    Anyway I don't know what i was thinking because i normally pull over. But it was 100 in a 55 so i panicked. There was maybe one car i passed the whole time. I did 155 then slowed to 95 at the split and then back up to 155 no problem. I was surprised how well the car handled the whole time.

    I won't be driving my car for a while, it's snowing here now and I won't take it out. I have a POS isuzu trooper for dd. But the brake lights don't light up when you brake so i'm gonna get pulled over in that eventually anyway.
    it'll go past it a little bit, yes

    i have ran from the cops a few times, some times on the bike and a few in one of my cars, never been caught but i finally smartened up,

    fyi if you are running and the dumb ass pig chasing you hits someone and they die its just like you killed them, so then you go away for manslaughter, just remember that the next time you wanna run, just pull over and man up.

    Well i ran under the circumstances that were at hand. I did pass on car from where i saw the cop and got to my house. It was late at night and i know there was no way he saw my plates. Like i said in the OP i normally pull over and respect cops, I don't get smart with them or bitch unless they try to pin me for something I didn't do. Even then i talk to them respectfully and try to solve the situation instead of being a dick and making it worse.

    Well.. I guess Ill add my couple of stories..
    First...i was doing about 125 racing a couple of buds on the parkway in the middle of the night in my military blazer...i was like 1/4 mile from the exit so we started easing off and then a car way off in the distance pulls into the median. and i see someone jump out... and then i notice is a crown vic... with a giant KY seal on the side.. so we know were screwed. he pulls in behind me (i was in the middle) and my bud gets on the cops butt.. anyway i use all the signals and look while exiting and he turns on his spotlight and starts to pass me on the shoulder.. Then my bud behind him run the stopsign at the exit ramp and drifts around it... so the cop does a uturn and snags him.. so running the sign.. so i punched it and disappeared into suburbia for about 30 minutes..i get a phone call and find out that the cop gave him a ticket for running the stop sign but he knows his parents so if his parents call him..(hes like 23) hell get rid of the ticket.. and he tells him that his two friends needs to slow the "fudge" down...lucky lucky we are.
    about a mile from my house there is a truck stop and i was doing about 85 in a 35 at 3 oclock in the morning.. again... when i see about 6 stateboys hidin in the middle of two truck trailer... i see blue illuminate the adjacent area so i just punch it and dont let off until i hit the driveway and i turn off my car and about 10 seconds later see them scream by the driveway. w00t

    That pic was taken after i had recked, that was on my Black 99 SS.
    I couldnt help but snap a pic.

    The Speedo got caught on the voltage meter or it may have gone a bit farther lol

    The reason the Gauges sweep is either you need to charge the batt. or check connections, My current SS did that until i put it on a batt. tender for the night and it went a way
