Default Race story

It was a Friday night and pretty nice out, so me and my friends decide to go to the local mall to check out the scenery. Being enviromental-friendly we decided to car pool, but since we needed good gas mileage we decided to be bad *** and take the one kid'* 1994 4-door Shadow. That'* right, a nice ugly gray with the paint peel going on because of Dodge'* bad paint jobs, a 4 cylinder for it'* whopping power(it makes it to 85!! after going down the biggest hill on the highway) and a 5 spd to launch us to victory we needed to race. It was the perfect unsuspecting ride, because it looked like something a 80 yr old lady would have as a grocery getter and has only half a clutch left. Well after cruising around the mall parking lots and beepin' at some ladies, getting on mall security'* nerves, and getting everyone outside of Border'* attention with the fake Dixie horn, we had to get going. We start going down the road and I try to locate a person worthy of racing. By yanking on my seatbelt and pulling it up to the ceiling(then dropping it and repeating the process) and holding a garden hose nozzle in the other hand, it was easy to tell if the person was game for a race. We found our first opponent, a 2002 Toyota camry with a girl behind the wheel. As we pulled up to the red light I dropped the hose nozzle and seatbelt and prepared for the race. I rolled down my window(I was sitting shotgun), put my arm out there and got ready for some shifting. Immediately the girl started panicing when she realized I was about to do some serious airshifting. The light turned green and we both took off. Luckily I was able to grab the gears while making a wicked burnout noise and left her in our dust. At the next light we thought we'd have a real opponent, a 2000 F150. Unfortantuly it was a female driver that was more concerned about her cellphone and her shopping bags than to respond to the rev of a worn out 2.5 next to her. So we decided to end the night by putting the car sideways a few times and doing a couple fake burnouts in a nearby town. Strangely after all that, the hot-rod shadow needed a quart of oil.

It sounded like something a bunch of guys here in Iowa would do after getting wasted... I could absolutely see a bunch of drunk Iowans driving around in a dodge shadow, making lots of fake burnout noises and trying to race people.

LMAO!

I guess that there'* no rule against fake (non) racing stories.

The burning question is....did you have a hangover when you woke up the next day?

The GA and Omni wanna be can't be compared. The GA had the "Iron Duke" as it was known.. IIRC the Dodge had the "Gonna Pop"
