This car is historically significant and extremely low-production. It is the first time a "pony car" was used by a police organization for regular patrol / pursuit duty in the USA (1971-1979). It was special-ordered by the Alabama Department of Public Safety for use by the State Troopers. Only 71 cars were built in 1971, and 61 in 1972

What's that on the lower righthand corner?

The picture was probably pasted together from a series of frames.

Tonz is correct. The camera pans from left to right and slightly upward while very close to the car, so I had to take several captures, and reassemble the car that way. I did the same for the shot of the car from the front (behind the IH SUV) which is why a remnant of the trooper's uniform remains in the top/right corner. :)

Thanks to Walter for getting this added.
