Well this is kind of a good one even though it ended bad.
Last Friday I stayed a little late to finish up a car. I get done and I see a guy that used to work with us so I stopped and said hi. He then showed me he picked up a leftover 10 mustang gt. Looked pretty good. So I busted his balls about not getting the far superior 5.0 but all in good fun. I said I had to run so we both left at the same time.
My work is on a highway and the speed limit is 55. We both caught a red light and he looked at me and says "cops always sit up over the crest." I just nodded my head and waited for the green not expecting anything. Light turns green and he takes off. I proceed to go from the light like normal and when I realized he romped it I did too but unfortunatly I was stuck in lagville. I finally hit boost and started to reel him in. Hit third (maybe 65 or so) and saw a cop so I hit the brakes and he kept on going.
At this point I was pretty positive the cop didn't see me and I wasn't overly speeding for that road to begin with. Since it's a highway it took the cop a while to get out. I see him pull into Uno's and I kept going since my turn was coming up. I looked back and in the far distance I saw the cop turn around with his lights on and knew he got busted.
Talked to his buddy the next day and the cop came up to him claiming he was trying to elude him and gave him a ticket for it. Good news is he never said anything about me or racing so he probably just thought he was flying by me. Bad for him good for me!
The thing that really sucks is he just got that car and the guys were busting his balls telling him he's gotta stop babying it and to "stretch" out those connecting rods." lol. The other thing that sucks is since I didn't realize he was gonna go for it he got a huge jump. I was easily about to pass him but didn't get a chance to so now all the guys as work are riding me pretty hard that a 13 second car smoked me. bahhh. I think I'll be going to the track this week or next week to shut them up.
