Default Probing the Probe

Night Race. Sitting at a light, this blue bone stock probe pulls up next to me. The guy and his girlfriend start staring at me and they have a nice laugh. The light turns green and we both take off. I let down on my speed to make the turn, he didn't, then I floored it. He was behind me even after we made the turn then I was pretty much gone. I couldn't see his reaction because it was dark, but I am guessing he was stupified because he got whipped by a bonne.

Yeah it felt good kicking a probes @$$. I never really liked those cars, and they are also popular around here, so it feels good kicking popular cars @$$e$ with a 4 door family ride.

Yes it feels great! Then you sit back in the plush seats and grab your soda out of one of the 6 front seat cupholders, relax your grip on the soft steering wheel, push a little more to the floor with the refined engine and crank up the tunes from your deluxe (stock) stereo... And then you realize your in absolute heaven... "Bonneville Heaven"

Basically my wing is just an aftermarket spoiler I put on, but I do plan on removing it once I can get the car painted. My exhaust still contains the same stock piping and catalytic converter, I just changed the muffler, and put some new piping from my outlet tube of my muffler and personally installed a nice looking 3A Racing Dual Exhaust tip that looks nice and is about 3 to 4 inches long. I have a Flowtech Afterburner Muffler which I am changing to a Terminator soon. Plus I also have my Spectre intake. My car is pretty damn torquey for a 90 model, I clean it alot and vacumm it as well, change the oil every three thousand miles, and put premium at the gas station every time. It is a one of a kind car, and I love her.

All I wished was that people on this club lived in maine close to me cause I feel so left out because everyone here has a damn import and I barely get along with anyone because no one likes me bonne but it is cool, I don't care. I am just glad that people respect me on here, and I like my car and plan on cleaning it up and making it a lil more faster before I get my ssei.
