I'm just wondering
When I was 14 and driving on my permit, I would race people at stoplights in my moms SSEi with her right there cheering me along....but my parents are pretty sweet. Raced a Deville on the freeway in the GTP when it was only mildly modded when I was 15. ******* tried to pass on the right and I was already going 75 in a 65.
Damn my inability to let other drivers pass me!
While I do this sometimes when the situation allows, some people get a litte too serious in trying to do this. My dad actually had a guy follow him home one day because he couldn't prevent my dad from passing him. He was going 35 in a 55, and when my dad got to the short passing zone (most cars wouldn't have enough room to pass) he got out in the passing lane and went half throttle. (in the GTP, which at that time ran 12.2'* or so IIRC) The guy (in his Honda Pilot) apparantly went WOT to try to prevent him from passing. So my dad got on it a little harder (still not WOT) and passed the guy with room to spare in the passing zone. So the guy followed him home (my dad had already parked the car, got the mail, and was walking in the house when the guy finally caught back up with him) and was pissed saying he can't pass there because there isn't enough room and whatnot. Funny ****, but a little scary because you never know what kind of weapons they might have. Some people have a really bad temper and just flat out shouldn't be driving.
