in my chevelle no less...

i pulled in to a gas station, nice and easy, and as i parked, i noticed a patrol unit behind the last pump. they were looking at my car. i went inside and when i came back out they were still standing there staring. i just got in and fired it up, then as i was putting away...HEY!! YOU!!! i stopped and looked back a little at the two of them. one was grinning and the other said.. what you got in it? is it fast? you know, there's nobody around and we're from 'such and such' parish, so we wouldn't even DO anything to you if we tried. let her rip[ for us, i mean really get on it!! i thought twice about it, then did it anyways, and left a nice patch of rubber on that road by the gas station in the middle of nowhere.

Well, your run in was much better than mine. Going in to town today and stepped on the gas pedal of the new Mustang GT a little to hard and was clocked at 73 in a 55. Lucky for me I know someone in the DA's office and haven't had a speeding ticket in almost 5 years, so she took it easy on me. She told me I had to pay the $145 Court Fee though, and that check will be delivered tomorrow morning around 0900.

You shouldn't be pushing that f**d so hard, that's almost it's top speed there!

I've never heard of a mustang getting a speeding ticket, the tow truck must have been hauling a$$!

Did the cop pull over the kid on the tricycle you were racing also?

Ok, I got it out of my system!:D:thumbsup:

I shouldn't have been speeding to begin with and I do know better. I'm a role model to my children and they know about the ticket. I'm ashamed at what I did and to make matters worse, I could also get in trouble with the Marine Corps. So, I screwed up once and will get punished for it twice...PRICE I PAY FOR BEING STUPID.

Sometimes cops can be cool but most of the times they are jerks. I've had the same thing happen to me; they cannot arrest you because they told you it would be alright to do it. Think of it as a waiver.

It's just a speeding ticket. Doesn't make you a criminal. I wish I had a nickel for every cop I see violating the traffic laws.
An officer asked me the other day if my El Camino was pretty fast and I told him I didn't know. ;)

One day we were crusing in my buddy's '66 Mustang ( we were about 20 years old). We were sitting at a stop light, and when the light turned green my buddy nailed it, not enough to spin the tires, but quickly up to 50 in a 35 MPH zone... And here comes the police, lights and sirens...

My buddy, who is usally pretty nice, was a little arrogant (pretty much an idiot) with the officer, he wasn't even listening to the officer (I guess he figured he wasn't getting out of the ticket)... As the officer walked back to his patrol car to check my friends license, I had a little talk with my friend... It turns out, my friend wasn't paying attention; the officer was complementing him on his car and telling us how he had his own '66 Mustang at home he was working on... I told my friend to be really nice and talkative about the car. When the officer came back, we all struck up a conversation, getting out and opening the hood (well detailed engine compartment) and talking about the car...

My friend got off with a warning...

Many, many years ago I watched a Virginia State Trooper happen upon a couple of guys lining them up on the Interstate at 2:00am. These were 10 second street cars, 1 Chevelle, 1 Vega. The trooper told the drivers he was going to turn his back and that they'd better be gone before he turned back around. It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

I've never ever gotten a warning in my life with Reno PD and I've lived here since 1963. Now the Highway Patrol is another matter they have given my just warnings and when my car broke down on the freeway they called a tow for me and let me sit in the cruiser until the tow showed up. Every time I get pulled over by RPD they always ask me "Do you know what you did wrong"; I sometimes say in a nice tone "No, but you'll most likely tell me". or whatever and they also say things like "Aren’t you a little old to be driving a car like that", and then they write me up.... I've had my wife in the car and she will say afterwards "Boy that cop sure was rude to you", and I always tell her it been that way with RPD forever and it doesn't matter how I act.

I don't know about that. My dad had a '57 Ford with a 406 and a 4 speed. It ran a 12.90 at 114 I believe.

A couple nights in a row, I put the old Impala SS to the test on the freeway at high speeds. The following day my Grandmother wanted me to come over and help with a little yard work. While working in the yard she mentioned, she watched on the news that cameras were recording cars on the freeway in our area speeding in the tripple digits. That they were going to issue tickets to the drivers thru the mail. Well that was months ago and no ticket thus far. Thank God! Needles to say no more tripple digits at midnight on the freeway. Do you think Grannie thinks I'm a speed demon. Just had to share this one. Thanks
