Default What were you thinking?

A Ford Festiva? Oh, come on now! What do you have for an engine? 2 Gerbils and a rubber band? Oh, only one gerbil, that'* too bad..

This idiot, yes, in a Ford Festiva, decides to create a lane at a light and try and get around me when it turned green. Need I say more? Even my daughter laughed. How sad is that?

god you should see this POS i see in jordan. the cars a METRO (i think, or somthing exactly like it)

side exhaust
tint
chrome hubcaps
fartcan muffler
all kinds of other crap too, i think it had racing stripes

this POS has a stick, and everywere the little dork goes he'* flooring it squealling those 155 width tires like he has somthing will balls. id be suprised if it did any better than 12 seconds for a 0-60, and if it even broke into the 17'* for the quarter. most likely 18'*


Then there'* another pile in the same town, a dodge omni. this retard actuall spent money on RIMS!!!!!!!! the stupidest paintjob, blue with big old STARS on it!! all kinds of other junk too, chrome plated plastic crap everywere

funniest thing is, these 2 kids actually think there cars are the shiznit

Pretty sad. Why is it that you see people with cars built for economy always going as fast as they can?

Well, if the guy had riced the car out or anything, I might have felt like he thought he could take me. But this was a stock Festiva and a punk kid. It was just sad.

That is one of the most messed up races I have ever heard of, a festiva against a bonneville SE, umm seriously. Those festivas don't got anything, I could beat that thing just by walking, and I can't walk that fast. But at least it was a kill, probably the easiest kill I can think of. Good job.

In a relay, you would have to have 4 cars.
