Me and the Porsche

I was coming up the ramp onto I-44 last night when I looked back and saw an orange 911 Turbo coming up. I thought to myself, this could be fun. When I got straightened out in my lane I stood on it hard. I banged every gear just perfectly...As I was going into 3rd we were neck and neck, which in the SVT, means were were running about 70. Well, you know how the SVT pulls in 3rd and 4th. I looked up in my mirror and saw the Porsche slowly get smaller. I only stayed on the highway about a mile and a half, but when I exited, all the Porsche guy could see were my brake lights.

Now I don't know how good a driver the guy was, he may have been good, and he may have been bad. But I am positively sure of one thing....that guy didn't have a clue that we were racing. Smoke another one!!!!!!!

I am going to a dealer today and in the show room they have a porsche Carrera GT...i saw it for a little yesterday but the dealer was closed... i have to see it up close. Its such a rare car. And porsches are my favorite type of cars.

Yes...the moral is, sometimes it's easier to win a fight if your opponent doesn't know you're there.
