MIstatepolicecar

You may have seen this beauty of a car in downtown Rockford on Friday, July 17. Michigan State Police Post Commander F/Lt. Chris McIntire had it delivered to participate in the Sparta Town and Country Days parade Saturday. This vehicle represents the type and style of patrol vehicle the Michigan State Police used in 1937.

The car was originally owned by the late Miss Mable Davis of Hillsdale, Mich. It was refurbished by donations, including the Michigan State Police Troopers Association and Meijer Inc.

McIntire said he looked forward to driving the car and that this vehicle as well as some of his motorcycle officers were to be the grand finale of the parade.
