    Chicago detectives William Murphy, left, and Owen D. Kennelly practiced springing from a moving squad car with riot and machine guns in July 1939. They were preparing for the Police and Fire Thrill Show at Soldiers' Field.

    I always liked this shot of a Michigan State Police Fury, at Speed with the shotgun Radar out the window, there is even what looks to be a 73-77 Buick Century Wagon in it. Notice the front and rear Bumper Fillers are not painted Michigan State Police Blue. Michigan State Police Fury Aug 19 1976.jpg

    Yeah the fillers were silver (argent) same on Ford quite often when they painted the car a non factory color. I always like that blue.
