Who said: " Anyone knows a 300D 85 is not fast?"
I was doing 80+ in a 70 MPH highway (I20 in West Texas) in my '85 300TD when I came up on a Texas Patrol Car in the slow lane, doing 70. I managed to spot an off ramp which I took right on his heels as he passed it I slid off (braking heavily)
An '85 300D is fast enough to get you a ticket anywhere.
Cops are there to serve, but they rely on an income from tickets, some are under quotas to fill a number of tickets in a given period of time to please HQ or the local city/county that need money (these days who doesn't?)
If you need/want to exceed the speed limits you must keep alert to stay alive, as well as avoid getting caught.
'99 E300D new entry to the fleet, '87 300D Sportline suspension, 71 220 (gasser), '79 300TD w/ 617.952 engine, '83 300D SOLD, '85 300TD R.I.P., '87 300D R.I.P.,
