Cue "Can't Turn You Loose" and Floor It: The Bluesmobile

This image was lost some time after publication.

With all of the attention given to '69 Chargers these days due to the Dukes of Hazzard hoopla, we felt it was time to focus on another historic Hollywood Mopar: It's got a cop motor a four-hundred- and-forty cubic-inch plant. It's got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks; it was a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. So what is it? A 1974 Dodge Monaco, of course. With the Bullitt Mustang and the Bandit's Trans Am, the Bluesmobile stands as a member of the Triumvirate of Filmic Car Chase Icons. And yes, we just made that up. Has a nice ring, tho, eh? Ah, if the policemen of Mt. Prospect, IL only knew what they'd given up. After all, all it needed was a new cigarette lighter.
