To be honest, if not for the trunk photo, I would hazard a guess that is a retired vehicle..

+1. I couldn't see the Phantom's till that picture either. I hate when slick tops don't have corner strobes (or any intersection warning) and when unmarked's have push bumpers.

Well since the OP went on what appears to be a hissy fit of sorts, I will give you a "non visual description"


Black CVPI with tinted windows, not new, but in nice condition. Pushbar on front, no strobes in the corner markers that I or anyone else could see. Also did not appear to have any forward interior/pushbar lights. Interior shot shows nice centre console with IIRC, smartsiren, some arrowstick controller (I think) a few blank plates, and something at the top but covered by steering wheel and photo angle. Hole in dash- looked like a trunk release switch removed-which made me suggest it was a retired fleet vehicle. (besides the driver seat worn, and the blank plates in the console)


Rear single small whip antenna, probably 800 or UHF, cutout of rear tint for Gen 1 arrowstick or warning bar. In the trunk a couple of sheriff shirts/ vest hanging on a "pickup truck" cargo bar, across the trunk. Police bag as well. Oh and a AR15 (?? sorry I don't know US weapons as well as CDN) on the trunk lid in a rifle holder.. No "standard" trunk tray that I could see, or anything else "standard" for a PD trunk. (flares, fire ext, pylons, etc)


Hopefully the OP decides to repost the images. It was a nice ride. Plain, but nice.

:roll: Kind of why I posted it in the member rides section instead of the install. Didnt think I needed pics of the light set up.


And no, you do not, but people will comment on your ride, regardless where you post it on this site. Many other members take it as constructive criticism or helpful (even if unwanted) advice.

I am so confused! The titel says take home sled, so I was expecting to see some reindeer, or husky dogs, or perhaps a 50's Merc. But ya'll are talking about a Crown Vic, and I know that is a car. So is this yet another term you pup's have mangled? The term sled for automotive use generally means a "leadsled" or slab styl 50's car. Sled can also mean a vehicle which is in poor shape and worth little or nothing.

I'm still holding out for the husky dogs...

So its a department issued fromer marked car that had been repainted black Big deal.. The guy was proud of it. Some whackers here just have to see what cool lights are in it.

To take up a little for the OP, I did see what looked like a full phantom on the rear deck and another up front...

I appreciate the support Respondcode3. Life is just too short and I dont have time for the people that live on this site and complain about everything they see. Have a great weekend.
