I ran into a 300Z last night. 2 young looking fellas were cruising around with the T tops slowing down to check out the WRX?
As we rolled to a stoplight 2nd row from the front, I asked them if it was TT. Sure enough it was. Of course he asked if my WRX was modded. Both the cars are stock.
As the light turns green he asked if I wanted to run. I told him maybe since I really have nothing to lose (Married, Wagon). He followed us to an empty stretch of road and proceeded to cruise at 50 as we lined up.
Since he has a manual and 6 cylinders TT, I figured it’s only fair that I initiate the race. As I put the car in 3 and gunned it. I expected the Z to fly by me quicker than I can say #!#%! I heard his engine come to life and he quickly pulled up to my rear doors. Surprisingly, He couldn't pull on the WRX and proceeded to fall BACK about 3 car lengths after hearing what sounded like a BOV. I was like WTF? While my wife was screaming and laughing, I had to ask myself... Did this 4eat wagon just wipe the floor with a 300Z TT? This HAS to be a dream!!
Figuring the race is over I rolled to the next stoplight (no ricer fly by), I asked them again if their car was stock after hearing the loud BOV. They told me it was actually the driver having a mis-shift. They told me that if all the WRX are this fast, they wouldn't wanna run into a STI
My wife had to mention to them that our WRX was an auto before turning off. Man, the expression on their face was priceless
I have to start carrying around my camera/camcorder combo with me from now on. If someone told me this story, I’d prolly call a big BS on it Then again, I think I just got butt lucky. I'll enjoy it while it lasts
Cool guys, nice car. The best race always come when you are not looking for it......
