Default Poor loser in a Chevy Blazer....and a Saab

I was on my way to Binghamton last Friday afternoon and some retard in a Blazer was tailgating me, even though I was going 10mph over the speed limit already, in the fast lane. Usually if someone is on my a$$ I stay the same speed to **** them off. But this guy I wanted to f- around with (he had a girl in the passenger seat)

So I bust up to 95mph, and eventually he ctaches up and STILL tailgates me. People like that are begging to get in an accident. I slowed down to 80 to **** him off some more.

Then he tried to pass me on the right. I wasn't going to let that happen. So as he'* about to pass me on the right I punched it up to 95-100 again and he was a good 5-7 car lengths behind me in no time. I was looking in my rearview and what do I see....he'* flipping me off!!! What a sore loser! HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!

Shortly after that moron was well behind me some college looking guy in a black Saab was now on my a$$. I basically do the same thing as I did with the other guy. After hitting 95 with this idiot still riding my a$$, I slowed down to 75 and stayed right next to a car in the right lane so he couldn't pass me on that side. After I was sure that pissed him off I got to a straight part in the highway and floored up to 113mph and quickly saw him get lost in traffic. I didn't see him on my a$$ anymore.

I love road trips.

There were a bunch of cars behind me. Once I found a straight road with no cars I went for it. Luckily it wasn't busy so I didn't have to slam on my brakes going that fast

nice kills man. Watch out though. Some of those blazers have 4.3L v6'* and those can be deadly. I know because one of my friends has a sick blazer that is one of the fastest known cars around where I live. And those sabb'*, watch out to because some have turbos and those can be quite quick, so again watch your back if u ever race another one. Great kills though. I am dying to race a sabb and beat it'* ***. The balzer is another story.

hell no I am not afraid of vans. My mother had a 95 dodge grand caravan with a 3.5L v6 and that thing hauled ***. I have never raced a van, ever. If I was put into that situation, I wouldn't be afraid to line up, believe me. That sounded like a sarcastic comment to me, but again that'* me.

Blazers can be deadly? It'* an SUV with under 200 horsepower. (Horsepower is rated at 190 at 4400 rpm and torque is 250 at 2800 rpm to be exact.)

Now, a Trailblazer is a whole different story. They have a 4.2L Inline 6 with 275 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 275 torque @ 3600 rpm. And, according to Motor Trend, it will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 7.78 seconds - if I remember correctly.

In essence, I really don't think Blazers are worthy opponents. However, I would certainly think twice about racing a Trailblazer for Pink Slips unless I was supercharged.

^ My two cents.

No this was 81 South this time. Whole different world. A lot of curves and hills, and much higher elevation. I was cruising on curves at 100. I had too much fun.

UniqueSE, I'm not afraid of Blazers. They're nothing. It'* not the first one I've had the pleasure of embarrasing one. And I've killed a late 90s Saab as well before. This one was a little older. You';re right though, the Dodge Caravans do cruise pretty well, but not a match for the 3800. I've driven one and it'* no contest.

Well the blazer I am talking about has been extremely modified. I believ the bored the engine so it is unreal quick. It is a older model blazer and not the newer blazer which I think are crap. Yes the caravans do cruise quite well, I loved driving my mother'* van, that was pretty much my car before I bought my bonnie. I could burn the tires so easily on that van. I hear alot of things about those trailblazers and how powerful they are. I really want to get an ssei very badly. I had the chance to buy a nice black one a couple of months ago, the guy was asking about 4 grand for it, looked like new, I think it was a 95. I didn't have the money at the time, if I did I would of easily scooped that car up without even thinking, but I am planning on taking a loan out to buy a 2001 or 2002 ssei once my 90SE goes which I think won't be for quite a while.
