    I met an Indiana State Trooper at a gun store a few years back. He was driving a new Charger, it was white with the Indiana State Police stickers on the doors. It did not have lights on top. The car was BEAUTIFUL~!!!
    I told him that I had a 1970 Challenger and that it would be cool to have pictures of his Charger and my Challenger. Next thing you know, he's in my drive way and we're taking pictures.

    Jump forward 2 years.......
    We got together tonight and he piloted the Hellcat. I wish you could have seen the smile on his face. He is in love! He could not believe the ease of acceleration, the Troopers have strong Chargers, but this made them seem slow. Half the fun of owning the Hellcat is seeing the excitement and joy of other people going hammer down in the BEAST................................... I LOVE THAT CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Didn't think cop cars had anymore power than stock

    I thought the Cop cars had little extra under the hood......Maybe I'm wrong. My Wife says I'm always wrong.

    My fun cars have been much faster than cop cars for some time. If only they would stay off the radio, we could get a fair fight! :)

    I say they get rid of all radar and that will make it fair. I stopped counting speeding tickets years, no, damn, decades ago! I always have a ticket or two on my record. Sometimes that speedometer gets fuzzy when no body is around and the conditions permit.

    I have received more than a dozen tickets over the years. None have ever made it to my record. Florida courts are awesome!
