    "So I was really drunk and......"

    NO NO NO NO! Nothing like that. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif


    Me and the wife were out driving and enjoying the beautiful weather yesterday, not too hot...not too cold. We took a drive with the K5 up into the hills over San Jose, and did the slow cruise that takes you from Old Calaveras Rd over to Sierra Rd, down by Berryessa.

    Well we come down from the hill and at the first intersection we stop at there is a cop stopped on a red light, heading in a different direction. We cruise through on the 'green' nice and slow, and about 30 seconds later, I notice that the cop is behind us with his lights on! DAMN! /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    I know I didn't do anything wrong, so I know it's gotta be about the tires, or the lift or some other "fix-it" ticket. I watch in the mirror as this really young-looking cop get out of the car and comes up to the truck. First words out of his mouth were:

    "That's a big-ass truck truck you got there!"

    Pretty much the 2nd thing he said was:

    "Just so you know, I'm not going to give you a ticket or anything...."

    OK, so I relax a little and realize he's probably not going to try to work me over for tickets. He was asking me what size tires, and how much lift, and what kind of engine, etc. It was kind of fun, because I could tell he was just having a boring day, and wanted to talk trucks with someone. Eventually, he mentioned that I needed to have mudflaps, which I guess was the "actual" reason he pulled me over....but he was funny, because he the way he said it was kind of "at some point, you really should try to get some on this truck".....no pressure at all. He tells me that he wants to get an old truck too, and was thinking about a Blazer.....Guess I know now why he pulled me over! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Kinda funny. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I don't know if you read it in the Non4x4 forum about the local cop here that lost his legs a few weeks ago to a drunk driver. Heard the other night that for the next month, the town was going to have 30 cops on checkpoints (this dept. doesn't have that many cops, has to go borrow them). Last night I found out just how serious they are about this. I was coming home from yet another "Blazergfest Payback" mission and at this 4-way 2 miles outside of the town, one of their cops was setting up in the dark.

    Better you than me getting pulled over i guess.
    Did ya catch his name?
    I'm amazed how many cops i can just drive right by in my K/5. I haven't been pulled over in a couple years in the truck.
    Even in the car, i've pulled right up next to cops and just smiled and nodded.

    Dude, I live in Fremont and Rossetti is the biggest dickhead on the force, none of his co-workers even like him but the reason he is still on the force is because he brings alot of revenue to the city of Fremont. I have inside knowledge of this. I have a couple friends who are Fremont P/D cops and they tell the stories about him.

    If they are below the headlights, tell him to go get bent, nicely though.

    Wonder if Fremont PD is a "progressive" agency? If so and an officer has an "attitude" problem, they tend to get the lovely shifts/time on the beach.

    You may meet him sooner than that.....

    He called me on the phone last night, and is looking at a '72 Blazer down in LA. (Another 1st Gen guy? /forums/images/icons/cool.gif )

    I invited him to stop over on Friday to say "Hello" to the gang at the BBQ. He has to work, but said he'll try to swing over for a few minutes at least....

    Seems like he's pretty serious about owning a Blazer, so I suspect he'll be a "regular" here before too much longer. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif


    Small world.
