Soon after the very first car hit the road, a police car followed, waiting patiently for it to f*ck up. Since that first paddy wagon, the cop car has grown into a high-performance, car-chasing, perp-busting machine, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a devastatingly loud siren called the rumbler. Here's a look at the cruiser through the years.

Hopefully you'll never have to see it from the inside.
