well after owning my wrx for a nearly a year, I finally got to race a Mustang GT today but it really wasn't that much of a race.
In fact, it was kind of sorry.
I was approaching a stop light at a three-lane intersection today, when I noticed out the corner of my eye a red mustang convertible fast approaching on my left.
I was doin' the old endzone dance in my head because I've been wanting to race a GT ever since I bought my wagon.
The car was probably a mid to late 90s model (previous generation), which actually still looked very nice.
I knew the guy would try to be sneaky about launching, so I waited for him to leave the light and then he nailed it a few seconds later. I did the same and caught him pretty quickly. I even bogged shifting into second but I still hung with him.
A few hundred feet up the road another red light. This time I look at the guy and he just looks straight ahead, waiting for the light to turn.
The instant it did, I hammered the throttle and pretty much left him behind. a quick shift into second and then third and the GT driver gave up and began cruising back.
After that he just didn't want to come near me, and stayed directly behind me in my lane.
I don't think he had a clue what kind of car I had. He probably didn't care, either.
I was kind of miffed that the race was as quick as it was. Jeez, that sucked.
and if you want to know my mods, I don't have any, unless you consider Mobil 1 and an aftermarket Fram oil filter mods...
