- Two 1974 Monaco's in this video. The Lapeer County clone we've seen before in the Sightings thread, and the bottom one in the pic was a lucky find by the host of the show! He's Australian, loves The Blues Brothers and the Bluesmobile, and that car was bought in the US and is now in Australia.
He says that the guy he bought it from purchased it in 2013 and parked it. I was thinking it looked like Jenny's sedan she had for a bit. I looked through the old threads and she did indeed sell hers in 2013 ... but it's not the same car lol. Jenny's didn't have the vinyl roof and it was actually Bill who bought that one and turned it into a very nice Blumo.

- BB2000 Blumo sighting on daTube, apparently the car has been in Arizona. Seller says it's a '91 but lens under the headlights aren't clear. Says it's not a "P71" and also mentions it's a factory dual exhaust car. There was at least one tribute band in Arizona, they have a Gran Fury ...

Neat car for FREE plus $31 in fuel. Even in video he states tried to watch the movie and movie cars have door stickers that are all scratched up. (still have #43 video up on you tube to compare ) Quarter graphics lettering too small on his.
Car had optional trim along hood and front fenders below windshield. Right fender had optional p74 luxury package corner light. Driver door from earlier version mated with newer dash. (I have done this in past, so if it has roll ups he would need to open door to raise or lower glass.) Movie car fenders had a black out plates for antenna, this car has antenna. Interior seats appear to be from p74 package. Car has optional factory bumper guards front/rear. Added police antenna on rear trunk.
Has dual spot lamps
As noted in video no "prisoner partition."
Guards look very close, but not the same as movie cars.
Per video plans to show at car shows, so hopefully we will see more pics in Blues mobile sightings.
Note All Crown Victoria's were assembled in Canada even for US did not see cluster, or hear run, so the Canadian only versions would have metric primary gauge clusters(all) with day time running lights(civilian models).
St. Thomas Ontario Canada is town where assembly plant was located.
^ Ha, the new owner of the Crown Vic in Arizona "tried" to watch BB2K. I've tried and been successful many times (which is probably how I know that 1445 is on the wrong side of the trunklid on his car).
He also asks, "Who (would make) a Blues Brothers 2000 movie car?" Well,
Bismo (car sold to Christine58 in UK), SOLD - BLUES2 For Sale | Bluesmobiles
Blues Brothers Next Generation (car for sale or sold), PHOTOS
Phil the Frenchy (France), My Bluesmobile 2000 | SuperMotors.net
Mr. & Mrs. Blues (Sweden), bluesmobile.info
Somebody in Germany, Bluesmobile 2000
The most notable copy I would like to ad is found in the police car restoration book by Ed Sanow. In it (Steve Dodd) name from book travels to Universal down in Florida and spends many hours copying the graphics from movie car #71. Last I heard that car (replica signed by D.A.) is still up in Wisconsin. His graphics are painted on.
Another note the Texas Art Car Parade BB2k crown vic.

^ That's good stuff, a good interview with some Blumo clips in Chicago what's not to like . Travis sold that Blumo to the "Speed Nuts" in Japan a long time ago. They have since sold it, I believe not all that long ago, and I have no idea if it's still in Japan at this time.
This one, not a Blumo but it sure could be, might be somewhere in Turkey. The comments translate to Turkish ...
