If you live in Seattle, blue lines approaching you from behind could come from a 1970 Plymouth Satellite.
The vintage car was recently restored after it was given to the Seattle Police Department by a donor in Nebraska seven years ago.
According to a story by the Associated Press, the Plymouth was supposed to be used as a community relations and educational tool, but Officer Jim Ritter said he began to notice that people were really drawn to the car. In one instance, Ritter said that gang members once approached him, “dropped their swagger” and wanted to talk about the vehicle.
“People will stop their cars and run across three lanes of traffic to get a picture of it,” Ritter said in the Associated Press story, noting that the vehicle has caused at least three fender-benders.
To make sure the Plymouth would be period-correct, Ritter and his friends had to do some serious research before starting the resto. Ritter said in the story that they had to look up getting the paint mix right, track down parts on the internet and find a siren rack.
The car puts out about 330 horsepower, and other than a modern radio, the inside was restored back to 1970. (It doesn’t even have air conditioning.) And Ritter even wears a uniform of that era.

myPowerBlock member Anthony Cilluffo posted some great pics of his work this weekend, showing off restos and paint jobs he’s recently completed.
In the picture you see above, Anthony says he pinstriped a chopper tank with tribal graphics and a Grim Skull over Kandy Brandwine color. He says he also airbrushed a transparent effect to show background color through the skull.
Anthony has been a myPowerBlock member since 2010, but his profile indicates he’s probably had a love for cars most of his life.
