  1. Favorite police procedural/crime dramas

    NYPD Blue had some good moments. Police Story was a favorite of mine from back in the day. G
  2. Joker goon car into Detroit PD Fury

    Oh that is nice. G
  3. 1978 Chevy Nova 4dr POLICE

    Now that looks about perfect. Our Fleet Services had a porter who believed Armorall was invented just for police cars. When he Armoralled one of those plain vinyl bench seats, it was like driving while sitting on a Slip n Slide. G
  4. 1978 Chevy Nova 4dr POLICE

    Nothing sinister, just showing a reference. G
  5. 1978 Chevy Nova 4dr POLICE

    PO ED Atherton, District 9, circa 1977. Notice the cloth interior.
  6. Favorite police procedural/crime dramas

    Did you ever stop and think that we really don't care about any "official list" ? G

    and there it is, from the source. G
  8. Favorite police procedural/crime dramas

    Well compared to everything else on the boob tube nowadays, Barney Miller surpasses them all as a crime drama/police procedural. Even the "live" shows are edited to hell and back for content. If you have a basic understanding of the law enforcement profession, you'd know that the job is essentially 8 hours of boredom interrupted by seconds of sheer terror. Detective work is BORING. I have been assigned to various bureaus and while I loved every minute of it, it was basically mundane day to day foot slogging. As far as Barney Miller is concerned in all this, you actually have to watch it, pay attention and understand what is taking place. The comedy is a by product of the interaction of the characters during their crime fighting activities. This taking place in a big city, within an old building. The personalities involved are quite accurate and reflect the diversity found in a large department. I have had some funny stuff happen in my nearly 39 years on the job. I'm gone from "the Lou" 11 years as of today. I miss the people, but not the place. That said I'd go back in a heartbeat for the right salary. So to summarize. While billed as a sitcom, it is still the best depiction of what real police detectives deal with in their day to day activities. I'd call the "procedural" any day. G
  9. Rereleased Chevy Impala SS

    My '93 had a 60/40 split bench, the '94 and '95 had buckets. The few marked '91's I drove, I was a detective then, had 60/40 benches. The '93 had carpet, a fabric front seat, power windows and door locks. Quite uncommon for a radio car in that era. Curiously the '93 had a dark blue interior, the '94's and '95's had a light blue/gray interior. I had a '96 for a short period that had a red interior. Quite remarkable for a cop car. G

    You won't need that much from the '91 for the '94. Eliminate the spoiler mounting depression and the Impala SS emblems. If LASD had bucket seas, just sand off the SS from the kit's buckets. You can take the interior and engine from the '91 and combine it with the SS body for a '93 as well. I've driven nearly every year of this car in one form or another. G
  11. Rereleased Chevy Impala SS

    I wish they would have re tooled the side view mirrors of the '95-'96 models. But I'll take it. G
  12. 1978 Chevy Nova 4dr POLICE

    This is exactly like the car I drove way back when. I HAVE to get one of these. G
  13. New Forum Rules

    I'm offended by this. G
  14. Favorite police procedural/crime dramas

    "Barney Miller" Best depiction of a big city detective bureau on tv ever. G
