I was reading about the history of highway 401 ( which goes from Quebec to Windsor then joins to interstate 75 that goes to Florida.

I found this pic from the early 1970's in Toronto. Looks like an Imperial on the left, a 73/74 Charger ( or maybe a cougar?) in the middle and a Vega on the right.. cool old pic..

Hey Jason, why is there no traffic on the 401 in any of your pics? Sure not not like today is it?

No way... it is crazy now.. there is more trucks between Windsor and Toronto now that on any highway in North America. It is wall to wall trucks now..

I still want that Fairlane Cop Car.. LOL I wonder what would have been powering it?

That's not a Fairlane, it's a full size '64 Ford Custom (the cheapo version of the Galaxie). Fairlane doesn't have that cut-out dip in the bumper under the tailights, and many other differences. My Dad had a '64 Custom 500, (extra piece of horizontal trim on the back panel between the taillights where the FORD letters are on the Custom, nicer seat covers) and it's one of the only Fords I'd like to own.  He traded his on a '67 Fury III.   Like Steve said 390 was the typical cop engine, though they offered a 427 11.5 CR and dual 4 bbl, 425 advert hp. Ours had the 289, it wasn't  too bad because there were no emissions controls except for pvc. First car I ever drove by myself on public roads (illegally, no license) one night when the 'rents were out in the '63 Ford wagon.  '64 was the last full size Ford I liked, I hated the redesigned 65s and later ones, and became a Mopar convert then and there.
