I had another incident last night with my family in the car. We were coming home from a soccer tournament and this guy in a brand new GTO, and I think it had a manual since the way it hopped every time it shift.

Anyway, the guy cut me off entering the freeway ramp, it was one of those really nicely curved and banked ramps entering the freeway. He takes off down the ramp, which got the best of me so I followed. Needless to say I had no problem keeping up with him down the down ramp, but notice the GTO sliding out in the curve. When we exited the ramp we were doing 80 with me right on his tail.

We hit the highway, with little traffic and went a little way and I was about to make my move into the fast lane and realize someone was come up fast in the fast lane so I backed off, just as I did this, the GTO guy was too busy watching me in the his rear view mirror then realize he was about to slam into the mini copper infrom of him. He locks it up and I hit the brake and slowed down way fast than him and at that point down shifted swung out and passed him before he knew it.

So a$$wipes drive all sort of cars. and what worse they drive cars without knowing how the car performs.
Hey Maestro!!! Good to see a post from you!! First off, the GTO is not in the same class as you, unless it was the 6.0, not 5.7

Second, I think I have a solution to everyone's problem, just do what I did, get a failed fuel pump so you can get into a 325 loaner, and suddenly, "poof" no more target for 6 weeks, and everyone just ignores you
