Thumbs up "You Must Have Put A Lot of Work Into That"

So I went out and had a little bit of fun. Was looking to see what FRESH has in her now and I must say I am very impressed.

Three races:

#1 Trailblazer SS (Year Unknown) - Larger, SEXY rims, lowered, heard aggressive exhaust note. Other than that, mods are unknown.

Cruising from 55 - HE honked it off. Both went hard. Started to pull SLIGHTLY ahead (had a headlight on him LOL) then we remained that way until we stopped around 110ish, right before the 4th gear shift point. Came to a stop light and said "You must have put a lot of work into that." :lol: Gave me the thumbs up and said it sounds great and we went our separate ways. BIGGEST SHOCKER OF THE NIGHT..!



#2 Honda Accord V6 (older model style maybe around 2000) - Loud exhaust, awesome neons, super bright and annoying rectangle foglights, other than that, mods are unknown.

I was cruising around 65 and saw these brights ass lights coming up from behind. I got kind of excited because I thought it might be something cool. He's coming what seems to be fast. He gets right at my rear bumper (could no longer see annoying fogs in rear view) and I punch it. I never saw the driver's face or didn't catch what I was racing. :lol: He wanted some more and honestly, so did I. From about 60 he started about a car and a half ahead of me. I motioned for him to go and he did as did I. When I left off around 100, I was probably two cars on him.



#3 GMC Turbo Diesel Truck (Year & Model Unknown) - Looked like the same triple pillar pod I had w/ blue gauge, Lifted, rims, huge tires, LOUD ass turbo (pretty sweet hearing it spool) and huge exhaust.

From 65, I got the jump and held it until around 90 where he began leading. When we left off around 105-110, he was about half a car to a full car in front of me. Cool guy, gave me the thumbs up.




All in all, I had fun and LOVE this car even more now.

Would be locked because it is not a "tale from the strip". Also a good example of how insurance rates get raised for the rest of us, and how people get hurt or killed.

Exactly...




Tales from the strip are welcome. Tales from the street races are not.
