    Great picture, I drove one of these.



    The above comment was posted by retired Sergeant John Cummings. John Started with the CPD in 1954 and retired in the early 1980s. While I never worked for him, I did have the pleasure of meeting him in 1999 and staying in contact via email. Sadly, John passed away in September of 2008.

    He was a good man.
