Noah's First Ticket

Noah's first speeding ticket.

I just happened to have my new digital camera with me in my '76 Datsun 280Z. I held the camera above the driver's side mirror. I'm looking into both the mirror and camera. The camera points back toward the cop and me. This is how I saw myself looking into the mirror (except for the horizontal mirror flip).

This is my first speeding ticket. I was doing 66 in a 40 zone. I got caught in a speed trap on Highway 1 between San Francisco and Santa Cruz... 20 minutes later I got my second speeding ticket. I was doing 80 in a 65 zone. It was also on Highway 1 and it was also a speed trap. No comment.

My mom gave me the 280Z. I own a '66 VW Beetle now. With less than half the engine size I can manage almost half the speed of my 280Z.
