The ultimate high performance badge for cars, the legendary POLICE INTERCEPTOR  The Police Interceptor package is the definitive addition to any vehicle, and stands for high performance, durability and strength.  This legendary police-only package includes high performance pursuit engine, heavy duty suspension, tires and electronics.   Here you will find video and photographs as well as information on the Police Interceptor.

 

Police Camaro Information

The Camaro was introduced as a retail car in 1967 and as a special service package police car in 1991.  The Camaro set performance records during Michigan State Police testing for acceleration, top speed, braking and road course lap times.  The Camaro has been the highest performing police or special service vehicle in the history of police cars.   While you may be driving a Corvette with a top speed of 160+ mph the Camaro Police Package has been tested at 162 mph.   And, no matter how fast your car may be, it's not going to outrun their  Motorola Radios or chopper.

NOTICE: In upcoming weeks and months I will be releasing some new safety ideas viable for law enforcement and EMS personnel.  A brief synopsis of each with a link to a full page version will be included.


 

Michigan State Police Vehicle Speed Tests Year 2000

I've had a few suggestions for the speed tests that I will incorporate in upcoming weeks. A few people have stated they have been up to 140 in their Crown Vic's and I believe it is due to an enhanced chip in the car but would like to know for sure. I will find out.   How many visitors have been up to 140 in a Crown Vic?  Comments/Requests page link at the base of all pages.

From quickest to slowest, for the year 2000 they are:

  1. Chevy Camaro (5.7L SFI) in stick or automatic.
  2. Ford Police Inceptor (4.6L DOHC SFI) which is a Crown Vic.
  3. Chevy Impala (200 HP 3.8L V6) replaces the Caprice.
  4. Volvo S70 T5 (2.3L PFI Turbo) sedan or Wagon.
  5. Ford Expedition (5.4L) 4WD
  6. Ford Explorer (4.0L) - 2WD
  7. Jeep Cherokee (4.0L) 2WD or 4WD

Times are in seconds.

Survey: Has anyone heard of a 1997 or newer Camaro or any Chevrolet Law Enforcement Vehicle that has caught fire as a result of being struck by another vehicle, particularly a high speed rear end collision, and especially those that ended in the driver being hurt or killed.  I would like to ascertain who provides a model that is less likely to burn and appreciate any information and will post results here.

Click here to submit info:  Submit Chevy Police Vehicle Fire Information - Please include city/state/month/year of incident if possible.   (To date, 2 months later, still no mails about Chevy Police vehicles burning.)  

 

Up and coming is the Chevrolet Police Interceptor Impala

Although the Police Model of the 2006 Impala is currently only a 6 cylinder, Chevrolet is producing the new Chevrolet Impala SS for 2006 that has close to the same engine as my 1998-02 Camaro with some nice added features and great mileage.  Too bad it is front wheel drive but it is a top performer keeping pace with the Camaro up to 130 mph, at which point the chip configuration will come into play.  I would be pressing for the SS Model myself, hopefully Chevrolet will make that happen.  It is 430 pounds heavier than the Camaro and has 303 hp versus the Camaro's 320 and is a real powerhouse.  The width of the Impala doors makes me a little nervous in recent years with side impacts.  Careful attention to side impact safety crash tests should clarify.

 POLICE INTERCEPTOR

Police Interceptor Camaro Versus BMW M3 at 125 plus

Camaro Interceptor Pursuit Tip:  When traveling in a Camaro and traveling between 90 and 160, my personal suggestion is that you adjust your seat so both legs can rest on the floor and gas pedal and put the lowest part of your thigh bone against the steering wheel, with steering wheel tilted down to lowest or second lowest position, depending on your height.  Doing so allows you to apply pressure and it acts as a damper, just like steering with your knees for a second while your hands are busy.  (For some this is common knowledge but for others it is not and unless you set the steering wheel tilt to a lower position it might not occur to you that you can do this.)  The faster the speed the tighter the steering - then if you have to react to something, you won't be able to jerk the wheel right or left as much such as in the video above, and it reduces any play at all in the steering, or if you run over something flying off the suspects car your path stays steadier.   Allow your leg(s) to steady your steering at highest speeds to provide a level of stability beyond normal.  In the video the officer tried to avoid a suspect veering at him while beside him at 125 plus, which would have been fine at 60 mph but at 125-160, you don't want to jerk the wheel at all.  Seems like second nature but for many it is not.  Your reactions at 60 and 160 are vastly different, or should be.  Same as a Corvette.  The good thing is that Camaro's are very wide, and even sliding at 100 they tend to stay level, not rolling or flipping.   I think we need steering damping that is variable speed on our performance vehicles; the higher the speed the tougher/tighter it is to steer.  Of course you could still jerk the wheel hard and make a hard turn, but it will be more stable feeling this way.  I would be interested to know if any car company has put variable mile per hour speed steering damping in a production car if anyone knows.  I searched and found them for motorcycles.  Comment links at bottom of each page.  Also, a week before I turned 16 I flipped a '76 Ford Maverick over multiple times while power sliding in a field at about 70.  The problem was my front right tire, leading the slide, caught a tree stump that had been cut off at about 4 inches.  The car was a year old, never wrecked and was totaled.   Amazing how difficult a 4" stump can be to see sliding sideways at 70 mph.   The moral to this story - make sure your Highway Department removes stumps near medians and roadways in your city state.

Street Racing Laws need to be changed to where all participants proven to be involved in the race lose their vehicles for 90 days for a first offense, permanently on a second offense.  And they pay reasonable storage charges to the city.  Nearly every race facility in America now has nights for the Public to race their own vehicles.  Take it to the track - keep it off the streets.   Or lose your car. Same as someone running from the police in their own vehicles - automatic forfeiture.  Hope we see this before 2007!  If you believe in it promote the concept in your community.
