Darn Civics...

So me and my girlfriend were just cruising around in Augusta, GA minding our own buisiness when this little white Honda Civic with an exhaust comes speeding up from behind me.
I was paying minimal attention to him (just watching him through side view mirror) and he gets even with me and puts on his brakes. I was like WTF and he has a car full of friends and they want to race. My girlfriend hates racing so I was reassuring her that I wasn't going to.
Anyways so he gets even with me and starts to rev his engine. Well I rev to satisfy him so he will leave me alone but he stays of course. We stop at a red light and he and his friends are watching me to see if I'm going to make a move. When the light turned green I stomped on the gas and left him...then I get to about 60 and slow down to keep with the speed limit.
And of course he comes back and lingers at my speed...it was starting to bother me so I leave him again this time going to about 80-85 and slow down and turn off onto another street not to see him again.

I would count that as a kill but I'm not sure if it was a worthy one...just a civic...

So that was my highlight of last night and thought I would share...hope it was entertaining lol XD

I dont waste my time with those anymore, usually do not street race. I slipped yesterday with a Bimmer though but hey, sometimes you just have to show someone up. Maybe your thread wont be locked like mine in the race section but who knows.

i havent had that yet with the Cobalt, but i remember ALL THE TIME when I had my V6 '90 Cav z24; stupid people with there .. yes.. civics and acura integras now THOSE were the worst, always wanting to race me, it was so damn annoying.

Getting caught street racin in Ontario is a big deal and could cost you A LOT, so I dont do it, but the cavalier would usually show the other car the door right off the line until about 80km.

but still nice kill :D
