So, I'm sitting at a stoplight on a merging road in the bustling metropolis that is McHenry, IL, with my wife at my side, when a four-door Saturn pulls along side, but a little behind. This thing was ALL decked out, sweet fartcan exhaust, three-foot transformer-inspired alumaspoiler, graphics, and I'm sure the $2000 stereo in a $1000 car option.
So, not really anticipating any kind of race, I take an easy 1-2 shift and that Saturn just LAUNCHED from the start. He was taking me to about 15 mph or so, but I grasped my Borders coffee tightly in my right hand and dropped my foot on the accelerator, and the mighty torque gods unleashed their fury on the unsuspecting victim beside me. Mwahahahaha!!!
My wife dutifully hit the hazards to signify the end of the race, (not necessary, but appreciated.) and we rode home, satisfied with our conquest of the mighty Saturn sedan. I dare all Festiva owners, step up to the challenge before you...
Hope this was at least a little entertaining ( It really happened...)
