Police Cars at US consulate in Jeddah

I know there was a really bad attack at the US consulate in Jeddah and my condolences go out to those people and their familes.

But these cars in this pic from Jeddah look like VT Commodores.

Perhaps I'm wrong, the those lights look very familiar.

Heres the link to the news story.

Over 2,000 units of Holden's incremental vehicle export volume last year came via police fleets in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Holden fits left-hand drive versions of the Commodore and Statesman/Caprice to order with extras such as push bars, flashing warning lights, internal screens, handcuff restraints and extra wiring, and they are shipped from Holden's Elizabeth plant in South Australia as finished products.This year Holden has already placed tenders for a similar volume of specially-fitted vehicles with the Saudi police.




Chevrolet Lumina (Commodore) sedans, wagons and luxury V8-powered Chevrolet Caprice sedans (based on Statesman/Caprice) are the top-selling GM models in the Middle East. Last year, exports of Chevrolet Lumina LS sedans and wagons, LTZ and SS sedans totalled 9,400. As Holden predicted, exports of Chevrolet Caprice LS, LTZ and SS models, at 9,790 units, exceeded the domestic Statesman/Caprice total of 6,589, making this the first locally-produced Holden model to achieve higher volume internationally than it does at home.


Actually it looks more like this car

Re: Police Cars at US consulate in Jeddah

Your going home in the back of a Statesman....clap, clap, ....clap, clap, clap, .......clap, clap, clap, clap, ......clap, clap.


More seriously, condolences to the families for their loss from the disgustingly low, unprevoked and cowardly attack.
