" For reference, I got $5500 in just the transmission. If I ever tallied up exactly how much I have in the motor, I would probably need new underwear.
He went on to tell me that of the 14 vehicles and 5 departments in the chase, the only things that would keep up with it was the stateboy's Yukons. Oh, and the STL county helicopter, lol. I asked what about the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor that the department runs, and he said that the Yukons would walk all over the Crown Vics. He said they are crazy fast. Apparently, the stateboys have to pass some sort of advanced driving test to get a Yukon, otherwise they get issued a Crown Vic, or now a Dodge Charger
