    What did it actually say? It’s common that private security companies with play-like cops will do up their vehicles like that.

    Those are a pair of presumably plastic handcuffs hanging on the spotlight handle. Pushbar up front which you can see the shadow on the road. Wanker.

    In Australia it's an often-used general derogatory insult and an expression of contempt towards someone who is contemptible, obnoxious, egotistical, or annoying. Tone is everything of course :) Literally means masturbator, but that isn't it at all. A friend smiling and saying to another friend acting the fool, "Don't be a wanker" is much less offensive than sternly saying to a stranger in a bar "You stupid ****in wanker!". The latter would probably result in a bar fight. haha Anyway, the tosser (a British expression of contempt) in the black Tahoe is definitely a stupid ****in wanker.

    My solution to this is to call the police, and to maybe report that these individuals are doing something they aren't and endangering the lives of others.

    You know, if they want to be a douche I'll be a douche right back. You may not agree with what I'm doing and you're entitled to that, just like I am entitled to laughing my ass off when I get them pulled over by a real cop :)

    Installed the 2m/70cm ham radio antenna, but I got sent the wrong one. Going to send it back and get one that isn't a fiberglass rod. But still, whacker status increased by 100%

    I think Ram Mounts makes a pretty decent one that comes apart easily when you don’t want the bulk or want to be stealthier

    To truly count as a whacker, in my opinion they have to actually use and preferably install the lights. A couple of the cars on this thread probably were seriously high mileage police auction specials and the very low bid winners are just driving them until the wheels come off.....I seriously doubt they do or care anything about the added features. Most hard core whackers are really trying to show off their special vehicles by looking AND acting the part whenever possible.

    Looks like his ceiling upholstery is falling off in the back. Definitely not maintained by any respectable township.

    Is that stripe on the side red paint? Possibly a former fire department administrative vehicle.

    Yeah, that one was painted. The thing looked like it was taken out of service more than a decade ago

    Spotted a couple of Wackers today.

    First one was in Texas. Unmarked white Crown Vic doing +20. Caught up to him and saw he had Arkansas plates. Passed him at 105 mph. I think he even braked to slow down as I was about to pass him, then he drove slower than his prior +20. :laugh:



    Second bonehead was in Tennessee. Traffic was genuinely spooked and backing up, too afraid to pass. WTF...it was from www.federalsignal.com a private company who sells police and EMS stuff to government customers. I gave the female driver the wanking gesture as I passed.
