I got #16, although I wasnt let off just reduced to 10 over. WE was tearin around in my old Galaxie Wagon, doin about 120 when I got stopped. Cop didnt beleive it was a 2 barrel 302 (hwy gears are great) so he had to see under the hood. Knocked it down to 55 in a 45. Thank god.

That was the first day I got my license back....

Those that say it cant be done should say so quietly, so as not to disturb those who are doing it.
