Let's play a game.
In Honolulu, Cops can drive whatever the shit they want to on the job as long as it doesn't have "a souped up engine," racing stripes and custom rims. Only if they choose to, and they get paid if they use their personal car.
If you were a cop in Honolulu, what would you use as your patrol car?
It doesn't say anything about age, so a 9c1 Caprice would be awesome. I'm pretty sure that the overwhelming majority of these have been long since retired. Even I get happy when I see an '03 Crown Vic still being used by State Troopers.
Then I'd have this also. I'd personally have to go with automatic. My apologies.
