Ever wanna joy ride your own cop car?

Have you ever wanted to start your own taxi or livery business?  Ever just want to take cop car for a spin and couldn’t fearing the consequences?  Well you can if you buy one of these retired beauties from the CHP.  The potential uses are there, it just takes a little creative thinking.

They are sold out of Torrance with lists updated daily.  They even start as low as $2,500, arrest history not included.  For all your retired cruiser shopping needs its as easy as a quick phone call to 310-538-0469 for daily updated listings.

I’d probably skip the old Taurus sedans and go straight for the Crown Vic…been in a few over the years and can tell you they ride and handle much differently than the straight up civilian version.  Just remember caveat emptor as these cars though well maintained have had a lot of hard miles put on them.

  1. This gives me total Blues Brothers flashback!

    [Jake and Elwood are arguing about the new Bluesmobile]
    Jake: What is this?
    Elwood: What?
    Jake: This car. This stupid car. Where’s the Cadillac?
    [Jake tries to use the car’s lighter, but it does not work; he throws it out the window]
    Jake: The Caddy, where’s the Caddy?
    Elwood The what?
    Jake: The Cadillac we used to have! The Bluesmobile!
    Elwood I traded it.
    Jake: You traded the Bluesmobile for this?!
    Elwood: No … for a microphone.
    Jake: A microphone? [pause] Okay, I can see that. But what the hell is this?
    Elwood: This was a bargain. I picked it up at the Mount Prospect City police auction last spring. It’s an old Mount Prospect police car. They were practically giving them away.
    Jake: Well thank you, pal. The day I get out of prison, my own brother comes to pick me up in a police car.

  2. Elwood: Its got a cop motor of 440cubic inch plant. Its got cop tires, cop suspension,cop shocks. Its a model made before catalytic converters, so it will run good on regular gas. So whaddya say is it the new blues mobile or what?

    Jake: Fix the Ciggerette Lighter
