Whether it's maroon and white in Minnesota or blue and white in Wisconsin, State Patrol cruisers are an unmistakable sight on area highways.

But how do the local State Patrol styles compare to the rest of the country?

Minnesota and Wisconsin State Patrols are competing in American Association of State Troopers' 2017 Best Looking Cruiser Contest. The cruiser photo with the most Facebook "likes" will be presented the Best Looking Cruiser Award and featured on the cover of AAST's 2018 wall calendar.
