The Mississippi Highway Patrol cruiser has been chosen as one of the best looking in the country. 

As part of the The American Association of State Troopers Annual Cruiser Contest, departments from every state submitted a photo and sought the title of ‘Country’s Best Looking Cruiser’. It was up to you to go vote for the winner, and with over 7,000 likes on Facebook, the MHP was among the favorites.

The winner of the contest, Kentucky’s Highway Patrol, will be featured on the cover of the upcoming “2019 America’s Best Looking Cruiser Calendar”.

While the MHP didn’t take the top spot, they did place 12th which will get them into the calendar. Shown above, the MHP’s submission featured a Dodge Charger adorned with the original door decal that dates back to 1938 and the traditional blue stripe with red piping that mirrors the leg stripe on the Trooper’s uniform. 

“We spend more time in those cars than we do in our homes. So that’s why we take a lot of pride in the cars that we drive,” MHP Captain Johnny Poulos said. 

When it came to choosing the best photo, the MHP stated that it was all about finding the right location. 

“The Charger is posing in front of one of Mississippi’s most recognized landmarks; the State Capital Building in Jackson, Mississippi. The contest is a friendly competition but is a great way to stoke a healthy rivalry between the states,” the MHP said.
