Ok so when i had my bike 5 cops where chasing me and i didnt know. when i made a turn i saw lights reflecting in the mirror looked back and was like s*** ok. i stopped immediately all 5 of them surrounded me. mind u just lights no sirens. needless to say i explained i didnt know u where back there, which i didnt. they gave me just a careless driving. i took that as a sign and sold the bike. now this past weekend im hauling a** in the z in the burbs slow a** oregon drivers cutting through traffic. finally in my mirro i see 2 cop cars catch up to me so i pull over get the usual bs how fast and such and get another careless driving ticket. so again i am taking this as a sign. i always speed ive had easily over 30 tickets and im 40. pay the tickets whatever i figure what i get caught .1% of the time. so now i am taking this recent careless driving ticket as a sign. so now im trying to sell the Z.
Ahh, I see...definitely a problem with that many tickets, they will be looking for you and even if not actively then they will definitely react to phone-in's from motorists plus as I have also found, we are easy to find in our sexy beasts.
Sad to have to move on to a new vehicle to avoid the extra attention, which will help, but only until the next speed session and a ticket and then you are back on the watch-for list with the new licence number...been there, done that in my early days. Had one cop actually be somewhat cool and not ticket me one day during that period (5-6 speeding tickets in about 2 months), and instead set me up for a missed traffic ticket court date I'd missed, along with that info I just shared as a "warning" about further speeding with my current car at the time. Then about 7 years ago right after moving to Tacoma again I got pulled over for expired tabs, no ticket after explaining I'd JUST moved and therefore missed the mail-in tab form in the mail, but the cop also took the opportunity to share other info regarding how they watch for certain cars (he said no ticket because I wasn't who he thought I might be; but also said they were looking at all white Z32's) and so instead we sat and talked about my Z which he really liked.
Anyhow, sort of fun telling these stories but I feel bad that this will cost you the fun and "fame" of having a Z32.
