I bought the car off of eBay a few years ago for $3800. The previous owner had replaced the original Stromberg(a.k.a. “Strangleberg”)with a single Weber side draft carburetor. The car was fun to drive-it kinda made me a celebrity of sorts at my former exalted place of work!lol

Hammer166 Crusty Information Officer
- Aug 18, 2007
At the family gathering for thanksgiving , I chatted with a family member that works for a county govt in Florida and their sheriffs dept leases the cop cars , for three year or 100,000 miles , whichever comes first .
maybe the revenue collection officers in the north east can get the three year old explorers from central Florida to replace their rusted out ones.
Leasing doesn’t work for everyone.
but a flood damaged car wouldn’t be any worse than the way the commenter were describing some of the rusted out cars .
That they were rusted so bad they were not safe to drive .
Most places ,if a flood is imminent, will withdraw the fire trucks and cop cars etc , so they don’t get damaged .
That’s usually how you know you better evacuate , when your friends at the fire department or sheriffs office tells you that they are withdrawing all
The fire trucks and ambulances to higher ground .
I think leasing is dumb , and can’t imagine why anyone would do it , but the person I talked to said they’ve tried owning them and leasing them and leasing them is easier and cheaper .
At the end of three years a new car shows up and they toss the keys to the old car to the leasing company , and don’t have to deal with storing the old cars and having an auction etc .

After reading this thread I've come to a couple conclusions while pondering this lack of police vehicles...
1. "Deford the police!" was funny. I can't thank the post twice so, it gets a mention here.
2. I like doughnuts.
Two doughnuts were hurt making this post. Glazed. An they were good.

Flat Earth Trucker Road Train MemberSirscrapntruckalot Thanks this.
But who’s going to work there?
Not many people here want a factory job
There have been billboards all over for the past several years with pretty decent starting pay jobs posted but still not enough help
Never mind….. I think they’ll find those who can just “walk” to work like they are walking to the US
