It was a quick little run but still fun. My girlfriend and I just finished eating dinner and as I was leaving the parking structure I heard a deep grumble pass me by. It was a brand new black V8 mustang... the thing looked menacing. We both pull out of the structure and he takes off fast, I didn't bite yet because I was hoping to catch the light up ahead and sure enough we did.
So we stop at the light but unfortunately I had to line up behind him because there's an older camaro next to him. The light is about to turn green and I knew the mustang was gonna take off seeing how he bolted from the parking structure. Light turns green and I do a 70% launch to prevent hitting the mustang... the camaro is next to me through first and the mustang is a car ahead and cuts into the camaro's lane. I shift to second and start to pull away from the camaro and the mustang is still a car ahead. I shift to third and the camaro is way back there now (maybe he gave up) and the mustang starts putting more distance on me. This road turns into an onramp so we end up going different directions, he speeds off towards the south exit and I ended up going north.
I was honestly expecting the mustang to start pulling on me much sooner but I was able to hold my ground until about 70mph when it seemed as if he started to pull on me. I'm sure if I was at the line next to him I could have had the lead for a while but he'd end up passing me easily as we got up to speed. The camaro had no chance... I don't know my domestics well, but it was the older boxy camaro. It didn't have much in it.
