Last Friday, I was heading off to Regal Delk 10 theaters, Marietta. I had 5 people in the car, including myself. I was waiting on a red light heading north on US41, and I heard this yellow EVO revving on my right. He was about 2 cars back on the right lane. My wife looked back and told me that he was signalling to me.
So off the red light, I slowed down, doing about 30 in 2nd, waiting for it all to start. I wait till he lines up to my right and go off. The first one was too hard to call, I just did 2nd and 3rd gear, and we hit the next set of cars.
I gave him the thumbs up, and notice he had his girl friend by his side. The traffic opened up and he had 1/2 car on me this time. He wanted to cut me off, but he didnt have enough space. We slowed down and I turned onto Delk road( read deserted! )
I was all excited and we do a second gear launch again and were pretty even. We came to red light and he signals me to lower the window asked me if I wanted to race on I-75. I told him, I had to catch the movie. He points to the 3rd car on the intersection on the otherside, says watchout, and it was a cops car !
I just had time to ask him one last question., his wheel HP. He said, "hp is 320". I shout back, "crank or wheel ?". He said , "modded evo with 320 at the wheel".
We give the thumbs up and depart.
Now I'm wondering, with 5 people in the car, on a stage 2 wagon, that was pretty darn impressive... It might not be quite the same without all the load
All this time, my eclipse driving friend in the back seat proclaims that evo is gods gift to man !!!
