So I am on my way to the airport to pick up a buddy and I am behind a 98/99 Corvette. We are at a light waiting to turn left and the light turns green and he doesn't go, he just sits there. I was pretty mad because it is a short light...soo...I turned left into a gas station to cut through so I could keep going. At that time he decided to go and we meet side by side on the next road, from there I got past him so I could turn right onto the interstate. He followed.
He starts tailgating me on the onramp so I figure what the heck, lets give it a shot. I start off in 2nd gear and floor it, I was ahead of him all the way until 120 and then he passed me and I stopped around 130. He slowed down and gave me the surprise thumbs up. He turned out to not be a complete idiot. I gave him a thumbs up and went on my way.
Now I know, my car isn't as fast as a new vette, but against a late 90's, possibly automatic Corvette, I held up pretty well until the dreaded 4th gear.
