Kill story on the way to work this morning

A new Lancer was the victim. I noticed him in the toll both lane nxt to me getting onto the Turnpike... I drove through the EZ-Pass lane and he wound up leaving his lane at the same time. With both sprinted to get past a couple of trucks, but he was in better position to enter the highway. We both wind up going the onto the Turnpike the same direction, me directly behind him. At this point, I notice he has an exhaust, some wheels, and some stickers on his car. Nothing crazy, it actually looked good, not r!cey. So we take off down the ramp to get onto the Turnpike North, and he's trying to pull away from me, but it's just too easy for me to gain/hold my position.

As we enter the highway, both of our hammers are dropped. I ease into the middle lane and proceed to pull away so easily. I can see that he's trying so hard to keep up. Then we were going to be coming up to some traffic so we begin to slow up. Guy pulled up next to me and gave me props, we smiled and proceeded on our commutes.

Oh yeah, and except for the tractor-trailers we passed in the very beginning, there were no other cars/trucks/vans/motorcycles/pedestrians/birds/or anything near us.


sorry for the long story

Another kill story... last night

Coming home from a great dinner at the Culinary Institute of America in Poughkeepsie, NY last night, I come up on a black Viper. I'm in the left lane and he's in the middle. I'm passing him, on cruise-control @ 80mph. As soon as I get 1-2 car lengths ahead, that monster takes off and pulls next to me. I look over and see the guy grinning. So what the heck... I give him a nod, he motions for me to go first so I slip into third and drop the hammer. Well he let's me go for a second, and then he proceeds to blow my doors off. Day-yaMN Vipers are FAST!!! We only took it up to a little past 100, or at least I did, and he had me by a decent amount...


hehehe it was humbling to say the least! :tongue:

Nice B !!!

Make sure I never drive next to you !! haha


ps

Vipers rule -

It's not about numbers - Once again, it all comes down to the drive -


DRIVE A VIPER, THEN TELL ME IT IS A **** CAR ..


funny - everyone has a bad comment about things, without even driving or testing them- gotta love it

...funny - everyone has a bad comment about things, without even knowing if the person has experience driving and testing them - gotta love it.

No doubt! I tried to convince a cop of that about 3 weeks ago. I distinctly remember his mubbling something about rich lying S.O.B's or something right before putting the handcuffs on. Damn him.

C32s have supercharged V6s, not V8s. Watch out for those!

The end of last summer I was on my way home from the dealership and a whit M5 pulled up to me. So I figured what the heck. He let me pull ahead about 2 car lengths off the light. By the time I hit 100 he was at least six car lenghts ahead of me. Those things move especially for a four door.
