Default 'nother GTi

Ok...This damn kid at work keeps talking crap about his DADS new 2003 25th anniversary GTi. I'd agree it'* faster then my bonie, but the damn kid doesn't shut up. Then one day i realize i'm behind him at a light getting ready to turn right up the big 55MPH hill.Well he doesn't see me so i go after him and he takes off pretty fast (just got his license 2 weeks ago too) and i decide to show him the power of the 3800. I go flying by him at a bout 75 with my arms waving and a big stupid grin on my face. After 3/4 mile or so he decides that he needs to get infront of me so he starts driving like an ******* flying thru guys with very little clearance, and pulling all the lane changes with no room to spare, like all the BMW owners do on the freeways here. He says i only flew past him at the front cause there was someone in his way.... I need to borrow a modded Seires II SSEi, kinda like whisky98'* to show him what an L67 can do to his lil vr6'ed girls car....

Oh he has a car, a 96 Grand Cherokee (not limited) with plastic lower body and all. He'* got a cait type tube, and his GF with a 92 grand cherokee limited (same engine) who had 1 quart of oil, no back pressure and just overall running like crap beats him. Wait it'* not really his car, it'* his dads old car they let him use...

Yep i always say, where'* your car!?!? Oh you don't have one! If my dad had a vette i wouldn't be telling everyone how it would win, until my driving set it apart. But he likes Porsches, so maybe he'll get one a few years down the line...

That'* funny. I don't know how fast those new GTi'* are, but I smoked the HELL out of a fairly recent one.

My dad has 2 Vettes, but I would never brag to others it can kill their cars. It'* not my car. But I will often say that my Bonne can beat his 81 Vette. People have to ask "Really?" cause they probably think I'm joking.

VW GTi, VR6 engine, 15* angle V6, 200 HP, 224lb ft of torque (i've got one more stock, but i'm underrated), 6 speed manual, all in a little Golf (read:Chick Car and tiny)

http://www.vw.com/gti/index.htm

These wheels just don't do it for me at all, not on a performance oriented car.
