The cop car was a happy accident. We bought it for drivetrain parts for another project. Separately, we got a Hellcat motor for a '70 Cuda project. However, the Cuda was not going to be ready in time for the 2019 Power tour. We temporarily threw the front suspension and Hellcat motor from the Cuda project into the cop car shell for the Power Tour. We printed up special Hot Rod tickets to "cite" people to raise money for Shop with a Cop. At the beginning of the Power Tour the car was featured by Hot Rod and became viral. It has been featured by Hot Rod, Roadkill Extra, Roadkill Nights and was in an episode of Roadkill. And many other things. And we had too much fun driving it - so the Hellcat - and the fun, stayed in the cop car. On 12/8/19, having collected donations all year - we added a bit on our own - and donated a check for $1,000 to Shop with a Cop.
