    I was at one of those car cruises around Detroit like a week or 2 ago and I saw this guy:

    http://emob736.photobucket.com/albums/xx4/Star_Ling87/0423a486.jpg?t=1278601635

    I knew of someone who painted their saleen like this on a message board when the first movie came out buy I can't find it for anything. So I was just seeing if anyone on this board might own the car. If nothing else it was a cool aight out of nowhere.

    Pretty cool, where's Bumblebee when you need him? I wonder if he gets pulled over a lot for impersonating an officer! LOL!

    I was just thinking that. Isn't it illegal to paint and decorate a car in that scheme and drive it on public roads?

    If you look closely the "POLICE" on the door is printed onto (what looks like) a magnet, and the purple Decepticon "Police Badge" actually reads "SALEEN" along the top of it...

    And since there appear to be a few another Mustang in the pic, and the OP stated that he saw it during a car cruise; I assume the magnet was applied after it was parked...

    Oh my Primus! *Drools at picture*

    Hey, wait a sec! The number's wrong... it's supposed to be 643, NOT 984.

    Some guy a while ago tried to paint his mustang like Barricade and got ticketed for it, he didn't have the word police on it, but because it resembled a cop car too much they gave him the ticket anyway. He said his son loved Barricade in the movie so he decided to paint it like him.

    I would bet that it's a take on the year Transformers came out -1984.

    You CAN get pulled over for writing "police" on your car, however, you can decorate it like that, and write "prowl" or "Barricade" instead of police and then you're in the clear

    Actually, you can have a police car or a car that looks like a police car. You just have to have a sign that says "not in service" or "out of service" or something similar to show that it's not an active emergency vehicle.

    Pretty awesome.

    I'm not 100% on the whole, white door jig.

    I've seen a ton of police auctioned police cars driving around. With a working spot light at that. And they seem to always get the clear.

    But, the lights w/ police on the door, is obviously gonna get the guy ticketed. Magnet logo or not.

    I think it depends on each individual state's stance on civilians driving police-like cars. Like Firehawc said, in some cases they will require you to have an "out of service" magnet on the doors.

    ^This

    I even got some of the Michigan dealers to give me a quote, it'll be at least 10k more for a new Saleen. I would have to check the local customizers to see what they charge.

    Don't forget to get a pre 2010 model year Mustang then. As the new Mustang body style is not the same as Barricade's.

    if I was in the Market for a Saleen Mustang Barricade, i'd have to upgrade because the new rear looks a lot better

    I was wondering more about the light-bar than the decals.
