Probably not, but it made me chuckle anyway.

So there I am headed home last night when this older looking Honda hatchback pulls up beside me at a red light. First, it looks like this guy did his own custom paint job with a broom, second it sounded like grandpa after a night of bad mexican food. But hey, to each their own :4-dontknow:

Anyway, it's pretty late and I'm on the main stretch going through my town, which is known for hiding LEO's every couple of miles. Either this guy didn't know or didn't care. So the light turns green and bam! he's off like a shot, loud annoying braaaaaaaap braaaaaaap right in my ear, while I'm pulling forward like a normal human being.

He doesn't even get halfway to the next light and out of the darkness just all the sudden blammo! Blue lights and siren wailing from behind a hedge in the median. Poor guy never stood a chance. I calmly passed him doing 45 and continued on down the road chuckling to myself.

It seems to me something about these cars brings out the a-hole in some people? :shakehead:

Sounds like he got his just reward! I know this isn't nice, but doesn't it kind of make you feel good when someone gets caught doing that to you, and they sort of have a yuky looking/sounding car?

From where I was sitting I knew there was about a 90% chance of an officer being nearby, you don't drive down this road and NOT know they are near. There is a healthy amount of muscle in this town (mostly Mustangs and Camaros) but there is also a hefty amount of tuners, and they are the ones that always seem they have something to prove.

But this guy... this guy was just annoying. Even if there wasn't a cop nearby I wouldn't have wasted my gas on him. :smiledown:

Good call on your part Dave....some people never learn and even learning the hard way doesn't sink in. There is a time and a place to have fun like that and knowing that is part of winning, regardless of the out come.

I get a lot of people tempting me like that, some times i think my car just has a way of edging people on to do these stupid things. one thing i have to say is that i never give in to them and i never will.

Lol. I have also had it happen countless times. The way I look at it is like this. What is the upside for me in that run? With a ricer? I win- I beat a ricer. I lose- I lost to a ricer. No upside imho.
I had a hole in my exhaust way back in high school in my Ford Escort GT. Yes im that old. And it made the car sound like these tuners. I was embarrassed til I got it fixed. These guys like it. They drive around and I just laugh and shake my head. But to each his own......I guess. Ill take my rumble all day long over the chainsaw.

It's all good Dave! Your white beast just got him all excited, but the dose of berries and cherries calmed him down.............
This was actually when I still had my black SXT, but even if I did want to try him I sure I could have embarrassed him as he shot off the line like a turtle stampeding through peanut butter! So far no one has tried me in my R/T. I do dig the berries and cherries comment though lol :hah:

It always pays to know the usual ware abouts of the local police, there's certain sections of road near me that always harbors a few so it's best to be paying attention in those areas. My guess is it was some young kid that was itching to know how his car stacked up and that overrode his common sense or knowledge of the areas law enforcement.
