Saving little old Ladies, and smoking thugs.
Eating my chocolate chip cookie at band practice'* break, I hear a cellphone ring. My Guitarist Mike picks up the phone.
"Hey Brian whats up?" He said. "No sorry I can't do anything tonight. I'm double booked."
"Give me the phone mike" I said "I wanna talk to him"
Mike Hands me the phone.
Brian says "Do you wanna do something tonight? I know this great swimming hole up in the mountain springs."
"Sure," I said "We can go hunting later that night."
So that started the night of the bonneville.
We head up the mountain springs relaxing then head back into town at dusk. The air is cooling down and my engine feels the dense sweetness. Brian riding shotgun. We head down to the local strip and start cruisin. We come to a stop light and a teenage couple are sitting in a early 90'* maxima. The girl driving the maxima starts off hard from the light slightly. But then backs off, I come up real quick and pace her. I look over and she yells "Hey man!" I smile and shot up a car length in an instant. They try to come back up, but again I shoot a car length ahead. We travel through the strip following into another town and we turn around.
The cars warmed up and is puring, im feeling a good night and so is Brian. We go back down the way we came just cruising. I come up to a stop light, and as I scan the situation I see a small car coming up beside me. As his headlights dim while he is passing I see what the car is. A Honda Type Rice.
Now this car was serious rice. All the essentials. A body kit painted the wrong color, white painted window whipers, tinted window, Huge *** fin, fart can, big wheels, and stickers galore. I look over and see a "Nos" Sticker then i look back at the light. Then quickly over to see who is in shotgun in his car, a hot chick! "Man this is perfect!" I said to my friend. I see a thug sitting behind the wheel. Chair all the way back and hand on top of the steering wheel.
I throw the car down into 2 and make sure my traction is off. The light turns and I go, chirping the tires a little, I hear 7000 RPM beside me as he tries to keep up, but he never had a chance. I was about 15 car lengths ahead of him in the matter of a few seconds. I let him come up to about 3 car lengths behind and keep him there. I switch into his lane to miss a slow SUV in my lane and low and behold he quickly follows and BAM theres a red light. I slide up to the line and so does he on my right side.. The girl looks over to our car and brian looks over as well giving her a big smile. The thug just looking foward intent on beating this old man car that just handed him his ***. Click, the light turns and I rocket away, with him falling behind quicker than a fat kid in a marathon. All this time, Brian is laughing as hard as he can in the side seat, almost crying.
I head down into the more crowded part of the strip and hes right behind me. Not flashing at all. Being cool and stuff. We come up to a light and hes behind me because the other lanes are full. I look in the review mirror and the Girl Friend is talking to her Boyfriend and he looks disgusted. He leans his elbow against the door and covers his forehead a little in shame. His face looked very, and I mean VERY pissed off. She seemed to be saying comforting things but he was stuborn. Then the light changed and I accelorate at a mediocore pase and he follows. Another light turns red and I stop, he comes up the side to try a rolling start as the light is fast and he tries to go, but i go too and he gives up in the matter of seconds. He soon fell back and was lost in traffic.
Brian and I chated a little and then switched dirrections on the strip and headed back the other way. Low and behold, there is a Saab convertable. All white with a body kit, and tvs in the back of the headrests. 4 thugs in the car chilling and cruising. I switch lanes and come up beside him. Brian leans his head out the window and yells "Hey! What movie are you watching!" One of the guy answers "The Fast and the Furious". Brian yells back "You want to see something fast and furious?" Just then i launch a few car lengths ahead in the matter of seconds. He looks back and their faces are stunned. They dropped back in traffic too.
I decided to hit the second major strip in town and fill up at the Hess. I come to a stop light and next to me is a Explorer with big rims and blasting bass. 2 wanna be thugs sit in the front seats, no one in the back. Brian yells "Ricer moving throught the intersection" I look quickly and see a shitty 80'* accord with rims and a wing. Just then the guys in the Explorer start yelling "Booh! Your rice sucks!" and other stupid comments. I just look over and they say "What are you looking at huh? My taillights pal!" Just then the light turns green and he guns it. Tires chirp and so do mine. My friend watches foward while i give them a big smile, and as i easily pull ahead of them I see huge shocked faces and pointing. I let them pace me and the passanger yells! "YO DUDE!" and chugs a red bull. The driver then yells "dude pull over I wanna see what ya got" I replied "Ok" and hit my blinker and got on the brakes, they start to laugh histericly and try to pull away. I slap the blinker off quickly and slide my foot to the gas. The car drops into 2nd gear and the Super Charger comes to life. They were about 2 car lengths ahead when i switched gas and in no time, they were right next to me. I yelled back "I'm not looking at anything! You're looking at my taillights" then i hit the gas and punched it, walking away from them like they were driving nothing.
I decided to pull up and put a quarter tank of gas in of 93. i was down to almost E. We get back in the car and head around town, I see a car with no tail lights and move up too see what it is. It'* a *** Orange Accord type SH. Not sold in the states, with a body kit, fin and 1 muffler in a 2 muffler body kit. His headlights were on. But his taillights must not have been wired right and didn't work on running, only breaking. Well I look in front of him and who do i see? A little old white hair lady in a Buick H body. This Guys riding her *** like a **** star and I say "Dude, thats not cool, I'm going to give him a lesson" I pull up behind him and start tail gating him. He starts to slow down a little, and a little more. The old lady gets away. He trys to fake out a turn and then guns it straight, well I heard him way before he started to get going and I stayed just a few feet behind him the whole way. He gets pissed and pulls off into projects.
Brian and I laugh and head out for more. Heading down the old strip I come to a stop light and a 80'* Caprice comes to a stop next to me. You could tell its a 350, but i didn't think anything of it. Just then a Ricer turns from and off street onto our road past the light. The light turns and I hear the 350 wind up like a ****. I first though 'He'll eat my dust now" but brian yells "He'* going for the rice" We had to make this one a team effort, I was in a position to pass him but an other explorer pulls in front of me. I drop back behind the Caprice and we shot up to the rice. The Caprice starts to tail gate the Ricer and I pull up beside him. It'* a Late 80'* accord with wings etc. with a thug driving. Tons of stickers on the side window including "Nos". He looks a lil scared and I hear his engine wind up a little and i just rip up 3 car lenghts ahead of him. He quickly pulls off and goes onto the highway. The Caprice comes up next to me and gives me a wave and a smile and we return it back. I noticed he went to my school with me, which was great fun.
By that time it was 11:30 EST and decided to head home. I pull into brians drive way and he says the icing on the cake.
"When i was looking for my first car, I never even heard of the bonneville. I was looking for a 97+ GTP, and i decided for my Maxima SE. But atleast one of us got this girl." I smiled and said "We'll go cruisng later this week." He replied with a resounding "Abosolutely!".
