So I finally retired in November after 35 years in law enforcement. Then I was made constable in my county. For those of you from other states, constables in our state do everything regular cops do, with the addition of having to serve papers in their respective precincts, and we are the only law enforcement allowed to arrest the sheriff. In any case, I get a paycheck and a vehicle maintenance check monthly with which to buy a patrol car or maintain one that I may already own. I have not gotten around to either yet and had to deal with a scumbag. He ended up riding to jail in my 2004 LS V8. He commented on the nice patrol car. Which got me to thinking. I have money to dedicate, why not? The old gal is getting up there with over 200000 on the clock. I have been told that either they cannot or should not re-build this engine, I don’t know if this is true, but what would be a good replacement if I cannot find one? Will the transmission need to be changed as well? What about the computers? I went to buy tires the other day and they were high, but I have 15 inch Ford wheels off a Crown Vic patrol car that I get free Cooper Cobra police tires for as long as they are used for work, does not matter how many I blow. Thought this would make a good thread because I have not seen a thread that talked about one of these as a patrol car.
