    I don't know, it looks too much like a Saturn to me.

    I'm going to out myself as a no-nothing, but what effect do rims like that have on suspension/drivability? I imagine it's negative...?

    I think that does it more than anything else :rofl:

    Simply speaking shorter sidewalls should ride more harshly as a tradeoff for less give in the tire under cornering. Larger rims are used to hopefully accommodate larger brakes.

    Right, that can give greater control but less comfort and more likelihood that the tires are damaged going over a bump.

    You know, I wish I could say I did that intentionally, like when I said "woger" on the radio the other day.

    I would defintely be worried about the wheels in an alley or when curb hopping but Im sure the POU of this vehicle is to catch cars on the highway and be used for public relations.

    I can't stand the look of those. They look like one design team worked on the front, another worked on the rear, and a band of drunken repairmen worked on the middle. Then they just threw it all together.

    Same here. I like the front end, but the rear end thje rear looks terrible, The interior looks unfinished to me. Why does every car now what to have a drastic 'chopped' roofline? It looks like it was designed by a 12 year old.

    Please tell me that was seized/donated and not bought.

    The Bellmawr station is running an unmarked 6 cyl Charger for traffic enforcement. That money could have been used to upgrade that slug to a Hemi.

    And also...it's marked wrong...WTF? Why is STATE TROOPER on that side??

    EDIT: Found another pic:

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I seen that before and heard it was a joke which no one caught at the station. Is this for real?

    In other news, I like the Camaro, but my buddy who bought a yellow one says the QC is non-existent. His paint peeled off on the bumper within a month or so, the dealer won't take care of it, and he is trying to resolve it with the factory. He says the view out the back is non-existent and the interior is pure trash. He only bought it because his kids wanted him to buy Bumblebee.

    Oh, I like the Decepticon mustang police car in Transformers better than either one of the Camaro or Challenger.
