Those of you who know me well know that I love police cars.

I actually picked up a white Impala 9C1 back in October, and I'm happy to say I picked up another one last night. The new is black.















































Granted they are 1:64 scale.

Yeah, the Stingray is nice, but a little more than I would like to spend on a car right now.

I do plan on eventually owning an Impala or Caprice though. Not sure which.

Caprice would be nice but GM discontinued the more liveable 9C3 model, so if I wanted a newer model I'd probably have to import a center console from Australia. Which also presents the problem of what to do with the gaping hole where the floor shifter would go since all Caprices will have dash-mounted shifters now.

I do own a shuttle. This is one of the last ones I believe. Lego discontinued it and I had to search all over to find it.

Jordan has a bunch more.

It was around $80. Then Lego discontinued it and now the cheapest I can find is around $200.

$200 is ridiculous!

Caprice is way cheaper. And easier to install police equipment on.

Front push bar and 9C1 wheels.

People tend not to drive like ***hats around you when they think you're a cop.

I've only been in one.

And before you ask, it was a 9C3 bought by a civilian in Dayton before GM closed the loophole. :P

Jeff Luke's response to the K2XX 1500 diesel question...

Quote:
A.com: Lastly, why no diesel?
JL: We are evaluating whether diesel application will be accepted by customers. We look at performance, we look at cost, the value proposition for the customer, stay tuned at this time.

Guess that's better than just a straight no.

Haha, thanks! That probably is a long way of saying, "I have no idea"...

Usually when GM says "Stay tuned" it means something's at least being considered, if not already in the pipeline.

Like all the answers to the 8-speed transmission questions. "Well our 6 speed transmissions are specifically engineered to work well with our new trucks, but we're always looking at ways to further enhance our powertrains, so stay tuned."

Pfft I know you have an 8 speed in the works for trucks as we speak.

As am I.

If the new midsize trucks have a diesel option I'd probably go for that if it wasn't offered in a 1500.
