    Why do ricers even bother?

    I want in my 1968 Camaro RS 327. I was takin it out for the normal sunday cruise. As I'm cruising with my son around town, a 1994 Toyota Paseo pulls up behind me. It is red, with Autozone spinning hub caps, a black car bra, and orange window tint. I'm already laughing at the car thinking, why would somebody turn their car this ugly. I look back at the light for it to turn green. There are 3 or 4 mexicans in the car, and the driver revs the engine at me! You've got to be kidding me! Right when the light turned green, i put the throttle about 50% down. I did about a 30 foot burnout and let off and coasted. There was smoke everywhere! I turned around and noticed that he wasnt behind me, so i slow down to look back and see if everything is okay. The guy was scared to drive through the smoke. So we get to the next light and was like, if you didnt do a burnout, i would have killed you.

    This dipsh*t I ran into the other day at a friends turned out to be a guy I blew the doors off of about 6 months ago. He had a red 98 RS Camaro with a GD V6 for crying out loud!

    I remember posting about this weird kill. I was coming out of town when a 98-02 looking Camaro charged up on me, cutting someone off at a light to get behind me. It was nighttime, and I figured they must have something done to it to even think they had a chance, b/c you can hear my car coming from a long way, and it has a huge cam in it, and absolutely reverberates at stoplights off nearby cars.

    Anyway, I roll out about 10 mph, rip'em to redline in first, granny shifted into second and laid down another 50 ft of rubber, with the ass end fishtailing and smoke BOILING off the tires. I pull him easily, so I let off and only take the next curve at about 90 mph, thinking that was the end of his aspirations.

    Then the bastard flys up on me after I come out of the curve, like he never let off. We go up to a light, proceed across the light, and there is nothing but a 2 mile straight away, so I putter up to about 25 mph with it in second, waiting for him to try and pass me, and this f*cker turns into a gas station!!

    Anyway, he clearly remembered that night when I talked to him, he had a buddy with him that said he thought my car was a V6 and that he should be able to take me.

    He told me that he can drive in curves and that was how he "pulled on me then." I hated to tell him that I let off after I put a bus length on him spinning.

    I had some dumbass teenager in a Mustang GT try to race my Evo in the rain............................


    Honestly, I didn't even go for it, I just let him think he was racing me and winning, a 14 second car isnt worth the gas or meth.

    Didn't the Paseo come from the factory with around 87 - 90 HP at the crank? Seriously? I seem to recall reading the Motor Trend list of car times and specs many years ago and am pretty sure it was well under 100!

    To think that guy in his Paseo was getting ready to run a car with 4+ times more horsepower is hilarious! That would be the equivalent of running a stock LS1 against a 1,200 - 1,300 HP machine! HAHA!

    They made RS's past 97.

    I think some do it to watch us hit it. I messed with a Z06 like that yesterday just to see him hit it. Later that day a civic did that to me. He pulled in and told me hop I didn't take offense he just wanted to see me hit it because he wanted to hurry and get his chevelle's motor built.
