The BUSTang: Hottest D.A.R.E. car in the country - Autoblog

Check out the following quote from an article on

If you're young enough to have lived through this country's War on Drugs while attending grade school, you no doubt remember annual visits from your local police department to intimidate/convince you not to do drugs. In order not to frighten children by showing up in a Crown Vic with a dash-mounted shotgun, most officers arrived in a D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) car, usually a vehicle acquired through a drug bust or paid for with confiscated drug money, or so they told my class. A lot of D.A.R.E. vehicles were late model pony cars like the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang, presumably because drug dealers were way into Detroit iron and the flashier the car, the easier it was to keep the attention of kids hopped up on sugar and caffeine.
