I can't say whether your car was insulted, but years ago mine was!  I 
lew through a radar trap in my '68 Monza, and when the trooper stopped 
e he said, in compete seriousness, "I thought you were trying to run -- 
ut in a Corvair?"

 Last weekend we drove out 66 Monza with a 110/PG and AC to the TriState 
orvair meet in Cripple Creek, CO (had a great time!!) The route we took was via 
S highways through some very rural parts of western Kansas and Eastern 
olorado. This route takes us through many small towns with reduced speed 
imits. One such town was Granada, CO which has a speed limit of 35 MPH though 
own. I slowed down but can say for sure that I was actually doing 35 or less as 
 was soaking in the ambiance of the town (we hadn't seen much of anything for 
uite some time). And that's what I told the officer when he pulled us over. He 
aid, "the radar show you doing 45 in the 35 zone, but it didn't look like you 
ere going that fast." He only wrote me a warning, so I was initially very 
rateful. However after thinking about what he said, I felt that he had insulted 
ur little Corvair.
