Re: escort 8500 blue ordered (chewyjr15)

I'm a big fan of Escort products...I used one religiously throughout high school and college. I now only use my Solo when driving long distances.<p>Good choice...

IMO the Escort has better detection but doesn't give the arrows like thte V1 so that's it only drawback. The best place is as high up on the windhsield as you can get it

here we go again, I have cop friends that like to screw with me.....if I was a habitual speeder I would have a V1 up there. Just because I like to know when my speed is being monitored doesnt mean I speed. <p>The reason I told him to stop speeding is because he is on the verge of <b>LOSING</b> his license

Actually, that is how you spell it. I mean I can't agree with YOUNG(emphasis) chewy's driving habits (but i was once young and dumb) or his horrendous ESL style of typing, but i would figure a EMS or Cop or whatever you are would be able to figure out how to spell the word safety. And would be out blazing around with his friends that like to mess with him, but doesnt speed (BS),rather than to blast this kid around about his typing. Ok i will stop now that i spent more than 5 minutes ensuring i wouldnt make a spelling or grammatical error. See if I made one if you care to waste you time. Now back to your regularly scheduled thread

We all make spelling/grammatical errors. It is just annoying to see it time after time. I.E. -ZZrguy<p>I speed, everyone does at one point or another, but I am not a habitual speeder. I told the guy to slow down because he is about to lose his driving privileges in his state, which is cause for concern. Rather than him spending money on a radar detector, he could take a driving course maybe.<p><br>BTW: Thats a tight s40 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
