Okay, this might turn out to be a long story, so bear with me. It starts last Tuesday, where I get something like the flu. Blah blah blah...it's Friday and I'm over all but the cough, which gets really bad. Wake up Saturday, can't pressurize ears, turns out one is badly infected and I've lost hearing in my left ear. Fun times. Anyways...
A friend and I are watching a boring movie and decide to go out and check out funky looking houses in the area, then end up just seeing where roads go. Takes forever but it's a lot of fun. Also means we were usually under the speed limit.
Before leaving, I told my friend some stupid ass would probably try to race us at SOME point, even if we're not interested.
And so coming back into Florence, we're just taking it easy, maybe 30% throttle, shift at 4000 RPM, cruise at 5 over. So some guy in what looks to be a newish Z28 gets next to us and stares. I wouldn't know if he revved or anything because it's my left ear I can't hear out of...and I wouldn't care if he did anyways. So we turn onto Florence Blvd and this guy paces us to the next light. Because I was close enough, I had to hit the brakes fairly hard and stopped just over the line...then he copies but from further behind. Then some old truck with megaphone exhaust tips comes flying up and slams his brakes to come to a stop next to us just before the light changes. I tell my friend these guys are probably gonna try to race us, even though we aren't gonna bite.
Lo and behold, I get rolling easy and into 2nd gear and the truck punches it, then the Camaro punches it and comes into my lane after him. To be honest, neither was particularly fast. Had I opted to, I would have embarassed them both quite badly. I wasn't impressed. Anyways...they keep doing like that while we just cruise along and use traffic to go around them, laughing AT them for being idiots.
I'm somewhat hoping they go post an STi kill on a forum somewhere so I can make them look even more like idiots... Anyways, I found this highly amusing that two people with slow vehicles and can't drive to save their lives were trying to instigate races with a car that would have raped them sideways and kicked them into next week. Very cute. Of course, they could just show up at the track sometime. I'll run anyone.
EDIT: Given past problems, I'll clear up a few things. Camaro was the wedge shaped newish (not newest) design with square headlights. NOT an LS1. Keep in mind that the VAST majority of Z28's were NOT LS1's. If I ever run an LS1, I will specify. Otherwise, it's safe to assume I ran the MUCH more common LT1. Also, please note that I am assuming anyone reading this is intelligent enough and educated enough to recognize storytelling language. This actually happened but I use LANGUAGE to describe it and make it more interesting with my thoughts. In real life, I'm very shy and very quiet. I hope this clears things up for most people.
