NYPD Adds Dodge Muscle Car to Its Fleet

By TOM HAYS, Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK - The New York Police Department is adding some muscle to its car fleet: the 2006 Dodge Charger, whose 1969 model is best remembered for outrunning a hapless sheriff in "The Dukes of Hazzard."

The department plans to buy 15 police versions of the car for a pilot program that will begin this summer, officials said Thursday.

This reminds me of one of those old Marvel Comics' What If comic books.

"What if the General Lee was driven by Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane?"

I doubt the show would have lasted very long. "Aw shoot, Rosco. How do you expect us cousins to have any fun with you terrorizin' us with your lightnin' fast VE-hicle?"

Vic Mackey and the Strike Team have been driving a Charger on The Shield this season. Life imitates art.
