Police vehicles - What makes/models have you seen our there?

Saw a TX state trooper ford F-150 unmarked car/truck this morning (TX 121 Frisco/Plano). 2nd time I've seen that. I remember seeing Camaros and 5.0 Mustangs back in the 80's. Any other interesting police cars out there?

I've got one that'll make all of you jealous. My unmarked car while in Homicide was an electric blue 2010 Ford Focus. Blue lights hidden everywhere. It was awful to drive but I had a ton of fun because nobody ever expected it to light up. I was in two pursuits with it. The city then decided to scrap the Focus' as unmarked cars and got us all Fusions. Blacked out with blue lights everywhere. I really liked that car actually.

It's incredibly hard to kill a Crown Vic. Those things were more solid at 100,000 miles than the new Taurus and Explorer Interceptors are at 10,000 LOL Jump some railroad tracks or hit a curb at 80 and a Vic will laugh it off. Hit a pothole in an Explorer and it'll need frame work, a fuel pump and new transmission. My Explorer has 25k on it and it's on it's 2nd fuel pump and my tranny is on it's way out. Non-turbo.

I did enjoy the Crown Vic for our Scout Cars in Toronto....my wife and I went to the Keys on holidays a few years ago, I always wanted to do the drive from Miami so we flew there and booked some econobox rental. When we got there the shit boxes were all out so we got "upgraded" to a Crown Vic, it didn't have the Interceptor package but it took me back. My wife kept telling me to slow it down, I never really got it going but it was a nice flash back.

Was at a track event last fall and a whole fleet of dodge police vehicles showed up for testing. Even had some jeeps there. Was pretty cool.

many many Ford Explorers in the WSP fleet. Especially makes sense for winter on the passes.

In Phoenix, there is a new yellow 5.0 Mustang that is completely unmarked that patrols the loop 101. There are also countless completely unmarked F150's.

Other than that, I really haven't seen anything all that unusual here
