    SRT Charger on the highway.

    I live in a small town, so I'm on may way to Wal-Mart, 60 miles away, to finish shopping. Fairly nice day out, and I'm cruising on the interstate at 79 mph, and I just passed a car and got back into the right lane. Then all of a sudden from behind the car I just passed a Charger pulls out and is gaining quickly, so I'm watching him in the mirror, and before I realize it he is at wot and is 1-2 cars back and I stomp it to the floor. Well he goes by, must be doing a 100 or better. So he has a good lead for a little while, but after a 1/4 mile or so I'm gaining ground and catching him. I'm about 4 cars back doing 135, and blue smoke starts coming out his car. It got so bad you couldn't see the back of his car anymore. I start letting off because I didn't want engine parts or oil to start getting on my car or tires at that speed.
    We both slowed down some, but I quickly caught up to him and pulled beside him and gave him a thumbs up, and wanted to see if he wanted to go from the same speed, not a flyby headstart, but he wouldn't go again. Maybe he wanted his car to stay together until he got to where he was going. I sure hope he checks his oil, it has to need some.

    The Charger was a black SRT8 with an early 40 year old couple. It was fun, but I wish he would've went from a same speed roll. My mods are in sig.

    You would have had him anyway w/ your mods. Too bad he "smoked" it! Weird.

    I had that happen to me in my Supra on a high speed run but with white smoke. Turns out it was a pinhole leak in the radiator that ONLY exposed itself under those triple digit conditions and held together for 75-100miles until I got to the dealer for a diagnosis.

    not if he would have posted it on chargerforums.com. i know mceasar would be in there bringing car and driver times and whatnot and changing the subject to whatever he feels like arguing about at the time.

    It did bother me, made me think about the 2 chargers doing the conventional vs syntec commercial, with all the parts and fluids coming out of the bottom end. And I doubt that I'll get another shot at him, he was from Alberta, Canada.
