Would look the part, anyway. I've seen LeSabres used as detective cars in NY, LA, and a few other cities. Basic model, but with GT suspensions, HO alternator, and some dash mounted gear, with an antenna or 2 out on the trunk. Almost all were silver or white, with a few dark blue ones.
If anyone has seen CSI, Detective Jim Brass drove one in the first few seasons, actually.
I've seen a few of those in the city. They are easy to spot out since they are dark blue, I don't think they sold many dark blue Lesabres to civilians. I forgot about the antenna on the back of my imp, that probably makes people think I'm a cop as well. TBH, I am really thinking about taking my tints off anyway. I don't want to get tickets, and I really hate how I think its 7 oclock any day its overcast .

Its a shame that although they are really reliable and can be good cars for college aged kids, the C, H, and W bodies sorta have a stigma stuck to them, especially when the owner adds some things to make them look less like the geriatric cars they are. Sometimes the customizations get out of hand (around here people put ridiculous wheels and ventiports on trunks ). I was watching cops the other night, and realized that a ton of the clips involved people driving these GM'*, it seems like their big bodies, cushy interiors and reliable engines seem to attract the wrong crowds, no matter what badge is on them.
