Well, I was cruising on a 3 lane street on the far left lane behind some slow cars when a van that looked something like this
came up behind me and passed me. He started cutting people off trying to get ahead of everyone. He is already a good half block ahead of me. I change to the middle lane and spotted an opening in the right lane as the car in that lane was signaling to make a right hand turn. As soon as the car made the turn, I got over to the right lane and caught up to the driver in the van as he was waiting at the stoplight. He was the first driver on the right with me right behind him.
As soon as I caught up to him, the light turns green. As I knew he would, he guns it, with me in neutral going into 2nd. I pass all the cars on the left and switch over to the middle lane. The 3 lane road splits off at the end of the block with the right lane going right (90 degree turn) and the other 2 lanes going left. I am about a car length behind the van in the middle lane, waiting to see what he does. He is going way too fast to be turning right. As we approached the turns, we both were doing about 60 mph, the van swerves from the right lane, all the way to the left and makes the turn. I change to 3rd and begin persuit. The left turn was almost a 90 degree curve, and I accidently gassed it too much when I saw that I was losing some ground to him, and understeered quite a bit. I regain control 80% through the turn while the van gained about 2-3 cars. We come up on another left turn curve, this time the turn was wider. He goes and swerves back into the right lane (the one I am on) and swerves back to the left lane when he enters the turn. This time I am right behind him, but still on the right lane, not even dare passing him for fear of him crashing into me.
After completing the left turn, the road straightens briefly, and I see that the van is accelerating to about 70 mph. Once again, I am right behind him, not passing him. I ease off the gas a bit, because I thought he was going way too fast for the right hand turn. He is in the far left lane, with me still in the right lane, and swerves to the right lane once he enters the turn. The guy almost loses it and barely avoids toppling the van over. As I see him regain control, I get right behind him again. The road once again straightens out briefly, and he switches over to the left lane to prepare for the next turn coming up on the right.
I am still on the right lane. There was a car in the left lane blocking him, so he cuts him off and gets back into the left lane. Once again, he swerves back to the right lane while entering the turn, with me right behind him. He finishes the turn with him ending up in the left lane and with me still in the right lane. Another few cars were on the left lane, and he cuts back into the right lane while coming up to a red light.
The guy slants his car to the left so that I could see him clearly in the big side view mirror while he was laughing his a$$ off As soon as he saw me make eye contact with him, he gave me a thumbs up and still kept laughing I wasn't expecting it, and was surprised when he gave me the thumbs up sign, but I gave him back a and started laughing too. This guy was crazy doing 50+ mph turns in a van like that. The van still had dealer plates on it too As soon as the light turned green he accelerated quickly, but didn't gun it. He, once again, started cutting people off while I stayed behind and lost him in the traffic.
That was fun. Even though I could've passed him at almost any time, I didn't. I just didn't trust the guy allowing me to pass, especially if he was concentrating on the road so much. A lil car like mine would easily be squished if he didn't see me at his side.
