TC On Police Chase Show

Saw a humorous segment on Wild Police Chases or whatever that show is called.
The segment showed what looked like a white 88 TC that had been taken on a joy ride by some teenagers.
Now normally, from what I've seen they don't say much about the vehicle being chased by the cops. However, in this case they said a LOT. Talked about how it was a powerful Thunderbird Turbo Coupe and how the cop happened to be in a 5.0 Mustang. They said nothing about if the TC was auto, manual or if it had been modded. Just assumed it was stock. The funny part was the host of the show was talking about how the "...220 hp Thunderbird Turbo Coupe..."
The other funny part was the cop was yelling at the TC over his loud speaker, while he was chasing them, saying "....I've got a 5.0 buddy! You're not going to outrun ME!"

I forgot how much they re-run those shows. I just checked over at the TC site and found where they had posted this 3 yrs ago!

Yeah... I cought that last night. Didn't hear the part about it being a Turbo Coupe... I about fell out of my chair laughing when the cop was describing the Mustang, and then we hear the ".. I've got a 5.0 buddy! You're not going to outrun ME!" line. I'm thinkin'.. uhm... the T-Bird probably has a 5.0 too... but now I know it was just a lil ol' turbo 2.3..

The sad thing is that with very few mods that lil ol'turbo 2.3 will out run the 5.0

I saw that the other night too, that was awesome!!!

ya with a few mods that car can definitely outrun a 5.0 but you must remember there was just a couple dumb kids in the car and the cop probably had years of experience at high speeds...

5.0 P71 = 1
Tbird TC = 0

I would guess NONE, unless they catch the perpetrator later and they comment to that fact. As they don't want to be blamed for encouraging lawlessness. I've only seen one chase video where it ended in a fatal crash for the idiots that were trying to get away. I was surprised they even showed that.

Why is every police chase video a drunk, a kid, a stoner, or a hysterical woman? We never see anyone who can drive a car somewhat well. The only car i have seen outrun the cops, is a black BMW, in which the made it look like he ran outa gas. It was on DTMpower forums and the kid was 15. The cop had a Camaro. In real life, the kid got a way and was turned in 4 days later by his dad, who was an instructor at the BMW driving school, i believe.

im not trying to condone lawlessness, but even though that kid was 15, it kinda looked like he's done some driving before that.

I don't know about the hysterical woman part, but for the others I would answer your question by saying probably b/c they are usually the ones not thinking clearly and stupid enough to try something like that.
