As a cop who spend a lot of his 40 hour work week in a patrol car, this isn't my experience (or anyone I work with). Capability, comfort, visibility, and carrying all my stuff trumphs looks or styling. Chargers? Visibility sucks. The Taurus isn't much better.

(I'm sure there are hundreds [maybe tens] of stories like this, but..) My college roommate and I picked up a Dreamcast and a bunch of games on the cheap, right when the system went defunct. I had completely forgotten about Power Stone until you mentioned it here. God that was fun. Many an hour was wasted on Power… » 3/24/15 12:08pm 3/24/15 12:08pm

Good write-up, Stef. You are correct, violating a civil protective order is a criminal offense.

A few months back, after a feature on the 500E was posted on this site, I saw one parked in the garage where I work. Recognizing the car, I was excited! An elderly gentleman got behind the wheel, started it up, and OH GOD THAT SOUND! I thought the building was going to collapse, and I wouldn't have minded, it was… » 12/19/14 2:24am 12/19/14 2:24am

Get a tripod, longer exposure and adjust aperture accordingly. Or play around with an off-camera flash to bring up the light levels during a very long exposure. There's a ton of possibilities with even an entry level DSLR. » 8/10/14 10:53pm 8/10/14 10:53pm

Congrats. Ignore anyone who says the fumes are bad for you. Suck it in and don't worry too much about catching a DUI; the high only lasts about a minute, so by the time you hit the road you should be good to go. » 8/10/14 3:07pm 8/10/14 3:07pm
