Three points to this story:
1) Cougars are slow...
2) Street Racing is Dangerous...
3) Gravel is Bad...


SO, I'm on my way to pick up my homeboy Christams Night and this Cougar does a fly-by on me so I punch it to keep up. We hit up a light and I smoked him off the line and he couldnt' keep up. Poor, slow, V6. I shut it down at about 60 and the dumbass does another fly-by so I speed up and we're driving full blast going about a hundred. I know, I know, stupid.

Im in the right lane and he's in the left lane. We come to a right turn and me being a good driver I break before the turn, downshift and accelerate through the turn. The driver of the Cougar was not as smart. After going full throttle into the turn he lets off of the gas and hits the brakes mid turn. Needless to say his heavy-assed, poor suspension car, throws its ass out on the loose gravel from the recent snow storm. He ends up locking up his brakes in a 90 degree power slide. He was right next to me and his headlights were pointing at my driver's door while doing a 100 mph sideways! We were at an intersection so there was a break in the center median. Its one of the bulit up brick mound medians. He ended up riding the median down on his undercarriage, like he was doing a rail grind on a skateboard. He went about 20 feet down, going over a no-U turn sign and taking chunks of brick and concrete with him. I looked in my side view mirror and saw him get out of the car and throw his hat on the ground. He was not injured so I bounced out really freaking quickly. I smoked like four cigarettes within the next few minutes and could barely drive. I'm sure his car was close to being totalled. I feel bad that I somewhat caused the wreck, but he was flexing on me and I never back down. Bad drivers should not drive fast!


Anyways...I hope you all learned a valuable lesson form this story. Years worth of heartache can be caused by one small pissing contest. It could've easily been me that wrecked, but I'm glad it wasn't. Keep the racing on the track.

Peace out.

LMFAO!!!!!!!!! Nice kill man! Yes, new cougars DO suck! Good driving! Sounds like what happened to me back in 1998 I was racing a Accord down eastern and I pulled ahead of him in my 240sx like he was nothing, then I Look into my rear view to see him flashing at me, and look back to see a nice big truck comming onto the street, so I slow down, he flyes by and waves to me like he won, barley misses the truck and looses control does a 160 on the other side of the road and ends up busting a fire hidrent and looses two tires! So I was like OHHH SH!T I pulled over to see if he was allright. He was fine but looked like he was a tad pissed of, I would be too dammit. So he asked me if his car was messed up, I said "Your passangers side door is bent up and you lost your Drivers side front and back tires cuz your on a curb. He said ok just leave I will just tell them some asshole cut in front of me and we werent racing. So I called the cops and left. The next month later I saw him with his car back and he was perfectly fine but he learned a lesson, Street racing is bad! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

It was on Garden of the Gods going West, right before you get to 30th st and the big MCI Building. It's my old hood (Coronado '96) so I knew the streets well. Yeah I am glad he didn't take both of us out. We wouldn't have been able to meet up!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
