Sorry. the details aren't really the most exciting. I guess this thread was just my way of bragging about getting to chase people down on the street in a blown mustang. I mean, com'on, wouldn't you?wow what an interesting story
Lol, I'm waiting for that too. I was an expert pistol shooter and a designated marksman on a CQB team in the Marines so Im pretty well covered there too:winksI give cops all the credit in the world for doing there sick ass job & never knowing when some gang bangin little pull your F'n pants up ****** might want to try out his bonny & clyde shoot 'em out deal! I miss the days when you didnt have the police radio to outrun. They have definitely learned alot from the past, as have most of us.:kooky:
all of you guys are going to hate me for this but i outran a cop once in my 96 z28. Well kind of out ran a cop i guess. my nieghbor across the street was a cop, i was coming home from work doing 70 in a 60. i saw he turn his lights on about a 1/2 mile back and i gunned it. by the time i got back home he had already beat me and him and my parents were in the front yard waiting on me. he gave me a warning and my parents gave me a beating lol. learned my lesson really quick. he did say for a chevy it was very fast.That's what I like about that blown stang we got. I might not be able to initiate a "pursuit", but I can sure as hell catch up to ya QUICK.
When I finished one of those stops mentioned earlier (one of the girls that cried actually), I saw a pickup drive by that was hauling about a 15ft roll of carpet that had buckled in the middle, and was dragging on the ground. Well I felt in needed to inform him so it didn't fall out and possibly hurt someone, so I went after him. The truck had about a mile head start, and the car I just stopped was about 200 yds away by the time I got moving, and by the time I passed the car that just took off (didn't take long), I was doing about a buck 15ish.
I never did find the carpet dragger though, which makes me think he turned somewhere. I dont think it would take long to catch up doing 125+ on a long flat hwy. (remember, I have extensive professional level driver training, and I ONLY did it to prevent possible civilian cassualty [or at least inconvenience:gringreen]. Afterall, us boys in brown have the responsibility to do things we dont want to for the sake of public safety).
there are still some good cops out there.I had a pinnelas county sheriff pull up next to me w/ my 408 powered nitrous tbird, Iheard him rev his crown vic n neurtal over the top of my near 700 lift cam monster, I looked over & he had this huge **** eating grin on. When the light turned he layed into it, I figured what the hell!! I put it to the wood, in about .3 seconnds I blew by him ( this car runs 8's on m/t dr's) w\ no traffic to be seen, I stopped @ the next light & waited for a little bit for him. By the time he pulled up he yelled "HOLY ****" pointed me into the gas station & talked about my car for about an hour! He loved it & explained he didnt mind us older rodders doing some stop light to stop light action, they have it out for these little ****** import kids racing in & out of traffic. That was a fun cop!:kooky::bigthumbsup
Amen! Be careful when you say "they" though. There is no standard among us. Believe it it or not, we don't sit around brainstorming about who we're gonna hate and all that. I have a fellow deputy here that has a hardon for front plate and muffler violations. Both of which he would have ticketed me for if he saw my bird or my fox. I personally wont give a ticket for less than 12 over and wont even stop for less than 8, but I've been stopped myself for 6 over. Cops aren't pre-programed drones. We have different values like anyone else. I don't like safety issues like headlight and tail light defects. So be careful still, one says ok, another might haul you away in cuffs.:bigthumbsupHe loved it & explained he didnt mind us older rodders doing some stop light to stop light action, they have it out for these little ****** import kids racing in & out of traffic.
