Or a camera.. I was actually surprised there were that many cars like that in this area. Other than the GTR, we don't have any dealers up here. I'm the operations director for a dealer group in the cities and Minnesota is not a big high end market likely due to our lovely 7 months of winter. I would have liked to take a spin in the McClaren and certainly have a modicum of admiration for the nsx pilot.There's an old saying amongst street racers "You can't outrun a Motorola"
I'm getting old as well. I can't help but think our generation had it best on the roads. A few mobile speed cameras, and even then you'd have to slow down approaching them because you'd have been blinded by all the headlamps being flashed at you.well chiiiiiit, 100 to 110 mph? i pooped faster than that in my old '91 Camaro RS before i had it scraped.
Hell, about have to drive 100 in New Orleans, or get ran over. I'd do about 80 and the natives pass me up like i'm standing still. :crying:
But, generally, these days, I cruise about 5 over speed. Getting old, I guess.

I had a BMW motorbike and speed limits were of academic interest only. If I was going at half over the limit I was cruising.
Nowadays I'm like you: 10% over is my limit.
Sorry, in those days it was 'radar'.They had cameras?
I have NEVER run from the boys in blue even when I could have ditched them with ease.
It's a question of respect, rather than morals (though them too).
When it goes wrong 'traffic' are generally the first responders.
There's no argument that you can give to ace their knowledge.
I admire your bravery. We must get together. When's your release date?When I get stopped, or "flashed", I pick one of the following questions to ask the officer/bobby, depending on their gender:
Nice shoes, do they make those for men/women too?
Does your boyfriend/girlfriend there travel with you always?
Does your mommy cut your hair, or do you do that yourself?
Or, the classic, Does your mommy know where you are right now?
It hasn't worked so far-I always seem to get a citation. But I'm still hopeful...
