Police Cars- A fond look back
The new Police cars suck. The police know it, and so do the criminals. With
the demise of the Ford Crown Victoria P71 Interceptor, we are left to rely
upon the quality of the Impala...scarey, isnt it? The Dodge Charger, and
Ford Mustang, are fast, but
are they really a police car? The 1970 Plymouth Fury, 1972 Ford LTD, 1977
Dodge Monaco....just to name a few, now those are true cars for the guys
out there on the streets to keep us safe. Attn. Mercedes Benz....now is the
time for you to step up with an AMG V8 Police Car for the American cop.
safe, comfortable, fast as hell, and able to out manuver any car in any
Dukesfest with James Best 2005 Macungie PA part1.
Everybody had a blast doing this Dukesfest in 2005 at the Macungie Wheels
of Time Streetrod show in PA.
My wife (the brunette) was hired to recreate the Daisy Duke (Catherine
Bach) roll and the other gal was hired to portray Jessica Simpson's Daisy
Duke. Actor Jim Best portrayed his original Roscoe P. Coltrane roll
following in a 78' Plymouth Fury police car owned by a friend of ours. One
heck of a nice guy! The 69' Charger was a S.E. model with the 440.
Cold Start the 1972 Plymouth Fury! Brrrr...
Hi! Its cold and there's a lot of snow on the ol' 72 Fury. Lets see if it
will go. I bought this car about 5 years ago, and I've been using it as a
daily driver since then. It shows about 75000 miles, so it should last me a
while yet. I like these fuselage models, especially the 72 Fury. Its a mean
looking old thing! I actually hit a moose with this car last week, and it
didn't leave a mark on the car! No wonder the cops liked these things,
they're incredibly tough, even if they are a bit hard to look at. Thanks
for checking it out!
1974 Plymouth Fury 3 Hardtop
I picked this car up For 500$ The first part of the video is right after i
picked it up. I bought it to be my next Demolition Derby car but i dont
think i can crush this one, but time will tell. I "raked" it out, put some
old school rims on it and gave it a quick wax job. I have done nothing else
to this car. MUSIC IS BY JT$ OF THE BOOZE BROTHERS,
