Back in the eighties I was sitting at a light one winter evening in my '56. A cop pulls up behind me, then turns on his lights. He walks to my door and tells me I have no brake lights. I was surprised, I told him I had just cleaned all my connections and knew they worked. He proceeded to the back of the car where he found out how much dimmer they could get when I took my foot off the brake.
Ah, that 6-volt lighting was really something especially at idle with a southwind heater going.

About 8 years ago I was driving my 63 Herbie replica to work one morning on a long flat straightaway and hit 75 mph in a 50 zone. A sheriff's patrol car was sitting back in a little spot and I saw him from the corner of my eye as I went by. I kept on booking it over the next hill and pulled into work. Before I get out of my car he pulls in behind me blocking me in.

I get out as he does and he says, "What in the hell do you have in that thing?" I popped the lid and said, "a little old sewing machine engine." He's walking around the car looking at the interior commenting on how nice it is. Then he said, "You know how fast you were going?" I replied, "Too fast I'm sure." He said,"75 in a 50. That's serious stuff. Do you know Norma Axxxxx?" I said, "Yes, she works for me." He said, "She's my wife. I remember her saying her boss has a Herbie The Love Bug. I called her on my way and told her I just clocked you25 mph over the speed limit in Herbie and she begged me not to give you a ticket. Try to keep in under 60 on that road, would ya?"

And he shook my hand and said "nice car...didn't know they could go that fast." And drove off.

Early 90's when I was in High School, got pulled over in my 64 Notch. Sheriff said car was too low, too loud and too ugly!

Damn, you just described me. He'd give me a ticket for just walking down the street.

Was the early 70's and my first 2 w's were 36hp. Really slow! When the last one died i was able to pick up a 56 oval with a 1300 in it! 50 horses man!! I was close to being late for work one nite (midnite shift) and was about 10 miles away. Was waiting to pull out into a major highway when an older stationwagon is approaching going kinda slow for the posted speed limit. The car was just in that zone where I coulda pulled out in front of him but for some reason I hesitated and let him go by. Pulling out behind him I just couldn't take the 45 mph speed he was doing. So I threw that Ole 56 into 3rd and pulled out to pass him. Being pissed off I honked my horn as I went blazing by! Holy cow, all of a sudden I'm doing what seemed like 60 so I throw her into 4th and kept the roller peddle floored. This 1300 really has some balls, especially compared to the 36Er's I was used to! Now I'm doing 80, but also have these red flashing lites behind me. Damn, just my luck I had to pass an unmarked state trooper car! He issues me a ticket and as he's walking away stops and says "I didn't think that piece of junk could go that fast and I probably would have let you go, but YOU pissed Me off when you honked your horn at me!!!! BTW, I made it to work on time!
