so i am coming back from dinner w/ 2 friends on a road in town (winston-salem, nc) that is known for having some less than classy drivers on it and what do you know a late 70s Chevy Silverado with no paint job pulls up next to me at the stop light. Well he sort of had a paint job what with the crayon-drawn flames on the side. i chuckle a little bit and make a quick comment to my friends but no other instigation.
anyway, the guy (probably about 17-20 years old w/ a nice mullet) has two hideous young females in the car. they continue to stare at me the whole time. then their expressions change to what seems like anger. the guy soon starts revving his V8 engine with no exhaust hooked to it.
the light turns green and he punches it (his truck was manual, i could tell cuz he was spinning his tires when he shifted to second). i didnt realize he was trying to race until after he started going so i decide i would give him a little fun. i catch him after about a second and when i get to 60 (i had put 4 or 5 car lengths on him at this point) i let off. he does the patented trashy car fly-by and then pulls into a gas station as if i am going to follow him in.
i continue to drive as i see him getting out and then immediately back in (maybe he thought i wanted to fight?). anyway he comes up to me and drives beside me staring for the next half mile. i try the usual shake tactics like braking to let him flyby but he keeps staying with me.
well we pull up to another red light and i roll my window down as the guy continues to rev and i say "are you joking?" in a sarcastic manner and he says "hell no i ain't joking, i'll kick your ass right here" and then he raises his hand to throw something (couldn't tell what) but luckily one of his "hot" chicks stops him. he then tries to race me off that light.
eventually he gives up and revs at me a bit and drives on about his way. at this point i am wondering why he got so pissed and then my friend in the back seat tells me he had been laughing and pointing at them the whole time we were waiting at the first light. so then i thanked him for making this great story possible.
wish you guys could have seen this guy, his girls, and his truck. i wish i had had my camera on me. o well funny story.
