WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- It's not every day you hear rapper Eminem's lyrics played in a police car.
But as the staff at Sounds So Good Car Audio started a Frederick, Md., police car on Wednesday afternoon, Eminem's music caused subwoofers in the back to literally pulsate.
The car won't be used to pick up criminals, but rather recruit potential officers at special events.
Staff at Sounds So Good Car Audio, which is on a lane across from Hooverville Elementary School, had few instructions from police beyond keep the car functional, but also "make it flashy and make it showy," Ryan Bryan said.
"They wanted it loud and to attract attention all around," he said.
Bryan said co-worker Ben Messler's expertise completely converted the Chevrolet HHR that arrived shortly before Christmas 2008.
Messler added splashes of color into the door panels, added lighted neon strips, installed a DVD system on the dashboard, put two video monitors into the back of headrests, and installed a DVD player and 12-inch monitor in the cargo area. The police badge appears as embroidered patches in a couple spots.
