My 4 year old son has been asking me for the last month or so when I was going to pick him up from school in the "Orange" car. So with the roads finally dry from all the rain and snow melt and the temp hitting 60 degrees today I figured I'd break out my baby. She has been in the garage covered since the end of November. I pulled the cover off popped the trunk (incase she didn't have enough battery to start) climbed in and she fired right up. Battery had plenty of juice after sitting all winter. I didn't use a battery tender just figured I'd take my chances. My RPI mudflaps did a great job keeping her clean as my dirt/gravel driveway is still a mess.

She ran great and it felt great to be behind the wheel again well at least till I got picked out of about 5 cars as I litterly idled through town and got stopped by the local PD. :icon_evil:

Ok there's a part missing to this story, did you get a ticket and if so for what? Or was it just another cop wanting to oogle the car?

I'm a retired cop so no ticket and that's why I didn't ask him why he stopped me. He was young and the more I think about it, it might of been because of no front plate. I was driving at the same rate as everyone else about 42 or so in a 30 mph zone. I just don't want to keep getting stoped and get on their bad side. But being in a brite orange car I guess I can't really hide but that's why I drive slow through town. "Don't crap where you eat" kinda thing.
