I am not sure about other parts of the country, but in the metro Atlanta area most police cars are Ford Crown Vic's. About a month ago I saw that the city of Kennesaw had a few Dodge Intrepids in their fleet. I spoke with one officer who said that they would be changing all the cars over to the Intrepid. Also, she said that next year, they would be coming with Hemi's in them.
I'm wondering if any anyone has heard of the Hemi Intrepid, or is this a special car for the police.

Well the Intrepid Police Package ran for three years from 2002-2004 model years. Currently there is no more production of the Intrepid (LH platform) because of the new rear-wheel drive platform named the LX... a.k.a 2005 Dodge Magnum and 2005 Chrysler 300 Series! The biggest motor to come in the Intrepid was the 3.5L HO V-6 that had 255 horsepower, which was the more in the Intrepid Police Package. However, the new 2005 Dodge Magnum RT (not R/T) will have the 5.7L HEMI V-8 rated at 340 horsepower and 390 ft-lbs of torque and a top speed of 153mph! There is no word about a police package yet, but I assume by 2007 we will see one.

So her department will not have any Intrepids powered by a HEMI motor. Sorry!
That was a horrible movie with a GREAT, LONG chase scene. If anyone out there has never seen the original "Gone In 60 Seconds", then go rent or buy it. Skip the first mind numbingly boring 45 minutes or so and just watch the final chase scene. The final chase scene was filmed uncut, some of the things that happen were not supose to , but they kept the cameras rolling. The chase, I believe lasts around 45 minutes or so and you'll never see a better one.[sm=smiley20.gif]
Almost all of the Police Interceptors are 4-door Coronets and Furys. There is also quite a few Mopar in scenes... like when he jumped the accident in the middle of the road, one of the cars was a yellow 1970 Plymouth Cuda, they also stole a 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T which they totalled, as well as a green 1971 Dodge Charger... and many others...
It is. Eleanor is in this and it is a Mustang. A good majority of the police and backround cars are Mopars. When he first steals Eleanor the owner chases him in his other car, a '71 Satellite Sebring. At one point you see a couple test driving a '71 Roadrunner as well.
Well you guys do know, that the guy who drove Eleanor (Toby Hilicki), was the director, writer, did all of the stunts (which were on real streets, w/ normal people, which they had no clue about a flim being made), and also owned every car in the movie that was wrecked, except two Cadillacs from that dealership. He also has another movie out, called the "Junkman". However, he died while making the sequal to Gone in 60 Seconds, when he was getting ready to get into his car before a stunt, where he was suppose to go underneath a water tower and the tower was suppose to crash to the ground... the tower fell on his car, killing him and another man.
His wife Denise produced the modern version w/ Nicholas Cage.
I was at a Who concert at the Palace in Detroit a few years back, and I believe it was the Warren County Sherrif Dept was heading up the traffic direction and security before and after the concert. They all had Intrepid units. I had just gotten my 96 Intrepid, and was drooling. Those Intrepid Units looked so beautiful in the crisp cool air with their blue and red strobes going. They had the 7 lights aranged in the V on the top of the car instead of the light bar. REALLY nice![8D]

I know this topic is old, but I just wanted to say that I saw a 2003 dodge intrepid .. with the 5.7 L hemi, but I cannot find any information on it? Yes, I took pictures, they are on my other computer, I will make an effort to get them put on if anyone cares to see them?
