This was back when the speed limit was capped at 55mph and they're still going dirt slow. Interesting how much vehicles have evolved, and for policing in general. Everything is far more intense and violent these days. Huge cringe at the cops setting themselves in each other's crossfire. That head into door frame wouldn't be tolerated today though.

Hey! there was about 300hp in that video… if you combine the two police cars and the suspect vehicle could have been damn near close to 300hp. 😂

My hybrid Explorer can do 220+ km/h... but unfortunately pursuits are no longer allowed.

Smile and wave, boys.

Yeah, they don't do that passive stuff in these parts. They're more than happy to play bumper cars or chase at 150mph

I had an 86 regal as my first car. It could have been a badass car but had a 307 4 barrel rated for 150hp. That was by far the slowest car I ever drove.

We had a 1977 El Camino which was based on a Malibu A-body back then. A lot of police departments used them in my neck of the woods. I remember the whaaaaa..... whaaaaa... sound from the 454 4 bbl trying to make it move in hot pursuit :) Dare I say we've come a long way since those days ;)

Georgia State Patrol and Arkansas Highway Patrol do not fuck around.

I drive the speed limit in GA. :D

GSP PITs another charger wanna-be.
I can neither confirm nor deny that those speeds through that specific stretch of highway was adequate enough just 2 decades earlier to outrun the crown vics.
