I saw a police charger yesterday when I was driving to work. His lights were smoking. I think the wiring for the roof lights shorted and started to smoke and the cop got out of the car and stood a few feet from the car.
They also have a hood light, even though we can order it, as I and couple other member have done.
"They Were Just Jealous That My Charger Pulled More Kitties Than A Bowl Of Milk"
Glad to see they've beefed up the brakes - wouldn't want them catching fire like the old cop Intrepids...
These things must be cheap, cheap, cheap - I just noticed that my town (East Jerkwater, NH) just bought one, and here we can barely afford to keep the street lights on until dawn...
A word of warning: Watch your rear-view mirrors carefully - the Charger headlights look much different than your ordinary cop headlights...
The shifter is awful. It still has paddle stick built in but it's a pain to not only put it in gear but to also to actually use the autostick funtion. One of my best friends is a DE State Trooper and he has one of the five Chargers that DE has in testing... the only downside is that DE was given five V6 Chargers instead of the HEMI. They've tested the V6 because there was a complaint that it was too slow and they found out that it's just as fast as the Crown Vic's they already have.
We expect to have one of these Police Chargers out within the next couple of months to our local Poker Run so everyone can check them out. They're pretty cool.
Plus, all of the additional mods that come on these cars, if you decided that you really needed it, can be ordered through MOPAR if you really really want them.
