    Hahahaha! People were giving the homeless free flu shots. The lady told the guy she was going to poke him on 3. On the count of 1, she pokes him!

    Bought some wheels over the weekend and they need the fronts replaced. Rears are Federals, fronts are Conti knockoffs. Tried to get the fronts in Federals locally, but only 1 available. Amazon to the rescue! $109 shipped for 245/35/20 595 Evos. lol

    I was told my size is mostly for BMW and Audi. Not so cheap either...especially for the speed rating...LOL

    At least they're cheaper than my Camaro tires, they were $300 each and special order only!!!

    Your special order tires are for the Crown Vic? Didn't know you still had a Camaro

    Got an email from Amazon a little while ago. One tire shipped and is due in Monday. WTF am I going to do with one tire! lol

    Nah...sold the SS when it expired...didn't want it to just sit and rot. I gave the Crown Vic to my friend because his kids outgrew my old Mustang. The tires are for my SHO...

    Not as much room as a Crown Vic but way faster...the AWD makes it really stable.

    Yeah I drove one of the new blue and whites and I was like Hmmmmmm not bad. Even the n/a V6 had lots of get up and go...little over 300 hp and AWD. But the mpg sucks.

    The twin turbos bring up the mpgs a lot...

    Oh my goodness....I just had an "Affluenza" complaint!

    I cited these high schoolers for being in a park after hours...one of the kid's mommy writes a complaint letter to the Mayor grumbling that her honor student son shouldn't have been cited...now he has to take off from school to go to court...that's basically it.

    So in other words, her son is too affluent to be bound by common laws that apply to plain commoners and not to him...

    I just ask myself...hmmmm honor student huh but he still can't read a very large sign posting "CLOSED TO PUBLIC 8 PM TO 4 AM"

    Saw a sweet red early 90's Mitsubishi 3000GT in rush hour. It also had the original plates for the year (Gxx-###) which gave the car more prestige (not recently imported or had multiple owners.)

    Had fun last night...laser'd a Corvette at 136 mph on the via duct...

    The big question is, were you able to pull him over?

    Either Wed or Thu night at 11pm, I was on Kal Hwy heading into town when a grey BMW was hauling ass. I was doing 40 and it was as if I was standing still. Maybe 70 mph? There was a blue and white behind , but it was like he didn't see it. When he takes notice, the BMW is about 1/2 mile away. Don't think he caught the guy.

    Oh yeah I caught him...worse his DANC for his last excessive speeding just expired in December...and he had another excessive speeding in 2016...so this one makes it his 3rd.

    136 mph, and you had time to start up, and catch him! Damn! He's traveling at 200fps. You laser him at 1200 ft? Hit the strobes and he pulls over and goes, Shit!

    Nah, always keep the engine running! I was standing at the rear of my car shooting when I shot him at 450'...jumped in my car and chased him down...it's not that bad...lots of road to keep him in sight and catch up to him.

    450'! That's 2 seconds to get in your car and go. Must be muscle memory. lol
