I wasn't sure where this belonged exactly but I'm interested in what sort of Ghost Cars the local law enforcement use around your area. Like mostly they're Impala's and Crown Vic.'s here but there's a couple Chargers rolling around people have to watch out for. There used to be 2 '98 Camaros on patrol (fully marked however) which really brought people down a few pegs and a 2000 Millenium Edition Mustang which my Dad drove when he was in the force (RCMP).

Just sort of a thing I wonder about from time to time.

There are sooo many undercover cops around the berkshire mall here in Reading.  THey drive anything ... there is about 100+ stores in about a 2 mile area and from working at Sears for 3 years I got to see lots of people get busted by cops in unmarked cars of all sorts...

One in my town is a red jeep cherokee. In another town they have a minivan. The best is in the town of cicero they have a conversion van with Indiana plates on it, now that's the best undercover car.

The chargers are rumored to have a switch in them to switch one headlight off. That way driving at night you'd never suspect :)

Up in Roanoke they have a white and a red Bonneville that catch quite a few people. Down here the police force has a 2001 Mustang Mach 1 as (the only) part of its "Speed Patrol" unit.

The Illinois branch of FBI has a rare strippy Rasberry Z26 with hub caps.

There isn't much in the way of undercover cars around here. But I do remember my stepdad being pulled over on the way to St.Louis by a bright red Camaro Z28 with limo tint. The only cop car-ish things it had were two red and blue lights on the dash.

Around here they run intrepids, crown vics, and impalas.  The oddest "ghost car" I saw was  a chevy pickup about like mine that had someone pulled over, strobes were mounted behind the grill and in the tail lights.
