PT Cruiser and first GD VYII photos

This PT Cruiser was in Bendigo on 20/05/2004 while on loan from the Melbourne police youth liaison office. That day I also took my first photos of a VY series II Commodore sedan. Note new siren, takedown/alley lights, and rear checkerband markings.

VicPol 'Slicktop'

My first big photo shoot for a few months, and the first with my brand-new 4 megapixel Canon PowerShot A85 digital camera. VicPol have begun a trial of marked unmarked police cars, with no markings visible from front on. The purpose of this is to make unmarked vehicles more visible from the sides and rear during UDD, while still retaining some covertness. I saw this semi at Bendigo Police Station on 31/08/2004, and was lucky enough for it to be parked next to a fully marked SS for a direct comparison.
