You're welcome.

It's actually a pretty neat vehicle. The local sheriff's office ordered two that just came in at our local dealership, along with three of the new Interceptor sedans (read Taurus). Several of the local agencies running these have them painted up in black and white and they look pretty sharp.

I'm not sure what we're going to yet. We've still got several Crown Vics that haven't reached the required replacement mileage. I think our new Chief wants to go with Chargers but several of us are trying to talk him into the Taurus in AWD. With the limited amounts of snow we usually get, the AWD could be a great alternative to having to maintain SUVs in the fleet so the patrol folks will have something to drive in inclement weather. The new Taurus AWD Interceptor could literally kill two birds with one stone.

On another note, I saw that the Alaska State Troopers are now using the Taurus Interceptors. It was on a new episode of AST the other night.
