This whole thread is so amusing, just so many "off the wall" ideas, most of them just make me say "why"?

We used have a bunch Shriner activities around here, but, I don't think I've seen a fez since I was teenager.

You're a shriner? I'm sorry, I can't think of your name, but your fez is familiar...

Since I've devolved this thread to anything auto-related, it's as good a place as any for this:

from Kentucky.com

Behold; the new KY State Police cruiser.

Attachment 39055

Quote:

...state police public affairs division said Wednesday that each cruiser cost $25,400...The Caprice is a full-size, rear-wheel drive sedan developed exclusively for the U.S. law enforcement market. It has a 355-horsepower V-8 engine that provides high performance to meet police needs...Webb said that a research committee tested the cruisers and that they were cheaper than the new Ford alternative.
I wonder if this will be better than the last time our Troopers tried a Chevy. Remember the whale-bodied Impalas that cops all over America couldn't get rid of fast enough? They topped out (the cop version, mind you) at around 100-110 mph. I remember listening to the police scanner one night, and hearing the absolute hatred one trooper had for his Impala, as he was completely left in the dust by a four cylinder Ford Ranger (he outran the trooper, but, he couldn't outrun the radio).

Only a few months later, I listened as a Crown Vic-driving trooper read off the license number of a Mustang GT at 140-something mph.

We'll see how this one does.

The crown vic is dead. This past spring, the testing of cruiser offerings at U-MI, where cops come from all over the country to see the cars and testing, the Chevy came out on top. The only drawback was the Chevy doesn't offer a column shift. The cops are hoping Chevy will cobble together some Aussie parts if demand is sufficient.

RIMS, PEOPLE, RIMS!!!



my god, this would be soooo cooool.

ZenGum 06-14-2012 08:16 AM

Grav, fret not! The caprice is made in my home town, and is a specialised version of the Holden Commodore. Unless it has been totally pussified for the US market, it has PLENTY of grunt and should be able to keep up with everything except overpriced supercars.

Here's the caprice:


Here's a close relative, the Holden Commodore HSV. Not sure if the Caprice gets the supercharger.


I'll stop here, else, I'll keep posting links of hoons in commodores for hours.
