My neighbor and I were coming home from a drive the other day. (He also has a 1949 Austin gasser) We came around the corner rright by our houses and there was a city police officer. She did a double take, and a U turn in the intersection. Of course I naturally figured we were going to get harased for something. Instead the female officer gets out and walks up with a smile, and says, "I've never seen any cars like those in my life!"
She spent a few minutes asking questions and looking them over. I asked if she wanted to go for a ride, but she said she couldn't while on duty. She might come back later when she's off duty; which would be cool! Cops need to have some car fun too!
