Bill,
Have you got GSP's on the brain today? LOL

Haha! Yes, I was surprised to see it listed as BLUE/GRAY as well, since the car was painted BLUE/WHITE.

was it white or was it something like smoke (i think that was the name or something similar in 1989) which is like a light grey that often looks white in pictures?

cool car, by the way!

It is my understanding that the CHP took Ken's car from MT as painted B&W from Ford, and painted the blue over the black. The car was then upfitted to be a SPMV. I cannot explain why it says BLUE/GRAY on the Assignment Card.



I would also like to thank Mick (again!) for bird-dogging pictures from a SSP seller. Here is a 1988 GSA car that we are able to add to the Project thanks to Mick's efforts -

Hey Bill,
Just to add to that, my car never had holes for the whip antenna or the roof antenna. Also, the shotgun/radio mount holes were different from the standard B&W.
Thanks again for adding those to the VIN file.

Thank you, Ken!

And more thanks go out to Mick for his persistence in getting pictures from the seller of this car:

Because of Mick's efforts, we were able to add a 3rd 1989 Hall County (unconfirmed) car to the VIN Project -

Interesting...does that Tag have "State" instead of "Police" or the Agency Name? Or am I just overlooking a word after "State"?

Tag says "STATE" and nothing else on the same line, that I can see anyway. KF289900 and KF298907 say the same thing.

The tags for these unconfirmed Hall County cars appear to only say:
DSO-21-0236

STATE

SPECIAL SERVICE
