Default 1983 FHP Photos

Since reacquiring the '83 FHP, I have been trying to locate additional in-service photos, documentation on the cars, information on the Troopers that drove them, and their stories. So far, so good!

Beginning with a photo most of us are familiar with, the story goes:

"It was 1983 and I had stopped to meet with a couple of troopers that were in the median on I-95 southbound. Trooper Ted Crawley, said, "Come thru the median, its firm." I said it(s) too soft. Trooper Crawley, stated, "Its firm, come on thru, Trust me." I got stuck and Trooper Crawley said, "YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TRUSTED ME." Bob Borman

I had the pleasure of speaking over the phone with retired Trooper Borman after he was recognized in the photo and we were put in contact with each other. Although he didn't get into the specifics of the '83's other than this incident, his memories of the '83 and other Mustangs he drove were positive.

Very nice! Side note...interesting thread going on a Facebook license plate collector site about a person who tried selling FHP plates on eBay and was contacted by the FHP and instructed to send the plates back to them.

Trooper Chris Roper in his 1983 Mustang, which he gladly traded his Diplomat for.

To everyone out there, wherever you are. Remember, the light at the end of the tunnel may be the police chasing you down in their own Mustang!
