OK OK I SAW seen Illinois State Police white marked 1995 1996 LT1 cruiser in action on I290 westbound earlier today

very heavy traffic so I had to pay attention to it, and not the cruiser as it was pulling duty in the left median.
Strange thing it has markings very similar to what this one looks like here below. Definitelly one of the last of the breed...

Long live the 9c1.

Saw an Indy city cop driving one a month or so ago too... I almost went speeding by him thinking "they don't use those any more" but saw the lights in it at the last minute...

I see a couple of 9C1s still on the road here in central IL - every year at the state fair there are several of them out, too. Logan County still has a few in service as well. Every time I ask thee when they're gonna sell, they say they have no plans to replace them...

The state of IL runs Royal Purple in the state police cars. Coincidence that the cars last forever? I think not.

Yup. I was doing a transport in Indy and saw an in-service 95 or 96 9C1. At first I thought it might have been handed over to the Civillian Volunteer Patrol (cadets) but it still had the normal IPD markings on the side and a lightbar.

was it the updated scheme?



I dig those too...



right by me there was a fully marked ISP with a lightbar, spotlight, cb antenna on the side, and a few on the trunk, super clean car, no rust at all.
I never took a pic of it as the weather was always ****TY. Did not see the car for a few days, it was replaced by mid late 90's CVPI, then no CVPI for a week. After that one of the new body CV.
Oh well. anotherone bites the dust.

years ago when I had a blue 9c1 I got into a small fender bender - was rearended on Harlem and I55
We went to the state police just blocks away, and they had a 95,96 iddling for the night. It was cold as hell and they were keeping it running in case of a high speed pursuit.
I peaked and it had around 140k on the odo.

Does anyone have video clips of 9C1's in police/gov. training? I see clips on TV sometimes.

I know Joliet had a FEW :eek: 9C1s in service as of late last summer. One was an unmarked light adriatic blue '95 or '96 </drool>. They also had a couple of white marked patrol cars too.

I took a trip down to Columbus, Ohio, last weekend... I have a few cop/Caprice references..

1. I was about 20 minutes into the journey and entering a nearby town notorious for its speed traps. I'd gotten a good tune going on my iPod and started cranking the volume, really getting into it, right when I entered the 35 mph zone.. AT 50 mph. And there was a cop sitting right there. I had no choice but to hit the brakes like a fool. The car lurched and I probably looked like I was driving high on crack or something. The cop didn't care. I've gotten away with so much speeding/dumb driving, my car must be permanently off the cop radar.

2. Cruising on 71 south, a white '91-'92 Caprice passed me. We had identical rusty quarter panels. I thought to myself, that's what I look like. Just sailing down the road cool and free in a big fat happy bath tub with warm as hell heater, comfortable as hell seat, and those inimitable tail lights. Hells yes people! I just love to see someone else driving a civilian 91/92 Caprice. I love the honest and somehow stealthy white ones, and the clean fast silver ones and those shining light blue ones.

3. I saw a 95/96 Caprice in service (law enforcement) on 71 south into Columbus. I guess it was highway patrol? I was going too fast to tell.
