If you ever find yourself on State Route 33 West of Columbus headed West, you will run into the City of Marysville in about 20 miles. There is a small finger of the Ohio Valley that was unaffected by glaciers that razed the Western part of the state in the last ice age and snakes up through the area. It provides some welcome relief to what is otherwise a wide, flat and mostly featureless part of the state. The city is the capital of Union County. Among other things, Marysville is known as the home of one of the country’s largest auto plants owned by Honda (my brother works there). In addition they have another factory farther down the road in a town called East Liberty. They produce the majority of Accord and Civics sold in this country. When on the roads out there though, its not the Honda’s you need to watch out for…its the Dodges.
Specifically the Dodge Chargers driven by deputies of the Union County Sheriff’s Department!
I saw this parked in Columbus today (doing what there I don’t know, but it was parked across the street from the city complex which contains the main police department) and was so taken back by not only the car itself but the yellow and grey paint job I just had to take a pic! I generally do not care for Dodge/Chrystler products but they do have some attractive styling.
So, needless to say if you happen to see one of these in the rear view mirror with the lights going..no sense trying to run!
