    doing 113 mph in my '69 Datsun 2000 Roadster.  The highway patrolman was kinda pissed off, cause he had to do a U-turn to come after me, and he had spilled about a quart of coffee all over the inside of his cruiser.

    We talked cars for a while and then he wrote me up.

    When I went to court, the judge asked me why were you going so fast, I said it was the first warm day of spring and I wanted to blow the carbon out of my engine.

    So he asked me what kind of car do you drive, and I said a Datsun 2000.

    I've got a Datsun 240-Z,  he replied, the officer said you were real polite, so I'm going to fine you $5.00 and costs . . .

    Things were a bit different back in the day
