My name is Darren,
I've recently come back to the car scene having taken time off to raise my children.
I've always been to classic car shows and it's been part of me, I've had some classics and a 1991 Oldsmobile toranado trefeo, a 1966 Ford zephyr4. Also a 1994 Plymouth acclaim.
What got me back was the passing of my father in 2011 to cancer and he was always part of the car shows being an American car man himself.
Knowing he wanted to do an American police car project. I saw my current car up for sale, It's a 1989 Mercury sable first generation. It was just black and white with no livery, at first I thought it was just for a bit of fun but as time went by I've joined many groups and met some great people. It's amazing how they accept you and are friendly, it's like being part of a big family.
The car itself was just black and white no lights, livery and damaged front wing to the extent that it could not open the passenger door, no keys so had to hot wire it and tyres that had splits inside walls that could fit a 20p piece in.
It had been sat off road a few years and now it turns out to be the only one on the road in the uk although there are 2 of these in the uk. It will be undergoing a full respray and new livery and hopefully besides car shows it will be ďoing some charity events, anything to do with cancer since I lost my dad to cancer in 2011.
I have fitted a genuine police centre console from a retired crown vic. And will be fitting 3 genuine police aerials. I've got back into the car shows since joining Ford society on Facebook and have met and soon to me a new as we call it family.
I have joined the official us cop car uk, Ford society and several other pages on Facebook.
My Mercury sable has the 3.0 v6 Vulcan engine fitted with a 4 speed aoxd transmission which would produce 140hp and gives 160 lbs ft of torque. It was a midsize car made by Ford. It was launched alongside it's sister car the Ford Taurus( robocop). Length is 190.9 in and width is 70.8 in with a height of 54.3 in.
As the first gen was never fitted with manual transmission unlike it's sister car the Ford Taurus sho.
Although the sable was never used as a police cruiser I have done it for my late father and it will be having the d.a.r.e stickers fitted soon.
D.a.r.e is an organisation against drug and alcohol abuse in the u.s.
I have the code 3 mx7000 lightbar controlled by a federal signal siren system
It's still an ongoing project with still plenty more to add on to it.
