Anyone know the specs on a Cop issue Crown Vic or have any driving experience/advice with them? I might buy one. Thanks.
Maybe if you'd introduce yourself before posting people would be more than willing to help you. HINT HINT!
all i know is that theyre powerful (because apart from that... i dont know
Ah sorry that slipped my memory! I introduced myself.
AS most people say, google is your friend. Try this
Don't they strip them of all the "good stuff" prior to reselling their cruisers?
Ya...by the time they sell them they are old POC...
Yeah, they have been thrashed and crashed.. Watch the police chases and see how they stop the other cars..! :screwy:
It's always amazed me the way they drive their cars...if our coppers done that they'd be sacked lol
Yeah.. and they would probably get sued... Have you looked on your forum? :mrgreen: i asked you a question about the advanced driving test... :hi: :thumbs:
Gee...over here everything is sooo polically correct you have codes for ethnic groups..ie; IC1=Coloured..let olone go crashing motors into each other lol..and, Yes, I PM'd you over there too lol
Did you.. ahh.. there isn't the instant alert so i didn't notice.. :doh:
LOL...Ok, who stole my post?!? It's gone!
edit: ok...it was returned..sorry :thumbs:
The same dodgy people who caused the bobbies to come round you estate...! :hi: :hi: :hi: :hi:
thieving little toerags :hi:
*makes mental note: must set example, must not spam*
A tad late for that old chap...
My cousin got one from an auction. The car was in really good shape even though it was 8 years old when he got it. Like most everyone has said before, police maintain their crusiers very well.
Umm...they dont here.... :screwy:
Well it might make a difference what state it is. I mean here in Wisconsin the only high speed chases that cops participate in involve people speeding to the grocery store to get more beer :mrgreen:
Yes, they do maintain them well. However, they drive the sh*t out of them. They have a heavy foot on both pedals.
Ive dirven a 96 crown vic with an interceptor engine they really haul but
the cops are so hard on them they break down really ezily
pros: smog exempt :mrgreen:
Here high speeds end in either death/ crash or a crazy hick-ville shootout...
I'd still like to know how your cops in the US manage to keep their jobs with the way they drive lol :banghead:
Because their bosses drive the same way... :screwy: :mrgreen: :screwy: :mrgreen: :screwy:
Cops in th US (literally)can almost get away with murder. Seems to me, most of the laws don't apply to them, for some reason :cussing:
Having friends that are on several different police forces I can say with
They are taught in the Police Acadamy to drive that way. Cops are not defensive drivers. And come one who doesn't like watching the chases on COPS, I love it.
Our cops in the UK are taught to drive in pretty much the same way..only difference is, Police over here tend to keep the cars in average condition :thumbs:
Yeah, right :laughing:
Over here the only reason they can (sometimes) get away with murder and the law is because they are the law...they keep thier jobs cuz they were taught to drive like that cuz criminals over here are crazy, stupid, maniacs that cant control a...anything...
They are taught to drive that way but there have been policy changes in several departments in the US concerning the driving especially in pursuit situations due to the number of law suits filed over others being hurt in accidents as a result of some of these chases.
Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of city miles.
Over here in the UK the cops go for the turboed Volvo's like the V70's. Dont seem to see them for sale come to think of it.......
That's because you haven't been lookin' :hi:
They have to sell them eventually so as to not be outdone by the competition... :thumbs:
