    2012 Dodge Charger Police Package....









    Desperately want to take this out to the track with our older Police Package Charger.




    The cruisers have a 3 year service life, and a hard one at that, but I definitely be keeping an eye out in 2014 come auction time.

    Lovely!

    (that looks like about a 1966 chevy biscayne or something like it, you were just kidding about the charger part right?) OK, I'm picky.

    The "Old School" Chevrolet is a 1966 but it is only showing a 283 engine.

    I came on the job in 1968 and we still had some 1965 and 1966 on the line.

    All had the 327 motors and they were a hoot to drive. Single "bubble gum" machine on the roof was our only emergency light plus a siren that was activated by the axle of the siren itself being electronically pushed against the fan belt.

    It took several seconds for the siren to "unwind" after being activated.

    Dem was da days.

    The times have definately changed for the better.

    I was in a class with some Pinal County deputies a while back, and they had just gotten Chargers. The initial reading was faster and better handling than the Crown Vics, but - not as big and comfy in the cockpit, and the one guy's big gripe was that he couldn't get his cased Rem 700 SWAT rifle in the trunk. Into each life some rain must fall, I suppose!

    The 2012 seems to be a but roomier, but then again we haven't installed the console/MDT/ gun lock, cage, and other goodies yet.

    I hope the new ones have more room.....the 2 unmarked ones we have are too tight for my 6'4" frame with all the gear, and the trunk space is horrible

    Sweet looking ride, as long as it is not behind me with the blues on.

    Our county sheriff's dept are still in the Impala's, but the county next to us have been in the Dodge Chargers since about '07 or '08 and they are bad ass. All black with subdued graphics so it's pretty hard to tell it's a cop car until the LED lightbar comes on.

    West Virginia State Police got this special Challenger for escorting the WVU football team's busses. I think it was donated by one of the local dealerships.

    A PD a few towns over has these - the officers complained a lot about lack of space.

    We still have Crown Vics, and with the cage in back, the suspects hardly have room for their legs. (sniff, sniff)

    I thought GM was going to be importing a large, rear-drive sedan from somewhere (Australia?) that was going to be their new offering for duty use? My memory is fuzzy on that though.

    I sometimes work with a guy who was medically retired from the State Patrol. He LOVED the Charger. According to him, if you were going to pull over a guy coming at you, you had to turn the Crown Vic around in a hurry because it would take a looooong time to get up to speed. He says the Charger will get to speed NOW, so you can be a little more judicious in selecting a turnaround spot.

    Personally, I like the look of last year's Charger. This year--not so much. Now, that WV Challenger...
