I see alot of exotics/expensive cars around here. Some i've seen are bentley's (big 2 door ones, sometimes biiig 4 doors), F360's, F430, Ferrari enzo(red) best sound ever!, gallardo(fast!), maseratti something, skylines etc.

I've only tried racing the maseratti, and lost :(

just this morning I saw a real white R34 Skyline on I-4 westbound heading into Tampa. It had a nice body kit and big wing on the back and really caught me off gaurd when he passed me on the left and I saw him driving on the right side lol

I saw a state trooper on the side of the interstate while I was doing in excess of 150mph in my mr2. I came over a hill on a lonely Thursday night and there he was.

So what's the rest of this story?

I lit 'em up in the Miata right infront of a cop a month or so ago. He was exiting a parking lot, turning onto the street right behind me when I did it. It gave me that "aww ****" panic feeling in my chest and gut because he immediately rolled up behind me.... and did absolutely nothing

Just reminded me of a funny story:

Bike and Miata pull up to a stop light. Miata sounds like a firetruck siren, twin screw supercharger unthrottled. Bike rolls out, Miata keeps pace, Bike and Miata simultaneously get on it, banging gears.... Ooops There is Johnny Law... Motorcycle cop, He's looking none too amused with his hands on his hips and mirrored sunglasses... giving a very disapproving gaze. He already has someone pulled over but no doubt he heard both the bike and the supercharged Miata... How can you not hear it... You could hear it for blocks!!! We both dived on the brakes and coasted by at near the posted speed limit... I thought he would pop me, but he didn't.

After realizing that I could no longer be trusted with a 250 RWHP supercharged miata, I took the supercharger off my customers car while I worked out the other bugs with his install. I was going to go to jail otherwise, as the day before I had done a NASCAR style burnout in the local Taco Bell drive through as a unmarked patrol car pulled into the parking lot. I grinned and the cop just sorta smiled, I think he found the miata amusing.

maybe, mark, if you had an s/c miata you'd just have to make it look as girlie as posible. then they couldn't help but laugh it off and you get away with it.
