POLICE edition charger!!!

Yeah you read that right....ran one from a stoplight (sorta of)

I've been out of town for a few weeks, working LONG days usually 12+ hours. So, one night after work I can't bare to go back to my trailer and watch fuzzy TV channels. So I decide to check out some of the local bars and possibly shoot some pool. Not many bars in a small town, so I was at one bar pretty much all night. Only had 3 or 4 beers the whole night. Around 1:30 I decide it's time to head "home". Streets are desserted. I come to a stoplight and there's a police package charger. He looks over at me, I look at him and nod. Light turns green we drive away like normal. Get to the next light and he's looking over. So I roll down the window and say, jokingly "that thing fast or what?" "wanna run 'em for pinks?" he says and he laughs. I tell him "oh no no, you're just looking to give me a ticket" he says "nah, I'll give you a pass" Still a little leery I say "uh...ok, on the next green" We're sitting at the intersection waiting for the light to cycle again. He's revving the hell outta that hemi, so I do the same. Light turns green and he smokes the tires until the traction control kicks in and he's off. I take off nice and easy hit the speed limit and thats as fast as I go. He stops half way to the next light and he's cracking up laughing and says "aww you're a chicken" waves and speeds away laughing.

I was at a shop that was prepping a Dodge Charger for the local PD. It had the interceptor package with black steel wheels, no bodyside moldings, ect. I opened the hood expecting to see a HEMI but there was just a 3.5L V6.

Some agencies are going with the V6 for some dumb reasons.

We got the Hemi's in our fleet
