Default late 90'* Park Avenue Ultra vs. 2000 SSEi

We had just changed the oil in the SSEi and we decided it needed to be washed. So we jump in the SSEi and back out of the driveway. As soon as we are out of the driveway (we are in a subdivision), a Park Avenue Ultra is turning around at the corner (our house is on the corner, so it was directly in front of us). They turned around rather quickly and spun the tires. There were 2 people in the car, they both looked to be about 18-20. We follow closely behind as they turn out of the neighborhood on to a 2 lane road (speed limit: 35mph), as soon as they turn they nail the gas and we follow keeping right up with them easily at 3/4 throttle. They let off at 40mph, and about 10 seconds later went WOT. We went WOT at the same time and passed them and let off at 75mph. They looked quite suprised from the look on their faces. I think they were trying to figure out why a car with the same engine just blew them away.

Little did they know we had rockers and a 3.4 pulley under the hood. BWAHAHAHA.

Anyways...not a great kill, but a funny one none the less. Thought I would share it with you.
