I was on my commute down from my girlfriends house in long beach this morning. I took the 73 toll road from the 405 south. After about 6 miles on the tollroad I hit very dense fog, but I keep my cruise control set at 80 and just turn on my fogs. After gaining on slow traffic in the left lanes, I sweep over two lanes to get past. I then get over in the second left lane and keep cruising. After a few mins i look over and notice a red fourth generation Camaro Super Sport keeping up with me on my left. I think nothing of it and keep driving. He then proceeds by dropping a gear and taking off. Still me being my mellow self I keep driving and not think about it. He then hits his brakes and slows down to my door and my speed. I look over and he starts feathering his throttle pulling up and pulling back. In the next few seconds we reached to the top of the hill where the toll is. The fog cleared up and the sun shined brightly on 4 lanes of deserted tollroad. I then droped down to 5th and take off from 80mph. I didn't expect what happened next...
85 - We're nose and nose.
90 - I start pulling slowly
100 - His right front fender is at my door.
110 - I keep slowly pulling on him
"Breath" I said to myself. (I noticed i was holding my breath, which will cause heart rate and blood pressure increase. Which can cause me to make a mistake.)
120 - His fenders at my left rear quarter panel.
130 - We pass the Fast trac toll and I let off with his nose at my rear bumper. He passes by me and lets off as well. I slowed back down to 85 and he followed. He pulled next to me again and I rolled down my window and gave him a thumbs up. He did the same then picked up a little speed, I got in behind him and followed till he got off a couple exits away. I was surprised, I always thought they had around 320-340 to the wheels and mounds of torque but i guess not.
Cliff notes : Camaro SS < Bugeye
My pops wasn't to pleased to hear this.
