    What't the oddest race

    Reading the cavalier post I thought I'd start a new topic on what's the most, ummmm, not knowing car that tried to race you. Mine was an old 70 something Peugot that I didn't even realize was racing until I heard him slamming gears at what sounded like 10g RPM and still was behind. I also had:

    Mini vans
    Deisel trucks all the time
    V6 Stangs
    Cavaliers
    ZX2 Escorts

    My favorite was a taxi cab. Funny thing is, most of the taxis around Seattle are old police cars...so I guess in essence, I was racing a police car

    A little "K" car Alto non turbo FWD. That thing was 1.2L's of raging fury. Even though it only weighed about 1,000lbs it still isn't enough to get out of its own way.

    Yesterday a 5.9RT Durango (SUV) tried to race me. He was pretty fast, but about 2 tons too heavy to beat me.

    some old little Jaguar these two black guys were driving. they had TV screens in each visor. it was from a stop at a redlight on a wet road. You know the rest.

    There's also this guy in this stock S10 that wants to race me for money. I'm having trouble catching up with him again. I'm going to get as much money out of him as possible. he asked me how much hp I had. I said about 210. i ddnt' say that it was to the wheels though.

    What is it with the diesel and dualy trucks? I have had 4 or 5 of these guys romp on it from a stoplight while next to me...it caught me by surprise the first time or two, but now I'm aware of this strange phenomenon
    BTW...all of them were way behind very quickly

    99gt....LOL my favorite post was this one:

    I have been racing my Kia and have not won a race yet

    Hmm, probably an explorer. On a side note our UPS guy did lay down some rubber today in front of our shop (after much prompting by us). I was laughing my ass off.

    One that I raced was an old VW. I wasn't sure what year or what kind it was but I remember seeing a VW on it.

    What happened was I was at the light when this dood went up next to me. The light turns green and I hear the car next to me which ment he was romping on the gas. I casually was going up to 3k and then punched the gas also... but then I stopped because I thought he did too. But not knowing, he actually didn't let go of the pedal and kept on going so I did the same. The same thing happened again. The dood was obviously trying still while I casually switched it to second gear without flooring it all the way. This is one of those few times when I really felt like a poophead for wasting my gas.
