Question about Saleens...

My Alt. Mode Sucks

Recommended Posts

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.



Looks close to the Barricade re-paint! :clap

Over here in NYC it all depends. Highway patrol officers have magnums now. This one time i was at a stop light and theres this red mustang cobra reving its engine at me. So i revved back and took off on the green. Mustang puts on police lights and pulls me over...

I actually saw an S281 on the road today.


It was red.

I saw a (1999-2004) black one Tuesday in the Wal-Mart parking lot. I had to do the "let's make sure this is a real Saleen and not a bunch of stickers, ground effects, and badges" check and it had everything.

Saleens are the real deal. Especially the S7. But I can live with the S281 if it was handed to me, you know.


I found it pretty amusing to see Bumblebee without any brake calipers throughout the movie.

here in pburg they use the new chargers, they do that in huntington as well. in the hamlin / west hamlin area be on the look out for an unmarked solid black charger... it blends in with traffic rather decently but every time you see one you have that automatic impulse of wanting to hit your brakes. oh yea, i'm in WV.

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

Yes, four door sedans are more practical. California has been known to use a few Camaro's to catch speeders.

People in Cali drive fast as hell and some of these morons have the urge to run from the law. They think this is Dukes of Hazard.
