My favorite car: '71 Plymouth Roadrunner, Dennis Schumacher, 49, Seminole

'71 Plymouth Roadrunner

My 1971 Curious Yellow Roadrunner gave me one of my favorite car memories. This picture of my car with two Pinellas County sheriff's cars behind it would lead you to believe that it was going to be a bad day. But, to my surprise, they just wanted to check out my car after hearing me pull out of Lake Seminole Park. I knew I wasn't speeding, but I must admit I may have been showing off a bit when shifting through the gears. It is a 440, 4-speed, after all! The first deputy pulled me over to check it out and called his buddy on the radio to come admire it, too. It was the most fun I've ever had with the cops!

  5. Have your say Tampa Bay on the region's future transit options

    Mass Transit

    TAMPA — It's time, yet again, for Tampa Bay residents to tell officials what kind of transit options they want for their region.
