Another thread reminded me of this.

Three summers ago I had just finished all the body work on my Challenger (it was in classic red and grey primer with some yellow bondo splashes for just the right “I’m in the middle of this project and do not have any more money for it right now” stage.

I did not have my twin snail lsx in it at the time, I simply had the stock 440 with old magnaflows hooked up, mickey Thompson cheater slicks and no glass besides the rear glass set it place. At the time it was still registered to my then girlfriends grandfather who lived two states away (I had not actually purchased the car from him yet). The vehicle had not been inspected that year (for obvious reasons).

Anyway, I had been tuning the 440 all weekend and finally got it where it was responsive and just right early on a Sunday morning. I was really excited about this and decided against my better judgment to take her out for her maiden voyage around my block, on to a 45 mph street.

I came to a stop and a 06 or 07 chevy Malibu pulled up behind me. I thought nothing of it until he proceeded to tail gate me for a mile or two with what felt like 1 foot of distance between my rear end and his front license plate. We came around a bend and I put some distance between him and I (I probably hit 80ish or more), this continued for another mile, then all of a sudden he lit me up, an under cover cop.

I pulled over, turned off the car and reached for my wallet for which I remembered I decided not to bring with me for a 5 min joy ride. He approached the car wearing business casual attire, asked for my license and registration for which I had neither, noticed the car was registered to another man of a different name two states away (by running the then expired plates). When he walked up to the car I knew I was going to have a boat load of violations, yet he just leaned inward, smiled and said the following that I will never forget, “This would look fantastic in classic Mopar Plum Purple when you’re done; try and keep her below 50 next time.” He walked away, pulled a u turn and left.

I got away with at least 6 violations, counted my blessings that afternoon.
