Saw a lot of gen 5s the last few days, several Gen 6's of various trim level, including a twin to Dave's (DJE624's) white SHO that is parked in the same spot every day in downtown De Pere, I'm always in traffic and can never get a picture.

Saw this behind the shop at work.

New Interceptor Sedan, unmarked model, had the console and the whole deal.

Speaking of police cars.. how about some unmarked Gen 4.5s? My car used to blend right in with these. My dad works at this building so I park there from time to time... now my car stands out.

You can see the antenna on the trunk. They also have strobes on the top of the back window, in the turn signal area, and behind the grille. They're also in the reverse lamp and tail lamp too. Police radios inside too.

Too bad the other lot wasn't around. They have a spot where they have about 30 of these unmarked cars locked up. 2005-2007 Tauruses and 2008+ Impalas. 15-20 of the cars were bulls of all colors.. all with hubcaps.

Five Hundred Limited, I believe.

This picture is a shame, because I had to go out to the mine that day, and there were about seven or eight Sables and Tauruses (including a Gen 5 Sable Premier) out there. But I wasn't an authorized visitor, so I had to have an escort, which meant I couldn't take the pictures I wanted. Got just this one.

The Gen 4/4.5 cars are terrible for real police work though. Not near enough power or strength. Green Bay has a few like that, they use them as speed trap cars, park along the road like a parked car, you go speeding by and they got you. They got one of my friends with a Gold Gen 4.5, he was super confused. All of a sudden there was a plain Taurus behind him with 2 leds in front and 2 in back pulling him over.

I think Ford should have put the regular Tarurs grill in the Unmarked Interceptors to really blend them in.

PI Grille costs less! LOL. I'm sure it was an option. The taurus is so much more expensive than the crown vic was so they have to find ways to make it less expensive. Just look at it, it looks so much cheaper than a normal taurus SE.

According the the Ford PI website there is no option for a chrome grill. There are several packages for the following options, Bold options are the Police Interior Upgrade package, 12P for sedan and 65U for Utility.

Wheel covers*

Console

Carpet/Cloth seats

No Police Interceptor emblems*

I guess the 3.7L is now standard on all Sedans too, 3.5L is optional as FWD only.

Interesting how the put the 3.7L in the PI's but not in the consumer. Guess they don't want them to compete with the lincoln.

Nice Gen 5 Taurus outside the condo! He's pulled into two parking spots and can't park obviously. The van next to him did the same thing because he had to...

2000 Taurus Wagon with Sable rims. I never understood that.

It is funny how the picture ended up being more centered on my car than the wild one. . . I was quickly running (going into the hospital lol) and my gf was screaming at me to hurry up. She was so pissed I even paused for a moment to take the pic LOL.
