99-04 Mustang GT challenged the Z06

I was headed into town today and a young guy, 18-22 or so, in a Mustang GT was all over himself to get next to me.

He then reved and kept it 2 gears lower than needed and kept punching it. There was traffic and I just wasn't in the mood.

About a mile down the road we ended up with pole positions. He reved and I shook my head no. There really wasn't any point to it so I just didn't want to waste my gas.

The light turned green and this guy takes off full speed. There was a grey extended cab F-150 behind him with a toolbox in the back and a nice sounding dual exhaust that jumped on it when the kid in the Mustang launched.

The F-150 held in there pretty good for about 5 seconds or so then it lit up like a Christmas tree. This plain truck was a cop car. Blew me away. I would have never guessed from the looks of it that it was.

The kid started to run but caught up to traffic real quick and did the smart thing and pulled over.

The cop gave me a thumbs up as I went by. Guess he watched me shake my head no and knew that I didn't race the kid or encourage him.

Shame the Mustang guy got pulled over like that and it gives me something new to ponder with a plain jane F-150 work truck with loud pipes turning out to be a cop.

Yeah they have undercover work trucks around here too, and a ton of those new all black Chargers with the "Johnny Law way too dark" tinted windows.

I just automatically assume if it's a Charger with dark tinted windows that it's a cop.

The pickup still has me a bit flustered.

Wow, imagine if it was something more "interesting" to make a run against. VERY close!

I wonder what the kid was thinking racing a Z06 in a GT??? It was probably a rural services deputy sheriff or a Fish and Wildlife Officer. Some of the FWC guys drive unmarked Ford full sizes. This is why I never race on the street, you never know who is the five-oh anymore. Marion County SO has an unmarked LS1 Z28 traffic car. I about **** my pants when I saw him pull someone over.
