County of San Diego Seeks Hot Wheels

The County of San Diego is in the market for some brand-new cars, including a 2010 Dodge Challenger SE, which the Yahoo! auto site says lists at $23,345; it’s a muscle car touted by its maker as the “Reigning King of the asphalt jungle.” According to a request for quotation issued September 16, the vehicle is to come with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission. In addition, it should be equipped with a “130 Media Center,” including a CD player and an mp3 radio, along with 17-inch aluminum wheels. The color should be “dark titanium metallic clear coat with dark slate gray interior.”

Other cars on the County shopping list include a 2011 Ford Edge SE with 3.5-liter V-6 engine, listed at $27,000, and a 2010 Nissan Altima with a radiant silver exterior and a charcoal cloth interior. A County spokeswoman says the vehicles will be used by the sheriff’s department. For its part, the City of San Diego has been shopping around for nine BMW police motorcycles.

Now they can be called pigs again. They should purchase American, but they don't need toys and muscle cars.

This just cements my NO VOTE on anything taxes or fees the county wants in the future.

  1. The Muscle Car and other "hot" cars, I'm guessing they will be probably used as bait to catch other "HOT"car owners that like to street race, for "high speed training" and PR!

  2. The BMW Police Motorcycle is the safest and most cost effective motorcycle on the market so that purchase makes good sense!

BTW: I'd also suggest that the SDPD also consider getting several Electric Motorcycles* to use in urban areas because they are very fast (67 mph), low cost (Less than $.01 per mile to recharge) and very stealthy! *
