On my way to work this guy in a V6 Mustang gets right on my rear bumper. First off this isn't you average girly V6 Mustang. He has a ground effects kit on it, performance stickers on the windows, loud exhaust - most likely Flowmaster ) and so on.
I was in the middle lane and the road was clear on my right and on my left, but he chose to stay on my rear bumper. He basically wanted me to try and lose him.
I didn't fall for it because there was a red light just up the road. As I pulled up to the red light he quickly darted over in the right hand lane to get next to me. I could hear his music playing loudly and an occasional rev of his engine (flowmaster exhaust). He definately wanted to race.
I just waited. The light turned green and he nailed it. I give him the jump and then reacted. He got about a 1 car lead but by the middle of 2nd gear I was blasting by him like he was sitting still. I went up to about 70- 80mph and let off. I had several cars on him.
Then we get caught at the next light and his music is even louder. I expected him to go at it again but when the light turned green he just waited. So I slowly rolled off the light and went on my way. He just drove slowly and stayed way behind me.
I guess he got what he wanted. A chance to race an STi.
First off I know it was only a V6 Mustang - but hey, you never know whats under the hood. Last Saturday at the track there was a 50ish year old man with a Camaro that looked just like a V6 Camaro. It had no Z28 badges, V6 Camaro looking exhaust, cheap rusty looking oem wheels, etc. A 100% total sleeper. He was running
12.50s in the 1/4 mile. I ask him what he had done to it and it had an modded LTI with a cam, A4 automatic with a shift kit and a high stall.
So you can't always judge a book by its cover.
