Tailgating

So I get a hour and a half of sleep Tues nite after taking my 4 yr old to the ER for croup. Coming home Weds I get this guy riding my backside so close the can read "Made by Ed" in the fine print on the licence plate. At the Light for home I make a right and the next quick right with him behind me still. Out comes the coal! I never noticed how much comes out until last nite. This guy dropped back a good 300 yrds. Great end to a long day.

Are you sure he dropped back or was he just covered up in smoke?

Sweet, nice job. My Buddie has an 85 dodge 360, and when people do that to him, (he has illegal cargo lights on his head ache rack) he just flips them on. Its still a lot more fun to blow smoke on them Nice job bud

Stacks are perfect for dumping coal on the person polishing your bumper. Convertibles tend to back off the fastest I've found.
Used to have a 6" tip out the passenger side in front of the rear wheel. A few times at a light with a rice burner revving his toaster engine, I would respond. Nothing like a little import with the windows down so everyone can hear their music and see the black smoke pouring in and out of the car

When people tailgate me and I know they are doing it on purpose I just hit the brakes and give them a good scare. If they look distraught then I cut them a break because sometimes it happens to me.

Nice man...yeah the one time I threw on my high-powered back-up lights and blinded the guy behind me. What can I say, switch off your brights when you pull up behind me

I have a full bedrack and have been thinking about some nice little lights pointing backwards. Since doing the stacks though, I have found that putting the skinny downs tends to bring about a sudden drop in headlight intensity from behind? It's really weird how that goes....
