The DRAGG “Thin Blue Line” Mustang was customized and built by the students of DRAGG in Oxnard, California.

The “Thin Blue Line” was displayed at SEMA 2015 and has appeared at Barrett Jackson 2016 in Phoenix, and other tour stops.

“DRAGG is honored to be partnered with ITW Global Brands at SEMA this year. Working with great companies like ITW is what helps our program grow,” said Sergeant Charles Woodruff, Personnel and Training Unit, DRAGG Director, Oxnard Police Department. “It shows our students the fundamentals of working in the industry from the build of our projects to the final showcase. It keeps them engaged in the process and hopefully a mentorship to continue in the industry.”
