Yesterday I was driving home from work. A Mustang GT was nearby and I saw him accelerating pretty good. The right lane opened up and he took off into it and I followed. "Finally!", I thought, "someone I can race!".

We pulled up to the light with him at the front of the light and me right behind him. Given his earlier acceleration I figured he'd be quick off the line, so I was revving and ready at the light.

Light goes green and off we....... don't go! He barely got moving and I backed off quickly not to hit him <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>. Then he starts picking up a bit (I kept my revs high). I got past the car to my left and then put the pedal down. He finally catches on as I start to pass him.

He finally hits the gas and we're off. Since I had gotten up in the high revs I managed to stay with him for a while and he started to pull away a bit (go figure <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>). Then I noticed flashing lights ahead and I backed right off.... took him several seconds more to notice and he slowed down so I caught back up to him.

Alas, hit traffic again and never got a 2nd chance. Not a kill, but a fun race anyway. Sure makes em nervous when they get passed by a Hyundai <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>. Hadn't had a race in a while, so it was nice to just get a good run in.
