    I guess I got killed by an HHR

    So this pesty little HHR is riding my bumper the whole way down I-95 from PA state line to DE.

    We both take the same exit and he's on my ass... (my god!! an HHR! give me a break!)

    So we get on the highway after the exit and he chugs it into the left lane. I look in front of me and see a pickup truck coming into my lane. I slow down behind the truck and he takes off.

    I guess I lose...

    All I had in my head was to smoke his a#$. But when I saw the truck coming into my lane I backed off. It was stupid to even have that in my head, especially against an HHR, but I feel bad.

    Getting into an accident over some BS like that is not what I would want.

    Just because someone can drive like an idiot, doesn't mean I should do the same. And I did do that for a few seconds. I feel bad for falling into that trap...

    Don't get me wrong... A good setup at a light or highway with no one around is one thing, but in traffic... I should have just let that turkey go....

    I will in the future.

    It's best to just let them go. Better than having your car impounded. Here in CA street racing is a felony. Letting jimmy ricer think he won is better than loosing the car and getting your salad tossed in prison.

    My brother had an HHR rental for a week while his Integra was being worked on. He was following me one time (I was in my '95 Miata) and later told me that he couldn't keep up at all, and that I was pulling away from him at every light. The thing was, I wasn't even pushing it. I was doing my regular 5k rpm shifts. I'd be lucky if the Miata is putting triple digits to the wheels, considering the state of tune it's in.

    Oh my god. An HHR. Those things are as aerodynamics as Rosie O'Donell is skinny.

    I'll pray for you.

    I think it was more along the lines of the HHR guy being an idiot and trying to look cool by just blowing by our friend here who was not racing, but instead trying not to kill or be killed.
