So a Twister Orange GT is a PoPo magnet for sure!

It's winter-ish in Indiana and I've had the GT mothballed in the garage for a bit. It hit 44 the other days so my gal and I decided to runs some errands (no parking and leaving) plus little country drive in the area to keep the GT going. We're headed out a twistly local farm road and I passed local popo in their SUV going the other way. I was doing about 40 mph in straight and curves. I kept checking the rear mirror and dang if he'd didn't show up as I was leaving a long straight stretch headed to another curvy part. I maintained legal speed but he was way back, finally dropped off after seeing I was keeping the peace. Next headed down another local road when our Metro popo turned in after I made my turn, 35 mph area. Man I clocked in at 33 or 34 mph for 3 or more miles with him like 4 to 5 car lengths back just following and following. Came to an intersection, went right, he did too, again us doing the 3 under-the-limit two step til I hit a circle and went left and he finally gave up. Man o man still being a newbie to my TO GT it gets me how much of a jerk or popo magnet this car can be. Still it was nice to take the GT out for a cruise. ;)

Only cops interested in me are the ones wanting to know more about my car.

I know most of the area cops and I have done a little donating to their Department in the form of car work.
A little PR both ways is a good thing.

On the highway it's the wifes dark grey Lexus RX350. As stealthy as it gets. I am not even sure it registers on radar.

Just gun it. When a PoPo pulls you over, accuse them of being a poor sport for losing. Bam! No ticket....works everytime 🤙
Okay not gonna try that one, sport.

Today I was surrounded by 4 cop cars. Both hands on the wheel with a smile. I was behaving and they left me alone. Was lunch time and they had better things to do. Plus I tried to be quiet, damn exhaust..

...yea, down there they choose you for a ticket.
ANYTHING they can get you for, you've had it. Especially OoS.

Virginia is as bad as well.

I don't really worry about it and my car is LOUD AF and a *bright* color. I regularly drive around in track mode just for the exhaust note (I have AE, headers, type S Borla catback). I've only been pulled over once in either of my mustangs and that's because I hit 115 on the freeway when some asshat pissed me off. (He cut me off and slowed down). When I floored it to get away from him I got pulled over by a yellow S550 and this was Christmas day. I got a warning because the dickhead who cut me off was the guy the POPO was after. I just took it too far.

I have a twister orange gt and don’t feel this way lol. I think police are more interested in riced out Hondas and dodge chargers.
Ya the Dodge Brother's do run point when it comes to the Constabulary.
