Today i had a customer come by my shop to pick up some equipment he was renting for an outdoor event for a worthwhile 'non-profit' organization.
He see's my Ram parked by the OH door and says "Nice Truck, Is that Yours?" Proudly I reply "YES!". He proceeds to ask all the usual questions about how I like it, is that a NAV unit, is this one of those trucks with the heated steering....etc. etc. So eventually, without any coaxing whatsoever, I ask if he wants to go for a ride. ZERO HESITATION - YES!!!
Off we go.
Drive out to quiet part of the highway where I can give him a taste of the Hemi acceleration, and there it is.....10-30-50-80-120-160kph, I back off....after all the speed limit was 80kph, and was double that, and very quickly. Man was he impressed! Asked more of the usual questions, what is the top end, how far can you go a tank when giv'n er, etc...etc. Total him I didn't know yet, as I still hadn't actually opened it up yet, whated to take it easy until it was fully broken in. So, back to he shop, grab the stuff he was taking and carry it out the front door for him and put it in the back seat of ....... his unmarked highway interceptor!
If your going to show off your truck.....it's not a bad idea to find out who you are actually talking to. AND not all police officers, wear a traditional uniform!
I did not get ticketed....I avoided bring the subject up...just tried to play it like all was completely normal, but I think he saw the cool calm
look on my face when I realized what the car and he were.
