Me: Cobb Stage II STi (debadged )
He was in the right lane of a two way highway and just started up after a red light. I'm in the left lane a little ways back and I notice the "4S" badge which immediately made me forget about the ridiculous gas prices. He's not accelerating all that fast so I speed up a little and see that it's an old man who probably doesn't want to play so I just keep going past him at a normal pace. He must have seen the absence of the "STi" emblem b/c all of the sudden, I hear a loud rumble and I see him quickly disappear from my rear view and get's next to me when I hit it. I'm in 3rd around 3K RPM when I start and at no point does he ever get past me. I then start pulling on him slowly and by the middle of 4th, I got a good car or two on him. We see a car in his lane up ahead so we both kill it and he gets besides me.
He gets back in the other lane and I slow down enough so we are side by side and I give him a thumbs up. He then yells "Oh come on!". I know this was hardly a race and I just wanted to give him props on his nice car but boy what a loser. Maybe he thought I was mocking him or maybe he thought his car was the best in the world but what a freakin whiner. When I get beat by "lesser" cars I always give props. I have the utmost respect for those cars but sometimes, you get the biggest douchebag owners.
