Fuuuu, if its true that vpd has camrys now, my "only speed when no domestics around" rule is wrong.


A few times what's saved my ass is when I'm stuck behind a slowpoke and I'm the only person in the car, and the only faster lane is HOV, is to look @ the license plate of the car infront of you. More than once the car infront of me was a ghost car and I had no idea till I read their plates.

All cop cars' insurance ends feb 11th or 12th (I think).

Anyways ... My school liason officer used to have an ep3 type R as his police car...

undercover and ghost car are the same thing. You will never spot a real "ghost car". Unmarked cars are ones that are on patrol, pulling over your wives and children. I used to work for the VPD in the garage, these little details were very important there, not so much in the real world. pet-peeve I guess

We don't have ep3 type-r's here in canada.
It was a SIR (SI in the states I believe).
