Default People wanting to race you in a very unlikely car

I think I get this on a daily basis..people in their minivans, accords, camrys, focus, sonatas, 328s, etc wanting to race you on the streets and tailgating you lol. Past Sunday, a Geo Tracker was driving like a maniac on Grand Central Parkway in NY to pass me, at the end I let him go. Do you get this on a daily basis? if so, any memorable unlikely cars?

I have had similar experiences. Apparently a lot of SUVs like to try to race me. Gas is expensive enough already so I just ignore them.

the ~2010 V6 Camry will do 0-60 in like 6.3 sec, which i think is still slower than any stock S2000 with a healthy engine. i believe a V6 Accord will be around the 6.5-6.7 sec range. don't S2000s do about 5.8-6.0, depending on launch?

I get alot of TC's and XB's revving on me, for the most part I don't even turn my head to look their way.

Actually both the Camry v6 and Accord v6 are around 5.7 seconds 0-60 now. So a very tight race against an S2000. Catch the s2000 out of vtec and will definitely get beat.
