· Red line chaser
Rollin' with my wife and my friend comin' from a late dinner. Just conversating, enjoyin the empty highway at about 12:30 am, when I see a 91-93 GT body Mustang comin up pretty fast in the mirror. He slows beside me, we're both doin about 70, I'm tryin' to check out his ride, but he thinks I want to run, so he revs on me. I hear at least a header/flowmaster combo (sounded pretty damn good and heavy), see the 5" tach/shift light and some A pillar gauges, see he's lowered, and I see that he has a passenger also. I've always wondered how these mods would stack me up to a Mustang, but by the time I figure I've got nothin to lose, he drops it. Downshift from 5th to 3rd. He pulls about 2 cars ahead until when I reach 5500 in 3rd, then I start pullin on him. I shift at 7300 and pull even with him. In 4th, I pull about 3-4 cars ahead and I see his face as I'm pullin ahead. Needless to say he wasn't happy at all! I shift to 5th and pull about 7 cars ahead, then start tapping the brakes to signal "it's over", but he doesn't take no for an answer. After I slow to 60, he repeats the procedure AGAIN, with him and his passenger giving me the evil eye. He drops it first and takes off, I drop to 3rd and chase again. The same result, except I pull to about 135 mph and a good 8-10 car lead before hitting the "HAZARDS". This time, when I slow to 60, he overrevs his car and shoots by. I was impressed at my baby's performance even with two witnesses ...er... passengers. Score another one for the SR20.
