Most would be the Mustang simply because there are so many more of them (more popular)

I would say mustang Bc every person in American thinks mustang means fast loud. And the color of some mustangs really stand out orange, screaming yellow, bright red, sonic blue, azure blue.

Re: which muscle car attracts the most police attention?

I don't feel as nervous to drive the gf's New Edge as I do the Foxes, and I've only driven a couple of S197 cars around on the street. The newer the car the less I felt the cops were watching me.
But when I'm in a Fox, they eyball the hell out of me, so I'm going to have to go with Mustang on this one.

Cops don't really harass the classics around here. I almost always see ricers with fart cans pulled over. I think it's cause the cops know they are dumb kids driving em. Who else would be so stupid

I've gotten two tickets in my Mustang. One in Louisiana that I didn't deserve and one in Alabama at 3AM going 83 in a 70.

I wish that was true.... instead the idiot driving like a maniac got a tint ticket and I got a speeding ticket. (I wasn't speeding. Unfortunately, Radar doesn't have the id of the car it pegs and I was behind the idiot)

It all depends on the driver, statistics show that suvs get pulled over more than any other vehicle. Imo because the driver is usealy an entitled a** hole. (Not saying if you own an suv you are an a**. ) It doesn't help when your car is bright loud and fast though.

Re: which muscle car attracts the most police attention?

The police here prefer to go after the Honda kids- much easier to find equipment violations than with the Muscle Car crowd. They usually have good cites like illegal tint, modified lighting, pressurized vessels inside the car, (NOS or fire extinguishers) you name it. Plus, there seems to be a much better chance of snagging a stolen Honda with bogus plates than a Mustang..... Just sayin....

I don't know why cops don't pull over more mini vans. Those things are always flying passed me. I think all the owners of mini vans are just pissed that they had children and can't justify buying a mustang so they drive their mini van like one. Or they are just late getting their kids to soccer practice.

It was July 4th and I was picking up my nephew and heading to a car show... I was only going about 10mph over the speed limit and I wasn't nervous so I snapped a shot...

You want to see what happened to me in high school with mom's Torino? I gunned it, hit black ice and skidded into three parked cars, called the police and they flew around the corner, hit the ice and slid into me...

Classmates were watching out the window when it happened, you never heard such a roar of laughter... It screwed up my insurance rates for years...
