Planning for a police dio and want to use the AMT Camaro. Googled a bit but it seems that police depts using the newer Camaros are quite few. City police/Highway patrol/County Sheriff doesn't really matter but I want a scheme that stands out.

Any hints?

My favorite is not a patrol car. The US Air Force uses Camaros as chase cars (http://www.motortrend.com/news/chevrolet-camaro-ss-u-2-chase-car/) when flying U-2s.

NASA uses Dodge Chargers (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/dryden/Features/ER-2_Charger.html) in the same role.

That chase car was a stunner MPWR! I would need a big city patrol car to go with a civilian Charger in a police dio I'm planning for.

This rocket from Houston had something extra. Hard to determine what color to use for the decals though...

I think color is white, hard to tell on this picture...
And decals seems to be some reflectives ones.

Is that armored car really a VW? Or did the troopers really just steal that emblem off someone's car to decorate their ride...?:sly:

The Miata is cool- until you see that the light bar is affixed to the hard top. Then instead of driving a cool little convertable you're driving a goofy small coupe in Florida of all places, and can't put the top down no matter what. :icon16:

It looks like a V100 or V150 armored car built by Cadillac Cage unless it is a really hopped up Beetle...

Haha, the image is so large so that one was totally outside of the screen. Was scrolling up and down to find a VW marked car and started getting crazy :rofl:
