Agreed! Here's an old thread where SMPV's were discussed in more detail -

Let me add a disclaimer that I created that thread before documenting that my CHP was NOT an SMPV. But some good info came out of it.

Our own Va 5.0 (Jack K.) took some initiative to locate the photographer who took the following picture, which was shown in the first post of this thread:
http://cache.virtualtourist.com/5319...of_America.jpg

Jack must be part bird-dog, because he tracked the photographer to The Netherlands. She goes by the name of Gonnie, and she sent Jack an enlarged electronic copy of the picture, which Jack sent to me to post up here:

Now we can clearly read the Unit Number. She said that the picture was taken in 1989 near Owens Lake. Thanks for tracking down this picture, Jack!

Wow - there have been a slew of new CHP photos coming in. LOVE it!!

Make you wonder how many more are out there in someone's collection?

Nice! Thanks for all the work guys to bring this one to us. You can tell it's an '88 and like my car also had the same terrible placement of the bumper sticker up partially on the bumper cover rub strip. I just put a long-awaited repro of that sticker on my car but opted to place it below the strip where they appeared on the '86s and '87s. Not 100% nit-picky concours but I also opted to leave the "Safety and Service" scripts off because I detested the location they were applied to on my car too, all in the name of better aesthetics.

Bill, can you make out the plate number? Can you email me higher res versions of these two photos?

Thanks, Greg

Greg, please PM me your email address. I will check my home PC to see if I have the larger version or not. The pic I have isn't all that clear, nor did I name the picture file with the unit number (which I usually do when I save in-service pictures when I can ID the number). It looks as though the number could be any one of these four -

E870478
E870476
E870428
E870426

It is most likely one of the first two, but I cannot tell with 100% certainty whether the second-to-last digit is a "7" or a "2".

I found these two pictures on the CHP forum. I don't think they are new, but they haven't been posted in this CHP picture thread.

Look at all those new correct tires!!!

I got some parts off a white CHP SSP that was sold for scrap in the Denver area. Front end damage that was too severe to repair for the owner. Do we have a total number for the white ones? That one has a CB antenna, right? Looks that way on my phone.

Nice pics.

That white CHP car looks awesome! Has someone restored a white on here?
