Since switching to the new police cars we have saved $3000 of fuel bills, however we have not been able to give out a single citation as we cannot catch up to the assailants.

People are sooo mean to the Pacer.

I never saw it as ugly.

In it's day, it was innovative. A small company trying something new.

You meanies.

Before we leave the AMCs,

The Alabama Department of Public Safety used 133 AMC Javelins for Highway Patrol and Pursuit duties.

Each had a 'fleet-service' 401-4v V8 and Automatic Transmission.

How many perfectly good LeMans patrol cars were destroyed in the making of Smokey and the Bandit?

I agree. It was one of those cars that I liked just because it was so different and funky. If General Motor's rotary engine program had not been cancelled, the Pacer may have had more of a chance since it was supposed to get that engine.

Here's a restored LeMans patrol car.

It's great that people show respect even for an everyday car like this and preserve it.

This guy has put together quite a collection of photographs of ASSachusetts State Police vehicles both new and old:

older photos

newer stuff

I've always liked the look of the State Police cars in my state; shame that they're all driven by the biggest assholes on the face of the Earth.

Fantastic look back. Thanks for that. Really enjoy vintage police cars, taxis, fire and medical vehicles..

Yikes, your police look quite Germanic...almost SS.

Here's a vintage Royal Canadian Mounted Police car (national police force) and and more current one.

I like the dark color with white doors the best for cop cars.

My Dad did 25years with the RCMP and is now a Private Investigator, he always attested that the midnight blue cars with white doors were more distinctive. I tend to agree.

I was pulled over in the little town of Elsmere, Delaware a few weeks ago. The officer claimed I was doing 85 in a 35 MPH zone. He let me off with just a warning, :huh: because I had no points on my license and he said I had a cool car (69 PCS), works for me. :yes:

Beware if you go to Elsmere, DE, it's a speed trap.
