Of all the former police cars out there, the B4C Camaros and the '94-'96 9C1 Caprices were my favorites, though I do like the old Diplomats as well. Having driven both the P71 CVPIs and the LT1 powered Caprices back to back, the Caprice launched harder and cornered better than the CV. The CV could be a lot of fun though, if you knew how to use the body roll to "steer with the rear".

My new favorite is this one, my personal ride and nowhere near retirement.





Ridiculous fast and very stable. My old CV would get 10 MPG around town and not much better on the highway. This gets between 14-16 around town on patrol and 22 MPG cruising the interstate at 80 MPH. Running wide open on the speed limiter though, you can watch the needle on the gas guage fall like a rock!

You may want to look at vehicles from Kansas. Some years back they passed a law that requires all emergency service vehicles to be retired at 50k miles. We used to get our used patrol cars out of Kansas for years, at half the cost of new, complete with all the maintenance records. I don't know if they do private party sales though.
