Grew up on dirt bikes, switched to road racing and still own bikes. Big trucks? Yep. Currently own a lifted 03' Ram QC 4x4. Quads, jet skiis, you name it and I've been into it at some point in my life.

    But the real deal for me is my cars. I am not into imports or sports cars. I am partial to Mustangs and have owned 15. Currently down to 2. My blown 96' Cobra and my 87' LX coupe. The 87' is my 1/4 mile car. Stroked 351W (377) Forged, nitrous spec pistons, cam etc. I am old school so it is a carb'd, dual plate nitrous set-up.

    Hell, I built (am building) my home around my Garage, just so I could get a shop and a lift in it.

    I would love to have a house with a garage big enough to have a lift and a fully equipped shop.

    As gay as it makes me sound, I'm scared to death of bikes, not so much because they themselves are scary, but because I know I would rip in to it one day and scatter my body along the road, not to mention people up here in Philly can't drive and I don't trust being on the road with them without a metal cage protecting me.

          That’s not really fair. He (or she) is still living at home because in Silicon Valley housing is unattainable for anyone not making high 6 or mid 7 figure salaries.

          Everyone lives "at home". What I said, was that I suspect he is still living with his parents.

          Wow, I am truly impressed by all the assumptions. ( You guys have all the correct answers.) I do still live with my parents in South Bay, and I turned 21 not long ago. Police work is totally different than what I was expecting.

          There were SJPD officers who were living in their RVs, and I feel lucky to not have to worry about finding a place to live in Silicon Valley.

        Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

          I was at a gun store today, ordering my retirement gun. A young guy and his girlfriend were walking out to his car. His car appeared to be what had been a perfectly good BMW, until he removed the springs and muffler from it. As they walked past my custom-ordered Porsche convertible, parked with the top down, she stared at it long and hard. She was clearly considering her life decisions, as well as the results of those decisions. Then she turned to face him, with a look on her face like she was going to slap him.

            The laws in your state require you to have a front license plate on your car. As a probationary rookie, you should be demonstrating compliance with the laws that you are sworn to enforce.

              True, but I got 99 FTO problems, and that aint one. Plus, I drive a my ford f150 to work, so no one would really find out that I don't have a front plate on my M3. Like what you said, I should be showing compliance with the state law.

              My CHP buddy drives a mustang GT ( straight piped exhaust , tinted windows) , and I personally don’t like the Cali liberals’ laws.

            Every single license plate used in the state of California is manufactured at Folsom Prison, it takes a somewhat longer to produce personal plates, particularly plates with 10 codes or badge numbers.

              This is why I don't have a convertible.

                ^^ That... and the human feces problem...and the horny tarantulas...

            • Since this thread was brought back up from the dead I'll play.

              To and from work I drive a 2002 Dodge Neon ACR. It's a nice little beater and never grabs the attention of anyone and I don't care if something happens to it.

              On my off days I have a Mercedes E class sedan and a Corvette.

                    Sorry, I failed to add the timeline of ownership:
                    #1 - 1976 to 1978;
                    #2 - 1978 to 1979;
                    #3 - 1979 to 1981;
                    #4 - 1978 to 1981;
                    #5 - 1981 to 1984;
                    #6 - 1984 to 1994;
                    #7 - 1985 to 1986;
                    In between, we had 2 old cars gifted to us by my wife's parents, plus a 3rd old vehicle gifted to us by one of my wife's sisters & husbands, all which our kids eventually drove;
                    #8 - 2002 to 2013;
                    #9 - 2011 to present;
                    #10 - 2013 to present.

                  What year and model? I like the AMG E63S wagon. A station wagon with over 600 horsepower, looks like more fun than giving two toys to three kids. And that matte-grey paint looks great on it.

                  I can't justify the expense of the E63S wagon- I wish that Mercedes AMG would bring the C63S wagon to the U.S..

                    We actually have a trainee who didn’t have a front plate on his Jeep for a few weeks. His FTO wouldn’t let him stop any car with no front plate.

                      When I worked as a local that was the department's rule. If your vehicle had a particular equipment violation then you couldn't stop drivers for the same issue. Window tint and front plate were the two big ones.
