    What should the officer do and what should the penalty be?




    Multiple choice, public vote.



    Anyone who is stupid enough to drive like that on a public highway shouldn't have a driver's license, and should pay a heavy price for their stupidity.

    51 years of sun will do that to a girl.

    I am trying to get some of the surface rust off of her to protect the paint, but I get tired so quickly, I can't get much done myself, and I won't let anybody touch her.

    She is an amazing car though. After 20 years of sitting without moving an inch, I got her to where I am now on tow trucks, added a battery and a fuel line to a gas can, and started and ran fine. No leaking radiator and even the fuel pump Works fine. I can drive her anywhere like she is. I don't think anybody else can say they can drive a car that had been sitting for over 20 years without fixing a lot of stuff. I did have the front end rebuilt, but she needed that back when I was driving her in high school. The original owners drove her from 1963 to 1977 and parked her in front of the house. I bought her in 1982 and have put on very few miles. She runs better now tan she ever did with me.

    Remember she is Christines Little sister, just 5 years apart, same car. They both have an attitude sometimes.

    She is very similar to my avatar, just a sedan instead of a 4 door hardtop.

    Tach it up, tach it up
    Buddy gonna shut you down

    It happened on the strip where the road is wide
    Two cool shorts standin' side by side
    Yeah, my fuel injected Stingray and a 413
    Were revvin' up our engines and it sounds real mean

    Tach it up, tach it up
    Buddy gonna shut you down

    Declinin' numbers at an even rate
    At the count of one we both accelerate
    My Stingray's light the slicks are startin' to spin
    But the 413's really diggen in


    Gotta be cool now power shift here we go

    Superstock Dodge is winding out in low
    But my fuel injected Stingray's really startin' to go
    To get the traction I'm ridin' the clutch
    My pressure plate's burnin' that machine's too much

    Pedal's to the floor hear the dual quads drink
    And now the 413's lead is startin to shrink
    He's hot with ram induction but it's understood
    I got a fuel injected engine sittin' under my hood


    Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down
    Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down
    Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down

    No she has the Commando 361 2 BBL. She has had a burned valve ever since I have had her, but she still runs smooth on 7 cylinders.

    She was a family car. She still has the parking sticker from UCLA that expired in 1966.

    Gear splitting and double overdrive for higher speeds.
    Do you have to smog '71s in your área?

    I second that emotion.

    There are more Chevelle SSs running around than were made.

    Don't you have to have a safety inspection in Texas? If so they are going to tear your car apart with all the aftermarket parts you are going to have on it.

    DON'T REMOVE THE STICKER. It increased value - a lot.

    I think anything over 25 years old is exempt except from the basics like lights, a seatbelt that matched the age of it and a windshield wiper. No tailpipe tests and probably any mods are ok.
