Faux Police Cruisers

Real Transformer Mustang In Vegas

— March 14, 2008 — Autos
We've seen people faking status, but it looks like the hip thing to do in Nevada is faking authority. If you ever see a cop in a 2007 Mustang Cruiser in Sin City, don't let him pull you over; chances are, he's not an officer.

Jessie Vigil from Las Vegas painted his black and white Mustang to look like an official police car. You'd think that would get him in trouble with the law, but it turns out, "Law enforcement agencies say what he's done with his car isn't illegal as long as he doesn't act like a police officer."

He even painted the word "police" right on his door. This probably should be illegal, imagine people actually needed help, or if some psycho painted his car like this and went around pulling girls over.

Apparently, Vigil, an Iraq war veteran, isn't a crazy man. The 36 year old was just trying to be a cool dad to his 7 year old son who is a big time fan of the Transformer's movie. The clip above shows a clip of the animated film's car.

"My intent was to re-create the movie car," said Vigil. "When I came back from Iraq, I tried to spoil him. I wasn't the best dad before."

On the surface, the whole thing is sketchy, but look into it, and this is actually a pretty cute story.
