Black and white, white and black, what's the difference?
Plenty, say Tulsa, Okla., police after learning that half of the 90 new squad cars had the colors reversed."I went out the other day and looked at one and boy, was it ugly," said police Sgt. Ollie Harris.
Tulsa police cars are black with white tops, doors and trunk lids. Harris said 45 new squad cars, which he called "ugly turtles," had the colors the other way around.
Riverside Chevrolet won the contract to provide 45 of the 90 new cars that police ordered in July. Harris said the color mix-up happened at the factory.
The white-and-blacks are being sent to a New Jersey dealership, where they will be sold to a police agency there, officials said.
