There back!!!!

GM anounced they are reintroducing the 9C1 rear wheel drive V-8 powered four door sedan police car. There isn't enough demand to justify selling a rear wheel drive Impala to the public, so they are reworking Holdens (Zeta platform).

suprised that the cops have not all went to all-wheel drive. I never had one, but it sounds to me like that is the way to go.

I've been a fan of Carbon Motors cop cars since the first one I saw.

This is the same car as the discontinued Pontiac G8, but on the slightly longer wheelbase Commodore platform.
