Went to a PBA Car Show and a chase broke out

Post by hdebo on Tue Sep 06, 2011 7:31 pm

This past Sunday I along with 4 other club members went to a Police Benefit Car show in North Haven CT. We had a great time as it felt good to get the cars out after trying to put the hurricane behind us.

Here are our birds that attended

My 79


Rick Holloway's 71


Super Duty Dave Wilcox's 73


And the two that pertain to the story

John Astarita's 81


Brian Ripley's 78


There were close to ten vintage police cars on display from various departments from around the country. A police officer approached us and told us of a police parade around the show grounds that will take place. But to have a little fun he asked us if they could have the 78 as a car in pursuit, we of course offered the 81 also as it was the car used in part 2. He told us after we get to the end of the field we should go for a spin up RT40 (around 3 miles round trip) in speed limit pursuit with sirens and light flashing. How could we pass this up. Here is a small clip I took riding shotgun in Johns 81. Sorry about the black and white as it must have gotten hanged on my phone in all the excitement.

Thanks for the post. Great photos of some great police cars!

I love to see vintage police cars! These cars were modified performance sedans that packed some real power under the hoods.

I have listed a few of my favorite web sites for old police cars.

Sorry it took so long to post these. But I hope every one Enjoys them.
I took them with my iPhone. Would have been better with a Real camera.

Let's get them rolling.


And the return trip.
