Back when I was young and very poor, I drove a range of different jalopies. I'm talking a beat up Pinto, a Datsun B610 that had been rolled, a super oxidized late 60's VW bug, etc. During this decade of my life, I was routinely pulled over for having lights out, not coming to complete stops, having a cracked windshield, having a bald tire (that was a real excuse for pulling me over), etc. Most of these incidents didn't end up with a citation after they had looked through my car as much as possible (I did get a few well deserved speeding tickets).

Now that I drive a "nice" car and have gray hair, I never get pulled over.

That's my anecdotal evidence.
