When I was out driving today, I pulled behind a car that was stripped of its markings. (ex. Chevy Cobalt emblem and chevy Logo) And it also had a body kit on it, so all you could tell is what color it was. The only way to tell what kinda car it was would be to run the plates or VIN. If it were to be involved in a crime, and someone tried calling it in, all they would be able to give was the color. Is it Legal to do that? I would hope not.
Just worries me sometimes when I see these things that are out of the norm.

Well HOT seems that you where able to identify it still... :) If you know enough about cars it’s not hard to ID it even with markings stripped and body kits… Just my .02¢

Custom Cars are going to be easier to spot. The fact it doesn't have badges and has a body kit will make it easy to spot. There are other things to consider is the car new or old, how many occupants in the veh, 2 DR or 4 DR. This all also depends on your RP. Most will not know a Chevy from a Nissan. A well trained call taker will get as much info as possible even if the caller thinks it may not be important.

When I was younger, in my teens, I could tell you the model of about every car on the road. Today, I couldn't do that. I know a lincoln town car, mercury grand marquis, ford crown vic, and a handful of others. If there were no markings, I would be lost. I would only be able to give a brief description. Great question, H.O.T. I wonder if that is legal.

Thnik about it this way. An ATL is put out say a 1999 Chevy Lumina 4dr White in color. How many cars on the road would match that. Or ATL on a Red Compact Car 2DR Custom Body Kit with 2 people in the car. Which one would be easier to spot. Sometimes less is more.

True sometimes less is more, Because your limiting the other options. Good point.
