Question about Saleens...


My Alt. Mode Sucks

Recommended Posts

I understand that those Saleen Mustangs are police-modded and all that goodness -- but my question is, why would a police department bother using cars that are rather expensive as their patrol vehicles? I mean we all know 'stangs ain't cheap, so why bother when most departments use four-door sedans (which when you think about it is more practical)?

 

This reminds me of G1 Red alert, in that a fire chief would in no way be able to afford a frickin' Italian hot rod. :07laugh

It's not out of the question to see a Saleen Mustang police car. D.A.R.E. police cars are often not standard sedans, but flashier cars. Google some pics and you'll see what I mean. Here's a real Mustang GT police car:

Using a regular Mustang isn't unreasonable, it isn't uncommon to see them used as "pursuit" cars by State/Highway Patrol - the fleet price on them is probably around $16k.

 

However, using a Saleen is completely ridculous - the S281 is $70k.

In Alabama, they use Dodge Chargers for State Troopers' Cars, and they ain't exactly stock.

 

Yeah, I know, insert your "Alabama" joke in here if you need to. It's okay.

Those looks so good :drool

 

My local PD in Mississippi is all Ford so the best I can hope for is a slow and heavy Crown Vic when I finally get sworn in. Our old cars are dark blue but the newest are black. Eventually they are going to black cars with white doors... kinda' like Barricade :redface

I work in Tracy CA and they just picked up a Dodge Charger cruiser... thing looks mean. Meaner than any ol' stodgy Crown Vic ever could.

    • Haters are as common as air. Ironic, they act like children. YES! I thought the same thing when I saw the Cheetor sword.
    • I was reading some of the comments after the Rise of the Beast toy reveals and was taken aback. I could not believe the amount of hate I was seeing. It's not like it was the Studio Series stuff either though, it's literally the stuff for the kids specifically and not also for the collectors. They're not even that bad though. I'm getting all those Weaponizers and the Weaponizers that come with the larger figures, I'll be getting them too. I'll also be getting the Spark Armor style figures. It's nice that they learned from the Cyberverse releases and use the robot's arms as the armored forms arms instead of trying to make unarticulated arms from the armor piece but it's just a shame that the base figures are now worse overall than either size Spark Armor base figure from Cyberverse. But the price reflects this. More complicated armors with less complicated base figures for $20 which was right in between the prices for the two sizes from Cyberverse. The smaller, core class looking figure look pretty good too even if they lack some articulation. That Rhinox in particular looks real good. Back to the Weaponizers though, is it just me or do they remind anyone else of better designed Arms Microns from Takara's Prime line?
    • Finally getting around to looking at ole Red Cog, and perhaps he might work better with Fortress Maximus, or Grand Maximus. BUT, the real fun here is seeing what accessories go with whom! It adds just a little more to so many characters! https://youtu.be/FPntST2aqgs
    • I 100% agree. I am always taken a bit by surprise by the amount of hate that spews from some of the fans. It's like they have no ability to pick and choose if they actually want to spend the money on something or not. I have really been loving the little dinobots despite their flaws. And yes! I have my Grimstone  on display and can't wait to have 2 dinobot combiners.
