So I had my car out on the highway today after it rained to blow all the water off the body (I just waxed it on Wednesday) and I was headed back home after turning around at an exit about three miles down the road. The cops had a car pulled over and were searching it, so naturally everyone slows down. The speed limit was 65 and I was doing my customary 9 over the limit (the cops here won't touch you until you do 10) and I started passing everyone who was slowing down, and the last guy I passed was driving a blue late-90's Silverado 1500 pickup. I guess he thought I cut him off because right after I passed him he flashed his lights at me and got right on my ass. So I dropped into 4th at 74 and shot up to about 83, just to put some space between us. At this point he's in the far right lane and I'm in the middle, and I get over to the far left lane to pass another slow car in the center lane, and he cuts across all three lanes, passes the car I just passed and gets beside me and tries to get in front of me. I drop back down to 4th and run up to 95....and leave him way behind, there was a good 1/8th mile between us before I slowed back down to 74 because there's a speed trap ahead (no cops today, but its a frequent place for them to sit.)

The guy in the truck catches up (he's probably still doing 85) and flips me off, just before getting off at the next exit. He continued to flip me off all the way up the exit ramp. I know its pretty much a no-brainer that a compact will beat a full-size pickup, but its damn funny that this guy tried to get ahead of me. I don't know what he was thinking...but he was really pissed by the time he caught up with me. Too bad that speed trap wasn't running today...that would've been the icing on the cake.


lol good job! theres somting bout those chevy truck drivers......man I hate chevys.....no offence to anyone on here who does like chevys.....Im a dodge and a ford guy.... anyways.... What also pisses me off is that it happend a few times.... like when i was pulling into the driveway to my house... this random like late 90's model pickup revved his engine!@!!! he putt it in netural and revved it when he went passed me.. i hate it when they do it!! like it happend to me like 2 times in two diffrent chevy trucks! how ironic!!

Hilarious! This same thing happened to me last night! Iwas just cruisin the speed limit at night and this mid 90's Chevy truck lines up with me. I look over at him and he just kinda lurched forward a few times like he wanted to go for it. So I take off and he can't keep up. We catch a light and I didn't think he was gonna try again, but as soon as it turns green he starts squealing the tires taking off. I fed him another helping of Blue Oval, I even took his lane after I had about five car lengths on him. When I was up to about 90 I let off and he zooms by and gets in front of me like he's a big man. Neither time did he even look at me. I thought it was funny as hell.

If you look at road and track.. or is it car and driver... the newer chivies with the 5.3 do low 16's in the quarter... our cars stock can't beat that...

And...?

Regardless of what the new ones can do, this was a late-90's (AKA not new) Silverado, and I did leave him way behind. Sorry I don't have a camera in my car recording all the time so I could link to a video file for evidence. I didn't know it was a requirement to have iron-clad evidence for everything you post here...
