Stepped in 2 help a Mustang GT

Yeah you read that right! On my home from hanging out New Year's Eve and one exit away from getting off the freeway, I see some headlights coming up on me pretty fast. So I wait to see what they were and the first car to pass me was a C5 Vette followed by a newer model Mustang GT. So I say, "Ah what the hell" and sped up. I quickly passed the Mustang. When I got about 2 or 3 lengths behind the Vette, I see the rear end drop as he put it in a lower gear. So I decided to roll in 4th gear because I knew a race was soon approaching. By the time I get to his rear bumper he guns it. About a few seconds later I was about a half a car in front of him before we both slowed down due to some light traffic. When we made it through, the Vette was on my buttocks waiting for me to make a move. So I slowly ease into it to see if he wanted to go again. Well he stayed with me until I nailed it. By the time I got near the top of 4th he was easily 10 cars or so behind. Maybe it was closer, maybe it was farther, but he was a good ways behind. He flashed his lights and I decided to get off on the next exit. The Vette pulls up next to me and the guy sticks his arm out of the window and gives me a thumbs up and flashed his hazards. I guess flashing the hazards are for losses too. Maybe that's why the ricers do it so much. I flashed him with the high beams and gave a few honks and exitted the freeway. I'm not sure what happened to the Mustang. I just felt that he was being bullied so I felt the need to rescue him like an old lady's cat stuck in a tree.

That was the 3rd Vette that I have run and beat. The others were a C5 Z06 and a C6. Not sure what the C6 had, LS2 or LS3, but regardless he got the jump on me and I still pulled past him and got a car length or 2 in front of him before we let off (gm4life was behind us). All the Vette guys were cool about the runs though.

All I ask is that you guys be kind and help out the Mustang guys if you see that they're being pushed around. Well, that's if you're not doing the pushing.

If you're ever in Cali I can give you a hand. From the looks of your photo you should be able to stand on your own. What mods do you have?

Very impressive numbers, where exactly are you located at?

What mods are you planning to put on the goat?
