Yesterday,

When driving the 66' back (525 miles) from Pensacola show to Houston on I-10 we had a Louisiana State trooper pull up next to us and instead of waving us over he motioned for us to follow him.

We did, at speeds up to 110mph!, for about 5 miles until he exited the Interstate and gave the "hi sign". We slowed down then since we didn't have our escort!

Neat huh!

Probably just wanted to make sure you had the oats that it looks like from the outside. Some cops are pretty darn cool! A good freind of mine is a state trooper and if the road is clear he races me everytime he sees me in my tbird. The trouble with that is I can't tell if it's him 'till I actually see him in the car. I SHURE don't wan't to fly by some other cop...............*G*

I wonder if I could find a 5.0 State Trooper replica so the wife can escort me?

Bishir,

The guy I was telling you about at the show was in a pickup truck and had a police uniform on. He did lead us at a high rate for a few miles too!

This was a clearly marked Louisiana State Trooper vehicle!

Very cool.

Why is it that cops and Shelby owners get to have all the fun??
