Looks to be a mobile ham shack, but the fact that he used an old Crown Vic for it earns him whacker status in my book. Two coil-loaded NMO antennas on either side of the trunk, a glass-mount of some kind on the passenger side, and another NMO whip on the roof
if he'd only tinted his windows he'd be whacker level, expert.
Oh how funny to see a Max360 in the window of one of these.
I'd still need a manual.
Here you go :
My car IS an unmarked police car, or it was before I bought it. I like the look, it's fun to drive, it's roomy, and it was relatively inexpensive.
Here in AR the Funeral escort vehicles look very similar to Police cars, about a week or so ago I was tooling down the highway and noticed a gaggle of cars and a lone car ahead... Turns out it was an escort car but everyone was afraid to pass it as it looked like a cop car.
It had subdued yellow letting on the back that said "caution" and on the sides it said "escort" They have a lightbar across the top and if I recall they are purple LED.
No one would get close to it til I threaded my way through and passed him, then everyone else decided it was safe.
I don't drive a "whacker" car, but it is the same platform a lot of local agencies and Sheriff use in the field (Explorer). I can usually clear the left lane pretty easy just for that fact.
- Looks clean on the outside. Was the interior beat and full of holes from all the equipment mounts ?
They are nice cars for sure. I see from your signature you are an RCR fan
Nice interior, too. No holes anywhere. Equipment attaches to an equipment plate mounted between front seats. Has carpet, oem carpeted mats, and cloth seats front and rear.
No, not a fan. What gave you that idea?
I thought you were quoting the intro of this video but I guess I was mistaken. Now that I watch it again he was making a Blues Brothers reference
And I thought you were referring to Richard Childress Racing, lol. Yes, it's from the Blues Brothers movie, but I added the brakes part.
CVPI retired from the local sheriff’s fleet, with a couple of Laird 800-900MHz antennas thrown on top, and still rocking the spotlight. Definitely wants to look like a cop.
Those single channel antennas are usually trunk mounted, they'll put the multi channel up on the roof sometimes. But he'll scare people anyway.
I was out for a motorcycle ride this evening body cam rolling and spotted this white in color Ford Crown Vic Whacker. I thought it was a legit PD car at first until I got closer. As it comes into view on the left side of the video at the 19 sec mark you can see the push bars and spot lights. I also has the rear passenger door open. When I passed and looked at the driver, she was a 300+ pound female. Her kid was out back smoking by the open rear door. It had 3 large K40 CB whip antennas on the back trunk lid and tinted windows.
That's a whacker Pro right there.
New Braunfels, Texas. He definitely put work into this one because I've never seen anything like it before
