    As others have said, you're not alone in this. Around here the WRX and STi are the target cars. Muscle cars are owned by *******s and old people in my area, nobody really cares or pays attention to them, but EVERYONE has their eye on the Subaru.

    At least twice a week I get the typical asshat who just won't leave me alone. Just last week I had a Nissan SE-R and a Honda Accord trying to hassle me. The odd thing about it is I work nights, so I only see people either late in the evening, 0100-0200 (lunch), or early in the morning rush hour. Typically I get messed with in the 0100-0200 range. It can be very annoying, but it is also pretty easy to ignore. And honestly, I think ignoring them pisses them off more than losing any race would.

    Just mind your own business, and do your thing. If they're driving unsafe around you, get off the road for a little bit, and then resume. You're never in too much of a hurry to be safe, especially when your family is involved.

    I guess this is the good thing about having some gray hair..I don't get harassed very often. I also drive smoothly, use turn signals, and don't really cruise at more than 6-8 over the limit on a regular basis.

    There is a guy in an SRT-4 that used to pop off his BOV at me whenever he'd pass me going the other direction in the morning. I just took it as a "Hi! I have a turbo, too!"

    Then there's the STI that's in the business park nearby, that tried to zoom away from me at high speed on a 45mph road. I foolishly stayed with him, out of curiosity. Stupidity on my part; a ticket for 80 or whatever in a 45 zone would be a bad move for me.

    Diesel trucks are the worst for me. I've had at least 4 that wanted to have a go from a light . Only other cars that tried was a kid in a riced out Saturn and some guy in a Mustang.. He was tailing me in the rain down a curvy road so I planted the pedal coming out of a 25MPH corner. I looked back and he was backwards in the middle of the road.

    i havent had the problem for a while until i started driving up to see my friend near a city, all highway. had a stock srt 4 pull up near me and kept doing pulls til they would get about 20 yards and slam on the brakes to avoid hitting the car in front of them. luckily i had the next exit. had a really mean sound mazdaspeed 3 near me doing pulls next to me. saw a blob eye and made me happy, caught up to it to cruise next to him at 60 then noticed it was slammed, had a roof rack with no attachments guessing just for looks, and monster energy stickers all over the rear window, then pulled up next to him just to crusie, he floored it and weaved in and out a few cars while i facepalmed and watched him fly under the bridge where i got my speeding ticket. sadly he didnt get pulled over

    Happens all the time here in OKC. Just yesterday some high school kid in a pretty nice mustang gt was revving up and giving me the evil eye. Dude, I'm in the left turn lane! I just gave him a quick spool and he hung his head, rolled up his window, and became distracted by something in his car. Other people can and will drive like idiots, just don't let it get the best of you.

    I have also noticed this problem. I have experienced it more in my Trans am, I guess this because its obviously modified out the ass. Although, there have been a couple ocassions in my sleeper wrx where people would do this. There are two guys that are always trying to get me to do something. I only see them every now and then. One drives a civic SI and he other is a camaro SS.

    I like a good stoplight to stoplight or a 0-60 run every now and again but it doesn't happen all that often. Maybe because it tends to be during heavier traffic and don't have that long a drive.
    I did get a lot more challenges in my Eclipse and ALL THE TIME on my CBR. That was always really annoying because it would mostly happen on the freeway.
