 Dick was busted for 'Speeding' during the Stampede by a Motorcycle Cop. Our own Deputy Dave (See the badge?) waited until the opportune moment during the show to 'capture' his fugitive.

How can you speed during the Stampede where everyone is doing 55-60 MPH?... Yup, Dick found a way!

HONEST OFFICER---I was just trying to catch up.
 
For those that don't know the story, I was behind Cookieboy
who was following Joe in 3 lanes of OPEN highway.
Cookieboy went left to overtake Joe, when I got the dumb
idea to go right & pass Joe, when I got by him I thought well
I'll go hammer down & pull away. All was well until one of
W Va's Finest took my passing speed--83.762, and the rest
is history.  I would like to state that the motorcycle Officer
was  an understanding  gentleman, when presented with
facts of what we THE PINTO STAMPEDE were doing & what I
did was for documentation, he graciously let the speed pass.
I don't know if he was a veteran or not, but being honest with
him had a big effect on the outcome. To him I give my respect
for a job humanly well done Thank you SIR!!
 
 
                 I would do it again.    Dick       83mph Postalpony
1980 Hatchback was a "Postal Unit" on the
west coast in it's early life. Now residing
in Ohio, But we don't haul the U.S. Mail anymore;
 Now all we do is HAUL!
 5th gear 4700 rpm & still pullin'= 113+  mph
 
 UPDATE-83.762 mph in 4th gear As verified by a W Va State Trooper-WITH 1 GEAR TO GO 6-2-11

I saw the cop, I heard Dick coming up fast, should have seen me trying to finish passing Joe, get back in line and grab the vid-cam in time to catch that, how lucky I was he pulled back in line right in front of me.
keep on hauling  ;D

Whaddya expect... Dick was the Pony Express! lol

I really wondered if it would be me getting the pull-over, as I had my hot pink camera out taking pictures on the fly in plain sight of him and his radar. lol Dick got his 15 minutes of infamy. lol Love you guys.  ;D

One can never have too many Pintos!

Dang that's funny, good thing he let you go, that would have been a large fine :lol:
I got stopped last week, first thing out of his mouth " that thing got a 289 in it?" Uh no officer it's just a little 2-ltr with a 5 speed. " Oh gee sir I guess my speedo must be off due to the 5 speed install (yeah I know BS). " Well I'll be back just relax". He wrote me up for 65+ in a 55 zone Then he said " I have a soft spot in my heart for Pinto's..grew up with one...slow it down ok"  Uh yes sir thank you sir... :fastcar:
