I guess maybe it could happen in a school zone or a 35mph zone. I just never seem to do much speeding on mine.
There are these radar things set up attached to a speed limit sign that tells you how fast you are going. When I go through on a TW it doesn't register until I am right on top of it.
I wonder if the hand held radar guns are more sensitive. I know I have had radar guns pointed at me but I haven't been stopped yet. Was it because I wasn't going as fast as the speedometer said I was going or is the radar signature of the TW so small I could slow down before the radar gun could pick me up?
You're too skinny Tony. They start going off on me when I'm still a mile away!!!
If you carry a dozen donuts strapped to your gas tank the radar siginal will be absorbed into the donuts and the siginal won't bounce back. Hence your speed won't be registered on the radar gun but after you pass the Cops they will smell the donuts and pull you over for a half dozen.
I had a 48 and I put a fast 235 ci. in it. still slowWatch out you guys. I have a 1952 Chevy pickup that's nearly identical in speed to a TW and once got a ticket for doing 43 in a 30. It was one of those in-town areas posted at 40, but was to undergo "improvements" and now posted at 30. Took off from a stoplight on a Sunday evening at dusk, and within a half mile, he got me doing 43. You ignore the new speed limit because the road was never torn up nor were any workers ever present...the only diff was the sign. Sneaky and unjustified YES, but it can sure happen.
FWIW, I bought a new Corvette in 1994, owned it for 20 years and NEVER got a speeding ticket, despite numerous jaunts over 120. :thumbsup: That old Chevy is the slowest thing I've ever owned.
