Ritalin Version: We met, we played, he lost. Not by much though.

Details: Me n Ethyl driving through Picher Oklahoma, just out of Miami. We wuz MMOB, looking for big holes to fill. All of a sudden in the corner of my eye I saw him, streakin around from behind me at a light. I hollered out at Ethyl, "Don't Look Ethyl!!!" but it wuz too late, she done been lit by them purty headlights. There he was, brand new C6. We goofed around a little, both nervous about being out in the open and knowing what wuz gonna happen, Ethyl snarled.

We sorta half assed it down the boulevard, him trying to get me to give it up. Cute girl in the passenger seat, laughing and waving. We finally got lined up at a light. The vid pretty much tells the story but for you photo analysts out there notice his right front fender stays dead even through second and then falls off in third. He doesn't pass me until after the needle on the tach, that's the one on the left, falls off. Got to say he pushed us harder than pretty much everything I've run cept maybe the bikes. I wasn't watching him but figure he was about a half car to a car back in third when I let off. With the gears he would have murdered me on the top. I would have killed him from the dig but the intersection had lots of loose gravel and some moisture so we rolled through it before hitting it.

The little cutie was all excited, I bet he has a good night tonight.

Beautiful. Those C6's are fast cars.

When are you going to break down and get a multi-camera system so we can live vicariously through you?

That they are. A C-6 has been the only thing to beat me so far in a real run.

My best was acing a guy in a Carerra who gave me the thumbs up and mouthed something like "gawd [email protected] that thing is fast!"

Hehehe, winking at the girls is what it is all about. I meant I bet the guy driving had a great night. The young lady seemed quite animated/excited.

Very nice, I just love a close race. The closer the cars are matched the better.

Great kill and documentation!

Always a pleasure reading of your exploits.

BTW, you really need use "The Streak" as a sound-track for some of these vids! :D
