Do you have limitations on when you can drive that? Like could you drive it everyday or must it be on the way to a show only? Just curious about impersonating and officer type stuff.

I would assume he would have to put a cover on the lights that says, "Out of Service".

All the stickers are magnetic and I cover part of the door with black magnetic panel with blue painters tape. I cover the lights. they do reduce the gas mileage . I went to the Las Vegas AMC show . I n Nevada you can have white doors. that was nice the dry weather made the tape blow off. I will post photos of that trip soon. :amc:

Can you easily take the lights off while on long trips or is it kind of a pain?

You can Take them off. But you know there's no room for more than 2 people the lights take up the back seat. when I use to drive to Denver to visit a friend a few times  the truckers would get all upset. You could hear them talking a bought  the car on the CB. Funny The latest thing is some one asked if the Eagle was the new replacement for the crown vick  To funny. !!
