His girl was impressed
OK, the skinny.... ****y punk in a Saab convertible with a HOT blond girl in the passenger seat, top down, sniffing smoke... girl goes crazy over the PSD that smoked them.
Driving South from the airport in Raleigh through town, I had my windows down and radio off, so that I could hear the rumble from light to light, and this couple kept pulling up next to me at each light as they turned red. A 28-30 year old punk in a Saab convertible was talking loudly to his girl about how good his car was off the line, and from a rolling stop. I tried to ignore his lame comments about his saab story, but he must have heard the rumble from my MBRP cool duals as I was taking off, so he started trying to play with me.
For about six lights that turned red on us, somehow traffic stayed in front of us as we traveled down Glenwood avenue into town. But then, as we reached the funny St. Mary's Street intersections, the light was red, and there was no one in the left lane (the lane he was in). Now as it happened, I was just in front of him in the other lane and he saw the same thing as I did, so he allowed me to swing over in front of him... red light, me in front, him directly behind me with the top down.
Now as luck would have it, I showed the presence of mind to do two things as I was slowing down for this golden opportunity. First I reached over to my tuner and set it on extreme. Second I reached down to the 4x4 button turning it over to 4 high. As luck would have it the light went to green as I was just slowing down to 10 MPH, and that little saab was gaining on my bumper quickly... so I nailed it.
A half a second for the turbo to kick in and BOOM/SWOOSH/RUMMMBMBMMMBBLLLLEEEE/Screeeeech!!!!!
I look back to see headlights through the fog of about a gallon of diesel fumes pouring out over his car, his headlights jumping with the two shifts he was able to get in before he realized it was a lost cause..... He was SMOKED!!!!
At the next light I'm sitting there laughing to myself thinking it's over when he pulls up next to me. I look over and his girl is almost standing on her seat, "That was freaking awesome. Your truck sounds so good, like a freaking jet. You left a freaking cloud back there!" Then she gets caught up in the moment and blurts, 'When this light goes green, bye bye, we'll see you later." with a wink and an arm movement that can only mean they'll smoke me this time.
Then it happens. Her boyfriend gets smart and says, in a very humble fashion, "That might not be possible, hon." And as the light turns green, a very quiet and now humble young man pulls away from the light just like mom would have.
Dang it's nice to neuter a yuppie.
