Badass But if it were to happen, they'd be better off mounting strobes inside along the top of the front and rear windows. Low profile or not, that light bar can't help.

If the Michigan State Patrol actually had a fleet of ZR1s, they couldn't print enough job applications to handle the demand!

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

I love when they use DARE cars confiscated from drug busts. We've had Camaros and Corvette police cars around here for quite some time already

There's a mid-90's police corvette here but it's just for show.

But there are a lot of confiscated cars. I saw a black cop in a Escalade pull over a Explorer full of people several months ago.

Also saw a minivan with someone pulled over..that was funny.

**** ZR1 cop car. A high speed chase would be over before it began!

We had alot of Drug Task Force confiscated cars converted to undercover cars when I went to college. Z28's 5.0's etc. I'll never forget the night I though that the Green LT1 Z28 and white 5.0 zipping around were about to race, and I pulled out in front of them in my Nova thinking I'm going to smoke both of them and started playing with them. Sucked when the 5.0 hit his dash lights and pulled me over and they both searched my car .

We have plenty of Corvette and Camaro Police pursuit cars down here in Florida.

Here is one in use by the Broward Sheriff
