Finally raced the Mustang

OK, so the wife and I have had a few days off and had a chance to have some fun. We took the Mustang and truck outside of town to some straight, uninhabited back roads to set up a race or two and get some video. Well to my dismay, the roads there were all icy. And just driving normal was a challenge.
These aren't exactly Blizzaks.
We had some dinner at the local Mex. restaurant and headed home. I'm piloting the Mustang now to keep the wife safe. On the way home the highway opens up to four lanes for a few miles. We decided to do a rolling start, street racer style. She pulls up to the left side of me going 50 and on the 3rd honk we're gone. Now knowing that the there are a few things hadicapping the truck (Downshifting Automatic, Turbo Lag, not so experienced female driver) I paused for a sec and then glued it. WHAT SWEET Music came from the Magnaflows on the truck! We were nose and nose till about 90 and the Mustang started pull away. Let's face it the car's got legs (and aerodynamics). We did it twice to be sure.

Today the F350 was at Car Toys getting the pain generator sirens installed, and when we picked it up, the wife drove the car home. On the Freeway onramp I see her coming on strong from behind, GAME ON!! I swear guys, even with her momentum and my Cousin in my passenger seat, she never got more than a fender on me. As the ramp lanes merged together and our speeds led to nearly triple digits, I tapped the brakes to let her go by and not to kill us all. Traffic was too thick, and I have no chance of weaving this 4 ton monster in and out of the same holes the Mustang slips thru, so she skitters away, tailpipes singing, middle finger out the window. But wait, traffic breaks on the final stretch near home far right lane clear for half a mile, her lane is only open for about a quarter mile. My jaw clenched shut, foot thru the floor, the Gods of torque slammed the door and the Mustang could not pull ahead.
She did beat me home in the end because she wove thru a bunch of cars in the left lane, but I was well satisfied with our performance.

Maybe you could get your wife to call my wife and relate that story to her.
My wife would never buy that from my mouth.
