Default Invisable to Radar agian.. Stupid sunfire.

I was crusin' down a nice little road with just a few cars on there, and a pull up to a stop light next to some girl in an old sunfire. I think nothing of it, I mean come on it'* a sunfire. So she takes off at the light. She gets about a 6 car legnth jump before i even start. Of coarse i drag her down and pass her and am going about 80 in a 45. Right as i reach the top of this hill we both pass a cop who turns his blue lights on and turns around. I slow down quickly to 45, but the girl flys past me and laughs. Guess she didn't see the cop. So the cop flys past me and pulls her over. As i pass i look at her and give her a nice smile, and a chuckle. Thing was i was infront when we passed the cop, so i was sure that i was getting busted. Amazingly i've been driving for 4 years, no tickets, no wrecks, and only been pulled over once for spinning my tires in a parking lot. Didn't even get a warning for that one though, just a friendly talkin to.

That was smart of you to slow down when you saw him comin.
She got pulled over cause she didn't. Stupid is as stupid does.

I've had a couple close calls at high speed before too. Lets just say I don't race on the weekends that much anymore.

But I do have some fun on the highway. A Daewoo was on my A$$ for about 40-50 miles yesterday on my way to the Ontario BC meet. He tried to pass me the whole time. Every time he made an attempt I just left him in the dust at 90mph. Good thing I didn't run into any police.

I think the plastic fenders do alot for radar 'invisibility'. I've had a couple near misses that should have been tickets.

I had another one today, too. I got nailed, both detectors going mad, didn't get slowed down quick enough, never saw him. He never came after me. I was a good 20 over.
