JasonA Posted January 24, 2004 Report Share Posted January 24, 2004 Was minding my own business tonight when the stop light ahead turned red. I was in the left lane -- my left hand turn was about 1/2 mile after the light. This car approached fast behind and jumped into the right lane. I quickly slowed down to let it get ahead so I could see what it was. Looked like a Bimmer in the rear view but turned out to be an LS. It wasn't brand new...not sure what year it was. Also wasn't sure about the engine. It had dual exhaust, but I think even the V-6 models had that. I couldn't see over to the right side of the car to see if it had the V-8 logo. Oh well..pulled up to the light next to the older, straw hat wearing retiree (according to the license plate). Light turns green and I hesitate a bit to see if he was gonna run. He did and then I did. The tires gave a squeak and I dug all the way into the throttle and pulled slowly on him. Half way into 2nd gear (which is about 60 mph; speed limit 55), I let off and applied the brakes for my turn. He continued to charge ahead and finally flew past. My wife gave me a hard time for racing an old guy. I said I never pick the races, but I'll certainly join one if I know it'll be quick and easy.
