So 6 years ago i ended up spending 2 nights in jail after being clocked at 160mph in a 70mph zone. From that day on I stopped being stupid and screwing around on the highway. Ill play around every now and then with the low end torque but i leave top speed alone.
It seems like every other day that I have a ricer pull up to me on the highway and rev their 2 liter engines. I pretty much just laugh and keep driving normal because i know its not worth the gas and its definatley not worth going to jail.
Well today i was heading into town to meet a friend and i look in my rear view mirror and i see this mustang pretty much touching my rear bumper. So I smash the peddle down and let it shift into third for just a second to get up to 80 mph and i get in the slow lane to let him pass. I notice as he pulls up next to me that its the new 5.0 liter mustang. He slows down to match my speed and shows that he wants to race.
Normally like every other day i would just blow it off, but I really was interested to see how this one would end up. So i smash the pedal and off we go. We ran two different times from about 70 to 140ish. I am sad to report that the Mustang ate my lunch...TWICE... I mean it wasnt even close. I would hang with him for about 2 seconds and then he would start pulling me hard.
Now i should mention that his car was not stock. The very least he had was an aftermarket (extremely loud) exhaust. And he had a huge sticker across his front windshield that read 3 letter that i can not remember. But still even thought i have an A4 and it was a highway pull and i was running regular 87 gas. I still did not expect to get destroyed that bad.
I love my car and i have never thought it was not fast enough. But today for the first time i felt like i was driving a mini-van. I refuse to be beaten but a freaking Crustang. But maybe Ford finally got something right for once. Needless to say i drove away with my tail tucked between my legs and my head down.
Can someone please drive to Franklin, TN and show this guy what a GTO is capable of because mine is stock and i still cant believe i got spanked by a mustank
