Based on my supercars and minivans (7 wide wheelbase). Two figs (with caps) fit comfortably in. Doors can be opened. Thanks to Eurobricks user "lightningtiger" who suggested to use the wheelbase for a muscle car. And yes: There are police lights behind the grille.

New LDD-file available: Inspired by DrNightmare's version MOCpages user Dean0Rama has developed a completely new LDD-file which is closer to the original - the height is correct now, too. Thanks a lot Dean! Link see below. If you use it please give Dean0Rama credit for the file.

LDD-file available: Flickr user "DrNightmare" has made an LDD-file of this MOC (thanks a lot). It must be slightly overworked, because the groundplate is too high - but I am not acquainted with LDD, so this will take some time. Anyway the file may help, so I have put it in here. If you use it please give DrNightmare credit for the file.
Thanks a lot for the missing one, Alex! Glad you like it. This was my first MOC to get 25 smilies, and when it got 30 at the end of last year, I never imagined it could ever reach 40 oder even 50 ... :) @Michal: Thanks a lot!
Thanks a lot Jim, glad to hear that. The 7w building style allows quite a low stance because of the room you get for a strong middle beam. Thus you can omit the door sills. On the other hand the cars are quite large - a car transport semi like your very fine one would look quite odd with some 7-wides on it ;-) But if you're still at the beginning you may switch to the growing 7-wide community, see http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/19779
Sweet looking police car. I like how you try to keep your vehicles realistic looking and low profile. It is unfortunate that TLG started with the 4 and 6 wide standard. I'm always bugged by not being able to put two minifigs next to each other and the lack of detail that I can put into a 4 wide car.
Many thanks for your kind words Jesse! TLG won't probably change their system of 4 and 6-wide cars (although a 7-wide + mudguards like this still fits on the usual streets). Another point is the number of parts - cars like this would cost much more than the usual ones. - I've put both suggestions on the list - although I must say that there are a lot more cars I've tried to build than were finally built ;-)
Your cop car here and your Chevrolet one are how cop cars SHOULD be built from TLG! I'm sorry but they look more realistic the way that you do the builds. Now what I'd love to see from you is a 2000s Ford Crown Victoria (or a mid 1990s one) and a mid 2000s Dodge Charger SRT8 police car, please. With your skills, those wouldn't be hard ones to make, right? Good job there, sir.
do you know who else I d like to have this car? chris phipson! I m sure he d love this! it s awesome, I really tough that I commented you before, and then I see that I never did, I m happy to do so now!
Thank you all very much guys, I am quite overwhelmed by this reaction - this car had more views and ratings in one day than any other of my vehicles at all. There is much encouragement in that. Thanks a lot!
That's really cool, the perfect scale for two Minifigs! It really works in all dimensions, height, width and length are just perfect. Very good shaping and some nice details, too (the flashing lights behind the grill are awesome!). Great job! :-))
