A police car modeled after ones from the 1980’s (with a little but of classic and modern bits thrown in). The car has a very different look then most my vehicles which is probably inspired by the amount of 80s television I watch.
About this creation
Behind the scenes:
To start off, I am not happy with this car. It looks good now, but until I put the final pieces on it just wasn’t working. I think the main problem I have with it is that it doesn’t fit in with the rest of my cars. It looks 80’s/90’s were the rest are 50’s/60’s and maybe 1970. That’s not to say it is an ugly car, it just doesn’t look like what I want it to look like. The inside is perfect, I don’t know too much about police cars, but I bet the inside looks just like this car. It does have one of my best engines ever other than the one in my Fire Truck. In the future (not really I’m just behind in uploading stuff) it will be used in the Retro Motors Duster. The name of the engine itself "Power Pusher" is, like most of my engines, is sort of a pun, after all, you do push the car to make it roll across the floor right?
About the car:
Designed specifically as a police cruiser, the Black and White Police Special was built for the LEGO Town police station although orders have also been place by many other cities throughout the country. The cruiser has a V8 “Power Pusher” Engine which provides plenty of power in a chase. The chases is extra strong so that the car can withstand light collisions, and the doors come stock with armor plating. The rear has a prisoner cage with a shotgun rack behind the driver seats. The dashboard has a computer terminal as well as a forward facing camera.
The Black and White is the forth car to be made by Retro Motors.
Uber long story start The real story:
“Retro Motors” is a fictitious car company I made up, it is a company that really couldn’t exist in the real world because there isn’t enough of a market for classic stile cars in the modern world. But in LEGO I can do what I want, aerodynamics can be thrown out the window because they all get the same MPP (Miles Per Push), they are all imagination powered after all! The company is really just an excuse to relate all my custom cars together by creating a back story for them, it’s a good outlet for my imagination to.
The fictional story behind “RM”:
Retro Motors, or RM, was created by young inventor Scott Bertaut in LEGO Town, New Jersey. The first car it made was a custom “El Camino,” followed a year later by “the Retro Wagon.” These first prototypes were really just one of a kind cars thrown together out of old parts in Scott’s family’s garage but soon became mass produced as part of an actual company. “The Retro Wagon” was mass produced first to gain funds to purchase the “El Camino” name from GM, the name “Astro” was also part of the deal The company mainly makes new cars that looks similar to the classic cars of old but have all the features of a modern car from one of the “Big 3.” The company is really held up by its use of revolutionary engines and other technology that allows the cars to be fuel efficient and powerful at the same time. It’s these new technologies in its cars that allow them to have any shape but still be fuel efficient and handle well. As soon as the rest of the country is willing to cooperate, the companies CEO planes to introduce advanced hydrogen burning engines into all of its models. The company also has a small side branch that does restoration work on actual classic cars. Retro Motors is one of the only American car companies to enjoy growth in the current recession, and it plans to continue to look into the past to bring people the future cars. Uber long story end
Normally I only have one picture, but here I tried to make a scene.
It is a shootout between cops and robbers as the police move in on a heist gangs hideout.
This car has been scrapped (I actually had it for a about a year, but I didn't upload it until they day before it was destroyed). I saved the roof, engine, and all the interior but every thing else is gone. It has now been turned into a new car, "The Crime Cruiser" based on the 64 Ford Thunderbird and 70 Dodge Cornet. I hope to upload it soon!

This is just awesome, please consider not scrapping it. i love the interior details like the MDT.
Um, Oops, I just blew it up 5 hours ago! Don't worry though, the new police car I built with the parts is even better! The entire Interior as well as the roof and engine were saved and built right into the new one. It may be a while before I upload it (lots of other stuff in the line) but the Retro Motors Crime Cruiser is really something!
