How do you get a criminal in the backseat of a 2 door compact?🤔

How about those cars that have no back seat, such as the Ford RS200?

More importantly, is that a police veloster next to it?

I have to think some of those vehicles mentioned above are more geared towards parking and traffic enforcement. Obviously not for transport or chases. Still - they may have good use in limited applications.

The overall list had some fun and intriguing notables.

How I so badly miss our CVPIs though ...

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

A friend of mine restores and rents police and military vehicles for the movie industry. He has a 77 polara with a 440 and all the California emissions garb as it's still required here. That poor choked 440 could not run down a Jeep Wrangler.

. You won’t find the German police caught dead driving a bug in the last 40 some years. It’s all BMWs and it was in his 70s as well.
We used to work with the German police on occasion while I was in the army in the late 70s. I remember seeing the dog car drive up a few times. That small black window in the beetle was almost entirely consumed by the head and shoulders of a massive German police dog ithat looked to be the size of a small adult bear.
I never could see using a two door car as a patrol vehicle. It’s hard enough shoveling some stoned out of his mind dirt bag in the back of a city in when he’s deciding to play but a 2 door is just so much worse. Get some wound up meth head behind you even handcuffed can cause a lot of heartache to everybody in the car.

This car. It's often used in movies. Couldn't drive its way out of a wet paper bag.

France or Italy can’t remember they used WRXs as high speed pursuit car. I saw one.
