My friend from Vegas knew about this story about a couple of months ago, and shared it with me. If he would have only changed the name of Police on the side to say something else. He did it for his kid, but he could have just wrote Barricade or something on the side other than Police and he would have never had these problems. Then again, he is now on yahoo, for the whole world to see, hmmmm. I wish they would also show the guy who has made Prowl out of a Datzun Z car, and I know AJ Alverez of the Botcon staff and Cybercon fame has a Tracks car with the Autobot flames.

well all over the world has seen it. this is what i do im my school hours. this is just like that peterbuilt custom of optimus prime that was on ebay. the one thing missing is the over riders that should be on the bumper but that might get him pulled over really!

HEY!!! Let me be the first to welcome you to the wonderful world of news posting Sabrblade! (and getting ripped if another site posted a given story months earlier and you actually didn't notice!!! Oh the SHAME of it all!! ;)

It actually makes for an interesting discussion question. Does anyone out there drive a car that's a replica of a Transformer? I have a silver SUV, w/ an Autobot symbol on the bumper. It's the closest I could get to R.I.D. X-Brawn: the oldest of the 3 "car robot *brothers*." :) Too bad the series, (U.S.)toy and character sucked so bad! I bought it before the (US) series/toys arrived.

Unfortunately, it's not quite time for an upgrade yet. My next car will have to be a silver Pontiac Solstice! (a perfect "family car." :)

lol percepter actually it was our very own that broke this story way back in august! :)

And heres a shot of my "whip" (that is what the kids are calling it these days right?) i also have customized my steering wheel with a steel decepticon insignia impeded where the dodge ram symbol used to be.

:) lol! Yeah I know, but we have to cut the guy a little slack. He's a rookie after all and we don't want to scare him away too quickly right?! :) Or, well, maybe not!? H.E. maybe you should come up w/ some sort of 'hazing' program for the newbies! :) To see if they're thick skinned enough! :) Let the skin thickening begin! :)

LOVE the car pix! I guess I am too out of touch. Does "whip" mean your "wheels" your "ride" your car?! :P

Yeah, now I remember this story. I just saw it on Yahoo! and though it was another guy with the same idea. Plus, I wasn't sure if it was this site that I first heard the story from, or if it was one of the other ones I go to. I go to several.

o man.. as cool as that is i see one problem: BARRICADE IS NOT A MUSTANG! he is a saleen.

That is one of the coolest custom jobs I have ever seen.

Hmm you might have something there Perceptor. Welcome to the party Saborblade!

And Autobutt,
i see where your issue is there but, if your going to split hairs Barricade is a Mustang. He officially a "Ford Saleen Mustang Police Cruiser" and yes i understand Saleen is not affiliated with Ford and such but thats what he is.

well maybe i should i have rephrased my sentance into saying "Barricade is not a Ford." its funny i remember this one youtube exaplaining y hes not in any way connected to Ford it said that Ford did not want their mustang to be the bad guy in Transformers.

Now that's more of a controversy than the Janet Jackson Super Bowl incident.
