There I am cruising down the highway about 80 and up ahead there are 3 cars that seem to be going all the same speed so I hop in the middle lane and slow to 70ish and wait for a spot to open so I can go along my merry way. Out of no where a NSX pulls behind the car in the left lane and rides his ass trying to get him to move over I would guess.
At first I was like wow an NSX, then I looked more closely and was saddened. Purple flipflop paint... and what appeared to be chrome dubs. Such a shame to do this to such a beautiful car. It had some sort of aftermarket pipes and it sounded nice but not sure if there were really any mods on it.
So he keeps riding the ass of the guy in the left lane and it worked the guy in the left sped up and was slowly merging into the center lane to get out of his way. So I downshift to third still going about 70 just because I want to see how well I can keep up with him. The left lane car gets out of the way and he punches it, I tuck in behind him and do the same. I'm gaining on him, I was amazed so I get in the middle lane and pull about a half car in front to about 95 maybe a little more. Honestly I can't remember if I got into 4th or not... then I had to slow because of traffic and I tuck in behind him after letting off the gas a bit.
Traffic opens up, he takes of and I take off after him... same result, except I get into 4th and keep slowly walking up to 110. Then traffic really clogs up so I'm on the brakes and we're a bit stuck and I see him weaving his way over to the right to exit, and it's my exit, he flys down the exit and onto the main road as if he's trying to lose me and I just stayed a comfortable distance behind. About a half a block up the turns yellow and we're going to catch a light together so now I'll really see what the NSX can do. At the last second he jukes into the left turn lane that leads into a deadend industrial part... So I'm at the light all alone and I look over for a while and he wouldn't even acknowledge I was there <shrug> It was the same reaction I get from so many of the riced out honda guys, they just stare dead ahead even though they know you are there.
I'm left wondering, is it possible a stock WRX can hang with an NSX from any year, I'm pretty sure this was one of the first model years. Maybe the NSX was beat to hell and not running right, maybe they aren't as fast as I thought, maybe he was in the wrong gear. Maybe he wasn't trying, but the way he was driving and the engine sounding it seemed like he was giving it all she had.
I really hope I just kicked his ass, because anyone that would do that to an NSX deserves a good ass whoopin'.
What do you guys think?
