Default Grand Am

I'm coming home from an all night party at school at about 5:00am. I'm going down this road at about 50mph, common speed. I see this car behind me tailgaiting me, and I realize that I know this guy, he'* a friend of mine. He is in his Grand Am GT. He told me a long time ago it is pretty quick. So anyway, he does a flyby on the left. I hit the gas a little too late, almost too late where he had enough room to get ahead of me to get in my lane. So I punch it, and as soon as the engine came alive, I was up to 75 before I let off, and he ate my dust. It wasn't an offical race, but he knew I wouldn't let him pass me, and I knew he wanted to.

Those GA GT'* have165 or 170 hp (can't remember which). Even with the Ram Air hood package, they only get 175hp. Not good enough to beat us. Nice 'kill' Sol. You showed him who the real Pontiac is.

the Grand Am'* are no slouch, they're not that slow.. still not as fast as the Bonneville but they're still not bad.
