DT COW: Commenter of the Week: Cops & Masers

This morning’s featured Maserati Quattroporte isn’t for the faint of heart and nothing underscores this point better than the story from a commenter about a free 4Porte that was rejected!

Back in the day, when I was a big east coast city cop, the narcotics squad confiscated one of these in a raid. It was parked in the headquarters garage for a short time when the police commissioner took notice of it and decided that it would make a great ride for him; after all he WAS the police commissioner. When they took it to a local Italian car shop for some “minor” work, the bill was $3800! The boss went back to his plain-Jane Ford Crown Vic. I spent 31 years on that job, loved every minute!

Congrats to DT commenter David, who apparently has spent some time behind the wheel of a cop car or two.  His prize is the above photo of a 5th generation Maserati 4Porte outfitted for police duty in what looks like Ontario Canada.  Very observant readers will notice that this is the 2nd COW award in a row for David!! Can he make it a hat trick?

We can only hope the drug dealer’s Maserati ended up as a 24 Hours of LeMons racer…as all 4-door Italian luxury cars should.
