Florida Highway Patrol Here is a great shot of an unmarked FHP unit from Troop D, Orlando, taken sometime in the 90's. Notice the very unusual placement of the Whelen strobes on the top of the rear window. This unit would have most likely had a front blue light as well. Also of note, the chrome rain visors were standard on all  FHP cars, whether marked or unmarked.  Jeff Pasteris photo, thanks to Jerry Law.

 

Florida Highway Patrol Mustangs and Mustangs! Neat shot of Mustang unit, Troop C, Lakeland, 1988.
