Boones Mill Police Chevy Camaro B4C

Above is a photo of the 1998 Chevy Camaro B4C that spent 6-years with the Boones Mill Virginia Police Department. The Camaro and Police Chief Lynn Frith became famous for enforcing the speed limit on US 220 in Boones Mill Virginia.

It’s on that road where Frith has largely made his reputation. Shortly after he was hired, Frith was beaten in seven consecutive high-speed pursuits. As a result, he persuaded the town to replace its patrol car — at the time a wrecked cruiser salvaged from the Rocky Mount Police Department — with a white 1991 Chevrolet Camaro. That car was eventually replaced with this blue Camaro.

The Camaro was replaced in 2004 with a new unmarked 2004 Pontiac GTO (see story HERE). The car was purchased through auction by David Fiore Jr., 23, of Aurora, Ill.

Here’s photos of the Camaro at the 2004 Chicagoland Emergency Vehicle Show with its new owner:

I started my career as a police officer in 1989 with the Geneva on The Lake Police Department. I worked part time as a police officer and full time as a Security Sergeant doing armed mobile security patrols for a local security company. In 1990 I became a State Trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. During my career as a State Trooper I was certified as a Technical Crash Investigator, OPOTA Police Instructor, OPOTA Police Driving Instructor, LASER Instructor, and received awards for ACE (Auto Larceny) and Post Trooper of The Year. Code 3 Garage is a mix of my inner automotive gearhead, and public safety background. I hope you enjoy it!
