Yesterday was a pretty nice day and alot of people around here had their cars out. I drove past my friend Steve's house and his dads Sunbeam Tiger track car was parked out front so I stopped to take a peek and see what all has been done since the last time I saw it.
Full roll cage, new rear end, new tranny, and street slicks... hmm.
As I'm getting ready to get back into the car, Steve comes out and laughs and tells me to get my "rice burner" out of his driveway.
So I tell him my rice burner will rip him a new one (I knew it wouldnt). He says "OK, prove it". Goes inside and gets the keys and comes out and tells me to follow him.
He pulls out and I follow him to the highway. We get to a light we can pace the yellow on and line up. He yells "Sure you wanna do this?" I laugh and tell him I'll take it like a man. Light turns green, and that was that.
I never had a prayer. He beat me out of the hole, and pulled me HARD. He was a good 5-6 cars in front of me by the time I shifted to 3rd. It was insanely fast. It was completely and totally out of my league, and I knew it before hand... but getting to see that thing tear down the road was cool.
Here's a pic of the car I took a little later after he went back home, crappy camera phone pic though... sorry.
