The last time I was stopped, I got a warning.
The Healey club was going to the UP to meet the Around The World Rally.
Since my Healey is not trustworthy, I took the C. The leader of the Caravan
wasn't experience, particularly on expressways. Going up I was the last car
and had to hit 95 to keep up. That was minor to following the Rally car
through the back woods of the UP on beat up two lane roads, in a pouring
rain, at 75.
In the way back it was only the leader and myself, and I lost him on the
Illinois Tollway, and was going 80 to try to catch up. We had gotten away
with speeding going, but I got stopped on the way back.
When I saw the Police car I wondered how much it would cost to be 25 MPH
over the speed limit. He only accused me of changing lanes without signaling
and didn't mention speeding at all! All I got was a warning about changing
He did ask me where I was coming from, and I launched into the war story
about the rally, leaving out the speeding. He cut me off, and later I
realized he wanted to be sure I was using my antique plates for car related
Show some respect, and it goes a long way. I was an MP in the army, and
Gilbert and Sullivan had it right.
