    Puppy kicking I know, But

    So this weekend I got a decent deal on a used front mount and decided to go ahead and install even though I wont get retuned for a few months. Bad bad boy I know but I barley drive to car now and new toys drive me crazy sitting on the floor. So I intsall front mount and LICP and go for a quick spine around the block. Not trying anything crazy, I just wanted to make sure the piping wasn't going to blow off under load. I do a all out pull on the express way on ramp and shut it down as the first exit I hit takes me back home. As I exit and make the first turn heading back home I see an old dude in a Lexus SC convert doing some ricer stuff in the rearview and gaining ground on me real quick like. I really didn't think to much about it as I was trying to pay attention to the car to make sure no funny noises were happening. As the guy gets up on me I realize that his crazy driving was intentional as he was trying to get up next to me. First light we hit I still was in the dark about what he was trying but when the light went green he nailed it and took off. Knowing my tune wasn't set up for the new parts I let it go and figured the guy would realize I wasn't game and chill but we both catch the next light and the dude is giving me a hard stare down. Light goes green and again he takes off like a bat out of hell. Again I just cruise as I am just happy to have new parts and have everything run good but sure enough the next light up goes red and we are right next to each other again. And once again I have this old dude giving me a mean stare down. So I finally look back over at the guy and he is looking at me, my car, me, my car, light goes green and he nails it. Well by this point the guy had just got under my skin and while I didn't luanch I did let out smoothly and proceeded to put about 15 car lenghts between us. The best part was I actually cuaght the last light before my neighborhood and the guy, (when he got there) wouldn't look at me. No thumbs up, no nice ride, nothing. Just some old dude who wouldn't look up from his dash. I know its a puppy kicking but some people just deserve it.
    Recap: Old dude gives young guy evil stare down and has his Lexus SC put down.

    You will learn quickly that we don't enjoy hearing about people tearin the streets up.. best thing you could have done is just give him a thumbs down and continue doing the speed limit.

    The SC looks great from the rear 3/4 angle IMO. Nice cars.

    Looking at some 1/4 mile times for the SC its funny that this guy was egging me on like he was. They are pretty slow actually. I found 15.8 to 14.2 times for them. I thought they would be faster then that given the price tag.

    Agreed. Maybe the nicest looking Lexus?

    If you are curious I would recommend driving one. It is a little jarring, especially for the brand, but it is IMO a great tourer. A great choice especially because the generally German competition is not as reliable.

    To Sasquatch: probably, since their sports car (name forgotten and IMO deservedly) isn't very balanced in my view. They had some saloons by Giugiaro that look nice too though.

    Ah, the LFA. As I recall Top Gear (UK) said they will loose money on each one they sell. They'll make it up in Corollas. Maybe.

    Couldn't disagree more...but to each their own.

    I know a lot of people who like the way new Camrys look too...clearly people are entitled to VERY different opinions.

    But then again....what do I know about good looking cars? I drive a 2011 WRX. And an El Camino. Sigh.
