Default 2001 Eclipse...

so im visiting my brothers last nite at ther hometown... everytime im ther someone wants to fight me or some stupid such thing. anyways, i ask my brother, wade, why the guys all hate me, and evidentally its because all the girls seem to like me! i dont know, anyways! so im cruisin with him, jus talkin and stuff like that, and i see a 2001 eclipse ridin my arse i dint know whut he was thinkin, so i jus kept goin. im gettin thirsty, so i pull into a gas station and the eclipse and a grand prix box me in. they start talkin crap about my car because its a gramma car with hood scoops and exhaust. i was like, whutever, lets run em. the eclipse wanted to go for pinkies but i dint wanna risk it. some kid told me he had 240 hp in that thing. anyways, they follow me out in the country, but instead of waiting for the race road, he jus guns it. the gran prix goes in front and is doin 80 by the time i hit 55. so i let him go. the eclipse pulls up next to me, the kid is grinnin ear to ear. i give him the thumbs up and a condesending look and he hits the gas. so i do... whut happens next? i see some sort of headlights and silver thing in my rearview mirror.. i looked closer, and then i do this it was the eclipse! mr 240 HP 2001 riced out eclipse was losin, psh...

i was happy i won, but even happier to return to town and rub it in his face. well, this was a major kill for me, cuz i guess the kid is a big ol ***** to all the kids who aint his friends. he dint smile or make a dumb joke after that...

heres sumthin to think about. whut would i do with a 2001 eclipse? (shoulda ran for pinks!)

Dude nice kill, these are the kinnd of stories that are always nice to tell, yeah too bad about not taking the pinkies but look at the other side and if something had happened to your car or something and you had lost, where would you be now. Anyway awesome story and I guess that jackass will keep his mouth shut from now on

Let me know how you do with the new Caddy CTS. Or a Cobra. Then I'll decide whether or not to pack my bags!
