Just yesterday a young guy in a new Hyundai Veloster challenged me. This kid must have believed everything the saleman told him.

He even switched lanes right in front of me and floored the gas trying to show off. I don't street race (too dangerous and risky), but I did quicky set him straight. He left with his tail between his legs and a frown on his face.

Few years ago, I had a kid try to start something with me on the interstate. I was only in my Alero...but he was in an old Grand Cherokee....pulling a fully loaded trailer. No clue what that was about.

Which would be very typical of Hyundai customers.

My cousin had a Bad A** Barracuda back in the muscle car days(mid to late 70's)and out ran most everything around! One night about 2:00 a.m. A late 60's model Camaro pulled up beside him and when the light turned green,that Camaro took off and he didn't see nothing but tail lights as they got smaller and smaller in distance!! Left him like he was sitting still !!!
