Smile A funny thing happend today waiting for my camaro

I'm one of the lucky ones that has a vin but no car yet and I'm getting so antsy it's ridiculous. Case in point today I was sitting at a light with 2 lanes of traffic. My big ass GMC Acadia and I in the right lane and this tricked out 2000ish era mustang with a big functional scoop in the left lane. I'm thinking to my self I wonder if he thinks getting by me will be easy since I believe we both want to merge onto the freeway that is a few hundred yards away to our right after the light.

Anyway I go in race mode and beat him off the line when the light turned green... I must have shocked him pretty good since his first shift was horrendous I saw his car jerk a few times and then he just gave up and went behind me and followed my car's fat ass on the freeway... I was laughing so hard I might have peed myself if I had a full bladder. I've been telling this story all day and thought I should share it with my fellow camaro5 buddies. And I donít know who was driving I just was focused on the car and the light so I didnít look at the driver.

And yes itís true it might not be exactly camaro related but it is GM related so please donít flame me.

It's even more fun in 4 low. A 6000lb truck will JUMP forward when you punch it in 4 low. Tops out REAL quick though.....

The guy in the Mustang was probably laughing at the Mario Andretti wannabe in the Acadia......Nothing I like more than someone driving some family truckster like it's a race car. Pretty sad you have been "telling this story all day". Next time maybe you could take out someone in a golf cart or maybe a battery powered wheelchair.

I can vouch for that! My dad did that in his F-250 when we were both at a light (I was in my '93 Camaro V6). Didn't know they could do that till then, was like
