what is it about honda drivers? just kidding. i own a honda accord so i have nothing again the honda crowd.
anyways, here we go:
i'm driving with my wife on a busy friday night out - lots of traffic.
we're cruising in traffic at around 45 mph when all of a sudden, we hear this crazy loud revving next to us - my wife was like "what the heck is that noise?," and i look over to see what's up against me. purple prelude, one of the older generations (1996) i believe, and it looked pretty nice - purple paint job, LOUD exhaust, nice rims - couldn't see who was driving though but i could tell through the tinted windows that there were 2 people.
anyways, my wife was like, "don't they know what they're up against? this is a subie! ewww, stupid honda!" i couldn't help but laugh at my wife's little comment, but i was surprised at what she told me next: "c'mon, smoke him, sweetheart!" it was such a major tun on, lol. she never ever tells me to do that, and always gets pissed when i drive hard to test the rex every now and then. i told her i couldn't yet because of all the traffic. we end up stopping at a red light behind 2 cars w/ the prelude in the other lane about 2 cars back. light turns green and i end up passing traffic till i had no cars ahead of me and a long stretch of open road. all this while, i'm looking in my rear view mirror to see if the prelud wanted to play. he did. he weaved through traffic like a madman until he caught up to me (i'm doing about 35)- first, i let him do the ricer flyby - he revved at me a couple of times and then took off. he then slowed down so i could catch up. so now we're both cruising at about 35. it wasn't about a second after i caught up that he takes off - loud exhaust going off like crazy!, so he takes the jump on me, about half a car length, when i floor it in 2nd gear and put about 2 car lengths on him up until 65 mph and then in 3rd gear, i pull away BIGTIME, about 50 buslenghts(just kidding - more like 2 bus lengths, i think he stopped trying)
until 80 mph when my wife tells me to slow down. i slow down to about 45 mph to see if the prelude is up to it again, but now he's cruising way back, keeping his steady, not wanting to catch up to me this time i guess. my wife was THRILLED! not to mention proud of me and our little rex. I LOVE THIS CAR!
oh yeah, my only mod is an accessport (stage 1). my helix downpipe just came in today and i just ordered an MRT catback from a fellow subie member at nasioc, so i'll be stage 2 soon enough!
