SRT8 Challenger

I was heading home from work tonight and was on a nice divided 4 lane. Traffic was very light.

I could see an Orange car in the distance and as I got close to it I realized it was a Challenger. When I got real close I saw the SRT8 badges.

I started to pass and this guy, he was about 60-65 as my guess, points at my car and shakes his head and pinches his nose.

I clicked it down into drive so I had one less gear to drop. I waved and stepped down to about half throttle. He nailed it and quickly pulled even.

I mashed the gas which stopped his pull with him about a half car length ahead at about 80. By 100 I had pulled about a car and a half on him and at 120 where I let off I had about 4 or 5 cars on him.

He came flying past me giving me the finger. I just waved again.

I know that's not typical of most of the SRT8 people I've met. I'm really glad I pounded him to put him in his place. There really isn't any reason to be like that.

He never let up and I didn't see him again.

2002 Z28 so it was only a 7 year old car.

I still haven't replaced the Vette so I'm down to just two cars, Z28 and the Cavalier.

This weekend should be the weekend for an addition to the fleet again. I think it's going to suprise everyone.

I hate people like that, but it makes the win that much more glorious. I thought I'd be a fan of that car, but someone down the block has an orange one and it's just to much like a big tank...doesn't do it for me. The Charger is even worse IMO.
