It pays to drive an "old people car"

Ok so sometimes people make fun of my car saying its an old people car even though most of them say its nice. Maybe its the color which im not to fond of anyways(I want silver :(!!), but either way most people my age (17) want some kind of sporty car. But hell I like big luxury but sporty looking cars thats why im buying a spoiler for the concorde.

Anyways today im driving on a major road going around 55+mph in a 45mph, its a six lane road with three on each side. I was in the far left lane, and Expedition was in the middle and an older neon with a fart can, spolier and all that in the right. There was a cop sitting in a residential street like always but for some reason I always forget that.

So we were all going about the same speed since we were even with each other when we saw the cop move from a stop. We all were slowing down from about 60 in a 45 since we all saw the cop. As the cop got in the center lane we were all in panic looking back and the cop turned on the lights and went into the right lane. I was in a huge relief and actually saying "thank god i drive an old people car, hahaha" it was pretty funny but even the person in the Expo was like "thank god". Moral of the story it pays to drive an old people car over a fart-can-mobile anyday.

Gee, hate to break up the side view pic sig orgy, but this happens to me all the time! Just today I was doing 50 in a 35 and went past a cop who just sat there and watched me go by. I was late for work too, so I'm damn glad I drive an old peoples car ...even if it doesnt sound like one.

Pass a cop breaking the law and NOT get pulled over? Must be a Caucasian thing, anytime I pass a cop doing something illegal (whether it's a moving violation or equipment related) I usually have the blues behind me. Of course driving in the state with the highest fine average doesn't exactly help either.......

LOL, I was pulled over so many freakin times in the Trep, you wouldn't believe. But at least I almost always was let go with just warnings. Hell, I got pulled over for having my sirius satellite radio mounted to the far upper right hand corner of my windshield where it wouldn't obstruct my view.

I even got pulled over without actually being pulled over. I got out of my Trep to go use the ATM machine and got pulled over on the sidewalk! WTF is up with that?

But I gotta say though that I must be losing my mean look. I went into a gov't building the other day and the metal detector went off and the security guard just waved me on thru and didn't even check to see if I had a weapon. I mean, I was almost insulted by the gesture. Did he not think I was capable of popping a cap in someone's ass? Must be getting old.

I won't be surprised with Raptor if I'm the one that gets pulled over... it doesn't look like a "grocery getter" anymore... although the rims still do lol!

I remember someone on the forums told me "that body kit goes "growwwwl"" but the wheels go "honey what would you like me to get from the grocery store?"

I like the stock rims, don't get me wrong, I just can't wait to put on the wheels in my sig.
