wow this car attracts WAY to much attention...

Ok, long story short, i met a girl 2 days ago, we were gonna go out tonight... i was on my way to pick her up and it was kinda tricky to find her place (plus i've got a girl giving me directions... go figure) anyway i end up turning around once and going into the wrong complex once until i finally get close, then have to turn around again.... and then.... lights in my rear view...wtf
apparently i got pulled over for "suspicion of evading police" really?! is this a real thing? haha... i think you would know if i was evading you cause im pretty sure if i wanted to outrun a cop i could (not that i would ever even attempt it, but still) i guess he was down the street oncomming when i made the first turn-around and followed me from there. so i politely explain im picking up this girl for the first time, blah blah blah and lets me off
but wow this car attracts ALOT of attention. i dont even wanna get tints or exhaust anymore just for that reason... thank god i've got a firefighter ID to get me out of the silly stuff

just a funny story i thought i would share

anyone else get pulled over for super random stuff? im sure we'll have a few more funny stories

"Suspicion of evading police?"

I'd be like "Dude, I'm not doing anything wrong. Why the hell would I try to evade you? Ego much?"

yea his exact quote was "i thought you were trying to loose us" or something to that effect... in my head i thought "really?"
its a little suburb outside of the city so they make their money on every little ticket they can write... if i was the cop i would have known i was lost just by me turning around on a random block, pulling into some crazy church assisted living type complex and then turning in at the very next apartment complex... it was 2 younger cops so they kinda laughed about it thank god, but still i've had cops follow me before during the day when i was doing nothing wrong and shifting at 2K
i guess thats what you get for having a nice car and being young

i guess i can see how it was kinda shady the way i was driving because i obviously didnt know were i was going, but i dont think i ever broke 35 mph at any point in time

i just didnt get were he thought i was trying to "evade" him haha

haha! yea, and plus being in such an obvious car doesnt help... i would NEVER even think of trying to run from the lights, but seriously, i never went over 35 mph as i was trying to read addresses and trying to figure out where the hell this girl was telling me to go.

i just ment it in a way that a cruiser wouldnt be able to catch a camaro, and that i was in NO WAY trying to "evade" him...
1 on 1... im sure the camaro would destroy a crown vic... however its not 1 on 1... its 1 vs alot with radios haha...

i was just sayin...ya know?! haha

I know, wasn't suggesting you were gonna try it or anything. Would especially not recomend trying it in the Chicago area. I've got away from the cops a couple times (back when i was a stupid high school punk), but only because it was a sure thing. Around here the radio isn't near as quick as say Chicago. The next officer could be 20-30 miles away.

Know the feeling well, every time the wife and I take both cars out and play follow the leader we always get followed by one or two cops. They seem to think we are going to start racing or causing trouble of some sort. Kind of cracks me up, and I hope it's her that gets the first ticket, she's kinda hard to keep up with at times ...

what date he was lost the whole night lol. And to the op yeah i got pulled over once after a cop followed me about 4 miles down a stright road. Never went over 50 didnt go over any lines nothing. So i see the lights and think oh hes going some where so i pull over a litlle and so does he... IM like wtf i do?? He walks up to my door and tells me that its going to rain today and blah blah about safe driving. So after looking in my truck as he is talking to me just trying to find something to make this work for him he sees a little crack in my wind shield. I mean tiny less then 2 inchs on the bottom right side. Gives me a 78 dollar ticket for it. I respect cops and they have a hard job but really dude? i just paid it and got a new wind shield just sucks i had to go down town and have the truck inspected. Which cost me even more to have a cop walk out go yeah its ok and walk inside.

I thought they had to be chasing or following before accusing you of attempted evade!

Most police don't even act like they see mine. I have no plate on the front and it's require in Oregon where I live.

A couple weeks ago though, I was at a red light in the left lane and a state trooper pulls up in the left turn lane next to me but half a car ahead. After maybe 15 seconds, he backs up till he's even with me. I look over and he rolled his window down so I rolled mine down too. He asks me what kind of exhaust I had, I kinda froze for a moment wondering why he's asking. Then I told him how it's got ARH headers, a cold air intake and a cam and dyno tune. His response was "that thing sounds sweeeeeeeeeeeeet".
I said thanks and my light turned green and I gunned it a little so he could hear more.

Nearly a year and we still get a lot of attention. Sweet car, The Camaro is.

Not sure if you know, but it's "whether" and "always".
