Oh, no... it wasnt a streatch.... it is very populated here... we raced around 930 at night and there was heavy traffic.... ok so moderate... we started in my work parking lot and then raced to the freeway, 8 miles away, then got on the freeway until an exit closer to my work parking lot, got off and went back to the lot we started at... My radar did go off once, but i was going too damn fast for him to even have time to clock me... 110 mph, but as for running, i dont think i would run from the cops again.... i have before, but thats way too risky... i have officially retired from races like that, i won and thats enough for me... im back to my safe drag racing... lol. As for makin my car look bad, I WANT BLACKOUTS... does anybody know if anybody will make them for the 96-99 models??

Good story man. I have never been up against 2 other cars at the same time. So I give u much respect beating two other cars and for that far of a distance, and not getting pulled over also. It really amazes me the raw power of the bonnevilles, I know I have a 90 and at 181,000 miles she still cranks like a beast. Those trailblazers have been known to be quick, I know because we have alot where I am and those sebrings don't have much, at least I haven't seen one that does, although it does have a v6 in it. Great great kills though, way to show them up. Take care man, may the force be with you.

The cops around here dont try to catch up if your doin more than 90.... he'll clock me, but thats it, guess thats good... lol. The Trailblazers/Envoys are slow, im tellin ya... for the potential power they have, they're slow.... they are deac at higher speeds though.... and great for towing, but off the line, our Envoy blows

you guys are lucky. they'll catch anyone at any cost. Esepcially us guys with our decked out rides. The watch for us the most. I don't get alot of **** though because I have a bonnie and they seem to have more problems with all the importers, but I don't have a problem beating them. Yeah the trailblazers and envoys are decent at higher speeds, but compared to the bonnies off the line power, they don't got nothing on us.

When adminstration and members have ties to law enforcement, its going to be defended and the police do a hell of a lot of good and no one recognizes that, so I back Bill up on this item 100%

I was nabbed today, 77 in a 60, I goofed and paid the $50 dollar fine, they have a job to do and I respect that

Hey Dan, I don't think Bill with kill ya, just take a star or two :P

Oh hell, I'd rather be killed!


I agree with Bill also. I am one level below state police (training wise) and I generally get along well with policemen. However there are some that should have there badges taked away, the ones that like to pick on people expecially, and thats all I am gonna say bout that. Most cops that I have worked with are really good people and would give you the shirt off there back if they could. Its like everything else, it takes a few bad ones to make them all look bad. My boss was a policeman for over 30 years, nicest man I ever met.
