He turned several shades of grey as the color left his face. As I saw the cops pull up I exited my vehicle and pointed to the guy as I walked to the neighbors.
Is this another cliffhanger story to keep us on the edge of our chairs?

So how did this episode end? Was he a criminal or just some dumb fool who parked in the wrong driveway without malicious intent?

I almost got caught by the same cop in the same spot today in my Mustang, only I was doing 120 instead of 76 this time. Haha. He really enjoys camping in that spot.

In the civic I don't speed, but in every other car I drive, I'm always 15-30mph over the speed limit when no other drivers are around. When there are other drivers present, or I have a passenger I just keep up with traffic while employing as much Hypermiling tactic as possible.

Forgot to mention, got about 16mpg in my Mustang. Kinda painful to see 1/4 tank of a 20 gallon tank go in 70 miles. In my civic 70 miles is about 1/8 Of a 12 gallon tank haha, sometimes less.

Well the Mamba is pissing me off because of the L/B problem and the sluggishness of it even after the EGR cleaning. I'm driving the Mamba right now because I don't have money to gas the Mustang and I wanna fix the oil leak before I start driving it everywhere.
