    Late model 5.0

    Was getting on the freeway the other day on a two-lane onramp and there was a new Mustang GT about 1 and a half lengths ahead of me in the other lane. The driver directly in front of me was driving Miss Daisy, so I pulled around into the other lane behind the Mustang. Just as I did, the Mustang driver nailed the throttle. Since I was already overtaking Miss Daisy, I was at about half throttle, and I was curious if my car could keep up. So rolled on to WOT in 1st.

    At the very beginning, the Mustang opened the gap by about 1/100th of a car length (very small) and then the acceleration was even up to 3rd gear. I'm not certain, but I think my 2-3 shift (which was pretty smooth) may have opened the gap a little bit more. I don't know whether the Mustang was an auto or not, but I shifted twice, and was unable to hear where/when the Mustang shifted. When I shifted into 3rd, his rpms just kept climbing (so I'm assuming he was in 3rd before I was). I had to let off the gas at this point in order to make the upcoming merge safely.

    If we had started side by side, he probably would have won by a nose.

    Way too many po-po out your way to play. I'd be driving Ms. Daisy myself.
