Can't claim this as a honest kill....but I did give the guy something to lose sleep over....:biggrin: So I was on my way to Papa Lou's after work....he called and asked me to leave my GN with him for a couple days so he can look it over...which is a good thing...cuz he's very generous around Christmas season and it's started earlier this year....can't wait to see what surprises I get...:biggrin: Papa Lou is the best Santa ever! Anyway... As I cruise down Edinger in the oposite direction from where I killed that AMG...I end up cruising past this nice looking blacked out 2011 Grand Sport Vette...but as I get a look across his hood....he's got a magnacharger poking through it... He looked over at me as I cruised past...we were doing about 60mph and I give him a nod and evil grin....he just stayed expressionless. Not a good time for a race due to traffic, so I figure I'm outa luck. Further up as I move into the left turn lanes onto Jamboree and pull up to the line at the red...he comes along side on my left in the inner turn lane....that's when I snapped this pic.... When the light turned green, we stayed side-by-side through the turn and as we straightened out and he shifted into 2nd...I nailed it... ...and he barely tried to stay with me One more light up ahead and we are along side each other again. As he pulls up, his window is down and so is mine: Me: Man I thought you were gonna run me. Him: [with a grouchy look] Well you gotta give me a warning. Me: Going from a roll? I gotta warn you? No way! That's your territory....no warnings required! [laughing] Him: [no smile...just a hurt look on his face] Me: So what's this....like a ZR-1? Him: Makes the same power as a ZR-1... Me: Ya...I'm probably making about 500 at the crank Him: [nodding...but still no smile...no comment...clearly this guy is an Vette elitist...] Him: From a stop I'll just sit and spin...and my tires are bald in the middle... Me: I'm on street tires and can't hook either....so we're even... Him: [nodding...but still no smile...no comment...probably wondering to himself why he's making excuses for his pending loss...he could tell I was getting a kick out of it...] The light is going to turn green any minute so I get ready...I know he's gonna try to show me what's what this time... This is a good straight run onto the toll road.....probably about an 1/8 mile before it narrows to one lane for the toll road merge... Then just as we get the green...some dumb broad turns right from the cross street in front of us and goes straight to his lane We both accelerate gingerly across the intersection and I keep him on my door so I keep my lane...he slows a little and as he dropped in behind me and as I passed the lady, from about 30mph I nail it and he's all in too...as he passes her he moves back to the left lane...I'm still kicking sideways a little and as I hook I gradually put 2-3 lengths on him....this is going better than I thought...we're running out of 2 lanes...aint no way he'll catch me before the merge so I shut it down as we hit the gradual right bend onto the toll road... Traffic on the toll road was light....but he'd had enough of the Buick and I'm not one to wag around lanes to lane freeway racing....so we just cruised our seperate ways from that point. Hoping I see this guy again and can get a clean line-up with him...I'm sure I can take him on the distance of a 1/4 mile, but beyond that....if he's making ZR-1 power....he'll blow past me.
