Negotiating for a used 2002 police K-9 vehicle that runs good with only 120K on it for a few hundred bucks. Kinda cool with all the vents on the hood (to keep the A/C running while the dog is in the car). Not as cool as the SWAT armored vehicle I was going to pick up for $1.5K until I found out CHP/ DMV won't let me have register it.. but it'll do. I'll post some picks up when its actually mine since the marking are still on the vehicle. Maybe i'll make it a "SCPRC Tactical/Practical Match Team" vehicle.

I knew a guy that spent 6 years trying to privately register an old (1930's) armored car. He finally did it. Where there's a will, there's a way! Besides, if you're driving your SWAT vehicle around, who could stop you to check your registration?

Ah hell get the SWAT vehicle - of course I don't know how practical it'd be in Tehachapi

Sounds awesome! Should be fun for some pistol stages too.

There's a few loopholes if you have an old armored vehicle of "historic value" but it's quite different when it's a modern one painted all black w/ gun ports and ladders and railings on the outside :)

There were no loopholes when he did it. He finally proved that he had stripped all the armour from it and still got lucky finding the right DMV supervisor. He had been told "NO!" many times before and, yes his car still had gun ports.
