Default Yet another Civic for the kill book.

Killed my 3rd civic on saturday night while going to my girlfriend'* house on the freeway. I was cruising along at a good 70-75 mph when I looked in my rearview and saw the headlights of a civic, and they were coming up behind me quite quickly. So I decided to play a lil cat and mouse. He was almost on my back bumper when I punched it and at 85 I started to pull away from him. Then I slowed back down and he tried to pass me again, I punched it again and at 90 I started to pull away again, then again i slowed back down and he again tried to pass then I punched it one last time to 95 and pulled away until I had to get off my exit, he passed me with whatever attitude he had I don't know. But thatw as my 3rd civic killed. The thing was stock, or at least it seemed it to me. I love it.

I did see the guy driving, it was a kid trying to be all cool and ****. Yes I know civics can be fast, and I thought that we would beat me on open road and higher speeds but I beat him and it amazed me because bonnies have more low end torque and I didn't think I would beat him on open freeway and speeds up to about 90 or so. I have beat two civics on just regular streets going about 40 but no freeeway racing. This is actually my first freeway race. Plus the civic was stock and about a 95. I felt pretty proud and pretty amazed I beat him. I love my car.

ayup... you'd need high end horsepower... something UniqueSE'* (and my car, obviously), lacks.
