Volvo police cars (was saab)
Yes, its true. My little town (Falls Church, VA) had ovlov police cars
for many years. It was almost appropriate, as we are inside the DC
beltway and the majority of residents are politically of the "volvo
democrat" frame of mind.
One of the bigger businesses in town is the Volvo dealership owned by the
father of VIrginia's Lt. Governer, Don Beyer Sr. Beyer Volvo always made
sure that their bid was lower than the FOrd and Chevy dealers' so we had
Volvo 240 patrol cars as well as an odd 740 or two.
One of the local cops told me he hated having to drive a Volvo. Even
though our highest speed limit is 30mph, no self respecting cop wants to
ride in a 2 liter 4 cylinder tank. Now they all drive Crown Vics (except
for an Explorer or two), and I imagine they are all happier.
