Jack Wagons (pun intended) like that are going to be the end of Cars and Coffee. Maybe not the end, but at least a major damper. Now the police are telling people not to watch all of the cars roll out? I can't blame them, with fools like that making it dangerous for onlookers. Just a couple of months ago, I was standing ten feet away when that Vette jumped over the curb right where people were allowed to stand months earlier.
I'm not going to pretend that I don't break the law by speeding or taking turns too fast, but I don't crap all over an event like this, where I know the police are keeping a close watch. I'd like to continue coming to this event, but if the police put pressure on the ownership Classic BMW, they might have to drop it. That would suck.
Okay, I'm being a hypocrite, or at least a goody two shoes (whatever that means...), but I like cars and coffee and don't want to see it taken away from me!
Someone hand me a ladder, I need to get off this high horse...
