Wow. Looks almost like the Japanese version. Good work.

Nice, but I don't really like the red. Otherwise it'd be a good base for a Prowl (which we probably won't get due to two existent uses of the mould.)

Yeah, but wouldn't it be nice to get a Prowl version of the Tracks mold? Wouldn't be unheard of either since many jurisdictions are using Corvettes and Camaros for their slicktop cars...

Hey - it's another Subaru, so it gets two thumbs up in my books :)

Be a bit of a weird body shape, but if they make it, I'll look at it...

It could certainly work, as I said, some jurisdictions have them as semi-inconspicuous cars.

I like the new wing and new wheels. The red intercooler looks less realistic than the silver one on smokescreen. I vote for Tracks to be prowl... I have seen no USA jurisdictions using import cars for police cars. Buy American, I guess.

Prowl is a cop car. Lets go with a normal but still cool cop car. In order to have him be the real deal he's gotta be a Crown Vic.

I like it. Nicer than Smokescreen IMO.

Hmm.. ok.. it looks identical to Smokescreen, cept its repainted. I'm not either enthused or disappointed since I knew its what it would look like. Except his gun.. well.. a red gun? umm.. I thought they would have made it grey and black too.. oh well.. Whats up with the steering wheel being on the right side of the car? If its an American Car, it should be on the left side. Figured somebody would screw up somewhere...

As far as a Prowl.. Yeah.. I could see them making it a Ford Crown Victoria.. but lately, alot of Sheriffs and Highway Patrol men have been using a Chevrolet.. I just can't remember the name.. but it looks sort of like a Malibu. I think that car would fit Prowl better. Plus it would be in the same size range as the other cars, instead of a Crown Victoria which is like driving a boat... especially if you take the sway bars off.. heh heh.. shhh..

They're using Impalas, probably. Cops around here have more than one Impala in service.

That sounds about right.. I would rather them make a Prowl out of an Impala than a Crown Vic.. but.. thats just my personal opinion.

IMO the Impalla is one butt ugly car, so are caprices and crown vics. Prowl is better as a sports car turned police vehical. How about a 350z prowl or the vetter idea was great. A camaro would have ben cool, but they stopped making it.

The Crown Vic is awesome! Check out the performance specs on a police package Crown Vic and it is amazing. The Impala is a budget trimmer. The CV is a far superior car. Impalas only got them beat on price and gas. Has any one ever checked out the black heavy duty rims on the Vic? Heavy duty ramming bumpers? 500 horse engine? The Impala is like an economy car nowadays.
