I just had a wave of panic since I recently lent my mom, who lives in Nashua, my car. Then I read it was a man. haha

Dont laugh. The 70s were a great time to drive. Cops didnt care about speed.


An unnamed relative of mine was nailed doing 155 in a 55 in CT when he was young. He pulled over.

The cops reaction "why did you stop? Ohh thats a cool car"

That ticket is framed in his house. He got hit with a small fine and nothing else.




Some people just havent grown into the times...

A number of years ago, I did a stint working 3rd shift off 495 in Lowell. The stretch of 495 from the 93 intersection to exit 37 was the test track for my 92 325is. I hit 130 at least once there, but no cops.

I drive that route daily, however at 4:15 it is not a place to be going 130...

Im still looking for a good, flat, straight, cop-less stretch of road in the area to do some pulls and take some logs.

Route 3 going down to the Cape...there are 2 straight aways...both about 1.5-2 miles long...perfect for flat outs...never any cops

Bring it to NED on Street Nights. It sounds like we're planning a meet there. Most likely won't get to 130mph though.

It would probably be a 25mph to 100-110 in 3rd gear. I really might do that.

Not sure if you're referring to the stretch of 495 I mentioned, or the Everette tpk the guy did. But in my case, 3rd shift starts at 11:30pm.
