I had to share this with people that would appreciate it because the people that I work with just don't understand.
Driving to work this morning I came upon an older model Civic hatchback, probably a '91/'92. He had the typical 19 year old mods, lowered to extremes, wheels that had a higher value than his car, large fart pipe, and a tach with a shift light that looked like a wall clock mounted on his dash next to his A-pillar. I don't know if this happens to you guys but I always notice that people in modded cars, mostly Civics, don't stare at our WRX's, however, they do check their mirrors frequently and side-stare at us just to keep an eye on what we are up to. They know the capabilities of our cars from reading SCC every month and staring at us would make them feel inferior in some way so they try to do it on the down low. Anyway this kid is driving very calmly, not jumping lights or revving on me in any way nor was I doing it to him. We continued for about 4 or 5 miles in rush hour traffic when it happened. He was getting in the left hand lane to turn on to another road and he revved on me, big time. What kind of little coward revs on someone as they are turning onto a different road. I felt like I had been violated, like he had just given me one of those ricer fly-bys. Part of me wanted to make a U-turn and go back and smoke him just to reinforce the fact that the WRX could. But instead I laughed and continued my gridlocked drive to work.
I did not post this to instigate flames that WRX owners are better than anyone else, I am simply trying to make light of a funny situation that ocurred during a hectic drive in morning traffic.
