First official kill


Recommended Posts

I was driving to go out to eat last night and a hyundai with exhaust of course revved up and i just kind of laughed and let him go. Then about 2 mins later i look in my side mirror and notice a black camaro ss coming up in the lane next to me. It was prob like a 99 or 2000 because it didn't have the headlights that sit deep in the front fascia but the headlights more just like any other car. He pulled up next to me and i looked over and he waived and as soon as his hand went back down he downshifted. As soon as i heard it down shift i switched to the other lane to my right since it was a four lane interstate each way. I was doing about 70 and downshifted to 3rd and i hit it, when i looked in my mirror i was doing about 115 and he was prob 7 or 8 lengths behind me. I think he saw he didn't have a chance and saved his self the embarrassment. That's my first kill of anything respectable (civics, tiburons, integras, etc. don't count). Damn this thing is fast!

Beautiful car. But, as to the street racing, we are all better served by shying away from it. You did it as safely as one can (moving over a lane) but it still comes down to trusting that the other driver knows what he or she is doing. All the data I have collected (informal and from the 60's I confess) is that, most times, the other driver is not all that skilled in the racing department. I close as I opened: Beautiful car. Jim

Just check out my avatar!

 

Not condoning street racing; but you gotta love your first kill! I took a new vette (still had the temp in the rear window) just last week. We were pretty even off the line; but when I hit second, it felt like I was shot out of a cannon. By third I had 4-5 car lengths on him. We both backed off and acted our age again. He pulled along side and gave me a thumbs up. I think the temp will be replaced with a For Sale sign soon!

  • BMW M3 -- this guy was pissed he lost so bad with girl friend next door
  • GTO (New) -- more to satisfy my curiousity because of all the big engine press. NOT!
  • Corvette - Corvette - Corvette -- Because I can't stand them. No winners to date. Waitin on the 605 hp.
  • Suburu WSX Turbo -- Shut the young man down.
  • Camaro -- Came along way, out of his way only to lose miserably.
  • Older SVT Cobra -- Obnioxous youth needed a road whipping
  • Mercedes (Sports model) -- Rich guy thought he had something. HA, HA, HA.
  • Ninja Motorcycle -- Got him at the hole shot. Low skills out done by years of drivin.
  • Pontiac Solice (new) -- Bored
  • and the rest of the pesty little Fast Furious jokesters aren't worth the gas spent...

 

 

My game, shoot'em down in a short blast of "WHAT WAS THAT!!!" power.

 

Just enough to show the curious...don't even think about it.

 

Love this car...and now that I have it out of my system, it's total cruisin' and all the good tunes I can handle.
