but it's so cute!

Recondo 32 owns a white Crown Vic. He likes driving it around because everybody thinks it's a cop car and they give him a wide, respectful bearth. I would, too. The damn thing LOOKS like a cop car.

I don't think this thing earns the same respect. A yellow BUG??? Yeah, that fucking rolling flower-pot is going to strike fear in MY heart.

Bejus. Wimmen.


Does it have a hemi?

All I can do is laugh. I like Volkswagen bugs and I've always thought they were cool. Not very impressive as a cop car though. I think I would fall down laughing at any cop that showed up in that thing.

I bet my Ram pickup could out run this cop

My hometown of Scottsboro, Ala. had a bug on the police force in the early seventies. VW heard about it and used it in a magazine add campaign.

That campaign was famous at the time. It used black-and-white photos and college-level text to make the pitch.

It was so successful a campaign that National Lampoon published a parody. A Bug floated in the water over the text: "If Ted Kennedy drove a Volkswagen, he would be President today."

You think that the sight of a police car should strike fear into someone's heart?

Bob, that's WHY cops patrol, you blithering asswit.

Reminds me of when La Conner, a little town in NW Washington bought a bunch of Renault "Le Cars" as cop cars some years back. Those pieces of shit fell apart faster than the dealer could get parts. The La Conner cops were given somewhat less professional respect than Barney Fife as well. Not a good move. A policeman's gear should inspire respect, not ridicule.

German Polezi routinely patrol in Bugs. Their method of conducting a stop is to pull alongside you holding up a sign ala Wile Coyote saying HALT!. When you do not pull over immediately, they pull out an MP-5 and disable your vehicle, often ending a life or three.
Want fear? try the LAPD's M-114 Recon vehicle they modified for their SWAT team. heck anything dealing with the LAPD should inspire fear even in the hearts of the law abiding.
