Aluma-Coupe Squad Car

This was a hare-brained concept that just kind of presented itself . . . there may have been strong margaritas and loud Jimmy Buffett music involved.

This was the second in a series of whimsical models based on the Aluma-Coupe kit.

What if the Town of Boydville used an Aluma-Coupe for its police force?

It took longer to mask than it did to assemble, but it was fun little slump-buster at the time.

Love it!

The use of the oldschool siren/light combo works really well.

Okay, Danno, very cool model. NOW GO TO YOUR ROOM. I just needed to say that.

Seriously, you built a nice model there, buddy. Congrats.

Tom ~ Thanks, man! You're right . . . I ain't.

Doc Crankus! Thanks for the tip of the hat! However, this car is an example of what happens when I go to my room. :lol:

Just needs a Tommy Gun mounted on the hood.

Does it have a rumble seat for the perps?

That is really... different. I have this image of Mad Max if it was done in the 1950s. ;)

Terrific idea, Mike! Maybe I can catch Brad's trailer over-parked, so I can impound & confiscate it for public service!

Thanks, man.

Aaron, it is different, isn't it?

Sometimes we just gotta have some fun!

Thanks for checking in, my friend.

That's sure a unique way of building this kit. It took quite an imagination to come up with that out of an Aluma-Coupe. I would have never imagined I'd have ever seen this. Now it makes me wander about other Boyd's kits as public service vehicles. Chezoom would sure make a quick taxi! :)

Thanks, Ken. Wait 'til you see its companion . . . a fire engine I call the "AlumaPumpa."

Great concept. If I lived in that particular alternate reality, I'd really have to get busted for speeding more often, just to get pulled over by something cool.
