I think the Blues Wagon idea is a great one. Huey has hinted at a Monaco Blues Wagon in the works.
Yeah, I noticed the 1:64 scale Crown Vic wagons from Greenlight (not Johnny Lightning). There's an '88-'91 version as well as a pre-'88. I hope they will do a sedan as well and come out with a BB2K Blumo (although the Johnny Lightning one is very good).
Edit: I see that Greenlight is even coming out with an '88 Crown Vic wagon in 1:18 scale. Here's hoping they do a 1:18 scale sedan (Blumo)!

- There was also a green version of the SIHP wagon.
"SIHP" is something GreenLight made-up I guess ? I saw one guess of "Staten Island Highway Patrol" but I don't think that's right. Staten Island falls under Unit #5 of the NYPD Highway Patrol. They used to be known as "HESSI" - Highway Emergency Service Staten Island.

- Barn find !! It's the same seller (jeffzilla12) that did this treatment to a 1:64 GreenLight Bluesmobile that was posted not long ago. They appear to be exclusively 1:64 and currently have over 130 "Custom Weathered Die-Casts."

Look at all that interior space. That would make more sense for a dog "canine patrol." Or for that matter even a band. Family wagons have their place in motor history. Chicago Police Department did use wagons, the older 1982-1987 models for Ford, and Chevrolet for newer ones. Hint, Hint, if you see this post Green Light.
Still a huge fan of sedans though.
A closed trunk better for keeping stuff out of sight and secure.
Here is the real Blues mobile 2000, in my mind only.
This car was registered in Joliet, IL with 5 miles on the odometer for Will County Illinois Sheriff Dept.
Like the movie line, car was for sale on Cicero Avenue in Chicago for same cost as movie line.
Still had glue marks and decals, same look Universal was going for.
Missing radio, same as movie line.
This is a vintage photo of a 1991 Crown Vic.
The first photo was the best side, other side had three damaged panels from something.
