Ahhhhhh, grasshopper! Your have shown financial administrative savvy worthy of a senior Dungeon embezzlement coordinator!
That is pretty much what the Chicago PD did for the Blues Brothers movie. They sold a bunch of worn-out marked cars to the movie producers, and got a really healthy price for them. The producers were ecstatic with the deal, too; all they had to do to the cars was install roll cages to protect the stunt drivers. I imagine the Terminator producers and LAPD did something comparable, and the producers didn't even have to pop for roll cages!
