They finally caught up with me

Spotted in town today – another Tennessee girl a long way from home. The decal on the side said Memphis Sheriff, which I don’t think is a thing. The Sheriff is a county force, so it should be Shelby County Sheriff’s office. Which is at odds with the Highway Patrol decal, a whole ‘nother thing.

This site tells me Oldsmobiles were rarely used as cop cars. And this Flickr photo of the exact same car identifies it as a 1975 Oldsmobile Delta 88.

I agree with the photographer. This isn’t a police car, it’s a “police car” – my grandma drove nothing but Delta 88s.

Is there enough petrol over there to run that thing?

180 HP 350 4 barrel (5.8 litres)
Aren’t they afraid the government will set up a council row house in the back seat?

Heh. I can’t see a big Olds without Elwood’s voice in my head…”new Oldsmobiles are in early this year!”

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
