I got beat by a Cobalt!!

Alright so last night me and some buddies pull up at a light next to a cobalt and he asked me if I wanted to race so I said sure thinking it was just gonna be like every other cobalt, slow as hell. Well I started stallin up my truck and my friends were just laughin because we thought we were just going to blow them away. The light turned green and a I launched out about 5 car links ahead of them so it looked promising that i was going to win. Then all of a sudden he just blows by me, and his car is making this wicked *** scream. We pulled over and talked and it turned out he had it supercharged and a handful of other mods.

We just laughed when he passed me because we were not expecting it at all. Ill just have to race him again when I have that much money to dump into my rig!
