Old Diplomats never die they just become bumper cars.
Great tounge-in-cheek cliche of the old cop that's about to retire and die. But let's give some credit to his metalic co-star. The little Diplomat that could. It takes a beating and keeps on ticking like a combination of a Timex, the Enegizer Bunny and the Mustang from gone in 60 Seconds. Oh And throw in a little bit of the Blues Brothers Dodge for good measure. What a car!
