The Plot Thickens...

Well, looking back through the vehicle history, i noticed on all the receipts, it had the rego for the car when it was registered.. The car had personalised plates, with the owners initials then his birth date.

There are receipts for everything.. Services, from 10,000 to 80,000km's, clutch spring replacement, camber kit ($170! for the kit, both sides, and labour and tuning, it came to $350! was done at 80,000kays), clutch plate replacement, thrust bearing, etc etc.

So anyway, apart from the holes that have been covered up in the dash, there is no evidence to say it was a cop car. I know that it was a 5 speed from factory, as myford.com.au said so.. and i've never heard of cops having manuals..

The only other thing that could be, in relation to being a cop car, is that it was a detective/investogator etc that got it through the police force as his company/work car, and he had the radios, etc installed.

Anyone heard of cop cars (undercover) having personalised plates? Could the holes that have been covered up be from a mobile phone holder?

Cheers,
Yagz

I think youve been smoking the same stuff as Tommi was when he thought his wagon was a cop car.

Re: The Plot Thickens...

It's got the compliance plate OPT20, and the cop dash.. It definitely got the cop pack.

I figured out how to get that speedo feature too.. dunno how to use it, but i can get it to display 'speedo' and numbers that increase by 0.5..

Security car? They can order a cop pack on their fords?

Re: The Plot Thickens...

Aren't security cars tradtionally small, and cheap to run? why would they get an xr8..

never knew you could order a cop pack as an option. oh well, good to know.

Re: The Plot Thickens...

I dont understand all the fuss over an ex-cop car :/ A little longer in service and it would be as good as a taxi.

Who gives a toss over a dash that has smaller increments...lol
