    Default Photos of Vintage Police Car Show

    5th Annual Vintage Police Car Show
    10 am - 5 pm; also June 12
    @ New York City Police Museum, 100 Old Slip

    Q: "Car 54, where are you?" A: At 100 Old Slip - this weekend, anyway. Also on hand for the Police Museum's 5th Annual Car Show are vintage squad cars from New York City and elsewhere, as well as a replica of the car from the tv series, Adam 12, and a host of other classic vehicles. Almost 50 cars will be on display, and car owners will be on hand to show off their prize possessions and answer questions.

    Here is a pic of the Battery Maritime Building and the newly completed Staten Island Ferry Trminal, taken from the ferry to Governors Island

    When I left New York for overseas military duty, the NYPD squad cars were the green-black-white Plymouths (foreground in first photo).

    On returning, my friends took me to the city, and when I saw one of those bright blue models, I said, "What the hell is that?"

    BTW, the Maritime Building looks spectacular. I hope the city follows through with plans to move the underpass portal and create a plaza in front.

    Great pics ...

    The restoration of the Maritime building is a great thing, except for the terrible mustard yellow paint job. The previous color (mix of blue greens / greens) was so much better -- the whole building looked like patinated copper.

    I'm hoping the current colors are just an "interim" situation...

    Anyone have any info on this?

    The color scheme is historically accurate to the 1908 building.

    Zippy, what year(s) was that? I love hearing first-hand accounts about what the city was like then compared to now.

    I've converted this photo to B&W to help jog your memory to maybe come up with a good story!

    Nice vintage police cars. Reminds me of the vintage speeding tickets I used to get when the speed limit was 55.

    Very nice post. Don't know why, but I have a soft spot in my heart for a Plymouth Fury in uniform
