The City of Nampa is going green with their new/old police cars.  OK, maybe not on gas mileage, but instead of spending $30k+ to buy new cars, they are refurbishing Crown Victoria cruisers for around $12.5k.

This seems like a great idea as most officers say they prefer the Crown Victorias as compared to the newer and smaller cars and most of us prefer the Crown Victorias since we know what shape to look for when we need to slam on the breaks to avoid the speeding ticket.

Seems really smart...Channel 7 did a cool story about it HERE.
