    my wrx vs. the z24 cavi

    well i'm driving down cliff rd. at about 1 o'clock in the morning coming back from my girlfriend's house and it's a nice cool minnesota night. Until a black cavilier with every sticker available in the world on it, pulls up and was acting like he was the kings of the streets, revving the piss out his engine. So we pulled off and we checked each other out. He said these were his engine mods: Port and polish, k&n cold air intake, cat back exhaust, and 50 shot. So with the 50 hp nitrous boost and the other mods on his z24 he said he had about 210 hp. anyways...onto the good stuff....we pull up the stoplight and after about 10 seconds the light turns green....i think i launched at about 4500 rpms and it was a pretty good launch, i was ahead by about 2 car lengths by 3 rd gears until i hit fourth and he gave up...haha... i kind of like in a sick demented way embarrassing someone's hard work..haha

    It's just a good feeling to wax a car that looks like it has 50 sponsors and should be on a race track. It's especially satisfying to beat those clowns with a baby seat in the back. Empty of course! I don't exceed 3k rpm or speed with my son in the car.

    when i had my wrx i was behind this camry. i really didnt get a good look at it, if i did i would have known that its this guys i know and its his wife driving it. anyhow, at the red light with her behind me, i see a civic si pull out and chirp his tires trying to act bad ass. i see her laughing from my mirror and thought, what, she thinks shes fast. well, next thing i know, i take off as i turn right and at about 50mph still flooring it, the camry just passes me up as if i was standing still, with the baby seat and everything. as she passed, i saw the car and noticed its a guy i know that has a supercharger, smaller pully, exhaust and some other stuff done to it.

    Z24 Cavalier with all that stuff could maybe run the same times as a stock WRX. Congrats on the easy win.
    This car is making a poor man even poorer.
