I needed to get ahead of the guy so I let him stop at the light and I rolled in 2nd until the light turned green and I took off to get around him. At the next light I am in front. I take off and have 6 or 7 car spaces between us. The key point here is that i am still under the speed limit at this point. The bull hits it full tilt and is charging up behind me so what do i do. I floor it in 2nd shift into 3rd and am doing 85 before i know it. I take a turn that I know the bull has no chance of making and I shut it down in the following straight. The bull comes flying up and I gun it again and take a sweet turn and watch in the rear view while the driver takes that turn worse than the last one. At this point I am doing about 35 and the bull with its limo tint pulls up beside me with its drivers side window rolled down. I look over and 2 NARC unit cops are flashing badges and yelling at me to slow it down. I waived and said ok and no problem. They blew bye me and flashed some internal blue lights at an integra so they could get in the lane that goes to the local airport. Good thing they were on the way to a drug bust or something and didnt want to fool with my dumb a##.I am not sur if the cop was pissed that I burned him or if he was pissed that I was speeding.

I know. What an idiot I must be.
I know now that I will take it easy around town and will not mess with the Taurus.


I cant tell you how lucky I felt. I have just been in the racing mood since I got the PGT.

Well, that is my stupid racing story.

Oh hell, let me ask how fast your bowels moved when they flashed badges?
But yeah, ya gotta be careful, tauruses are sometimes used as police cars, especially the SHO's, and they are not slow.

don't feel too mad, when I was 17, i was driving an 83 escort (sorriest car i ever had) and the steering was akward, so as i drove down this empty road, i was jerking the wheel and letting the car veer side to side really snappy. next thing i look over and this policeman is waving his finger like "no no no" but he too was going to something more important.

Honestly, i think the policeman in your case was mad at your speeding, cause if the bull was not theirs, they prolly don't care if the taurus is the fastest or not...
