Gotta ask, was that you driving like you stole it in the autocross track?

I was sitting all the way over in the stands on the 1/4 mile watching a red fourth gen with stripes tearing it up.

I'd take an LS cobalt over my POS hyundai (yes, thats a trim level ) any day of the week. Round trip was just over 2200 miles.

That was me if it was between 2-3pm. Funny you mention watching me from the strip stands because over at the autocross the staging guy says to me "Didn't I just see you putting the beat down on cars over on the strip?".

Mustang kept going because cop wanted the winner. I am happy with the ticket, it was my first speeding ticket and I was surprised I made it 7 months.
Really? What color was the GT500? Can any of your other caravan members corroborate your story? Video?

Agree with you there. Wouldn't catch me dead in a Hyundai.

The Ram twin disk uses metal stanchions for the floaters, which rattle when the clutch pedal is depressed. This would be where the noise came from. Vinnie will more than likely be sending the clutch to ram to have it diagnosed once the new one is put in so we can see what happened.

My fruity father inlaw opened his door right into Cyn's door at a rest stop. Pretty good dent. He wanted to hide in the woods!

1 Rock chip in the windsheild and a hellofa lot of tread off my front tires during the auto-X. All together though, I should have gotten 4 tickets - the police-gods were very generous to me.

Defense? What the hell are you talking about? I couldn't care less about what kind of car he might have raced; I have serious doubts the events he stated happened at all, or at least different than he stated.

I asked what color the car was because I know quite a few people along the I-10 corridor that have GT500's and thought it could have been one of them he raced.

I don't see any cop letting anyone going 100+mph off with just a ticket written for a lower speed, especially if he was racing. And the comment about the LEO wanting to get the winner is just asinine.
