Let me preface this story by saying that my car was in full and I mean FULL drag trim. I was running <3 gallons and the only thing left in my interior was the carpet, the driver's seat and the center console. Boost was set at 17psi and it was HOT as HELL outside 90+ with too much humidity!
I was cruising to a picnic in South Jersey. I'm southbound on 295 at about 80 mph when I glance in my rear view and see a Mustang GT coming up on me. We were both in the center lane. I figure, "What the hell?" and drop it in third. I had to move into the right lane, where I shifted into fourth and kept in down. I check my mirrors and look around. I can't find the Mustang!!!
Where the hell did he go???!!?
Aaaahh, my blind spot...
Well he was stuck there until I shut down at 115mph!!
I had lent my V1 to my sister for a trip, so I was flying blind, or else I would've taken him to 125 or so.
Anyway, it was a blast. I had a grin on my face up until I drove past a cop (after the Mustang) at 88mph in a 65. I don't think the trooper was paying attention because I didn't see him again.
For all those that think V8 are king on the highway, I say BAH! I still have my stock exhuast on my car!
