I pulled up at a light last night near my house. Sitting in the lane to my left is this early 70's Impala, very clean and stock looking, nice rumble to it. Sounds like a big block with a mild cam. Probably stock. I give it a little gas when the light changed (launched slightly), and I see him start to go too.
I mash the gas.
Shift to 2nd, his front bumper goes to my rear
Shift to 3rd, he is about 3 Impala lenghts behind me.
Shift to 4th and start to slow, he is a good 5 lenghts behind.
He gasses it, starts to catch up.
I mash the gas (in 4th@2k rpm ) and he scoots by.
He gives the thumbs up and smiles, makes a left.
I give a thumbs up and smile back, make a right.
He was grinning from ear to ear and so was I.
