i'm driving to work this afternoon, southbound on Hwy. 246, a little north of the I680 merge. Me, cruising at 80mph in the fast lane, came up on a silver Mustang GT in the middle lane, a young guy driving, with his buddy in the passenger street. He looks at me, drops back a little and in the mirror I can see them checking out my stuff. I suspected he was getting ready to try something, checked my six, looking good - no cops. Looked up the road, not so good, traffic about a quarter mile ahead though we had a clear run for a little while.
So when he did the inevitable, pulled even with me, looked over and then floored it - here's the anticlimax, I let him go.
Fellas, you don't know how tempted I was, but starting the roll-on at 80mph and then flying up behind these other people at about 110 mph didn't seem like a smart thing to do so I didn't race him.
Funny thing, i know he was on it hard, cause I heard his pipes when he took off and saw the black smoke coming from his duals, but he wasn't really pulling away that quick. I suspect that Mustang was strictly stock and would I love to have a go with this guy under different circumstances or on a windy country road ? You bet.
