Way back in yesteryear, it was a great sport to "have some fun with the chasers". But back then there was
very little traffic @ about 2ish A.M.
When the Chippies (California Highway Patrol) got those "red hot K cars" the real fun began! The family
sedans coming in from Vegas would accidentally outrun them.
The Barstow to Vegas runs suddenly slowed to a stop with the introduction of the revered Ford Mustang SSP about 1983ish!
Some of those would do the 140 on the speedo and with the airplanes they would run, one could almost never outrun the black and whites.
Anyway I went a different direction and got out unscathed but, had a lot of adrenaline rushes.
