    Im not worried. The thing is still slow. And even slower with all that police crap thrown in lol. Looks a lot nicer than the Crown Victoria though. Picking out its headlight signature is going to be the problem.

    i said i don't like the company. i wasn't referring to bailout money. i just think they have gotten by making shit for cars and bad decisions on which cars to make.

    they are making money by being the last company standing. that and the fact our government is going all out on a jdm smear campaign. but what can you do?

    they should all have hybrids since they want to worry about greenhouse gasses and want strict emmission laws. thats where they should spend our tax dollars. then we can outrun them all night long

    i personally think it should be like japan.

    give them the most fuel efficient, cheapest car that will keep our officers safe. we dont' need high speed chases, 400hp chargers, and high tech bullshit. cops will ALWAYS be outgunned by the true criminals.

    the last thing we need is to try and be like europe with BMW and Mercedes cop cars. Unless of course they are confiscated from drug dealers and other criminals.

    I have never understood how law enforcement has gone so long without a purpose built vehicle. I mean we dont just throw people into the back of panel vans do we? I understand that there are a helluva lot more cop cars on the road than meat wagons but still.

    ive only really ran from the police once and it was on my motorcycle. the cop turned on his lights, i twisted the throttle and he just gave up and turned off his lights. didnt even try to chase me. these taurus' are pretty lame tho. whatever happened to cops getting those purpose built police cars?

    :mad::mad::mad: these remade cars are starting to piss me off. What fucking conversation are they having?
    "Ohhh, I know, lets make over inflated retarded looking versions of our old cars that people loved because they were sleek fast and an instant classic!"
    "Sir, that's the best idea we've heard in years, then again, these shit flinging monkeys we hired probably weren't the best candidates, but lets do it!"
