Default Billy Bob gets spanked

Yesterday was a beautiful day so I took a ride out into the countryside. I was minding my own business when Billy Bob in his Firebird and started throwing revs at me. We seemed to be the only two people around and I really didn't pay serious attention to him -but -shortly before the light turned green I pushed the loud button and opened the cutouts and turned off traction control. When the light turned green I hammered it HARD (for affect) spinning all the way through 3rd. By then I was at 120 and the Firebird a small spot in the mirror never to be seen again. I don't do this often but it sure is fun when the stars allign and the circumstances work (no traffic-out in the country - no LE and Billy Bob feeling brave).

I did see his eyes get big when I went from the Ti's to straight pipes. My car sounds like a Cup car at full song with the cutouts open. I'm sure out by Warrenton -where I was - the cattle and horses started stampeding.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw the title of the thread.


Nice Kevin, seems the "Gentleman's Cruiser" has a darker side.
