About two hours east of San Francisco, this event attracts about spectators a year to view the 75 to perfect-condition vehicles on display and to peruse the police memorabilia at the badge and patch show, which is also a part of the event. New for the most recent event was the Cruise Night held at the nearby Sonic Drive-In, where the spectators could view the cars and informally chat with the owners over cheeseburgers and milkshakes. The following day at the mid-point of the show, all of the vehicles participated in a lights and siren parade that wound through Ripon. Richard Bull, chief of the Ripon Police Department, believes that the emergency vehicle show is a great family and community event. He also commented that the city that he serves is very pro-law enforcement.
Instead, their attention and cameras were directed at a fully restored Plymouth Satellite police cruiser. It's the common reaction to the vehicle driven by year-veteran Officer Jim Ritter. By his count, the Plymouth has caused at least three fender-benders. It has its drawbacks, but if those are the worst things to happen, I'll take it any day over having people not wanting to approach the police," Ritter said. Along with local car shops, Ritter and volunteers have 14 vintage police cars. They have restored six vehicles for the King County Sheriff's office, Washington state Patrol and the Seattle Police Department, and are in the process of fixing up another eight, which includes a Dodge Aspen. Under an agreement with the Seattle Police Department, Ritter uses the Plymouth as his everyday cruiser.
