  • Re: I spotted a NEW (insert make/model) today!

    Lets be honest, there really hasn't been a good looking Camry since the 92-96.

    Yeah, I wouldn't dare call an officer's superior. I have to say I guess I've been lucky in the Police area. Anytime I was pulled over I was certainly in the wrong and in almost every case the officer was cool and didn't give me the "full" ticket. The one time the full ticket was written I went to court and in true "Let's Make a Deal" fashion it was reduced to a no-point BS violation that just happened to carry a higher fine.

    I was a defensive driver when I had that '66 Newport, but those days of having a LOT of iron around you are loooong gone. Can't afford to let your attention wander behind the wheel now. You never know who's NOT driving the cars around you.
    The thing is that you are more likely to walk away from an accident in todays cars that from one of those cars from back in the day when you had a lot of iron around you. How the metal around you crumples and dissipates the energy around you is more important than how much metal is around you and how much it weighs.
    Just YouTube some old crash tests and you can easily see how true it is today's cars are safer.

    I could never do that.... Although the guy did have a point.

    We had a few guys that used to stay in dumps and eat cheap, just to look good. It got to be a game for awhile between them. I just stayed at a place I'd pay for myself and eat reasonably. I never once was questioned in over 13 years of pretty heavy travel.

    I'm so happy to be an office guy now. I could never travel with the two little ones at home. As I type this my 9 month old just fell asleep on me!
