Old Cop Car
This might interest some of you. I don't think it's a bonafide high performance police package or anything, but it takes on the appearance of an old cop car.
The link above has a link to the photo gallery for the images.

That looks a helluva lot better than my first car: a 1988 Ford Tempo! When I started using it in 1999 it had well over 200,000 miles on it, a light bar that actually sucked in light (rotating black holes), an inoperable siren, a "vintage" radio, a Hibatchi Spine Bender Bucket seat, and a CDI factor of about -2437.6. Oh! Lest I forget, it had one of those automatic seat belts that wouldn't disengage about every third time you opened the door, thereby pinning you in your seat to await death in a loud, grotesque miliatry fasion at the hands of the puke you just stopped.
(I disconnected the belt and it still managed to graze my skull as I got out once. Vindictive bitch.)
Finally, it tended to stall and die at inopportune moments like 2:00 am in the wrong area of town, and when you wrapped it up to 50-55 mph it would shake like a dog shitting razor blades. ("She's breakin' up Cap'n! I don't think I can hold 'errr!")
When I dared to suggest that maybe it had passed its usefulness as a patrol vehicle in the 2,000th repair request it spurred closed-door sessions of the town council to consider what punishment I should receive for my blasphemous attitude toward the sacred car!

When we got a new chief, he was going to enter it in the local Demo Derby. He wanted to drive it wearing a pig mask and planned to drive around chucking donuts at the crowd. Never got his wish. They sold it to a "ditch-rider" before the derby. He had approval from the town until then, though.
Before I had the POS, the officer who had it drove it to the scene of a man trapped in a canal drainage. It was accessible only through a field with about a foot+ of mud. The fire trucks and ambulances all got stuck immediately. That officer drove the Tempo across that field and dropped a rope to the guy just as he was losing his grip, saving his life. The town's response? Lengthy discussions about whether they should suspend or fire that officer for mistreating that car that way."Nothing says guilty like a high-priced lawyer."
