Scion, not sure which one

Not sure what the Scion name is of the little two door that kind of looks like the first gen Saturns of the 90's, but anyways, I was coming home from work today, merged out onto the interstate, and I see this little car come flying up behind me to my left in the fast lane.

He got about a half car in front of me, just enough for me to see his giant fat obnoxious fart can buzzing away, and that was enough for me, I punched it. We were going right at 80 when I took off, I was supprised to see he partially (and I use the term partially loosely) hung with me to 95-100, then I watched the road for a few seconds, making sure there were no cars ahead, next thing I know, I'm running 120, I quickly glance in the rearview to see where he's at, and he's so far back then he just kind of blended in with all the traffic behind me and I wasn't even sure which one was him, lol.

It either petered out around 100 or he just gave up once he found out he wasn't running against a G5, G6, Sunfire, or God knows what else these riceboys mistake our cars for. I know it's not a kill to hang on my mantle, but it's a notch in the belt just the same.

XB is a box, XA is just plain hideous and I doubt you would even bother looking at it twice. The TC is sporty looking and probably what you ran. Nice first car;however, not fast.

I ran a TC on the way out to Cali with my Cavalier. Even with over 500 lbs of junk in the Cavalier I beat him to my rev limiter, 108-110. If he didn't have the TRD supercharger he just wanted to se you fly.


By the way Dusty, I ran across the bridge to Mobile that you top end run on, on my way to Cali. You got guts. Lots of guts.

It’s just so tempting when you’re on top of the bridge and there’s nobody around. I love coming down off that bad boy.

Last time I checked, this is a GTO forum.

That's probably the only place on earth outside of an enclosed track where I feel safe enough to do something like that. When I got my goat last summer, it took a dozen trips back and forth across the bay before I finally realized how safe it was as far as no cops being able to get you, nobody being able to merge on and pull out in front of you, and no worries of wildlife way up there (deer, gators, etc.). The ONLY thing I fear on that stretch at that speed is...... a semi truck's retread.
