He was probably wondering why you were trying to ruin your car by racking the rpm up to 5 grand in 1st gear. With 320lbs of torque in a 3500lb car thats crazy.
Just out of curiosity, how much does a 16-17 year old pay for insurance with 'stang GT?? bet its more per month than the car payment!

Anyone who makes a blanket statement such as the one made about cops has absolutely no room to talk whenever a generalization is made about teenage boys and fast cars. It's the exact same argument, just over different topics. I agree that there are some cops who are jerks. Not all of them though. Just like there are many teenage boys with fast cars who are careless and irresponsible with them, but not all.

Revving up to 5K rpm in the GT will get pretty loud, and you can attract(in this case) unwanted attention. I have a friend with a Mazda RX-8, and I followed him late the other night through a relatively empty urban/business area. He was accelerating quite fast, and I was hesitant to keep up with him(but I easily could) since my car is louder than most. After we arrived at our destination, I remarked to my friend that I can't drive that fast when the area is that quiet, as I was sure that I would attract law enforcement. And with the type of car I drive(and paint job), I don't expect any mercy. I have emphasized that to my 16 year old son who drives a 2006 V6 Mustang, and he is deathly afraid of being pulled over as well(I suppose that's a good thing).

One time when I was followed by a cop, he just wanted to admire the car and give me kudos. Scared me to death though when he followed me all the way into my work parking lot!

In this case, I think the cop abused his position of power, but since it's only happened one time, it would be hard to prove anything illegal at this point. Plus, a cop vs a teenager in a Mustang GT? We all know who would win(doesn't mean Sanctus is guilty). I have witnessed first hand that some cops can be power-hungry and use their position to promote their own agenda, to the detriment of children. Doesn't mean all cops are bad, but try explaining that to a 13 year old girl.

absolutely not...if hed stopped the kid like normal cops do then it would be just another cop stoppin somebody...but noooo, this weirdo had to follow the kid home and then wait till he knew the kid was alone...why do i say that? cause the kid not only had time to park his car and get to his door but even start to make a meal before the cop came callin...thats why i say MAKE A COMPLAINT...cause his fellow cops probably would like to know what this guy is doin...they'll probably at least give him a talk in the locker room cause most cops are pretty cool

Yeah technically "My Car" is a 95 GMC Suburban 1500. So add a few hundred every 6 months to insure that aswell.

I'm 47 years old, and probably look it, too. What's up with that? I think for some reason, some of them seem to have a problem with persons driving high-powered cars. It's almost insulting.

Have any of you who are older been harrassed in any way like me???
I'm 59 and the same thing has happened to me more then once. Especially in New Jersey.
