This black, early 80s S-10 pickup pulls out in front of me, the rumble was awesome. I gave chase for about 5 miles and finally caught a light next to him. I said, "Is that thing as fast as it sounds?" Dude says, "It's faster than that thing." I say, "What's it run?" He says, "Eleven forties." Then, without warning, he hits it and I just watched in amusement as his Mickey Thompson Cheater slicks hookup and the truck just tears down New Falls Road. He launched on me, I wasn't ready, so I did my best just to keep him in sight. Damn.
I follow him to the builder's house and ask him to have a look under the hood. He says, "Sure." Before me is no ordinary V8 S-10. It has a C5 Corvette motor, catless exhaust, and NOS. 11.40 in the 1/4 with NO TRACTION.
Simply awesome, I loved every minute of this beating and in a couple of months, I'll be back for my rematch!!!
