Friend and I got this puppy running again today(took us yesterday and today). Went through the fuel system, changed the oil, and put a new battery in. Fired up.

It's an 84 Oregon State Police impala. We are going to have it all finished with lights and decals by Aug 1st.

Very coool.

But, uh, WTH is sticking out of the driver's door in the first pic?

The head of a man being attacked, and frankly beaten into the ground, by camera blur.

Are you able to see the original poster's e-mail address being a moderator? Maybe send them an e-mail saying people are interested in what happened! I know I turned off my e-mail notifications as I was getting too many at the time.

Not to go off topic but go rhino has put their Impala push bars on clearance on certain ones a buddy of mine bought one for his recent Impala before they stop doing them for under $100 plus shipping hell of a steal right now if it's still there..

Actually it appears as though they sold out of the last of their clearance bars and I didn't know that sorry they had quite a few there.

Probably better off that way. I would have to get another Impala to use it.
Well since the nose end of it is pretty much a brick nose why not go with the crown Vic one I think it's got the height for the bumper on it for the lower end you just might need to find a different connection point for it you might be able to have somebody make up some brackets for you of quarter inch steel and bend them to where you need to tomato up to the go rhino bar...
