These pictures were sent in by Ret, Officer Del Rosario. I'm hearing the same thing from all the LAPD officers that I talk with and that is, it was the best job they ever had and they were living a dream. Thanks Del.
These pictures were sent by Ret. Officer Ted Oglesby. Ted was a lieutenant (Watch Commander) at Rampart and the story about the V.W. is as follows: Sgt. Sam Galluzzo (deceased) was the owner of the V.W. and he is shown with the car. Another sergeant, J.J. Kelley, owned a body and fender shop and told Galluzzo that he would give the old car a new paint job. When the car was returned to the station, it was a painted as you see it. Galluzzo had no idea that his car would look like that. What a great prank and a one of a kind Black & white. Thanks Ted.

Here's a YouTube of the LAPD that Officer Shawn of the VA state police sent me. I thought it would go good here. Thanks Shawn.
