It is generally considered a BAD idea to do a huge 2 gear, sideways burnout with a sherriff deputy coming toward you, less than 600 ft. away. They tend to frown on that kinda of behavior. Once again Scott Long was there to witness the event. When we saw him flip around, we beat it down a dead end side street (the only place avail.) & waited for a while. The cop went past the corner w/disco lights in high gear. A few minutes later we came back out of the dead end road, & ~~~ here came the same cop back down the road. He was heading back to my house, where all the SC Guys were parked in my front yard. Well, he flips around (again!) & pulls me over. I thought I was going to jail, when he asked me to get out of the car. I left the keys in it, so Scott could take it back to my place. Cop said that he didn't appreciate the way I pulled on to the road. Then he asked me what that was all about. I told him that all those cars in my front yard were my car club. Told him that I'd just had a lot of work done to the car, & the guys wanted to see what it'd do. Told him it was stupid & wrong, but I did it anyway. Then he asked why I had gone down the dead end road. I told him we were turning around to go back to my house. Then he asked why I hadn't turned in the direction of my house when I saw him coming. I told him, we saw you coming & figured that we didn't want to go the same way he was. Well, the cop says, that I had told him the truth & he doesn't hear that very often. THEN HE LET ME GO, saying that he didn't want to see any more of that kind of driving. I said, "Thank You Sir, I'll take it easy", & we drove off in different directions.

When we got back to my place, all the SC Guys were surprized that I wasn't in jail, & even more surprized that the cop let me go. I said more than one, "Thank You LORD"!!! on the short drive home.
