The is the second part of this weird old 1.8. Driving to work a few weeks ago I'm sitting at the light in a left lane. I have my windows down and I hear this other exhaust so I look over. There is this OLD VW w/ an aftermarket exhaust. I think nothing of it and when the light turns green I go w/ traffic. The VW has to slow down because the people in his lane are making a right and I pass him like I normally drive. I start going up this hill and turn my blinkers to change into the right lane as normal. There's NO cars in the right lane and I'm cruising around 45mph in a 35mph up a hill. Well I look in my rear view mirror and see the VW speeding up behind me? I have no idea what he's trying to do so I start speeding up w/ OUT changing gears but I'm already in 3rd. The VW gets into the left lane and probably doing 70mph+ ... I see a Jeep in the left lane and I'm probably 1.5 cars behind and right of the Jeep. I wondered to myself if the VW would be stupid enough to cut infront of me? Well as typical "rice" boys he does and as he cuts infront of me w/ maybe 5ft of room ... if he touched my car I would have beat him ... well as he "tires" to show off he changes gears and blows FIRE out of his exhaust ... I thought it was cool. Well he tries to keep going but in less than 3 secs he trapped in taffic again. I'm right behind him and I give him the look of "You're an idiot!"
Well the second part was yesterday driving home from work. I'm driving like I normally do in this one section which is 5-7K rpm up a hill because after sitting in traffic for 20 minutes gets me impatient. Well suddenly I notice an old VW 1.8 get right behind me going up this hill. I looked like the guy from a few weeks ago who tried to prove something. Well so I slow down and this guy just sits in my blind spot. However what I heard was this strange winning sound from his engine bay ... turbo charger, supercharger, or broken car. Well I'm waiting for a clearing or light but no luck. I on purposely slow down even more and look over at him and he doesn't even look at me.
What could an 1.8 have in the engine that caused the winning sound? Boy "ricer" didn't wanna go when I was ready? I'm sure I'll see him around one day at a light. I don't care what his 1/4 mile time is because a "street race" is <5 seconds. He wants to play I will too.
