A BLAZER? Please. Folks, let'* remember they're geared like a TRUCK. And they're HEAVY. Yes, I'm a fan of the 4.3, as I've owned 3 (one in a truck, one in a blazer, one in a boat), but they're not built for what our cars were built for.

Yes, even a Blazer, if built right can be fast, but who would want to? Gimme a break. I almost (stress on the almost) got my *** handed to me last night by a Dodge Shadow. Yup. No kidding. But the telltale evidence were open headers below the rocker panels.....in the quantity of 4 on each side. You do the math. If it hadn't been for those, I wouldn't have bothered.

I don't race SUV'* or minivans. It'* a case of 'picking on someone my own size'. That'* like posting kills of VW beetles and mopeds. 94'* kill was typical of an encounter with an SUV or van. They can't hang. In his case, I'd have done what he did, but only because I was provoked.

I doubt seriously he would even look twice at a Blazer revving an engine at a stoplight.

You're right Will, I'd only laugh at a Blazer if one revved at a red light next to me. I've stopped racing easy kills at lights because it isn't worth it. The only easy kill I always race is my brother because he always thinks he can beat me, even though he loses every time.

I tend to show up losers when they provoke me by hanging on my a$$. I wanted to go 70 the whole way to Binghamton to save gas, but I always seem to find those a$$es who can't stay of mine.

But my main reason for this post was the fact he flipped me off too! I was laughing so hard when I saw that

Because of the finger, it was a good kill

And damn good work on the Saab. Damn good. Keep the green flying.

Good advice, Galaxy. That'* what I'm doing right now......like a madman. Doc sez I can't have any food or water after midnight, so I'm tanking until 11:59:59.

Under the knife at 11 tomorrow. If I drink enough, do you think I'll still be blitzed by then?

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.
You had fun too huh?
