Ford Introduces New Taurus-based Police Car- Yahoo! Autos Article Page
Oh shit I didn't read to the end. They still make the "G8" BUT I CAN'T BUY THEM! I've gotta look for a pic.
just in time for the government to spend your tax dollars on shit we don't need from a company we don't like.
I say give them all Chargers and call it a day.
I use to be able to pick out the light patterns, now I just drive like an adult.
ford never took a bailout... the only problem i have with them is that they wont bring the cool shit they sell in europe over here (305hp Focus RS, 65+mpg diesel Fiesta, etc..)
yeah there are unmarked random cars all over in florida, you never know when a cop is around. but yeah i havent had a ticket in years, ever since i stopped driving like an asshole.
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?
... but they did take $7 billion for efficiency.....
Ford may not need bailout money, but will take efficiency subsidy | ForceChange
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.
but it worked out so well for Italy
pic no workie
but i think i know the picture. it's the crashed lambo on wet pavement right?
hehe yeah... put it up from a different source... should work now
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.
ohhhh.....a penny for your thoughts.
Thats what we need. Cops raping twin turbo awd cop cars. Guess who gets the repair bill?
or insurance bill. or life insurance payment. or........
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?
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!"
Just add down syndrome!
Then this shit?
but the ones that piss me off most are:
My GF's dad had one of these as his GI car, and I literally could not fit my foot between the front of the back seat and the back of the front seat. I wear size 9 1/2 boots.
The full Monte:
And the one that pisses me off most:
into this fucking thing
