Riding around tonight with the girlfriend enjoying the cooler weather I happen upon a very clean looking mid to late 80s convertible Corvette. We get caught at a light and I am not sure if he is gonna go so I am paying close attention. Well the light goes green and we take off and I kind of ease out of it seeing whats gonna happen. He took of kind of fast and jump a little bit ahead of me so I sped up to match his speed and he lets out of it. Well right about the time he let out of it I shifted into third figuring he didnt want to go. Well as soon as I went into third I hear a loud whistle right beside my passenger window and I had no time to downshift as the SRT-4 was already spooling up beside me. I hammer it down in third at about 45 mph and stop him from pulling up any and slowly start walking away. I went all the way up to about 80-85 I guess and the faster I went the faster he was falling off. I got about 2-3 on him by around 80 or so and decided to let out because of the area could have cops in it. He went on turned right and as he was turning I thought there might be a wave or a thumbs up but he just looked at me and smiled and made the motion with his head like, HMMM. I dont know waht he had but the BOV was kind of loud and the turbo was kind of loud. It sucks I had my cut out closed, which I lose 30 rwhp like that, but that is being taken care of next week with some true duals. I also had a passenger and he didnt and my bottle was closed. For some reason I feel like its my responsibilty to absolutely rape these guys and was a little upset that everything was going against me liek that. I wasnt expecting any races. Oh well I still walked him, and at a bad spot in third gear.
