Okay, the long drought has broken: where to begin...

Went out not MMOB tonight, I admit that. First I find a brand new Brazen Orange GTO (I must admit I like the color but the grey GTO tail cover doesn't go with it at all). He has TODAY dealer plates on the car from the same dealer where I bought mine. He's a six speed and ahead of me by a few cars at a light. He chirps the tires and I can see he's having fun with the car. I go far right, thinking he might head west on I-10, wrong, he's heading east, so I cut back across traffic and slide in right behind him. As we turn onto the feeder he nails it. Having gotten the jump on me he pulls about two car lengths ahead and then I swing out and reel him in. After I put a few cars on him and we hit triple digits , I slow down and he catches up. Cool guy, all excited. He says "Is that thing stock?" "Supercharger" "I was like WTF is keeping up with me?" Complimented each others rides. At least if you have to get beat on the day you buy the car it was another GTO.

Next was a Dodge pick up that thought he was bad. He got mashed on the access road, and then followed me around. He wouldn't get next to me at a light, but he wouldn't leave either. I did one U which he followed, and then a second to make sure it wasn't my imagination, and it wasn't, so I said you asked for it buddy and put about a freight train length on him and jumped on the interstate. He had barely reached the onramp as I disappeared over the hill. Weird folks out there.

Then there was a 2003/2004 Mustang Cobra, blue, same one I've seen several times out this way and not been able to race. I reved him and dropped into second and gave him a few lunges. He revved back but I think he had his girl with him, so I left him alone. I don't have any problem with a wave off for passengers who aren't into it. Another time.

Then there was some kind of weird rice mobile Fast and Furious wanna be. I U turned and chased him down, gave him a rev and some burned rubber at 30. He started following me too, on both sides of the access road. I came nearly to a complete stop twice and he still wouldn't pull up. So I just nailed it and left him some smoke to think over. Don't understand this following stuff. Am I some kind of scary dude or something?

Then I saw another Cobra go by the other way so I hang a U and zoom after them, getting caught at a light. I launch from the light pretty spiritedly hoping to catch him at the next one, but he's long gone and the light turns red, so I stop. Open lane on my left, and a semi on my right, and I see a SRT-4 coming fast, swing out and pull up on my left. Comes over pretty close to me and yells something. I turn down the tunes and look over and its a beautiful girl, long dark hair, waif like, dazzling smile. Only problem is she's like half my age. We chit chat a little - I'm nice to her, but that's about it. But I must admit some lecherous thoughts did pass through my head. We launched a little off the light together, laughed and waved, about to go our own ways. Really pretty fun. That's when:

The 3000 GT from hell shows up. Zooming through traffic he comes up on my right trying for a high speed fly by, I nailed it and he didn't even get a nose on me, as I hit it I heard her yell "Get him!" I put a few lengths on him and stopped for a light. He woudln't pull up next to me but I could hear strange sounds from under his hood. I'm not new to cars but I've never heard anything like this. Can't even describe it. Maybe something was wrong? I don't know. Anyway, I lit out of there for all she was worth and as soon as I had about a car length on him I mashed it to the floor, lighting up those bald stockers on my rear end one more time. He dropped back and had better manners from then on. Hope I see that SRT-4 again sometime. She was pretty cool.

Then there was the brand new 760Li with 20 inch spinners. I just about laughed my ass off when I saw this. I gave him a heavy rev as I passed and he got on my ass. A Ford pick up blew past me when the road opened up and I nailed it, left the BMW in the dirt and caught the Ford, passed him and stopped at the light up ahead. He rolled up (the truck) and two guys inside saying "Man, that thing just blew my doors off." I tell him its supercharged when I notice the BMW is in my lane about 3 inches from my bumper. The light turns and I launch hard, giving him some smoke and pull about 3 or 4 car lengths on him and shut it down. I brake and let him catch up, nailing it each time he guts to my bumper. He eventually starts to give up, then I hit my hazards and hear he comes (sometimes you have to stir the pot). I let him get almost right next to me and leave him again, brake and pull into the center turn lane. Dude pulls up right next to me in the traffic lane, stopped. I was half expecting to get threatened with a gun or something but instead its this arab looking guy with a wad of cash in his hand. He's pretty freaking agitated and he says, "Race you right now for $10,000 cash." I was like, is this guy stupid or what? So I said, lets go. He then says, "$10,000 cash right now, I have a twin turbo Supra." The guys in the Ford are right behind him, stopped, while other traffic is passing them all. I kind of felt the Ford guys were there as back up in case something unfriendly happened. I tell the guy, "Not for $10,000" and he looks like this is some kind of triumph or something. I say for fun and he says no way and gives me this smirk. I say, "Still doesn't change the fact that you got dusted. See you round." I laid rubber as I did the turn and gave the guys in the Ford a thumbs up as I went past.

Who has the fastest GTO in Houston? Interested in racing this guy? I'll set up. Ha, I ought to get RA7s car.... Muuuhahahahahahahaha....

And to top it all off, I smashed me head into the roof getting out of the car (I'm 6'1" barefoot and for some reason about half the time I bang my head getting out of this damn car...). Quite a night.

I know. it's the third time with that particular guy. Maybe he's just not into it?

Looked up that 760 - V-12, about 440 HP/TQ, and 110K cost.

the $10,000 cash proposition was the only way he could "win." or save face. he lost. and his ego could not stand it. so he flashed a cash "dare" to come off as having a larger dick. but he still lost. he did not triumph. and notice he was in a BMW. look at how he behaved: arrogant, boastful, superior --even though he lost.

Should of asked him to flash the cash right then. If not tell him to get bent.


I'd be looking a friend or shop with an 8 to-low 9 second "ringer" to have on speed dial. If you even run into that guy again say yeah it's a go...You have to get your other car. Split your winnings.

I guess you need to start packing a bundle of Monopoly money in your console. It's probably appropriate currency for a bone head like that.

Wonder how he’d react if you gave him a good Sutherland “Odd Ball” look, held up the bundle while saying “why don’t we just double that”

wow interesting night to say the least!! Whats up with that 10k crap? yeah i'll just whip out 10 grand like it aint no thang. Betting an outrageous sum of money and thinking you won when the other person calls you on your cracksmoking is just plain retarded.

as i said, the 10grand thing is a saving-face one-upmanship BS gesture. he lost and couldn't stand it. so he could only come back with "i have more money than you" --the a$$ end of BMW owners.

I definitley wouldn't take up a 10G offer without seeing it first, a twin turbo supra could be anything from sort of fast to just about unbeatable.

When I worked at a restraunt here in Raleigh a guy from horsepowerjunkies.com came in with his Supra- I believe he said 800 at the wheels?

But hey if you arn't gonna take that sweet girl in the Neon you can send her right my way :pimp:

I saw a video on google the other day of the fast stuff in Houston. If its the Supra Im thinking of its a good thing you didnt try to race.

Look around for some Houston street racing on google and see if its the same car.


EDIT- heres the vids: http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=houston+street+racing

Thanks for the link. That's not him. Never saw his Supra. There is a black one out this way though that I wrote up here in the Kill Section awhile back. Maybe that's him. Anyone running faster than me want to buy in for 5K? We each put up half the cash and split the winnings?

Love the vids. That's like two years ago now. Wish they posted some of their times. Hard to tell how fast a car is really going from the vid.

Exactly.

And he had the cash in hand. He flashed the wad and fanned it. At least 50 hundred dollar bills (so I believe him that it was an even hundred). I know he's got loads of cash and if he does have a Supra it's probably fast as hell (speed after all is a function of money and i'm limited...).

However, I'm not sure he can drive for shit, considering how he did in the 760. And he's obviously a hot head. I'd get him riled up real good before we did the run. Hopefully he'd be foaming at the mouth so bad he'd mis-shift.

Anyway,

LR
