They did a bunch of LACO Sheriff's cars as well. The rebuilds extended their use in the field for several years and they are good cars to find. Bates is also a good place to take your car when you need some help.

The white trunk and hood are not CHP or LACO Sheriff paint schemes. Bates did refurbishing for a lot of different agencies as well as some AZ and NV cars. I guess if they can find the records for yours you will know for sure which one it was. Nice car. I liked it with the SS wheels though. They are a handling improvment as well in my opinion. :)
