    Stage 2 wagon vs Porsche Carrera 4

    I was going down the highway crusin in 5th in the right lane, and a guy in a Porsche Carrera 4 kept romping on it past me then slowing down then doing it again in so on. Then i signaled right to merge onto a different highway (rt 78 N for people who live in PA) and he kept doing it, so the next time he gunned it i dropped it into third and took off behind him, i was about 1 car length behind then about 2 when i shifted into 4th and kept it pretty steady. then backed off. I just thought it was pretty funny a wagon stalking a Porsche. Im not saying my car is faster then it but i kept up.

    In MD, it would have been a cop and he would have pulled you over for street racing. It's crazy what they use there for unmarked cars and how they instigate other drivers to go. I've seen hondas, porsches, mustangs, minivans, and even a yellow Lambo. They rev at other sports cars and see if they bite. Thankfully, PA doesn't pull this.

    Good run though!

    I ran against a 996 C4 a couple of years ago. When it was over, its driver looked absolutely astonished. I don't think he'd come across an Evo IX before.

    Really? So that is what MD is doing with all the income taxes I pay. Wouldn't want it going to real crime fighting, now would we?

    The cars are normally innocent bystanders when the police bust up a Crime/Drug ring. They aren't buying these cars off the showroom floor.

    They could sell the cars and reduce tax burden...but that just makes too much sense.

    Hey just think if the Police departments didnt use these impounded vehicles and turning them into Real Police vehicles we wouldnt have FHP Officers trying to catch Porsches and Hyabusas racing on the HighWay with thier decked out Z28 Camaro trying to push 140mph, losing control and rapping around a tree.

    Seriously I am not against Police or any LE Officer (in fact Im attending Police Academy in January) but there really are some retarded officers that should not be behind the wheel of performance vehicles. Trying to chase a Hyabusa that already went by you at 150+mph...... You honestly dont have a chance and should have left it at that and radio ahead for assistance. I have seen a few of these BAIT cars here in Central Florida.
    Winter Park has a Red Cobra Mustang with Black racing stripes, with all its lights hidden behind tinted windows and mesh grill. Very Very Sneaky! Our taxes at work...YAY!

    I think most seized cars go to Auction.
    How To Buy Police Seized Car?

    In California and Ontario (I think, somewhere in Canada, can't remember) they sometimes smash cars seized for street racing.

    I wired and installed 4 corner strobes / 800 Mhz Motorola / 3 inch antenna / Deck lights / wig-wag / Siren / lightbar / all stuffed into a Havis console in a Chevy Impala ... Sad choice of car.
