Thread: Ooops, I think I upset him.....

    Default Ooops, I think I upset him.....

    60 mph off the roundabout, tight round the corner accelerating hard, found the corner apex brilliantly.... now full power for the straight....



    ....... right past a Volvo POLICE car... sat stationary on the inside...

    Oh well... I'm not speeding (yet) so I let him have the twin pipes on full chat as I blast past and then slooooooow back to 70mph and stuck cruise control on as I joined the motorway....



    ..............


    Sure enough 5 mins later.... he comes creeping up behind me.... but its all cool at 70 mph.... cruises past having a gooooood loooooooong look at the car..... I resist the urge to smile back..... and off he goes

    see, the problem with starring out your number plate is that it could be any old 4 letter word beginning with 's'....

    But good on ya for playing with a traffic car!

    Wouldn't know..... the only time I've been anywhere near you when 'making progress' was down the slip road from Keele services, and I was too busy trying to keep up to listen for your exhaust note!

    Do you know what....

    I reckon the VXRD is one of the fastest Vectra-C facelifts in the country from 60-0 mph right now !!

    When Keith was driving tonight, I kid you not, he stopped the car so quickly he stalled it cos he didnt press the clutch pedal in quick enough !!

    Its outrageous !!

    We were doing 80mph to 10 mph over and over and over between two roundabouts and no brake fade at all... and no loss of pedal feel....

    Its brill ! totally in tune with the suspension as well. Perfect !

    80 posted on a forum, you might as well say to the next you see Steve, and then all you will be able to say is to the officer, he'll look at your andat his mate as he has a word in yourwhile you look and he explains how many's he's attended over the yrs.

    In all seriousness though Steve one little mistake or a person wandering across what I think is a dual carriageway, and it's gonna be one of those times you need a time machine for.

    Save a life...don't kill anyone.
