Just curious...

When referring to a police car is it:

"nine-charlie-one"

or

"nine-cee-one"

Or are both acceptable?

let's see a poll of how each person refers to a 9C1

Thanks,
Clem

nine Cee One...

My opinion...get a 94+...these big cars need the LT1 to motivate them... not to mention the interior and dash....

Thanks 4door,

Unfortunately, I don't have the budget that an LT1 car would require. Also, it's not going to be a racecar whatsoever. It's going to be for hauling the family around and occasional tow duty.

I'm looking for a good, solid, V8, rear drive vehicle with a good backseat for child seats to buckle into

Thanks for the info on the moniker...are we in agreeance that nine-cee-one is an acceptable term? That's the way I always say it to myself. I just didn't want to sound like a dork if I described it in person to another person who's "in the know."

Thanks,
Clem

nine-cee-one.

Also, it's not 9C-1 or 9-C1. Same way it isn't Z/28 (any more at least).
Nor is it LT-1; that engine is, from what I understand, 30 years old.

Just a little nit-picking. [img].gif[/img]

Right,

They're all the 3 digit RPO codes (or whatever the are, if not RPO). There's about a bazillion of them within GM. I know that from a little bit of experience working on a GM production floor.

I guess I thought I was always thinking of it as nine-cee-one and that that wasn't right, but apparently that's what everyone else calls them. Now that I think of it, GM would definitely have used "Cee". The only people who would've called it "charlie" are the folks who drove them, and I'm sure they didn't even know what 9C1 meant (most of them).

Later
Clem
