The tale of the Ford Police Interceptors. *5 IMAGES^

At the opening of Magog's new fire station in late October, I photographed a pair of Ford Police Interceptors (Explorers) with every intention of building them in scale.

I checked with a friend If decals could be made and his answer was a resounding YES and he even told me when I could order them from.

So I ordered a trio, hoping to catch the Memphremagog's Regional Police's unit which I haven't done yet.

I provided two shipping addresses to the vendor so he could ship with USPS to my American Post Office box and an alternate address in case they chose to ship via courrier.

They chose courrier but sent it to my Post Office Box which resulted in it being returned to the nearest courrier depot.

I received an email from the Courrier and I called them. They told me the vendor didn't allow them to re-address their shipments. Bugger!

The next day, I got a call from the local Courrier depot wanting an another address they could ship to. I was surprised and related my conversation with their HQ to the depot. I was told "Just watch me re-address it."

I'm sure glad they could and did.

Inspiration for two of the trio.

My plan is to build them and take them to a few shows before donating them to the Magog Fire Department and The Eastern Townships Ambulance Company (Ambulance de L'Estrie).
