SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas drivers might have flashbacks this year if they are pulled over by certain Kansas Highway Patrol troopers.

The patrol has issued 14 cars to troopers that look like those used by the patrol in 1989. They are blue and gray Crown Victorias with a single red light on top.

The cars are being used to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the patrol. The Salina Journal reports they will stay in the patrol's fleet until they are retired at 49,000 miles.

The patrol says the cars might look old, but they have all the modern technology in other highway patrol cars.

The anniversary cars are among the last Crown Victorias the Highway Patrol will own, because Ford stopped making the cars in 2011.
