The incident was just humorous to me because he assumed that just because he had a V8 that made his car fast.
I remember when my buddy got his Camaro RS V8 with intake and catback for his 16th Bday. He was one of the firsts to get his license so we all thought the car was really fast. That is until I turned 16 and beat him in my mom's Grand Prix
Turns out his car was actually only good for high 15's AT BEST but we had nothing to compare it to so initially we thought it was fast, lol.
Then again, a year later his dad got him a brand spanking new Camaro SS with full exhaust that hauled ass.
