I so far have not been able to track down Ithaca's new Caprice, but I did get a shot of their current Impala, as well as a 'retired' Gratiot County Ford.

This is an older car- the current Gratiot county cars are solid black.

The Ithaca cars were blue for a while, but they now run black Impalas, as it seems that the blue ones went for way less money at auction when they were taken out of service.

Question- do the police Impalas come without front hubcaps? I ask because this and the other two Ithaca cars have hubcaps on the rear wheels only.

Perhaps so they can have faster pit stops? :lol:


Seriously, all the police Impalas around here have a full complement of hubcaps.

Kind of what I thought. :lol:
Funny- stopped at the Ithaca post again today, and nobody knows where the new Caprice is. Even though every other police agency in the county knows about it- it's the only Caprice in Gratiot County. :huh:
Anyway- managed to get a few more...

Ithaca's new Caprice- suprised I haven't seen a diecast of this to go with the Taurus Interceptor yet.
