. You can't stop middle-class people they have to fit and don't want to stand out. Where is all the chatter for the new Toyota? Partner in Crime? Toyota hired a US ad agency and they need to consider another one. Ford is losing the battle and I blame the Eddie Bauer Explorers and that horrible Expedition. Guess who was cussing who when gas went to $3.25/gal. What does an Expedition do the 0-60 in? I also blame that Titan! It is a great truck - made right here in America for those who are paying attention.

    Oh you did not want to buy and American truck - I feel your pain. That POS Tundra is built in OHIO! V striketh with Venom!
