Looks like the RCMP are operating a heritage "flight" , saw this in Goose Bay last year and actually got a picture or two last week.

Yes. Since 2010 I think it has been possible to drive from Baie-Comeau to Goose and down to Blanc Sablon on the Trans Labrador Highway . Why? Well why not

Not exactly what you'd expect and not very good in a high speed chase. Make a good video though especially when the two hoodies in their Golf GIT realise they got caught by a Robin:)

Note: I would like to point out that not all hoodies are up to no good and other GITs are available

The chap with the reliant has permission from the police to display it in police markings, and they are markings from the sixties. I can can remember when the police had minis as patrol cars.

Mind you what cars do the Vatican police use? Given the size of the country I cant see them needing a high performance car!

Would the Vatican use Wolseley's? (I know the Cardinal spelt his name differently). Or perhaps some form of RC car?

The Morris Minor was always a common sight when panda cars came into being. Did the panda cars rely on the personal radio set rather than an in car one or were personal radio sets not widely used then?

Weren't the first Panda Cars Ford Anglias?

Just checking the museum site, some early ones used Pye Westminsters but other forces seemed to use other types.

There were adaptors to use a PF1 in a car, I presume they left the receiver clipped on their uniform and just had the transmitter in the adaptor.

I saw this in a pub car park in May this year. Sent a copy to my brother who put it on one of his old car sites. Next thing someone saw it got in touch with the owner and bought it to refurbish it. Made someone happy, and saved the car from total death.

They were a lot more tasteful in those days when compared with the garish Battenberg markings nowadays.
