    Poor little civic.

    Ok normally I wouldn't most killing a Civic but this was a kind of funny story..

    I'm driving on the highway just heading home from work when this older hatchback Civic from rolling up on me fast. I just passed a slower car so I move over and let him by and he keeps on trucking. He's moving about 80mph and I'm at like 65mph ot 70mph. I start to notice I'm now catching up to him and now I need to move over to pass him. I do and change lanes again. Well this guy gets along side me and say "nice car". I said thanks and checked out his ride. Looked stock except a big tach on the dash. Even had the stock exhaust on it. Next thing I know I can hear him floor it, but he's not going anywhere. I mean I stayed the same speed and he maybe gained a 1/4 car on me over like 5 seconds.

    So just for the hell of it I down shift to 4th, then 3rd and punch it. I just ran 3rd out and all I saw was headlights in the distance. I shift back into 5th and just do my normal thing and BANG.. He does a flyby at about 100mph. I don't think he ever let off and it took him that long to get to 100mph.

    My guess is the kid has plans for it since on the back window it said "Under construction" and a new tag on it.

    Anyways hopefully he will do something with it. 99% of the Honda's around here and slower then stock cause of all the crap they put on the car and no power mods.

    Atleast he made a boring ride home into something fun.

    Was it even worth losing a few MPG on the way home?

    Normally no.. I would have kicked myself for the $0.50 it cost me to run him.. But for the laugh I got from it.. I would have paid $5.00 for..

    I bet you that the kid is honeslty thinking that, but no way, it will not make a difference against our WRXs. Even if he got a decent turbo, our stock turbo with our Boxer 2.5 engine stock would still probably take him. Granted he could put some crazy turbo on it, but the price and cost or it and the things required for it combined with his car's price and current mods are more expensive than a used WRX. Good luck to that kid, he probably had floored it since you past him, and only then did he catch up...
    good kill.
