CHP have quite a few. Have actually been passenger in a car pulled over by one. Waiting on an on-ramp. They are all white with a clear light bar.

In Northern Virginia there are Z28 undercover cop cars. They are either metallic purple or metallic green. It is so strange seeing them behind people with the lights on.

In MD there are bunches of mustangs. I recall Baltimore city bought a pile of mustang gts that were inferior to the crown vics because they couldn't hold top speed like a crown vic could?

There are a couple 98-02 SS Camaros in a city near me, all black with slim LEDs in the front and rear windshields and dark silver lettering on the sides, you probably wouldn't know it was a cop until it's too late. Haven't seen any new ones as interceptors yet, except for the rendering a magazine did.

I saw the charger cop car a bunch of times. There is this college town near me I used to cruise around, and I've seen a Mustang 5.0 notchback cop car. Never saw any camaros though.

watch out for a Red Z28 Camaro with Flowmaster pipes its a state trooper likes to hang around the springfeild area of I-95 to Alexandria/Seminary Road exits. he only pulls you over if ur severely speeding IE: 100MPH (I guess so not many people will look for him)

he likes to come up to ya and give u the and will buc the car a lil and see if u try to peel off then he flicks the blue's on. ive seen him like 20 times, and a few friends of mine have been pulled over by him

"1) There is a red supra TT on Ritchie Highway that the MD Police Dept. and Mr. Tire are going halfsies on... it will be attending races, racing people, doing undercover work, reporting in VIA police radio, participating in the "underground scene," and basically being a pain for unsuspecting victims. I've seen it around and I think I saw it cruising around friday night... yes I know there are a billion red supra TT's.

2) The cops have this new toy which is sorta like a breathalizer but it detects alcohol all around... it's attached descretely to the flash light. So while they're sweeping your interior looking for contraband or people they're also doing an alcohol test. Somehow this is all legal, she said it falls on the "fine line of legality" but I think she was blowing smoke up I disagree.

3) Not that anyone intentionally does 120 through intersections, but the cameras shoot with 800 speed film and at anything faster than 120mph you can get through an intersection freely. She was telling me all about it and this actually does make sense.

4) If you're ever being chased by a bunch of cops and suddenly they all back off it means the following;
a) There is a road block ahead (most likely with spike strips)
b) If all but one car moves back then expect an EMP

5) Be careful about speeding too fast and being stupid enough to think you can easily outrun the cops. They've got those interceptors, the rustangs do 150 easily, and they're not just hype."

ALSO drive by the main Fairfax Co. PD and you can see into the gates, they park their undercover cars there.

I saw what looked like an old 69 Dodge Charger (lime green) the other day.

The fleshlight/alkie sniffer has been around for awhile.

Luckily in GA, unmarked cars are not the norm and don't do traffic enforcement. I've seen personal vehicles of sheriffs/police loaded up with siresn and lights for emergencies. A friend of mine is a sheriff and has full flashers and sirens on his STi...but he canno use them to pull over someone doing 20mph over the speed limit. I've been "lit up" by a Suburban on the interstate because said dipshit was coming up behind me weveing in and out of the HOV lane and tailgating...so I blocked him up against another car until he flipped the lighs...which is illegal to go,but we all know that most cops are ******** and like to throw their power around. Georgia State Patrol and several other agencies have gotten sneaky though. Here a marked vehicle must have 30% surface area coverage (911 stickers, municipality, Police logos, etc...), but nothing in the books says anything baout wehat colors can be used. GSP came up with the fun idea of dark grey cars with darker grey markings. Lawrenceville City police have blue with darker blue markings as well.

Some of the most notorious police cars in my area were in the city of Doraville...they used to have the 95/96 (?) Impala SS...and they were fast. Once city used to to V6 Grand Prix (non GTP, though everyone liked to think so because a supercharged police cars somehow sounds cool), another used to have a lifted olf Bronco for off-road patrol, but most everything else are Impalas, Magnums, Intrepids, Chargers, F150s, and Atlanta City PD even has some Chevrolet S-10s :gay:

There's also a blacked out charger near me with all the cop logos and police logos being in flat black. It looks mean as hell.

I drove past an undercover G35 coupe on my way out to Lancaster PA a few months ago. It was on the shoulder with it's stobes on and a fully uniformed trooper was walking out of it (deer was hit and still alive in the middle of the highway causing a pretty nasty traffic mess).
