Getting cut off by small cars....

I don't drive fast often because in New York, there's a cop like every half mile. But no matter where I go, if I'm cruising at like 60-65mph, a prius or Honda, or something small will speed up just to cut me off lol. The minute I speed up to not let them do it is when the cop will tag me.

Bleh.

That's just the weenie factor - weenies driving inferior cars trying to make themselves feel better. Later tonight while meeting with other weenies, he'll tell everyone how he blew a Camaro away...

Down here, all the damn Toyotas and Hondas like to ride in the "fast" lane, at or below the speed limit. Holding up the traffic (the majority) that is cruising moderately over the limit. And there is a mile of open road ahead of them. Frustrating, but what can you do?

Funny....I was just driving the wife's S2000 a couple of weeks ago down a stretch of highway and a V6 Mustang came along side and proceeded to give me a driving lesson. He lost. A guy from California is flying down to buy it Tuesday. It will be missed but we're running low on garage space. My knees will thank me though.

Moral of story: Weenies come in all flavors.

Come up behind them with this. They might move over.

I just laugh at their insecurity then I get pissed about the rocks they throw up from changing lanes right in front of me, usually I know when it's coming and just hang back. Like the snow plow pic that's funny !

It's actually noteworthy to me how LITTLE this happens to me in the Camaro. I also own an Audi, and drive my girlfriends cars and company cars regularly....and there's nothing like the Camaro to get people to move out of the way when you're traveling down the highway, or let you go when it's a coin-toss who should have the right of way.
