Default Bonny Interceptors?

Just a thought, since most sseis can smoke a crown vic. Just seems like that would have worked out bonnys are only a little smaller than CVs on the inside.

Yeah, too bad they cost $15000 more new. Plus they are front wheel drive. The 4T65E would never hold up with a city cop at the wheel for 8-16 hours a day.

Logan i dont think that statement is correct....Down in NC the Sheriffs have Chevy Luminas (police package) with the Series 2 3800 in them and the 4T65

Thanks for the link but I dont understand why the infromation is not available. I mean last I checked Ford is not part of the government and I'm just plain curious as to what they have to hide.

Back to the radios from that other discussion. I don't really have to worry about getting caught since there are mostly county roads around here so I just gun it and turn off somewhere around a corner. Don't get me wrong, I have gotten away from a cop one time and I never want to have to do that again, but also I did it in a 132 horsepower Plymouth Breeze. I only got away because he never knew I was running so that was that. Plus with a $330 radar detector I don't think I'll ever be doing that again.

But yeah around here with all these small towns you can usually make it out of jurisdiction before they can get close enough to see what kind of car your driving.

Now for the bottom line is don't run because even if you get away you'll probably have a heart attack after you park somewhere to collect yourself.

3800 powered impalas you see are just for regular duty use. the 3800 has heat issues therefore they cant be used for highway pursuit. This has been tested in NY an thats why highway has crown vics only. though the 3800 is just as quick chevy will not warrantee for high speed use.

With dodge offering police $13,000 hemi powered magnums ford may loose market share. Cant wait to see the 300 C versions

No doubt. Sheriff'* also don't spend much time in cities. Take my post as a collective whole, not separate parts. All of the hard accelerating they do in town does not mix well with FWD trannies.

With that said, even my counties SO doesn't use FWD cars anymore. In the mid 90'* they switched to Lumina'* and Impalas. They are back to the CVPI because they had too many tranny problems.

You're just a little off on the price there, even when buying a HUGE number for a large agency. Add $7000 and you're close.
