Unless someone has really,  really taken care of it, any 9C1 is completely roached at this point. 

I miss my old squad car.

How about a 2012 9c1? This series also has a Super Interceptor class for non-spec legal cop cars.

I think this is really cool. Maybe cooler than it actually is!

I have a good friend who is a cop and he told me all the cops miss the Crown Vics. He told me they hate the Chargers even though they are faster. I almost never see the Caprice/G8. Wonder why.

It's my understanding that the people in handcuffs in the back of a cop car are rarely volunteers.

After one particularly difficult weekend dealing with everything racecar, my racing partner and I outlined a Time Trial series we liked to call "Spec Silver".  It's all non-police versions of Grand Marquis and Crown Vics (and possibly other vehicles commonly chosen by individuals who may be over a certain age) where the vehicle must remain bone stock down to the all season tires and all power accessories must work including power seats, power windows, radio and A/C.  You're DQ'd if any of that is found to be inoperable in tech after a run session.  The premise is to get a group of people to show up with similar cars with an absolute minimum of preparation outside of normal maintenance and drive a slow car fast on the track for bragging rights.  We wanted to reward people who also drove their car to the track and who ran older versions of the cars with the pushrod V8, but we never completely worked out the handicapping system for that or for other vehicles beyond the Panther chassis.

I'm wondering if we'll start seeing Chargers becoming the new "Fat Miata". 

I'm already seeing auctioned cruisers around town but no idea what the price point is.

I've got a good argument against them: the transmission is awful. You need to put a giant cooler on the car to ensure you can do more than a single lap. Also, flooring it 2 seconds before you get to the apex in anticipation of the kickdown is unnatural.

 

I'm a big fan of running what you brung, and they're fun to haul around a track, but if you thought stock Miatas were slow...
