a Charger wants to play on right.

Fun starts at 60 seconds.

I did not want to beat him off the line in case he did not want to play

Notice at about 1:12 Sheriff Deputy going the other way.
Quick! To the Bat Cave! :D

In New York City, you can get a green light at Bowery Park and drive at least 180 blocks/streets before you have to stop.

Police in sleepers ! That's not nice. Less of a worry here. Here we have "sleeping policemen" on local estates & back urban roads all over. No fun on a low car ! And, speed cameras everywhere. Fixed, and mobile. They also "hide" mobile speed cameras in vans, on motorway bridges, etc. So, as you come around that curve on the motorway at 90, Your nicked ! :frown:

I was expecting some '50s music on the radio, but left disappointed.
If i leave the music on, most are c opyrighted and if i leave the music, they either put ads or will remove the music anyway. They let you choose some generic not c opyrighted music but those stink :D

Jeff’s car is reasonably good for competing with slow cars. Remember, he’s an old fuddy-duddy and would never want to do anything that’s actually exciting. After all, he would “never” break a law on the road! Them military types always uphold United States law. I appreciate Jeff showing us how us old folks can be legends in their own mind. LOL >:D

Nice thing about an R170 is no FDR and the Teleaid is analog and does not work.

Also in Florida we have no front license plates. (We do have polarized covers for the rear license plate "to protect it from the sun").

What we do have is roads made of asphalt mixed with shell aggregate (we have A Lot of shell). This makes for a fractal surface and the grip must be experienced to be believed (except at stoplights where the AC condensate mixes with oil and creates "Florida Ice". Those experienced watch for dark patches at intersections.

When I was a kid I could not understand smoky burnouts. Then I discovered pimp juice.
