Just last night I was cruising on the I-10 heading towards El Paso, TX from Lawton, OK and I passed this Acura Integra while i was going around 100 mph. Not thinking anything because i have been passing cars all day... Well the Integra catches up to me (I am in my '11 GT500 mind you) and wants to try and out run me. I let him go for a while, then say "F" it and punch it, 155 mph come up fast, I prove my point and I let off the gas. He comes up on my butt again and changes lanes to pass, He guns it, I faint him and he launches forward. We round a curve, (I am back on cruise control at 100 mph), as i come around the apex of the curve, he is in the the middle of the ditch and his front bumper and hood were wrapped around the sides of his car... Dummy. I am lucky and needless to say I won't be needing to do that any more.

It was childish, I know. but sometimes that side gets the better of me. Plus with 550hp at my right foot... it doesn't help. Those two guys in the Integra were fine, just shaken up I am sure.

Man... true story!!(somewhat) I was driving down the highway in the left lane.. tryin to pass a garbage truck. We were FLYIN! He musta been doin almost 65! He saw that I was tryin to pass him in the left lane, and he wasn't having nonna that. He wanted to BATTLE!!! So his trash gnome started throwin little pieces of trash off the truck, trying to scratch my paint! So I sped up and moved half over the rumble strips to save what i could of my paint, and drove right past the cop sitting in the median at the crest of the hill... err..

the cop didn't like that.. so he came out into traffic and started racing people... he swerved back and forth thru traffic til he was past me (i should have jumped off the highway once he passed)... anyway.. he had to go ahead of me to find the car with no front plate (me)... I thought he was just trying to BATTLE me too.. so I revved my engine (total fabrication)... anyway,.. got pulled over... told cop i swerved to avoid trash hittin my car.. and he gave me a warning to put a front plate on. THen I sped off and battled a mobile home!

Moral of the story: WHen you battle, you pay attention to the wrong things

meh, I ignore anything with an automatic, 4 cylinders, insanely modded cars or anything out there unless I know them and or know some of the specs of their car and determine if it would be interesting...

My Ride: Cabrio. Stick.
Why is it......that whenever I toodle along (& I mean "toodle") there is always a new Mustang owner or new Audi owner who drives up beside me, and either revs their engine or want to race or slow down beside me for a few lengths just show off their car to me? I mean,..I drive a 325ci cabrio,...not a Lamborghini. Are they jealous when they see the BMW nameplate ahead of them on the double lane so they have to show me their stuff? Am I "asking" for this?...I don't get it. Do they not know that I am the cheapest bstrd on the planet, so... NO,.. I do not want to red-line my 5spd nor waste my gas or time to show off back to a 22yr old who just "leased" his possession?........I have a paid-for 325, not an M3.

I wonder if I actually annoy them by continuing my "toodling" & let them waste their gas with their antics?.....Oh well, rant is done.

PS. Oh,...but I DO get the occas'l E46 owner who will come up beside me (esp'lly when my top is down)...& we'll give the nods or thumbs up. Now "that's" cool.

I never bother with integras, civics etc. wether stock or turbocharged doesn't matter. if stock. i'll win if turbo'd i'll loose unless i have 600 hp.

street racing strangers is dumb imo
