    Why would anyone give away their rtx lanyard?

    Why is this not a bigger question of how a box of RTX lanyards ended up in the state surplus?

    House paint on a Crown Vic, lol. Probably better than what TXDPS does when they dispose of cars (see the ones with the rattlecan squiggle down the side in the intro). Hopefully the wiring isn't TOO fucked.


    Also it's missing the "POLICE INTERCEPTOR" badge on the ass end, my immersion is broken.

    Why does Max lowkey look like Patton Oswald but younger and happier

      Well he is younger, and he's gay so his wifes not dead.... so happier.

    So let me get this straight, RT now owns their own cop car? If it didn't break so many state and federal laws I bet they'd take it out on the road and make some content.

    I honestly didnt know you could RENT cop cars... I probably /should/ have figured but I just... I guess I thought cop cars just showed up out of no where in films.

    Darn, since they highlighted the shitty job Aaron did I was hoping we'd see the restoration.

    Is anyone else slightly disappointed it went straight from the before to the after image, instead of us getting a montage of the car being painted and put together?

      Yeah. I'm a little dumb so it took me a second to realize that it was the same car!

      Unfortunately we weren't allowed to film that process since it was done out of house (has to be done by someone else). Wish we could have!!

    I have a 1999 Police Interceptor that I got for $400 at a police auction. It ran perfectly fine too. I love that car.

      RT Staff - "Hey Marcus. We want to build a rocket ship capable of intergalactic travel that is fully functioning and looks like a giant version of Burnie's head. We also want it to be able capable of crafting and shooting sandwiches like a machine gun."


      Marcus - "Hmm. That'll be a tough one. Give me two weeks, and I'll have it built."

    Some day I want someone to walk up to Marcus and say "We need a fully mobile, operational tank that flies and also looks like a parade float shaped like a squirrel, that plays Darude Sandstorm and launches wasps out of the cannon with the sound of an airhorn" and see if he's up for it.

    Ok, legit question here... How do you make a completed cop car legal to own? Wouldn't the lights and decals disqualify it for personal use?

    • Oblesidon FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      7 months ago

      It's just not street legal. It's fine as long as its on private property.

    • callmedoug FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Its likely only registered to drive on private property. Its like if you were to buy a yellow school bus for whatever reason, you could only get it insured if you paint it something other than yellow.

      I imagine you can use models the cops aren't using anymore, too.

    • Arkatox FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      They're not using it for personal use. They're using it in film production.

      You can drive a cop car, but if you want to drive it on the street you have to cover up all police markings. We got magnetic vinyl strips that we can throw on for the drive. 

      But if we ever get pulled over i think its gonna be weird.

    • AxelDrake FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      It'd be even weirder if it got pulled over while the person dressed as a cop was driving it.

      He said he would be in and out I thought, like he was taking a few weeks off but would come in to shoot once or twice every few weeks?

      @RavenSugara From what he's said on Off Topic and in various videos; he's coming back in to film H&H and Relationship Goals, but I believe that's where his work responsibilities end

      Those were rentals. It says so in the description. They decided that since they use them so much that they should buy one so they save money.

      They rented them. They literally said that in the video...

      They just figured it would be cheaper to buy one than to rent one every time.

    Plus, it can act as a form of minor security for the company! Just having a cop car sitting outside the office every single day. If you want to really compound on that, have the car parked in a slightly different spot every day. ;D

      Don't they already have a guarded gate with security badges and everything?

    • Fenrir_Shade FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      7 months ago

      Yeah, they do, but that's not as fun. They also have security guards patrol the building after hours. Miles mentioned one passed by in Backwardz Compatible. But all of that is far too logical. That's why you gotta do the convoluted idea I proposed. More psychological to would-be robbers.
