Default i love my festiva. cops think its a joke

So i pull through dui check point last night and the cop did his normal "have you had anything to drink tonight?" speech. i dont drink so no worries there. the car in front of me apparently didnt have his drivers licence ready or some thing cause he was taking forever. me and the cop started BS'n and he asked why my interior was missing. not willing to miss an opportunity, i told him"Because Racecar". He laughed and replied with "well it sure is loud enough, have a nice night". Lmao

im starting to like the local PD's more and more

Ugh. Don't pour salt in my wounds.
Any time I go 1mph over I'm pulled over.
Any time you're busted doing 3rd gear burnouts and 100+ they tell you to have a nice night.

I hate you.

lol

i got pulled over for doing a mild 4 wheel drift across three lanes of traffic in front of a cop.

i got a lecture and my 3 friends in the car were giggling the whole time.

the cop finished his several-minute tirade by saying "You're lucky I don't have time to give you a ticket!"

yes, yes I was. embarassment > ticket.

My forester actually gets no attention either, despite having about 4x the power.

Miata, not so much.
Used to be that they didn't pay attention.
Now that every half retarded ricer kid figured out that they can pick up a miata for 2k and "hellaflush" it out and/or "drift it" times have changed.

So far I'm pretty safe in Atlanta owning a Miata.....luckily I don't own a shitty Magnum/Charger/Escalage/Suburban/Tahoe or any of the other hoodrat popular ghettmobiles that you can pull over and find something illegal with/inside. Cops are more concerned about them than me.

However... my license plate is another issue.

I really want to have something that has potential but wouldn't get looked at by enforcement no matter what I was doing...Like a old Galant VR4, Dodge Omni GLH, Dodge Colt/Mitsu Mirage turbo, old Legacy wagon....

I'm surprised that plate made it through the system. I'd have figured they would stop requests like that.

You want an 88-92 MX6 GT Turbo. Retardedly fast for peanuts, bulletproof, and 100% invisible.

Bonus points for an 88-92 626 GT Touring. Same car, but in a frumpy hatchback sedan body.

Mine has stickers all over it, is red, has white wheels, slammed, with the exhaust dumping out the side of the front bumper in front of the passenger tire, and cops don't give me a second glance, even when i'm spewing raw fuel out the side of my car in traffic doing my best diesel impression.

Hands down one of the best car purchases i've ever made. ($900) Cheap as ****, reliable as hell, and a riot to boot. And my sig doesn't lie. This thing facefucks my MSM with extreme prejudice.

One of my favorite stories was during the 3 week period in which I got pulled over 4 times (none of them specifically for speeding) in my Evo8. I was approaching a four-way stop intersection with a cop car approaching from the opposite direction. I was driving mildly and put the car in neutral to coast to a stop. I started my slow "three Mississippi" mental count and hoped for the cop car to go first, but it just sat there. Lurking.

I starting to cross the intersection and bam! On go the lights. It was like the scene from Super Troopers. "I can't pull over any more! I'm already pulled over!" I was literally stopped from a near-stop.
