I was a Hispanic young adult in a brand new sport sedan so I expected this kind of treatment, pure ignorance on the cops part, but I remained respectful and laughed about it when I got home.

    As far as laws, when traveling through another state, we sometimes have to obey their laws. I always carry a weapon in my vehicle, but always research the laws of the state before traveling. Some cops know the laws and some cops have massive ego, but as long as we all get to go home safe, no harm done.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Just to be clear here, I know they, the cops, have a tough job, a job they signed up for and whether its back home in the D or especially here in Chicago, they have a tough job, especially with the animals they have to deal with on a day to day basis, trust me I know as I drive all around the city of Chicago and I see the same people hangin' out infront of the same party stores day in and day out and this is during the day time, I can only imagine what goes down at night! But I have had a couple bad experiences and while its not all of them, I always remember these 2 run ins. One was when I was about 19/20 years old, I had a 73' Mustang and my headlight just went out and I was leaving my buddy's house, about 1.5 miles from home and it as about 1:30 a.m, and I get pulled over, I knew why too, ofcoarse. I give them my papers and then the Einstein drops this one on me, "mind if we search your car" and I said "search it for what?". He says to me, straight way "because you look suspicious because you've got long hair and a leather jacket", keep in mind this roughly 1989-90, sounds like something out of "Happy Days" with the Fonze, LOL. So I swing the door open and say "go ahead, you look for those drugs!". I should mention that I didn't smoke or drink but isn't that a beeotch, "you look suspicious because you've got long hair and a leather jacket", good ole' Warren Michigan, the once great city in Michigan, now its a DUMP!

    The 2nd one involved window tint, it was and is illegal in Michigan still, nice way to stimulate the economy there home state! I had a 78' Caprice Classic and I had already been busted for window tint and had it removed, so it was a hot day and while in a turn lane I put it in park, leaned over and rolled down the window. I then see a Warren cop, yeah, that city of Warren again, make a U turn in the middle of Ryan road and then pull me over, ###. I asked the cop what the problem was and he said to me "look A-hole, I saw what you did, rolling the windows down when you saw me!". This is where its fun, he tells me to get out of the car and I show him the windows aren't tinted, so I roll up the p/s window and then the Mensa member says, "well, roll up the other one, yeah, I'm going to remove the tint from just 1 side window....A-hole to the tenth degree AND stupid to boot! Once I did that he apologized to me and gave me his badge number and I said to him "yeah right, like someone is going to believe the long haired guy over the honorable officer" and I just drove away.

    They always cover their own too but everyone knows that, right!

    My buddy always told me his Grandma was Russian.

    I would always ask: What's her hurry? (Yeah, I know.......... stop with the eye rolls).



    On topic, I had the opportunity to give this wonderful lady and her service dog a ride home today after she dropped her truck off at the dealer.

    I guess "service dog" isn't the PC term, but she served in Iraq and that is how she described him.

    I did not initiate any conversation other than niceties, but she elaborated that the dog has helped her cope with PTSD.

    I thought it was cool, and thought the AGO crowd would as well.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?



    Unfortunately, I was the driver of this car today.

    We went all the way upstate to pick up a new Explorer, all the way back, and I was 5 minutes away from the dealership on a 4 lane highway.

    A school bus stopped in the other 2 lanes, and so did everyone else except the 21year old girl behind me. She hit me at a dead stop going 60mph.

    I seem to be ok, all x-rays/scans were negative. But Iím so sore I canít really stand up or walk without extreme pain.

    OMG Paul!

    I'm so sorry to see this, VERY scary but I hope you go back to the doctors very soon and get re-checked out because you know what they say about the next days afterwards!! This is exactly why I always tell my wife to leave room infront of you and/or have an escape plan, it's scary out there with Twitter and all the other BS people are doing besides driving.

    I know you'll keep us updated but take care of YOU, please!!

    Yeah, I'm hip on defensive driving. Unfortunately, I had just come to the stop and didn't even have a split second to check my rearview.

    About 3-4 seconds before, I checked the RV, and no one was within 100 yards of me.

    Dang Paul, that looks intense.
    Hope it doesn't rear its ugly head for you but to be safe you better call Saul.
