Default Had some guy want to race me for some...odd reason...

He was in a late 80'* model Blazer, the 4 banger one, oxidized paint, rust in some areas, and a big @$$ spoiler on the rear roof, and, under his front bumber, he had one big fog light, situated right in the middle.

I said, " ", and turned the corner, shaking my head. I didn't even want anyone to see me racing this fool...

I actually felt offended. Did he actually think he had some sort of a chance? Did he really think my car is that slow???

Sheesh, some people'* kids...

you're wrong. The blazers did have a 4cyl 2.5l option. the V6 was a 2.8l option (same engine that went into camaro I beleive)

Well, whatever it was, it sounded like a mad hornet. Thank God he didn't have a fart cannon...
