PSD vs. Hummer

I got a good laugh at this one. I was on my way home from work sitting in traffic for 40 min I come up beside a true hummer, not these newer ones but the old school massive ones like the military uses. This guy has all the gauges, CB, airhorn, dual 5" pipes, it wsa a nice looking SUV. I pull up beside him and nearing the end of the stop lights a mile form the express way I gun it to make it thru the light he does the same. We inch up to the next light somehow we both are sitting at the light, I looked over, and it was obvious it was on, LOL, my truck it mostly stock, 62 hp diablo chip, no muffler, DIY intake. Light goes green, I gun it (accidentally smoked the wheels) I was off, easy 3 lengths, by shift into 3rd( I have an auto sorry, "00 250, 7.3 SC 4x4) . Rolling up to the next light, he rolls up again, I was yelled out to him what happened, he had some excuse, and it was on again. I saw him mess with something by his dash, and I look over to my right to left to see this mid 20's blonde and brunette in a nice little alfa romeo conv. wearing short shorts and bikini tops, of course I was distracted, and the light turned green and he was off. By the time I look up, he had 3-4 lengths on me. I gun it again, a little easier tho, not smokin em, girls or the wheels and literally within 2 shifts I was at his bumper, when I shifted into 4th(seems to be the best power to speed gain I blew away and aroudn 95 MPH I let up and he was WAY back there, I waited til he caught up and he gave me a thumbs up. It was fun, I thought for sure he would have done more damage than that to me, dual 5's I thought you needed some power to have those. Oh yea I forgot to mention I has 2 750CC fourwheelers in the back for my buddy I work with. Sorry it was a very long thread.

with the tailgate down and I had a "bed extender" that goes in the reciever. I haul garage doors alot 16'long in the bed. I modded the bed extender to add 2 feet to the end of the bed, gives me 12'4" of bed length

nice kill!!


not only did you get two kills, you also got some eye candy as well.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I am working on getting pics, I dropped the camera about 3 weeks ago and broke the lens, shopping for a new one, but I finally convinced my g/f I need gauges before we get a camera. LOL
