There just aren't a lot of cars in my area that want to have a little stoplight fun. But the one thing I keep coming across is modded hondas that have really cowardly drivers.
On Saturday I was cruising around a few of the local 4 lane streets with a lot of stoplights looking for a little fun. I take a left onto one of these streets and whatdya know a honda civic with exaust, altezzas, wheels tires and a few other exterior mods had just turned in front of me. Pull up next to him, slow to his speed and look over, he won't even glance at me. The light in front of us turns red and we are both first in line in our lane and we're both rolling to a stop, so I'm licking my chops. He all the sudden short brakes and tucks in behind me, didn't turn, just got behind me on a 4 lane road with no other car in the lane next to me.
Keep driving around for a while and another honda with even more done to the exterior (stickers galore) is up ahead of me, I speed and he is stuck at a red light with the lane next to him open, I pull up next to him and suddenly his turn signal goes on and he makes a left.
Today on the highway I'm cruising around on the highway and I see a little white car ahead weaving in and out of traffic, turns out to be the ugliest most riced out Del Sol I have ever seen and he is driving like a moron weaving in and out of traffic. The thing had BIG red Japanese symbols all over it and a wing that looked like it had a Hibachi attachment on it. I pull up next to him in the right lane he sort of looks over, brakes fairly hard and ends up pulling in behind a car doing about 60 in a 65 zone. I slow to the speedlimit, and he just stays put as I slowly pull away.
Then I come up to a civic that looked pretty stock (other than the exaust) weaving in and out of traffic much like the Del Sol and I pull up behind him while he's riding someones ass in the right lane, as soon as I'm behind him he puts his signal on and gets into the exit lane that that had been there for about a mile... Oh, did I mention the guy had painted white numbers on his window and that it happened to be an airport exit... From the looks of him and his car he wasn't exactly on his way out of town, and he could have been passing all these cars that he was bobbing and weaving around in the empty airport exit lane that was empty and had been there for about a mile.
Hell, I was all ready to race a Viper on Saturday, I was behind him on the very street where the first Honda was but he made a right turn on a 2 lane sidestreet before I had even caught up to him. Sure I would have gotten my ass kicked, but it would have been fun to see what the difference is for 0-60 in 4 secs compared to 0-60 in 5.5 secs. Also saw a 911 Turbo today, I'm guessing 02, I was behind him for a while in some traffic and I just drooled and mumbled something illegible to my girlfriend. I would have gladly gotten my ass kicked by him as well Why do these Honda guys even bother with the mods to make a car look fast but won't mess with anything unless they know it's a sure win?
