Default Saw something fun tonight

Tonight I saw a car with a scoop cowl hood and I though it looked normal until I noticed the headlight. Well the car was a little cavalier with one of the rediculous stick on scoops, I could only get a side view of the car and I will post pictures when I get a chance. I found it interesting and funny.

prolly had a fart can exhaust too

That just reminded me... I had a buddy (in a GP n/a 3800 sII) a few cars behind me while i was heading outta town, he passed those cars and got right behind me. Then we went to pass a Cavalier and of coarse the driver dropped a gear (5 sp) and floors it trying to make it so we cant pass but we stomped the gas and flew right pass him. my buddy calls me laughing, he says "Did you see that!?!" I said "No, What?" he said "when we were flying past him he got this horrable look on his face, looked at his speedo, bit his lip and stomped on the gas so hard, that his body was stiff like a board, then got pissed at his car cause he couldnt block us and started punching his steering wheel!, HAHAHAHAHA"

A couple years ago, some old guy in a Lamborghini pulled up next to me at a red light in front of a highway on-ramp. I didn't stand a chance.

Cars that are capable of being fast do not always mean their driver can drive it that way.
So what if its an older guy in a Lambo/Ferrari/Porsche etc, ? A lot of people who can't drive worth a crap buy them for the image anyway. Its funny as heck to blow their doors off with some POS car (in their mind anyway) and watch the reaction as their ego slowly deflates.
Money can buy the car, but it can't always buy the skill to drive it!
