    02 bugeye vs. 5.0 mustang

    ok so i was leaving work about a week ago and this late 80's 5 litre pulled up behind me at a light and started revving his engine, i was like wtf but just ignored him and went on my way.

    well the guy follows me all the way home (which is 10 miles out of town) and asks me why i didn't stop at the local racing spot. well he asks me to go up and race him cuz he thinks the world of his car, i agreed.

    when i got up there he started asking me all kinds of questions about my car, the dirty bastard thought my car was front wheel drive, and then asked me what type of car it was, "who the hell would have the nerve to follow somebody for 10 miles and ask them to race and not even know what the hell he is racing?"

    anyways he had 2 girls in his car and was acting like a bad ass, the first time i smoked him by like 3 cars and the second time he jumped the gun big time and in a hurry i missed second gear, found it then beat him by 1 or 2 cars, you want to talk about an embarrased person, well thats the only racing story i have and thought it was pretty sad!!

    It's a shame you think he's a jerk. He followed you for 10 miles, it sounds like he's quite fond of you.

    i never thought an untuned WRX with those mods would outrun a 5.0L. especially missing a gear in the one run.

    well the late 80's early 90's mustangs were pretty much dogs. 220hp I belive.

    now if you get in the low 80's the 5.0 was still carbureted and they were quite a bit better.

    and of course they got better as the 90's progressed. But the early 90's were horable for mustang. Now they can be modded like crazy and end up scary. But if it was stock or anywhere near I can see how you took him.

    heh I always loved beating those mustangs in my Taurus SHO. Talk about a confused mustang driver when the 4 door Taurus pounds you.

    I wish I still had my SHO around to drive every once in a while. Too bad it was a damn biatch to keep in good condition and any engine parts were outragous.

    my old sho



    oh the faces of people that didnt know what an SHO was when I lifted the hood. Yamaha built engine FTW

    Until they are on a good tire and know what they are doing, then we're in for some ****.
