they are Impalas and those are just dumb.
They have a Series 2 and 3.33 gearing. They are quicker than that dog of a Crown Vic.

Yes, and I can vouch for that. The 0-60 in a Impala Police interceptor is about 7.6-7.7, while the Crown vic is 8.7-8.8.

Knowing how much those things are tossed around, would you really want a ford? I'd go with the Impala if I were you

or...

one of these

Keep in mind that police cruisers have the crap beat out of them on a daily basis...and not just during pursuits...just how they are normally driven. The engine "miles" will be higher than the odometer, as they spend a lot of time idling. The best bet is that if you can get some "inside" information, the ones driven by the command staff are generally less abused.

good advice Archon!
My first thought was "Why would anyone want some abused, high mileage, low optioned, probably a solid plastic back seat, hub-capped, beat to near death cop car?"
