motorjock205 Posted May 4, 2008 Report Share Posted May 4, 2008 Wife and I had to drive from Odessa, TX to Lubbock, TX yesterday so she could drop off some film to have slides made for her Art Class at the High School where she teaches. We're driving along, speed limit is 70, I'm cruising about 78 or so, and I pass this Big Honking Ford F350 Diesel truck. All of a sudden, here he comes flying up behind me, and passes me like he's going to a fire...Had to slow down for a rinky dink little town's reduced speed limit, but on the other side of the town, he's balls to the wall again...at this point, he's running about 95 MPH...so I pull up beside him, and he romps on it like he thinks he's gonna out run my Shelby GT. So I drop one gear to 4th, stomp the Shelby and it's Bye Bye, see ya way down the road...The guy was honestly trying to keep up with me! I'm doing about 135 when I let out of the gas, and he decides he's had enough of a butt whippin I guess, because he turned off on a side road...My wife looked at me and said "What was he thinking?" This seems to be a very common occurrence out here in West Texas...There are soooooo many of these LARGE oversized trucks out here that these guys think they can whip anything on the road...I have seen a couple of them that have added the Bully Dog computer upgrade, and YES, they can smoke the rear tires of their Dually and run very well, but they still won't out run a Mustang on a long open road run or in the corners even...Just makes me shake my head in wonder sometimes.... BTW, Why can't I get emoticons to work any more??? I click on the icon above to select one, and I get a big NOTHING! No popup blockers enabled or anything, just NOTHING!
