Transformers Mustang Cop Car Replica Not Police Approved

A man by the name of Jesse Vigil has decked out a 2007 Mustang to look like Barricade the Saleen Mustang from Transformers and not surprisingly, the local cops don't approve. Much to the delight of Transformers fans everywhere, including Vigil's son and the inspiration for the mod, the cops can't do a damn thing as long as Vigil isn't impersonating the police.

Despite not being a Saleen, the car is a fairly solid replica. It include the slogan "To punish and enslave and more. It does also include a non-functional siren bar. The police shouldn't bust Vigil's chops too much. He did the replica for his son after returning from Iraq. It should be illegal to bust the chops of somebody with those credentials.

The local authorities got pretty pissed when a group of friends and I altered our vehicles a bit...

We formed a group that we nicknamed the Mobile Armored Strike Command. We did this to compete with a rival group that called themselves the Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem.

I have some video of our rides...
