Exclamation READ[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] SVT met Idiotness (encounter could've been fatal)

I just got home from school. I was studying for a test I have to take tomorrow. Just right now on my way back here from school I met with the most idiotic (yes I said idiotic, does it exists? I don't know but I'm tired) SVTF owner on the road. I was driving @ 60 mph because I'm tired and wanted to take it easy. Going I5 south entering Chula Vista (for locals) I passed this focus coming out from the ramp into the freeway and I noticed it was a svtf because of the foglamps. So I see this guy accelerating and catching up with me; he checked out my car and kept rolling next to me. Suddenly he starts with the revs, I gave him revs back just like saying hi. Then he starts with these burst of acceleration and I immediately knew what he wanted. I said to myself "oh no way buddy", I just ignored him. He kept rolling with me and I thought it would be an interesting situation if a cop saw both of us there rolling so I decided to make a move; since I was going already at 60 I decided to gas the car a little intead of slowing down and changed lanes in front of him. Then this guy caught up with me again and started with the burst of acceleration, I was like "WTF dude!! move on". I had no option, I floor the gas and changed to the oposite side of the freeway and guess what the guy did? Yes he catchs up @ high speed and kept rolling next to me. Here comes the interesting part; we were next to each other and this f@cker decides that it is funny to bump his car with mine. The motherfAker actually threw me out of balance because he bumped my front left tire. I did panic, I didn't know what to do, I was like "WTF WTF WTF" I floored the gas pedal again and he starts starts doing the same, I was surprised that I actually was getting apart, either the guy didn't know how to drive or it was a really facked up svt. As I was leaving him behind I grabbed my cell and was about to call 911 to report him, but then I realized everything that was going to be involved with that and I need to get some rest for tomorrow, so I decided just to take the next exit like @ a high speed (do not try it, it is dangerous, I ws running for my life) and rode along the streets till I get to my house.

BEWARE OF THIS GUY!!!! IT WAS A RED OR ORANGE SVT!!!! IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THIS FORUM LET ME TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE AN IDIOT AND THE OST STUPID PERSON I'VE EVER HAVE TO DEAL WITH!!! IF YOU WANT TO RACE, GO TO A RACE TRACK, IF YOU WANT TO KILL YOURSELF DO NOT INVOLVE OTHERS!!!!


Note to mods* I was not racing, I was running because I didn't know what to do. If this is not the correct section, please feel free to move it.

THAT GUY WAS ME!

I was trying to tell you your gas cap was open when you started swerving all over the freeway at high speeds.

If it was a regular zx3, then it was a nicely done conversion. The cad had the front & rear bumper, side skirts, miniwing and EAP wheels. I'm pretty sure it was a legit svtf. And seriously, the guy was an a$$hole. I just checked my car and there seems to be no damage, at least id doesn't look like it, I'll see how it behaves today.

Why oh Why did you gas it.. Hit the Brakes. I realize that he would have done the same but no piont in swerving everywhere and driving at high speed. I would have gotten right behind him and got his plates and then called the cops and gotten off the next exit.

^^^ The thing is that I was already going slow. I was tired and not thinking very well, I just wanted to get to my house. My plan was to separate from him so he would just keep going. I wasn't swerving that bad, it was only once and I didn't go over 80 the very firts time I floored it. But yeah, I could've done something better I guess.

where do you go to school? I lived in Bonita most of my life and went to SDSU. I can't wait to go back there when I graduate.

oh and I probably ran into somebody stupid on the freeways every day. I've never been bumped though.
