I'n not a big fan of modern cars, but that's one I would like to build! I really like the intimidating looks, it has "I gonna get ya" written all over it. First one I saw was an Oklahoma Highway Patrol cruiser, and it was almost scary to see it in the rear view mirror... like an angry animal or something. :rolleyes:

Wasn't the character Baricade in recent Transformers one of these cars? It would be cool to build a replica of him.

EEEYYYOOOWWWW, Bob! UNMARKED Police cars are ILLEGAL in Georgia???!!!??? Yeeesh, Now there's a law I could live with! Around here, Our Allen Park Cops have Crown Vic's that are gloss black, with all the Police markings in a wierd reflective FLAT BLACK. So even though it LOOKS like an unmarked car, it isn't! An they ALL light up like that spaceship in "Close Encounters,,,,," Yeeesh! :)



George,
What Bob didn't say is the fact that many of the "marked" cars now have darned nearly undetectable markings; ie, Dark blue cars with
a barely lighter shade blue lettering, dark grey letters on a black car etc...
Will scare the stuff outta you when you realize there around!!!

The slicktop seems to be what they're driving, at least those are what I've seen the most of...

Thanks Dave !!!

Your photos are always great, I have searched your Fotki albums on many occasions.

It's interesting, I've seen photos of about a dozen different CHP slicktop Chargers and this is the first one that I noticed where the paint appears to be Black Metallic instead of pure black. The Florida Highway Patrol Cars appear to be the same way.

There's a Flickr Photo Group dedicated to the Charger Police cars with over 400 photos that have been very helpful to me including more of the CHP cars.

Dodge Charger Police Cars

Also, here's the link to Dave's Fotki photo sharing site. If you've never checked it out your missing a lot !!!

Ooooooooooooooh!!! That is gonna be great!! NJSP doesn't have any of these in livery service yet. But, we do have some super sneaky unmarked ones with the hubcaps and SXT badging!! No tint, no aerials!! Just the wigwags in the head and tails! Are they doing Philadelphia precinct decals too, or just the highway patrol? Thanks for the great info you've shared so far!! Howbout maybe some parts pack/decal sets? ;);)


Haha, when my little sister bought her 3.5l/Touring suspension equiped Charger SE last fall, Dad when to the dealer's web site so I could see that car and the first thing that came to mind is that it looked like an un-marked police car. We don't have very many Chargers around me as cruisers, mainly CV's and Explorers.

Here's my Sister's car for comparison :D

That's what I think every time I see my sister's from the front, or get one like her's behind me in traffic. IIRC that snarely look wasn't by accident though, probably did it to make up for the excessive number of doors :rolleyes:

May have to ask DWC 43 when his computer is back from the dead, he'll probably know the answer to that when it comes to the real ones :rolleyes:

I'm still waiting for an update myself. Last official word was they working on couple of minor issues but that was several months ago. I'll keep on asking until I get an answer.

The pre-painted kit is a metal body kit that has been out for quite some time now.

The plastic kit is what we are waiting on.

Death, taxes, and major delays from Testors... three things you can count on in life.

Shut up no they aren't... :D

O.K. so maybe they are, but until I have one in my hands, and/or see one in someone elses hands here on the board I refuse to believe this myth, this legend is finally coming to fruition.

Wonder if this means I have to cover my pre-order on the case of Blank white ones... :D
