I live near campus at Oregon State University and nearly every day I see this asian guy drive up the main drag of the campus to drop off his girl at the bookstore parking lot. Then he comes cruising back down with his windows down, pop hip-hop blasting, driving like an idiot. It looks like it's probably an '05 Civic Special Edition with the multi spoke rims. I always wanted to see some details on the vehicle. Well I finally got a chance, he lives in the same apartment complex as my girlfriend. I went over and inspected. AUTOMATIC POS with a stock exhaust. Where do guys get their cocky bull**** with a ride like that?
To bring the story to a point, I was headed to work the other day and this same guy comes flying up behind me, changes lanes and goes flying down the road at probably 70 in a 35 zone. I agree with the idea that racing on the street is retarded. But I knew this would be so easy that I really wanted a shot at him. Sure enough, we come up on a light and I revved it a little bit to give him a feeling for what a real engine sounds like. The kid throws his automatic into neutral and revs it. Light turns green, I don't even bother to lift my revs above normal driving start up and he jumps off the line (only benefit of an automatic) so I just planted my foot through 1st, nailed 2nd and I was 5 car lengths ahead of him. I slow down to 40 or so and what do you know... he AGAIN goes flying past me at 60-65. I hope he runs into the back of a semi-truck. My best friend is a major honda guy and I can respect that. But there are too many ****ers that don't know **** about cars and think they're the **** for putting a fart can on a random civic. (And this guy didn't even have THAT much!)
That's my story and my rants about hondas. Let's keep the WRX salutes goin' bros! There are so many sweet subies around my campus, I enjoy the subaru love!
