A local suburb of Dayton, Ohio used to run mid-80's Volvos, in the mid-80's of course. Dad got a ticket on I-75 in Kentucky after blowing by a Statie in the middle lane in a 5.0 Fox-body ~ 1990. He let dad pop the hood and check it out for a bit too. Yes, he still got a ticket. Statie said he respected dad's gearheadedness, but 83 in a 55 was a bit too much.

I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.
A month ago I was sitting at a red light when somebody ran a late yellow, and one of these exploded with interior lights and took off from the left turn lane, siren screaming. Totally stealth--I had no idea they made pursuit mom cars:
And since we're talking about strange police cars...
Why in the hell does OHP need a boat like this.. there might be 2% of all of Oklahoma where this would be usable and I'm pretty sure those areas are NOT highways.

I'm kinda baffled that there doesn't seem to be that much about regulated colors or anything.
If i'd see a green car with cartoons on it, trying to get me pull over, I'd probably think there's some drug-crazed maniac trying to kill me
and "Canine" would probably be more explanatory universally than K-9
"-Hmm, caution K9, wonder what's behind this door.." and boom, there's a german sheperd ripping your face off
I'm sure these will become more common in the coming year, but right now they aren't very common and are definitely cool...AND I get to drive them before police departments do (These were taken with my iPhone)
They are FAST too. 6.0L LSx based motor, RWD.
