I left work earlier around 4pm yesterday to go look at a house. I'm driving from Jimmy Carter > Holcomb Bridge > Hwy 92. I pass Roswell HS and I notice a silver Camero SS and purple Mustang GT pull out at the light infront of me. I thinking to myself that I always wanted to race a SS off the line so I started going a little faster ... 60 instead of 50. Well the SS got into the left turning lane so my chance was gone as I was still going straight. However when we reached the next light I noticed the GT in the far right lane w/ a van between us and me in the left lane.
It just finished raining so I figured that if I launched, it would be unfair for the GT and wasn't even sure if he wanted to run. So the light turned green I start in 1st faster than normal just to see what the GT would do. I slowly progress through 1st and I notice the GT staying w/ me. I shift into 2nd and now I see he going. Basically it all started around 35mph in 2nd and I went WOT. I went from 35-90 and pulled many bus lengths on him. I think he stoped after I pulled the 1st bus length but I wasn't sure so I kept going. We hit another light and the GT was behind me. Then I see him get out from behind me and come into the left turning lane while rolls down his passenger window. I figured he wanted to chat so I rolled down my windows.
He starts out "Damn you suck, you're AWD kicked my ass. I saw when you hit 2nd and pulled while I just kept spinning. Then you're just gone." I replied "Yeah, AWD is so much more fun in inclement weather. I was about to launch from the light but I thought that would be unfair if someone's not ready." He laughed and agreed. I asked him if he's done anything and he replied that is a stock GT w/ 260hp. He then states "Umm, I actually need to continue to go straight but I wanted to say hi. Also your exhaust sounds NICE." I thanked him for the compliment and of course let him got infront of me when the light turned green.
