YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

.

Today we continue our Friday look at police cars on the silver screen. This one’s very animated, if you will — the 1949 Mercury named “Sheriff” from the 2006 Disney/Pixar movie Cars. If you’re a car person, you owe it to yourself to see both the original Cars movie, and the cleverly-named 2011 sequel Cars 2. The second movie, especially, is chock-full of interesting vehicles, seeing that much of the action takes place in Europe and Asia. A Google search for 1949 Mercury Police Car didn’t turn up too many real versions (actually, none), but this was a cute little cruiser just the same. The photo is from the website route66.backroadsplanet.com.
