Corvette killer

I was on I-75 headed home tonight when I come up on a black late 90's model corvette. Good looking car that had been taken care of for sure. Well I pass him just running about 75 mph minding my own business, but at the same time watching to see if he would try to jump on me. My stack draws a lot of attention lol. Well about 30 seconds after I pass him, he swings it out in the right hand lane (3 lanes) and flies up on me. Well when he slows down next to me and we are running side by side I kicked it. Truck didn't down shift, but with the converter locked I slowly pulled on him to 95 mph from 75 mph. Well, he wanted some more. Same scenario. Converter locked at 75 mph, no downshift and I pulled on him to about 95 mph. So we head on up the interstate about 2 miles and hit this wide open 2 mile long straight away. This time I slowed down to around 60-65 mph so the truck would downshift. He jumped me and had me until we hit 70 mph. From there it was over. I pulled on him all the way to 105 mph. He came by me once we slowed down and gave me a thumbs up....made me feel pretty good.

Nice Kill. But don't get too full of yourself bc some of the newer vettes, z06's, and especially the zr1's will make QUICK work of your psd. Anyways love it when a 4x4 towing maching can beat sports cars at their own game. Go see if that vette can tow 10K plus LOL
