We'll drive you up the wall!

Continuing our trip around the Miami Design District, we find this interesting solution to the parking problem. This used to be the Miami Police Museum, if I recall correctly, and the car used to be painted in the official colors of a Miami-Dade Police patrol car. I'm not sure when this stopped being associated with the police, though. They did leave the car, stripped of its official colors, and the building is now empty, waiting for new tenants. It's a shame it went away, I never got to visit it (and they had a cop car from Blade Runner!).

By the way, traffic in Miami can sometimes make you want to drive exactly like that.

PS: I have just found out that the Police Museum moved to Titusville, Florida. Why, however, no one knows.

Yes it's a real car. It's set to become a fire dept./ambulance museum, and they didn't want to take it down because they'd never get the permits to put it back up. I think the plan is to cover it in some kind of fiberglass body to fake it as an ambulance.
