      I am thinking it said "seized from a drug dealer" and not "seized by a drug dealer", unless that dealer really wanted people to know he was in the area.

      No, they didn't. They got two of them donated by Lamborghinin back in 2004, and those cars stuck around for over a hundred thousand miles each. In 2008, they got two more from Lamborghini. In 2009, a car swerved into one of the older ones causing it to hit a row of parked cars, totalling it. So, one out of the 4 total gallardos that Lamborghini donated to the police force got totalled by someone else a YEAR after the last one was delivered.

      Youre referring to the hoax email that's been circulating again.
      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 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.
      A known "hiveminder".

      You can't beat Michigan for the most LOL-worthy of all police car setups ... their Smokey and the Bandit style gumdrops are just too funny to look at in person.

      I wouldn't say a v6 Mustang is cool per say, but I'm sure it's somewhat uncommon.

      V6 Mustang, the Impala to the right dates it as a bit of an older car. The beauty rings and no caps give it a meaner cop car look. I guess traffic enforcement does not need that powerful of an engine as I recall they had about 140 HP at that time or a big back seat for hauling away criminals so, not really a bad choice at all. Could it of been a seized car or? Interesting post.
