Ran a snazzed up 350Z
I don't know if it was a nismo or what. It had a different larger spoiler on the back that was tastefully done and blended into the body lines of the car, painted the color of the car of course, not some tacked on piece of crap you see on alot of ricers. It had big flashy rims and stickers all over the back glass and on the back rear quarter panels. I passed him slowly on the way home going across the bay studying the car. I got about a 1/4 mile ahead of him and he zipped around a semi and got up behind me. Started to look like he wanted to play afterall.
He wasn't tailgating me, kept a respectable 3-4 car distance from me, pacing me at 80 while I coasted through the last of the traffic and hitting the last stretch of the bayway before getting back over land. I watched him shoot over to the right hand lane and nail it. I nailed it too, we were rolling at 80 when we got on it. He pulled to within 1 car length of me, then paced me for a short second, then I started to pull on him. As I began pulling away, he shot from the right lane back into the left lane behind me, and that's when I really started to walk away from him. I guess he got behind me to see if he could pull up on my bumper and tailgate me by drafting? Who knows.
I was doing 130 when I glanced down at the speedo and when I looked back up he was way way back. He must of let off the gas or hit the brake as I looked down at the speed because when I looked back up in the mirror he was gone. I slowed down to a painful 65 mph waiting for him to catch back up before I hit my offramp but he never did.
That was the first 350 Z to give me a scare. When he pulled on me from a little over 3 cars back to about a car back, I thought it was all over. The LS2 evidently had all it could stand because somewhere in the upper rpms of 3rd gear, I gradually walked away from him. Was a close call but a kill just the same. I would like to see what that car's top end was...
