    Looks like a version of the PL2 with some sort of "video radar" camera system on top as described by the auction. I never knew Kustom made a PL 2 camera unit. Someone local should buy this lot for cheap as it contains 4 lidars and some radars too.

    It most likely hooks up to a VCR. Records what the officer sees when clocking traffic.

    If even one of those actually worked would be worth the $65

    I haven't seen something like this before. I thought the camera was a different module in Prolaser series. There was a time when these lidars were popular on Europe with different names (I think Mesta used them in France under its name).

    It looks like one of those side job spaceships in Star Trek that they tried to make have Federation DNA but ended up being goofy looking instead.

    Like the "real" spaceship designers were too busy and kicked the job over to Karl in fabrication with a note that said "new spaceship, needs to look like the Enterprise but different"

    Discontinued junk. Parts no longer available for that. If it’s $20.00 it’s fine for a collection but not for testing.Would look great on a shelf.

    I think McNulty getting caught having sex with the prostitutes during the sting he was a part of was one of the best moments in TV.
