Hello all ,let me introduce myself . I am Scoop( real name Tim)
Today I purchased a 2001 GAGT1(least I think it is a GT1)in-so-far as I have learned from this site. All the bells and whistles moonroof, leather ect.

I am wondering if I have the record for the fastest speeding ticket after purchase?
I left the lot turned right ,turned right again and fiddled with the stereo controls on the steering wheel,and on the dash.
Cop jumps out infront of me gives me a ticket 68 in a 50 zone. DOH!
Time of ownership from getting keys to getting ticket 3 minutes.
I pled my case and he laughed,admired the car and asked if it was a 2005,I told him it was a 2001 and he asked where did you find such a clean car? And after me telling him he promptly handed me my 113 dollar ticket.

Here is a picture of her taken today.

Very nice, however you are in a different category (Pre ownership ticket).
Still, a very admirable accomplishment, well done. :-)
