On my way to work this morning I noticed this LS1 z28 in my rear view mirror. He was coming up pretty fast from behind me. I didn't really think much of it but was hoping for a race. Well the light up ahead turns red and this kid in a Nissan Altima (or something like that) cuts over real quick in the middle lane next to me. ( I was hoping the Z28 would get next to me).
So here I am sitting at a red light and the Z28 pulls up right behind me. He gets right up on my bumper. Thats usually a sign they want to race. Well the light turns green and I take off a little fast to see if the z28 really wants to race. He did. He kept the nose of his Z28 on my rear bumper. So I floored it half way through 1st gear (15-20mph) and the race was on.
I got a 1 car jump on him in 1st gear and quickly shifted into 2nd. Though second gear I pulled to about 2-3 cars in front of him. Then I slammed it into 3rd and continued to pull slowly away. When I shifted into 4th gear (95-100mph) he was a good 4-5 cars or more behind me. At about 110mph with me a solid 5 cars in front of him he gave up.
I slowed down and he pulled along side of me and gave me a big smile and a thumbs up. He seemed to be more excited than I was. I think he was very suprised. I would have loved to have stopped and talked to him. I then smiled back and we went on our way to work. He was really cool.
By the way the kid in the Altima that wanted to race was about 15 cars back.
