Eye On Boise

How far they’ve come…

As the Idaho State Police readies its new fleet of 32 Dodge Charger “muscle cars,” some are remembering back to the classic “skunk” – the 1947 Chevrolet Fleetline patrol car that earned its nickname when Idahoans first saw its distinctive white striping on a black background.

Next week, ISP plans to unveil both the new Charger and a freshly restored vintage 1947 model, restored by car restoration buff Deane Johnson of Hailey as a gift to ISP.

The older model won’t be heading on any car chases; it’s for use in parades and public displays.
