I know right, that's going to require some serious work. A least a lot of it is replacing panels.

Yup, nothing better than racing a finely tuned car on the track it definitely is something to experience. You can always transform your 2 series into a track monster

That would cost more money then I have

I got to take 6 different police package cars around a track when we were testing what one would be our next patrol car. It was more of a course that was set up for use but that was really fun to.

Yeah we got the same result about the Taurus. It fine with out all the equipment in it and for people that don't have to wear uniforms with all their gear.

The caprice was fast but they are made in Australia and it takes to long for part to get here.

So the choice was the Ford Explorer AWD v6 for patrol. And for traffic they are getting the AWD Chargers with v8's.

Detective cars will get either a Camry or a Impala, what ever car they have now is the same car they will get when it's time to replace it.
