I know people get up in arms with this but is the state selling these cars to just anybody with this color scheme? Who's to blame? I would say the state is.

Supposedly, the frame crossmember UNDER the engine is prone to rot. I also heard that the front shock towers rot out too. Ford engineers were at Ft. Devens analyzing the C/Vs w/frame rot & the state got a handsome settlement...... :eek:

I'm sorry but without the lights and decals, its just an ugly looking car. Never been too crazy of the color scheme to begin with. With a real trooper in the car it can be pretty intimidating sometimes. With a fat, hairy wannabe its almost comical. But that's just mt 2 cents.

A reseller needs to paint the car a solid color before selling it. However, since it looks like this guy is in New Hampshire, that wouldn't necessarily apply to him. (Didn't this come up in another thread?)

His comments about the fram rot are funny though - believe me, there's no way a car like that would be taken off the road and sold unless the frame was like swiss cheese in a sunny Bahama window. Anyone dumb enough to buy this car for anything other than parts deserves the problems they will get.
Like Seabass said.. the state (MSP) is the initial seller of the vehicle..thus they are violating their own state law by not repainting it.

How do these guys get their hands on these ex-statie crusers in the first place?

If there is ~any~ life in them at all, why don't they (the state police) offer them to other Massachusetts state agencies that may need a vehicle, yet can't afford one because of their budget(s)?

1.) at auction

2.) they are available to other agencies. MSP, MEP, MDC, etc vehicles formally belong to the commonwealth office of administration and finance, just in the custody of the individual agency. once the agency has no more use for them they turned back to the state, who then has their own protocol for either reassigning the vehicle offering the vehicle to other government entities, oe selling at auction. all you need to do is put in a written request for one. i'm pretty sure MEP recently transferred a vehicle to a local USCG unit....
