    Seriously... He wants to race?

    I was driving along and a Saturn Ion flys by then brakes, then drives along side and revs his car up. All i could think of was " is this guy for real?" Short story even shorter nothing happened and he drove off into the dark.
    But, it got me thinking...
    What is the biggest joke of a car that has seriously tried to race you?
    Bring on the stories!

    Sitting at a popular intersection here in town, about a 78 Chevrolet 1/2 ton pulls up. Lifted, big tires and wheels. Passenger says "wanna race?" I ask him what's under his hood. He says "Dynoed 275 Horse 305" I say... nope, you're not worth my gas.

    This was after I had already kept up nose to nose with my friend's stage 3 Ram 2500. 500 HP and 900 ft lbs of Torque. But 8500 lbs.

    My first car was a 1973 Nova... I don't underestimate the power of a small block, but I was like wtf?

    With the older wrx's they were a close match, modded to stock probably will be close.

    Just the other day while on the highway a cavalier with a can sped up from behind, pulled along side of me and revved the engine. I just looked and laughed. WTF, are you serious?

    surprsingly its the complete opposite for me. no one ever tries to mess with me ever since i got my wrx

    only people i know with other cars which was only three times.

    once when my car was bone stock i raced my friend in his civic si(07) and i beat him and he had i/h/e

    another time i raced my buddy with an rsx-s with i/h/e and reflash from a roll and beat him

    and then there was this chump kid in his daddys beamer, we did a roll from like 30, needles to say i got to the top of second, looked back and didnt even both to put it in third, just put it in neutral and hit the brakes lol

    Just today I had some kid in a mid 80,s hatch back escort with a fart can and a k&n filter ( You know all the stuff and stickers that make your car fast. LOL) By the time I hit second gear I heard him let off the throtle and turn at the first available intersection. What a waist of gas that was. But I did tell him at the light that I would blow the doors off that escort!

    I often see punks in my rear-view trying desperately to catch up to me.....

    But once they get closer..... they catch a glimpse of all the gauges and never actually pull up next to me. Not that gauges make your car faster..... but I think the mentality of these kids "think" they do.

    Nevertheless..... I don't street race..... ever

    But occasionally, when one does have the testes to pull up next to me at a stoplight or something.... I just rub my fingers together as if to say "want to place some money on it?"

    ....... not one has ever said yes........ ever. Thats the easiest way to get rid of dumbasses.

    I catch a lot of crap at work too from good-ol-boys in Camaros that talk smack about my "riceburner"

    "I'm at the track almost every month.... it's super cheap.... Why don't you meet me down there?"

    Not one has ever showed up......... ever.

    Crazy but true, I had a construction worker in a backhoe (my dads friend) want to race me in my truck a few years back. I was like sure what the hell.
    He took a bucket lead off the line while I suffered turbo lag, then I smoked by him before that sucker started bouncing. You know how backhoes are when they hit a bump or dip at speed, some crazy 2 wheeling mechanical bull action.
    I've also had a number of people want to race me in my camaro, but getting less than 10mpg just cruising around, I usually just blurp the throttle and smile.
    Not too many people try to race me in the rex though.
