Default Killed an Olds

I was coming back from Lake Michigan down Lake Michigan Dr. back to my home away from home. I was following some girls I was with at the beach. They were drving an Olds 98. I think it has a 3800????? We get near town, and for some reason, we kept passing each other. Close to the campus, I am behind her, and we finally make a full thottle run. By the time I got around her, I was 2 car lengths ahead at about 90mph. I had two others in my car, so I think I did pretty good. Both of our cars were very evenly matched.

Yea.

I'm happy with the kill. Beating a fellow 3800 is nice.

Umm they don't top out at 95 buddy. Someone figured it out, and without a govoner a normal Bonnie can do 150 at redline. They have the power to get there too.
