Default Poor vette owner

im really more excited over the fact i didnt have some kid wanting to play in a civic and it was actually something that had some power lol.

about 20-30% of the time on my way into work, there is a guy that has a silver vette c6 non z06. he ALWAYS weaves in and out of traffic like its a damn race and twice ive watched him damn near clip a car to make space and get it. The other day he found the brake pedal when the truck infront of him had to stop quick and the vette was trying to fly up behind him and cut the guy off in the right lane. i swore the vette ate his hitch but didnt.

Anyhow, im leaving the light this morning (in front, no traffic) and who do i see behind me? mr racecar driver flying up through the pack. knowing hes coming i knock down to 3rd and proceed to wait for him to get near me. As he just clears traffic, i hear him drop a gear and that v8 start screamin (im about 30 yards in front). soon as i hear him drop a gear, i punch it. since he has the run on me, he gets his rear end up to my fender and then i start reeling him in quickly. He was at the bed and falling behind when he finally let out. 0 acknowledgement and would NOT come up or pass me after that.

good start to the morning i must say.

BTW, in case you all didnt know. i have to travel through Mexico each morning to get to work. Of course all this took place down there amungst the drug lords and Policia, hopefully he is not apart of the drug cartel or i may not make it through to tomorrow

Losing to a truck is one thing but a long bed on 37's must have hurt.

Awesome. I can't wait for the day I get to unleash 1100 ponies on some "poorvette" owner and wreck his day.

if it was a z06, id agree since i was just on the tow tune. the old race tune has walked a few mildly modded z06's before though (cam, stock head work done, dyno tuned). not by much but it got it done for a slow roll! (they wouldnt do a dig lol). this guy has an exhaust and thats about it.

YouTube video or it didn't happen

That must have been fun. Had a similar experience a few years back with some young guy showing off with his girl in the passenger seat of a convertible.

When he got close to me I mashed it and blew his doors off. Must have beat him by more then a truck length by the time I let out. Probably embarrassed him in from of his gril as I didn't see him after that. It was a good day
