    You can't beat the radio, and even if you can beat the radio, you won't beat the RADAR!

    I dunno, I'd think by the time he got all that packed back in the car and began pursuit you could be long gone!

    Like down under, saving lives and raising revenue. They now even have point to point on the highways as well as mobile roadside vans that just up where you lest expect them. No old static setups or speed guns.:rolleyes:
     
  9. I remember that one and "There's never been a motor faster than Motorola". Now "OnStar" can just shut the electronics off remotely if the right organization tells them to.

    If you wrap your car in aluminum foil, it won't show up on radar. Try it and PLEASE, post pics.

    This has a special meaning to me because in the 60s my brother and friends ,went to town in a 57 Chevy. They were racing someone ,when the cops started chasing them they ran. Well the call went out and a chp tboned my brother and friends .Sent them into a walnut tree and fence. That car looked like a vw, damn near killed them all. My brother said" I thought I had you beat. Cop replied "can't beat a radio" True story > Jack

    Ya, but if you pass them deep enough into the 130s or so, they don't bother to chase you out here in the desert... Ya gotta trust me on that one.

    Those were a pain in the butt. The "Graph" had an arm that moved and was fed from an inkwell that one had to fill manually by pouring the ink into a small opening. Many a seat cover ruined by spilled ink.

    Thanks for the MEMORIES, I operated one of those same units for 2 years. The worst part was having to run out over 1000 feet of cable to the tripod that mounted the radar box. Then back to the vehicle only to have some smart ass kids unplug the cable from the radar box !!!!!!!!!!! The COPS to-day have it made.

    No, Fred, that doesn't work. You have to put aluminum foil balls inside your hub caps. :p

    Look at the size of those cables. That mess drew some juice!
     
  29. I wonder how often they ran the battery down with that vacuum tube equipment?
