It’s a former Wichita Police Department P71, bought from them at auction with 117k miles on the clock. When I got it the AC didn’t work great and the front wheels were bent. So, the fronts became the rears and the AC was fixed and now it cruises like a champ.

At some point it’ll probably get some all-terrain tires and maybe an LSD, but as it sits it’s a ton of fun for the money.
