Default Again with the stupid ricers

Last night I'm driving across town. Got the cruise set to 30 mph and I'm moving in some rather heavy traffic. Perhaps 3 cars length in front of me. I come up on a red light and it turns green just before I get there. At the light is a black Mitsubishi eclipse, because I really didn't have to slow down I rolled right past. I could hear the fart can kick in and I see him rolling up on me. He pulls next to me and sits there. I hear him rev the engine. I just smile and shake my head. Remember, I only have about 3 cars space in front of me, nd so does he. He then drops back and really gives it some gas. He passes me and gets on the brakes. Again, I just smile and shake my head. I have to tell you, I did look down at the burn out switch, I really wanted to give the punk a good one. But I was a good boy. Messing around in town in heavy traffic is just a bad idea.

Agreed. Same as leaving your car stock so you won't be tempted to speed is a good idea. Don't worry though, Sheboygan is small enough for you to see him again.

LOL, and why I leave my bottle uncorked unless I'm on the prowl. To many tempting idiots out there and the bottles dont come cheap.

I'd be more worried about the ticket. You can't see the cops in the dark.

LOL always fun to laugh... they cant help it... i know... i put one to shame a couple days ago... he was rolling a ways behind me and slowly goes to pass and i guess he saw the dual exhaust and GTP emblem cuz when he got beside me he paused and took off.... i shook my head and met him 1/2 mile down the road at a red light... he started reving it up and so i was like ok.... when it hit green i rolled a lil hard *didnt even spin the tires, just launched well* but he didnt go... so i backed off... then i heard the fart can start crying like a baby with a full diaper and here he came... typical ricer flyby... well no no no mr ricer... hit the gas when he hit even with the rear bumper and he never made it around me... soon as i hit boost he looked like "WTF???" and i then spun *til TCS kicked in* and left him... it was then he backed off and wouldnt get even with me lol

now remember i dont condone street racing but this was day time and getting out of town to a 65 mph area so we never actually broke the speed limit, just got a little competitive getting there lol

i like to think i was a good boy, just had to teach the goofy one a lesson

Just remember back when---that would be us hitting the fart can when we were 19! haha. It'* kind of funny, I beat everyone that approached me, and got beat everytime I went looking for a run back in the boulevard express days.
I once had a Buick Electra 225 that was slow to 50 but race from a rolling 60 and run the needle past 120 and not have to turn the radio up and not spill a beer sitting on the dash- That car would empty the ashtray at 55 when it caught 2nd gear and do a burnout for a half mile on one tire---going backwards that is! ... oh, and love gas!

I've had some punks mess with me and I just let em go, cause just not what I do anymore. That'* why I bought the snowmobile that I did-when they see Thundercat on the side, they don't wonder if they can beat it, they already know they can't and we all save fuel.

When I was younger it was baseball cards held in the spokes with clothes pegs.

my first win in my Bonneville was today , i beat a 5 speed escort, even with a bad o2 sensor i was proud. probly the most i ever beat on her today too. i wonder what an ssei is like to drive

the guy in the escort was braging the day before about how he beat a 5.0 mustang ( i saw the race he did win) just feels good to put people in there place when it needs to be done
