add the focus to the list, mine seems to attract cops like flys. or the lack of a tail pipe, one of the two.

The holden commodore in Australia (Chev Lumina, Pontiac G8) are very big cop magnets.

Although seeing somebody pulled over is relatively rare around here, most of the cars I see being ticketed are minivans and pontiac's.

I have also noticed that my jeep flies under the radar extremely well.
I guess soccer mom status is a relatively good benefit to a younger driver as I haven't been bothered much yet, while my friends seem to have lots of problems in other vehicles.

It's usually the speedometer, not the type of car, that attracts cops to me.

But I love how many Buicks are on the list - 'cause they're all driven by elderly people. lol

Probably because people who have them are out trying to prove to themselves that they don't suck. lol
