Dodge Charger Police Car!
NEW YORK - The New York Police Department is adding some muscle to its car fleet: the 2006 Dodge Charger, whose 1969 model is best remembered for outrunning a hapless sheriff in "The Dukes of Hazzard."
The department plans to buy 15 police versions of the car for a pilot program that will begin this summer, officials said Thursday.
With so many flashy foreign cars on the road, speed matters, said Leonard Lesko, the NYPD's director of fleet services.
