In the past five months ive gotten pulled over twice.
First time they ran my plate wrong, it came back suspended, i was pulled over my car was the towed and impounded, but after a $150 impound and towing fee my plate came back fine and i was found not guilty of all charges.

Second time, was in a mini cooper, yeah a mini. My cousin had me drive it from the car auction to his car dealership. My foot got stuck on the stupid paper floormats dealerships out in cars and because my boots were to big for the car my foot slipped off the clutch and it chirped first gear when the light turned green. I was pulled over for spinning tire on a highway under the street racing ordinance.....in a mini cooper

HAHA! Dude you got screwed. My only ticket (which my mommy doesn't know about) was when I was on a highway interchange and I was on the entrance ramp getting on to a highway going 60. Well the cop pulls me over and says I was going 70 (that's BS but I don't want to get my ass tasered). Anyway, he tells me the speed limit is 50 on that one mile stretch of the interchange but the speed limit is posted before the entrance ramp so people coming on don't know what it is until the next sign which is a good 2-3 miles down the road. Oh well, defensive driving wasn't so bad.

P.S. Oh, and on a completely different note. My high school cop threatened to shoot me my freshman year. Needless to say I didn't egg his car for my senior prank.

there was this one time i was going down this road where the speed limit is 45 and there are lots of lights. I was going 65-70 cause i was really late for work. yeah i drive fast lol. anyways the light in front of me turns yellow, and the car in front of me that i was rapidly gaining on decides to brake. The car ahead of that one in the other lane goes through, so i go around the car in front of me a gun it through the light. It turns red just as i'm ENTERING the intersection. At this point I'm definitely going over 70. The first car in the right lane sitting at the light was a cop. I just about poo myself. It was the scariest thing ever... but he didn't come after me.

haha I should have at least 5 tickets for the way i drive...

I drive an '01 civic but I'm looking at an 600cc shadow. Sucks that I got laid off though. Now I can't buy a shadow. But my being laid off freed up my time so I could build Tornado Mini. Maybe there is a master plan that I don't know about.

Dan, those are some pretty nice specs minus the transmission. I mean it's no muscle car and I doubt you turned it into a rice burner but its a nice civic.

My dream car is the GT-R. I'm sorry, but I'm in love with it. I like it so much, when I went to the Dallas auto show, I actually stared at the car and not the brainless model standing in front. cyclops
Although Britney was nice enough to let me have 3 poster so I shouldn't say that...or was it Shannon? I don't know, but it was one of them.

Realistically I'll probably stick with civics and accords. OHHHH the new accord coupe is sick! I was practically drooling at the auto show.

I'm going to have to go with the GT-R as well - supercar performance, in a (dramatically more) affordable package.
