Default Proud to get my butt whooped

Heading into town from work this morning, A guy in a pretty much brand new Porsche decided we needed to race. I thought I did pretty well, but he whooped my butt. I'm just proud he decided I was worth the effort, and put a smile on my face. Must've been a closet Bonne fan or something.

My bud and I traded cars last weekend.
He has a canary yellow 911 Turbo 6 speed.
He was actually impressed with the luxury with attitude of my SSEi.
Not quite as impressed as I was.
Proud. Ya. Right on dude.

And since a Porsche 911 is sports car with a midship mounted engine and RWD and light weight, I would consider it an honor to be considered for a race with one.
