S2K v newer gen Camaro
Sup guys. So last night as I was heading home, I get to the front of a stoplight. Who's on my left side? A newer gen red Camaro (not the ones with the 4 square tail lamps, but rather the one with one rectangular tail lamp on both left and right side). From what I see, it's completely stock. Couldn't even tell if it was a v6 or v8 (no badges). Now, this stretch of road is pretty clear around this time of night, and it's a slight curve for about a 1/4 to 1/2 mile. I ALWAYS like to gun my S here. So whether or not the Camaro owner wants to race, I'm going for it.
The light turns green. Sure enough, the Camaro is WOT. He pulls on me out of first gear by maybe a half a car length. By the end of second gear and 9k, I gain some ground, and I'm right next to him. By this time, the road starts to bend a bit. Into third gear, I start pulling slowly away, and by the end of third gear the Camaro is at my rear fender. By the middle of fourth gear, I notice the Camaro start to slow down, as do I. By the time we reach the next light, the race is done, and I make the right turn into my neighborhood with a fat grin on my face.
All in all, I'm pretty happy that my 14 year old car can still hang with these newer cars.
