Hot Pursuit


Walking home tonight, I passed the Ohio Statehouse . . . and this sweet ride.  Two Ohio Highway Patrol officers were checking it out, so I asked if it was a new prototype.  No, they said — it’s the spoils of taking down a drug dealer.  He was driving this souped-up Camaro and carrying drugs when he was stopped and arrested and the car was seized as part of the process.  The OHP decided to turn it into a patrol car and use it for marketing purposes, and tonight it is going to be the subject of a photo shoot.

In Ohio, at least, patrol cars have gotten progressively cooler over the years and have come a long way from the boxy Sheriff Buford T. Passer rigs with the red light on top.  This beauty takes OHP coolness to new heights.
