This happened several years ago, but I was just thinking about it and had to post.
It was 12:00am on a Friday night and I was driving home in my sweet 1988 Hyundai Excel. For those in the greater Seattle area I was heading West on 85th at about 45mph (speed limit is 40). I pulled up to the light at 140th and was there for a few seconds before a riced out Civic pulled up next to me. You know the type -huge wing, CatEyez fogs, tint, fart can, etc.
The guy in the Civic looked over and reved at me - he was probably elated to see a car he could actually beat. A second later a cop pulled up right behind the Civic. Seeing the potential of the situation I decided to rev back. The cop did nothing.
When the light turned green the Civic launched and floored it while I calmly pulled forward. The cop just flipped on his lights and pulled the guy over. As you might imagine, I quickly reeled in the Civic - I had a couple bus lengths on him w/in an 1/8th mile.
That my friends is how I killed a riced out Civic with my 1988 Hyundai.
