                    1969 Satellite in Michigan


OK I'll start. My name is Michael and I live in South West Michigan. This is my 1969 LAPD replica Adam-12 Belvedere. It has a newly rebuilt 383 super commando engine. I do as many car shows as I can including the New York City Antique Police car show and the Emergency vehicle show in Chicago as well as the Woodward cruise in Detroit. Lots of waves and camera's out windows while driving down the highway to the shows.

                           1977 Plymouth Fury - Arizona

Steve Bolander is a retired San Francisco police officer and a retired Department of Homeland Security Law Enforcement Specialist who now lives in Prescott Valley Arizona. Steve's main hobby is restoring and replicating vintage police cars. In addition to this 1977 Fury LAPD "shop" that he recently completed, he's also creating a vintage Arizona Highway Patrol car from a 1973 Plymouth Satellite.

Great looking car Steve nice job! I have always liked this body style. Maybe I need to start looking at doing a second one from season seven?

Nice job Ken. It looks really nice and I think this is the first 1970 body style I've seen done.



                                             1971 Satellite

OK even though this is not a black and white I wanted to add it in because it was an original in service LAPD detective car. Here's the story:


                     

This is Shop number 82-635, dual purpose LAPD detective car. Owner, Keith Jackson, Sunset Beach, CA.

Proud owners 
                                 George & Carole March 
                                       Port Angeles, WA.


This vehicle was purchased from a private party in Kirkland, WA approx. Summer, 1997. It was turquoise and white, in excellent physical condition with only one small dent that was easily fixed. We also received the original sales receipt and all of the work that was performed on it. It originally came from Missouri. It is a stock 265 engine and 2-speed power glide transmission.

Restoration began in early 2001 which included a complete engine rebuild. Everything was completed in 2003. Research for authenticity was provided by former LAPD officers and a thorough internet search. Authentic Los Angeles seals, can lights (ordered from B & M Sirens, Santa Fe Springs, CA), Super Chief sirens, shop number decals (patterned after Venice Division) and radio are all period correct. We also had special E-Plates made from The Earl Hayes Press, Sun Valley, CA.

Deputy Scott Johanson of the Allegan County Sheriff's Dept. (MI) spotted me on my way home and stop by to check out my car. He grew up watching the show and got a first hand feel of what it was like for Malloy. By the way....Scott's real on duty radio call sign is... Adam-12! How cool is that! Thanks for stopping Scott.
