    Vs. Hot Rod LeBaron

    I don't know what this guy was thinking but I am at a light next to a blue late 80's early 90's POS LeBaron. He had red flames going halfway up his window, white racing stripes a-la Viper down the center of his car, and some silly white stripe across his windshield.

    Anyhow, I see him looking at my car and he rolls down his windows (most likely just turned off his A/C for maximum thrust!), and he inches his car forward a bit. I'm thinking to my self no-way... but maybe it's a sleeper well the light turns and he lets out a might chirp as he rockets ahead (not really), I punch it, and totally bog, I'm like inching ahead... Then about 5 seconds later the boost finally kicks in and he's about 7 carlength's ahead, I pass him like he's dragging a house behind him, a few seconds later. To his amazement...

    We come to a second light, I didn't even bother trying to launch. Same story,he rev's, I bog, I blow him away. I am just cruising and I see him cutting through traffic trying to catch me.

    I know beating him was no big accomplishment, but... I live for racing guys like that!!! He made my day...

    does not sound like a fast car, no wonder they changed the name for the US market

    Wasn't worth the stress on my clutch, didn't really need to. I also forgot to mention he had red and yellow flames on his steering wheel, plus a red flame hanging from his rear view mirror...
