Does anyone know what kind of lightbar this is?
It looks like a cross between the Federal Signal Vista and the Code 3 360.
It's a hard angle to tell, but it looks to me like a Vista, made by Federal Signal.

Thats what I thought at first, but compare it to this Vista off of the Federal Signal website.
The second may be it, but I don't think so
Here is another view of the questioned one

It looks like a Code 360 to me.

I initially thought it was a Code 360 from Code 3 as well. But you will notice that the Code 360 extends down a bit more from the outside edges:
I think it's actually a Whelen Delta. Notice the completely flat bottom: http://www.whelen.com/images/Lightbars/Delta/di4s800rcb.png
And, for what it's worth, I'm not 100% sure that the NYSP car has the same lightbar. I don't see the enlargements/bump-outs on the end (though it could just be an issue of perspective). It's also more rounded than a lot of the Code 3 products, which tend to have more sharp edges. I'm thinking it may be something from Signal Vehicle Products, like their Interceptor series: http://www.star1889.com/8400svp.htm
Okay, I'll go back to having no life now.

Yep, thanks, those are defenitley what they are. I'm not sure if the NYSP is different because the angle isn't great

Is it a Whelen Delta?
