Default my first post in "kills"

i've been on this site for a while, but this is my first kill post.


last night i decided to take out my car since i haven't driven it in a while. i took it to the rehearsal room where my band practices and then to a bar to see a band play and hang out.

on the way to the bar i was on the highway (mass pike) headed into boston. most of the time i drive relatively conservatively. the road was three lanes wide and i was in the left lane passing people. a car came down an on ramp and came up quick behind me.

so i finished passing the car to my right and changed lanes to the middle lane to let whoever it was go by. the car went by me and it was a 4 door accord. nothing ricey looking about it, kinda young looking guy driving.

he went past me but then just paced me. i hate when people have to pass me and then don't continue the speed after they get in front of me. the kid kept right there in front of me and when we'd come up to other cars he'd slow down so i'd have to stay behind him (not being able to pass on the right because other cars are there).

after a few times it became obvious he was ******* with me. he had an AEM license plate holder and dual mufflers, only "mods" i saw. he was starting to **** me off so when we got to an open stretch i decided to put an end to it. we got to a stretch where it's 4 lanes wide, very good visability and to my pleasure, i saw wide open road ahead.

i pulled to the far right lane and started SLOWLY accelerating just to make sure that he was really ******* with me. sure enough he paced me in the far left lane.

at 80mph i downshifted to 3rd and nailed it. i actually chirped 3rd which was cool. he also hit it and tried to keep up. i pulled hard through the top of third. when i hit 4th i pulled away VERY hard. and just so there was no mistaking i ran 4th all the way out and into 5th. by then he was probably somewhere between 1/4 -1/2 mile behind me. i think he stopped trying by the time i was a 100 yards ahead of him but who knows.

i usually wouldn't race a kid with a car like that but he really just pissed me off. what the hell was he thinking?

nice kill.
I bet that was a fun run.
A little excitement in an otherwise dull day.

1/4 to 1/2 a mile?
I bet he was at least a mile back!

Not too bad, but let me edit it so others don't get bored halfway through the story.

There, much better! Short, Sweet and to the point. My work here is done.
Remember quantity does not equate to quality when it comes to posting! This is not a term paper.

Nice Kill.

I cannot stand *** holes that race to get in front and then just keep you locked in with the slow lane.
