      Northern VA still runs a lot of vics, but I've seen a handful of chargers and a few mustangs. I know somewhere around here there are some passats, can't remember the city. Also, I heard somewhere that Texas has vipers.

      I saw a fully old-person ready Grand Marquis blasting down the road in Fairfax with hidden lights flashing. There's also a black F-2/350 with a windowed bed cover roaming around.

      Anyone used to watch the show "Speeders" on TruTV? One of the officers used to drive around in a yellow Hummer H2.

      And these



      There's also Chevy Volts driving around. Did a double-take the first time I saw it and I've never seen a private one in person.



      And of course the usual Crown Vics, Fusions, Explorers, Expeditions, F150's, E150's, Impalas, Suburbans, Chargers, Altimas, etc.

      Medford, MA used to have a formerly drug-dealer-owned C4 Corvette all done up with D.A.R.E. livery, and lighting.

      Rumor was they parked it across the street from the jail the day he was released...

      Mustang GTs are common but we have a couple that have been tuned by these guys:

      I'll need to take some pics from Hawaii. Very few crown vics. Only the noobs use them

      After a few years, police officers get a car of their chice that meet some general criteria, and get a maintenance budget, etc. They say it's cheaper than having a large car fleet...?

      Lots of Mustangs, Chargers, a Challenger, Infiniti (mostly older G35), Accord, and a variety of SUVs (Pathfinders, Xterra, Pilot, Highlander).

      They receive a large blue top-light that is always illuminated, then hidden light bars in the grill and inside in the windshield and back window.

      A lot of the cars posted are not unusual but come from other countries, where they're quite normal.

      Growing up in the late 70's-early 80's in a tiny town with a part time police force their squad car was a silver Rabbit Diesel with a blue light bar. 0-60 in... what? 25 seconds?

      Our Boss Hog sized police chief barely fit behind the wheel.

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.
