Around 0930, I see a White (current body style) Mustang behind me that appeared to have some GT or Cobra wheels. We were at a stoplight and he was behind me so I figured I would sorta get on it just to see if he would try to keep up. I did and he stayed probably 4-6 car lengths behind me for a long time even when he could have got into the lane next to me.
We approach a light and the scene became pretty predictable- he carefully pulled to the left of my car and I dropped my window (as I saw this coming). I asked what he had done to his car and he said he had a new exhaust. The new exhaust exited under his doors instead of under the rear bumper and the old exhaust was in his trunk. He then said "I can give you a run if you want" very nonchalantly. I said "of course". (THE ROAD WAS RIDICULOUSLY STRAIGHT AND CLEAR). I launched the car very well, and this guy did an equally good job especially given the platform. We were neck and neck through 1st. With every gear change he pulled like a beast. Through 3rd his car's front bumper was at my front door, and then came the dreaded 4th. He shifted into 4th and I swear the thing lunged forward like animal and growled also. I shut it off as he was about 2-3 car lengths in front of me in 4th.
As we were flying along He gave me a big thumbs up and said that is awesome for a four cylinder, asked what I had if anything. I told him about my CAI and the MBC that's in the mail (his eyes got big and he grinned when I spoke of the MBC). I told him maybe then it be closer. With a smile I of course returned the respect. We drove up the same dead road for about a mile more. He gave a peace sign- I returned it and got onto the highway.
I would like to see more encounters like this. It was done safely with out any potential for weaving and Bull S--t. I hate that s--t. Respect/compliment was given both ways. The guy was a very civilized representative of the domestic crowd. A real asset to them.
