The worst were by far the MSP 1991 Chevrolet Caprice station wagon K9 cruisers with the rear wheel skirts. My apologies to anyone on here who was issued one.

Reno911 I believe the car in your second link is actually a Zimmer; it's certainly not a real RR. Zimmers were "component cars" (think kit car made by a legit factory) based on Ford/Mercury/Lincoln chassis in the early to mid-1980s. I believe they are all titled as Lincolns.

Two picks for worst: Both from the early 80's

#1 was a 1974 Plymouth Satellite with a six banger. We had one waay in the back of the yard that we had to use only when everything else was broken down. In-line skaters could pass it.

#2 was a 1982 Ford LTD with a 302 cid engine with 2 bbl carb. same problem as #1.

Best for me was a 1989 Chevy Impala with the 350 cid engine and 4 bbl carb. We had them for a few years and went back to Fords in the early 90's. I missed the 9C1 chevvy

Zuke, does the Lambo come with a full time mechanic? Methinks the MoPar would be more reliable, fast enough and able to work a 12 hour detail after a busy 8 hour shift! 8)

One of the worst cruisers I had to drive was an 85 Ford LTD CV: 351 CID (Windsor) with a 'variable venturi' carb. Top speed, 115 MPH...on a good day...it was mechanically reliable, though...as was the 84 Diplomat with 318 4bbl, not a speed demon, but on an urban campus, fast enough! :D There was an after-market Holley throttle-body injector available for the 351 (with or without computer), but as I was married at the time, I couldn't afford to retrofit my cruiser :evil: .

Hey Dave-those '84-'87 351 C/Vs weren't that bad. I had an unmarked '84 that would HONK! My least favorite? USAF S/P '78 Fairmont 200 ci straight six. :roll:

That Dodge Viper one makes me laugh! I really did see one of those coming back home from Florida, but it was actually in GA. How do these dept's afford them????? !!!!!

My Guess would be that the Vipers are seized drug dealer cars that make great "tools" for highway patrol.

While stationed in Germany we had VW vans, top end was about 70 mph... going down hill ... with a tail wind. There is nothing as embarassing as being passed by a local citizen while you are running code! :roll:

The new Charger is looking good.
