Wasnt expecting a race on the way to work this morning, but the road leading to the interstate is 3 lanes, and the exit is off to the right. There is a light about 100 yrds from the exit, and if its red, i try to get in the middle lane so i can gun past the slow ppl in the right to geto n the exit first.(its a great exit, i can easily get it up to about 110-115 before having to merge into traffic.
Anyway, so i get in the middle lane and i notice this early 90s model Mustang with a loud exhaust and a 5.0 on it. Im not familiar with these models too much but im guessing a 1992 5.0.
I didnt have a chance to launch because i had no idea he was going to race, i wasnt even thinking about it for that matter. He guns it right off the line and gets about 1/4 car in front of me(remember no launch period) and as soon as i get in the good RPMS i pull him all the way through 3rd gear and he ends up about 2 cars behind before we shut down. I was pretty impressed, this is my first dig race since i got my Stage2 setup, i just wish i coulda launched, it wouldnt have been nearly as close i think. Anyway, both gave thumbs up. Seemed cool enough guy, dontt hink he was expecting to get beat by an import tho.
Anyone know how fast these old mustangs run? Does that sound right?
