  1. The last time I got in trouble with the police was in 1971 when I was driving my 71 Dodge Demon 4spd and got into an street race with a 71 Plum crazy Barracuda 6pack 4spd and the local police in this small beach town took great exception to it and chased us both, I didn’t run and got a break from the cop who stopped because I was still in the Marines and he was a Vietnam Vet too. The Cuda ran so I have no idea what happened to him except he was losing when the red and blues came on!!!!
