Read Oops!!

Coming home for lunch a light went orange so i gave it a bit so it wouldnt have been red while i was across. I dont think I could have stopped in time. Oops so there was UC coppers behind me. They followed be (I followed all road rules + speed limits as per usual) Pulled me over and went over the car. No complaints other than I will soon need 2 new tyres. No mention of the POD filter.
I guess i got 2 good cops. They could have fined me for speeding through the light but they didnt! So if u cops happen to read this (eafalcon.com sticker on the car) then THanks guys :)

had 2 lady cops follow me home in an umarked police car... i was doing burnouts (with my old 6 cylinder) after a slight drizzle... come into my driveway, cops come behind me... lady steps out... one blonde and brunette... the blonde was smiling... but the brunette did all the talking...

"why were you driving the way you were? do you know its a $1000 fine for doing burnouts?"

"sorry ma'am, somethings wrong with my clutch and i have to drop the clutch... you can have a go if you'd like?"

"do I look like a mechanic?! you have a week to show you have done work to the clutch..."


I was working at a mates workshop during the holidays... went to work the next morning, wrote me up a slip... signed it myself and sent it to the cops... no fine... hehehe...

Quiet... They are sleeping

I was on my way home the night before the drag meet in Heathcote, after staying up to 10pm doing work on the Falcon. I pulled up next to a kid in a Commodore, who revved his engine a bit, at the lights. I was pretty tired from working on the Falcon chasing down problems, and I just couldn't be stuffed, so I revved the engine once, and waited for the lights. The lights went green and the kid left some rubber behind, trying to impress me with his superb driving skills, I assume. Anyway, an unmarked cop car behind him then took off after him, and pulled him over, I just cruised on by, smiled and waved, and went on my merry way back to the air force base.

Sometimes I enjoy having coppers around...

Cheers........... Tim

I did the same thing sorta. A Guy in a GTS skyline looked at me so i did the usual inch the car forward to let him know it was on, I dropped it into D from 5k and we had a pretty even race (I was in a 2.5 auto Cefiro) then after we slowed I realised a cop was following and i could tell he was gonna pull us over. So I stopped at the lights and waited till there was only enough room for me to do a u turn so the other guy and the cop had to wait. I reckon the looks on both their faces were equally the same as i took off

I have to say, Female police are really uptight and crappy, always winging, complaining, Male police officers aren't bad. A lady copper gave me a ticket for stopping in a no stop zone at 12.30 at night, come on! I know its a no stop, but still, Male police have let me off on worse. Any female coppers on Forum, prove me wrong. Don't mean to be nasty, just saying.
