I can't tell you the last time I saw an all-red lighting setup on a police vehicle in Michigan.. aside from MSP. Great picture.That Southfield Blazer is awesome!
Came across a picture of a Spring Lake/Ferrysburg police Caprice, which I never knew they had. They had CVs as far back as I personally remember, and just recently the Ottawa County Sheriffs department took over their area and the SL/F pd was ended.View attachment 149203
Here's the pic; it's part of the Conservation Officer Academy, which is held at MSP's academy. This was probably classroom portion on traffic stops....
I saw a picture on the MI DNR facebook page a few days ago that showed a sealed beam Unity on the roof of a current body MSP Charger, but it isnt a picture of the car, just of a bunch of DNR officers. Just happen to see the Unity on it and was happy it didnt have the LED retrofit in it!
That's pretty close to an accurate statement!That Vision SLR isn't period correct on a vintage collectible like that
I would say most of the 70s and all of the 80s. I believe1989 is when the black-striped Michigan map with Sheriff's star debuted.Just wanted to know if anyone from Michigan could tell me how long the counties used the black paint on the hood/roof/trunk for the sheriff cars, was looking at the old Eaton county cars.

Gah. The ugly 91/92 9C1 Caprice, aka the SCUD. At least the 93s started looking a bit better with the better designed yet still ugly taillights and an open wheel well. Thing is.. I loved the Caprice anyway. So rooooomy. That was a full size sedan, not the silly ugly looking Taurus things that are out there now.
