    MA - Massachusetts State Police, privately owned Bucik
    The colors, French and Electric blue are correct and matched the uniform of the Massachusetts State Police. The colors were first adopted for the agency's uniforms in 1933 and later for the patrol cars in 1940. The door seal is correct for 50s era vehicles but, the word Massachusetts was never spelled out on the trunk lid or anywhere else except on the door seal. Throughout the 50s, the MSP used Ford vehicles, exclusively. Also, Throughout the 40s, 50s & 60s the MSP used only 2 Dr Sedans and did not adopt the 4 Dr Sedan until 1968. The are no photographic records of Buick vehicles ever being used. Lastly, the overhead revolving police light was never red and always blue. None the less, this vehicle is a fine tribute to America's first statewide law enforcement agency established 16 May 1865.

    I know, I'd rather have the small hubcaps than these. I hope Ford improves the looks of the full size hub caps next year.

    The "black and white"- sharp, professional, authoritative and easily identifiable. This department has good taste. Nice photo!

    Ford Five Hundred, a front-wheel drive vehicle, can compete against the Chevy Impalas, which is also front-wheel drive. (Ford Five Hundred also offers all-wheel drive car.) Ford Police Interceptors might be out of production in between 2009-2012. If the Ford stops making powerful Ford Police Interceptors, Ford should produce Ford Five Hundred police cars.

    This is an interesting picture. I wonder why the Walpole police department selects Ford Five Hundred, a front-wheel drive vehicle. Is this front-wheel vehicle or all-wheel drive? I also wonder why the Walpole police department does not pick Ford Police Interceptor, Dodge Charger, or Chevy Impala? How many does the Walpole police department have Ford Five Hundred police cars? All-wheel drive version of Ford Five Hundred police cars are effective when the road conditions are snowy or icy.

    What bothers me even more than the Fast Trax is PDs that put "Police" and other decals on the trunk of low-profile cruisers. You might as well just put a light-bar on it if your going to give it away from far away. And you might as well use a light-bar if your going to use a Fast Trax.

    Yeah, increased safety/visibility by using yellow/lime cars was a fad for a few years in the seventies. I remember the Revere, MA PD had lime cars with white roofs. Fortunately, most PDs now use improved reflective graphics instead of unconventional paint jobs. Numerous agencies in MA have recently switched to "black and whites" with modern graphics.
