It's an iconic part of British history made famous in TV shows like Dixon of Dock Green and Z Cars and causes a stir wherever it goes.
But for owner Brenda Lane, the 1963 Morris Minor 1000 police panda car is her everyday run around.
The classic-car lover bought the decommissioned vehicle 11 years ago and it has become a local celebrity ever since.
Mrs Lane who lives in Kingsteignton, near Newton Abbot in South Devon, with her husband Richard, said: "I drive it everywhere – it's my everyday car.
"I've got three other classic cars, but I drive this one all the time.
"People are always stopping to have a chat about it. Just this morning I went to the supermarket and parked in the car park and somebody asked me if they could take a photo of it."
She added: "It happens all the time – it seems to leave an impression.
"It's a perfectly legal vehicle. The local police are all aware of it. I spoke to them recently and was told they get lots of calls about it asking if it's legal.
"It's parked on my driveway at home.
"One day I came home and there was a man stood there who asked if he could use it in a TV show he was making.
"It's appeared in Heartbeat and the Comic Strip's The Hunt For Tony Blair. It's in demand."
