Default El Paso Texas Using 2012 Mustang as Cop Car

Well, as undercover cop cars at least. I can't say I'll be happy to drive through Texas anymore with these guys about. What do you think?

Honestly.... I think its a good idea, especially since the door clearly states police department, but I dont think they should be allowed to street race other drivers and then give them a ticket for street racing. Thats just not fair lol.

The pictured car is marked but the ones I see pulling guys over aren't marked. Most of the time I see them pull over really slow cars but I know not to race another mustang on the street since these guys are out there.

I would feel better getting pulled over by one of these guys, assuming I would ever try to street race another mustang I pass on the highway >.> but i don't think it would be too cool if they were egging me on. i could probably talk my way down to some non-moving violation for taillight obstruction or something.

El Paso isn't the first police department to use S197's. Quite a few have been doing it for a while now. Here's an article about a 2006 GT that has been used in Michigan (unmarked on the driver's side and fully marked on the passenger side) -

http://mustangforums.com/forum/musta...olice-car.html


These older S197's are starting to be taken out of service and sold to the public. [hint hint]

Haha! The only thing worse would be to own two old Mustang police cars, I guess!

Seriously waste of my tax dollars, people will speed regardless giving out tickets is not going to stop people from speeding and street racing. My opinion is bias because I hate all government.

I have gone through the ****ty system myself, and I will be sure to invest in this radar system lol

They cannot even see you ha worth 1200$

Indiana State Police have a blacked out S197. Found this out when I tried to race him down 80/94 on my way home from work. Luckily I seen his lights through the tinted windows before I got going too fast. He was cool and let me off with a warning and told me to slow the f**k down.

I work for a company that installs in-car video systems for police and sheriff's departments all over the country. We installed are video system in two Mustangs in San Antonio. They are definitely unmarked and it was a custom job to keep everything stealth. We also installed in at least one unmarked Camaro there also.
