I have also seen some VERY loud 60's-70's muscle cars...some *VERY* loud Cudas and what not. My neighbor's 68 Firebird is not much quieter then a Top Fuel dragster, lol. I feel most policeman won't ticket them because they probably grew up in this era and actually enjoy driving, seeing, and hearing these cars.

Same goes for Harley motorcycles, chances are this is seen as an acceptable form of noise as it's part of the American Culture. Again, I could be way off but this is how I look at it. I'm sure it depends on the police officer him/herself, but I am sure the majority don't mind these motorcycles or 500ci monsters.

My friend has an E36 M3 and was speeding (over 100mph) on his way to a track (pretty sure it was Buttonwillow). He was pulled over and spent 10 minutes just talking to the officer about M3s. Turns out the cop "loves" M3s. Now imagine if it was a car he didn't like or maybe even had an intense dislike for? I bet it would have resulted in a huge fine or possible license suspension/car impound (depending on what the law states exactly).
