Well, if you mean it like whats my Elenor, it would have to be this guy that rides around town in this later model Z-28, white, with some mods. The guy looks like he is probably my age (mid-30's) and have run across him several times. Everytime we meet, he gets me because i will miss second every single time. I almost never miss a gear, but against him, everytime. Ill jump him about 1/2 a car and miss second and its over from there.lol. Pleanty of wins and some losses, but this one i cant figure out, every.....stinking.....time, lol.

Nah, he'll just have to make it through the gears faster then. My "rival" is this souped-up Geo Metro that has the 6" can on the end and enough stickers to make me think it goes fast as all hell. Those 13" wheels are bad ass too. Real monster there!

Current: FRPP STS, Focus Sport strut bar

Slowly but surely building the perfect animal.

I have a very aggravatingly fast Mini Cooper S that keeps beating me in G Stock at the autocross, but then again he's got R-comps. I figure if I am within 1-2 seconds of his best time that I actually drove with more skill...
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...

There is this 2006 Sonic Blue ZX3 that hangs around this area. I don't know who drives it, but he thinks he's so badass. He's got tint, a FocusSport exhaust, and a timing chain from the looks of it. LOL

Rock on.
