Thumbs down another slow honda civic

the other night i went down to the drag strip because a few friends of mine were down there with there cars just tunning. and a guy cam up to me asking me about my car. he was talking alot of crap. saying things like "its not supercharged..oh then im sure its fast *ha ha* and im just like yeah well what do you drive. turns out its a red honda civic with a body kit and some nasty stripes down the side. hes got an air intake and exhaust...and neons haha. so i ask him if he wants to run down the track. but he used the "no gas" excuse. so im like whatever.
-LATER THAT NIGHT- i was down at a place called battle ship parkway. its a long four lane road thats surrounded by water and there is a gas station and a battle ship next to it and thats it. so theres not much traffi. on the weekends people usually go out there and race. so anyway me and a friend of mine got a call that the guy we saw at the track is down there talking #$*@ about my car. so i go down there and saw him with a group of people. so i asked him if he wanted to race his honda in front of all his friends, so of course he had to. so we go down a few hundred feet to turn around and line up. he tells me hes just going to say go, im just like "dude my window is going to be up and theres no way ill be able to here you. so he says "ok well ill honk three times". so we pull out and he starts revving up...but he doesnt honk, so finally i honk.. unsure of whats going on i wait untill i see his tires move. then i let out and catch him and just walk past him. when we passed the parking lot with al the people they say i was about 3 casr ahead of him.i know he is still racing me because his headlights are still hopping up everytime he shifts. so i see him slow down and turn around. by the time i get back he is already out of his car and back with his friends. i went over and asked him if he missed a gear or somthing...he aid "yeah i missed second"...i didnt say anything but i deffinatly know he didnt miss second gear. so i ask him if he wants to race again so he can get a chance to do some better driveing...he told me "uhmm....maybe later on"

well there it is, now he and his friends know...

all and all it was a fun night

the end

well i guess thats a good race. What year was the civic? Sometimes they can be fast. I know some people here that have supped up civics, and they are no slouches in the 1/4, good kill though.

What did you run at the strip?

Yeah its just another slow civic...since all of us in our economy 4 bangers know all about going fast...

But seriously we arent really any faster than the civics here. I am comfortable knowing that at least they are slow too. Even the SVT focus I consider to be just one of the fastest slow cars. Then again I drove my friend's GTO the other night and now I will never feel fast in the focus again until walter marcy releases his turbo kit

The moral of the story is this guy was a real BSer and hatin on our ford brotheren owner of teh SVT. There for he showed him up and the silly honda owner made up a obvious exuse time in and time out on everything.
Little honda man can go around talking all day, "however its speed action that speak louder then a fart cannon exaust" (Me )

Nice kill man, plus I love the head light in the right side of you're signature man that looks awsome ;) Careful though man, one day you might run into one of the hondas with a dreaded 200+ HP park bench on the back.
