If this is off topic, just tell me or move it....

Thats really neato....id love to be the cop driving that daily. Nothing could escape the grasp of the STi....except for a tuned STi (or stock) with a smart driver behind the wheel...

Cali hiway patrol has a lamborghini - seized it in a drug bust. Pretty sure your STi would get walked on.

Government confiscation of private property is NEVER a good idea...

That all depends on who's property it is..... basically if it's not mine, then I don't give a damn.

Why is the taking of ill gotten gains a bad idea? If you sell poison to society for instance, why should you be allowed to keep the profits? If I have to pay taxes and someone gets caught cheating on theirs, why shouldn't the government reduce my tax load by selling off the assets or using them for some type of government work? I am affraid that I don't agree that it is never a good idea. Very rarely are the assets of an innocent person taken. It has happened, but not very often. It is a risk that we take by deciding to live by a certain set of rules, mistakes can and do happen, but it doesn't make the action invalid. By the by Tim, I would get a cheap camera to take with you on the trip or you may find out first hand about the confiscation of personal property. See notes on the first trip. I look forward to meeting you when and if you guy's get here.:D

The Jackson(Mi) City Police had/have a late '70's Corvette as a Patrol car.

The Jackson Post of the State Police had/have a Mustang SVO, '86 I think.

If either one is in your rear view mirror, you might as well pull on over, 'specially if it's the 'Stang. It be one fast horse, and they know how to drive it.

i think each pd should has one highley tuned car with a ex rally driver ..
just think how fast pursuits would be over less chance of people /property damage
especially when people figure out thats its point less to run in the first place
