    STi VS Jetta Turbo--Highway Top End

    First I would like to tell you what happened on my way home tonight. It was stop and go traffic as usuall. Not paying much attention what was going on. All of a sudden I hear an engine rev(while we were sitting still). My first reaction was to lean away from the noise as I was sure whatever it was it was going to blow! I catch an "R" on the fender and when I get a good look its a 72 or 73 Toyota Tercel wagon. The guy wouldn't look at me. I thought whar a goof ball. He moves up in traffic and there it was A FOLGERS COFFEE that he cut and wired to his rear bumper. I ended up passing him and in my mirror I saw on his windshield "NOSPEED". I laughed very hard. This guy was making a statement and I liked it. He ended up passind me in traffic. I suspect the coffee can helped.

    Now the Jetta story.
    Saturday morning on my way to work it was a perfect day. Three lane blacktop curvy highway in a remote hilly setting. Cruising at abut 80 I notice a late model, very clean jetta entering the highway. Nice rims and a white collar guy driving it. I think nothing of it as I am just tooling along. The next thing I know this guy passes me rapidly. I think OK. It's ON. In 6th I just floor it. No problem even with the AC on. At 120 I shut it down thinking its done. Nope here he comes again. This time I think I will make my point clear. Downshift and floor it (AC still on). I fly past him. 140 I shut it down again. I think that will stop him. NOPE here he goes again. I just let him go and shook my head.

    This all happened in Texas where Primates run free(Dallas Zoo)

    But I havn't got the nerve up to remove the hood and have someone stand on the engine while I floor it and watch.
