The last two days I have been traveling back and forth across the southeast. Got a couple of stories from it all and one from before.
The night before I left, I was out in my STi and came to a light where a C5 (non-Z06) had popped into the front of the lane, right in front of me. I'd seen him race someone before so was hoping he'd take off... When the light changed, he got to about a 5 mph roll then nailed it. I nailed it too...and kept up with him. The only distance he got on me was between when he nailed it and I nailed it. We shut down at about 70 mph. I still can't believe I was able to keep up with a Corvette...and yes, I fully expect lots of "oh, he must have been a bad driver, meaning you can't be all that good either" comments but will dismiss them readily.
Then on I-65 to I-20, I had several rice-bys. The first was a Prelude. He got up next to me and wouldn't look at me, then slowly passed. As soon as my signal came on to exit 65 to 20, he started revving up like some angry little bee. What a wuss. The next one was something like a Civic with hideous tail lights and a fart can. I was in the right lane and he was in the left. He came up on me, hung back for a minute, then just blew by and never looked back. Pansy.
While in Florence, SC, I saw a blue 2002-2003 model WRX with exhaust work and BOV...turned around to go check it out. Never caught it but on the way, a stock 4-door Accord revved up at me and tried to race. So, I took him up on it...I gave him a car length before I touched the gas pedal (from a 60 mph roll). The 4th-5th gear combo was way too much for the much lower powered Accord. I blasted by him like he wasn't moving, then shut it down. When he kept going straight on the road, he honked and gave a big thumbs up.
The next one was a friend's Grand Am with fart can. We lined up at a light on a long, straight highway with no traffic. He revved up, I didn't. Light changed, so I gave him a full car length before I started. Before 60 mph, I passed him like he wasn't moving.
On the whole, the trip was a lot of fun, minus the detonation issue at the end. Other cars I wanted to at least have a quick go at but they were unwilling (350Z, Corvette, Mustangs).
