    Whats with these civic guys.

    Last night as I'm heading to a friends house I pull up behind a green civic. He has the whole "street glow" thing going on. I slowly pass him and merge back into the right lane. He then decides to speed up and shoot by me. He gets in the left turn lane and I move from the right lane to the left lane for the stop light. I had no intentions on racing him b/c I had my GF with me and she hates it when I drive fast, but he swerves from the turn lane right behind me. there was a truck to the right, so I speed up and get over. He pulls up next to me and starts revving up. So we went and I just drove away from him.

    Its hard to tell if these guys just think their cars are fast, or if he just wanted to see what I could do. Frankly I'm tired of it. It seems like every day I get harassed by a civic. Does this happen to everyone or is it just me.

    Well they don't seem to like to mess with me. I drive home from work along the same road as my roommate. He comes home every night talking about how he raced 3 civics and an integra in his 97 grand am GT....but no one ever wants to play when I'm driving my Rex

    Its an everyday thing for me. At first it was fun, now its just annoying. 99.9 % of civics don't stand a chance, but they drive around like they're the sh$t.

    Happens all the time, and not just Civics. Del Sols and Accords too. But it does seem to be just Hondas.

    Yeah, when I first got my car last year, Hondas would mess with me, but now they won't even look in my direction...
