A Viggen Tale - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Zipping home from the airport last night in rural Massachusetts on a state highway (65 MPH) at about 110 MPH, when the radar detector went nuts. It was nearly 2 AM, and I was startled to even think that a cop would be out on an empty highway. Nonetheless, I stomped on the brakes as I breached the crest of a small hill and spotted my new buddy. His lights flipped on, and for a fleeting second I considered just flooring it, but decided I'm not the type to fare well in jail.
As the over-sized, shaved-headed officer sauntered to the car, I calculated insurance costs and pondered my fate. However, to my amazement, he reached the window with a smile, and told me that he clocked me at 77 in a 65 but wouldn't give me a ticket. He then proceeded to ask me all about my screaming yellow Viggen, and it turns out he's an Audi A4 driver looking for an upgrade. After a nice 10 minute chat, he told me to slow down with a chuckle and sent me on my way.
I thanked him and nailed it (for his amusement), as I zipped off into the night. Damn, I love my new car.
