Default Radar alert!

Saw some older highway patrol vehicles at a recent car show. Here's one from Nevada.

I used to own a Mustang like that. Loved that car, except in the snow or rain. Dry pavement was great!
IIRC, if you look at the dash on those Mustangs there should be a sticker from Ford indicating that the windows must be rolled up over speeds of...100mph I think it was. The back windows were found to pop out of the car from the pressure at high speeds.

That Fury looks like it's ready to go for a jump on The Dukes of Hazzard with that roll cage in it.

I just love old police cars! Still have an 89 Caprice 9C1 in the driveway.

is that a smart car with highway patrol on the side. Who would use it, it can only go to 85mph.
