Okay, so C5 convertible tails me about a car length behind wanting to play. I don't bit. I'm a newbie GTO driver still feeling my way. I've had my goat for about 3 weeks.
He tears out of the lane down the right side and drops to cruise speed. I drop out of my lane and in behind him about a car length waiting for him to run. First I already knew that was a no no given how closely matched these two cars are but I wanted to just have fun anyway.
He doesn't bite so I return the favor and do my own fly by.
I catch a light up down the road as the vette was almost out of sight back there. I roll up to the front line next to a Acura TL (new one) he wants to play but I don't bite to hard but I do a rather firm launch from the light anyway.
Lo and behold the vette dude sneak attacks and jumps out from behind a few cars and in behind me. Well given that the TL was an easy pull that leaves a big space for the C5 to just pass through. One moment I just pulling easy on the TL the next moment the C5 grabs the opening and blazes by and I'm now trying to switch the powerband for the corvette instead. I'm caugh off guard then fumble my gears and blow the redline.
C5 dude pulls the breaks and gives me the head shake. LOL. I just let it go. No use in explaining he scaredy cat move.
Plus I is humid as all out doors here. I had my windows up and the AC blowing big time.
Oh... I did take down a Mach 1 'Stang and a (yes I admit it) a Chrysler 300 that kept bothering me. It wasn't even a 300C but the guy thought he had the goods so I let him have it.
