The Camaros would still be POS cars because they would be really beaten up...

used t5

used t5 general good nick, watch out for the filler on the dash and side of the central console, also any damage at the front inside the grill, plus a strange one, but used police vechicle often have rotten paint on the roof, due to the i.d. stickers.
Saw a few in an auction house in suffolk, cracking cars, but a few dodgy things to look out for.

Worked with a guy serveral years ago and remember a stroy he had. Whne he was 18 his dad bought him a car from a police auction, and old station wagon cop car. What he learned when he open the hood was that it cam complete with a 426 Hemi.

He said that was the most fun he has ever had with a car. He would pull up to the line next to some friends and destroy them. Nobody ever expected anything out of his little station wagon. He also said that the front wheels would lift off the ground if he floored it. Souds pretty sweet to me. Never had heard about a hemi crusier before.

You mean if your car IS an ex-Police car lol....anyways, the chassis number should tell you all you need to know, simply quote it to your vehicle registration authority (in the UK we have the DVLA), they should be able to shed some light on it for you

i have an american police spec car that was used an an fbi captains car and it is the best car i have driven. very fast with its all alluminum 4.6 litre v8 that has almost 300 hp. it also has the upgraded stiffer suspension and dual free breathing exhast. if you can find on not used for daily patrol, go for it, but as i said, definatly do a background check first.

police vehicles

The advantages of buying an ex-police car is that they usually have factory performance upgrades on the engine, suspension, and drivetrain. That is how it is in the U.S. so I'm sure it would be the same in the U.K.

becuase its difficult to insure any modified car, you can get away with allow wheels and tinted windows swaping the stero but any engine or perfomrance mods you ahve to delare and they will either refuse to insure you or charge you through the nose.
