Getting hassled by other cars?

Has anyone else noticed drivers of a specific model car harassing you when your driving your Camaro?

For instance I've had a huge issue with Prius drivers tailgating me, cutting me off, jumping in front of me and slowing down, so on and so forth.

Was curious if anyone else has had some similar experiences...

I'm just more amused at multiple Prisus's getting pissy enough to try and slow down the big mother nature raping V8, and was curious if it was just a Florida Prius thing rofl

im more surprised...i guess....that the prius owners dont realize that traveling faster than 85 MPH in their car yields them less MPG than the camaro cruising at that speed.

A prius got infront of you AND slowed down?

Stuff like that is better not shared on these forums !! Settin yourself up brah !

I bet none of the Mustang drivers I pass in the Pontiac Montana ever share that story.
heheh.

From now on when you tell that story... your prius.... is now the SSC Ultimate Aero.
which only has just shy of 1200 hp... sooo it's ok to be passed by them. Plus I think they cost as much as about 13 2SS/RS's fully optioned.

I had a small import drive right by me with his glass pack, slow down, cut me off to get me to slow down so we could race. I promptly laughed at him and off he went. I was also accosted on the Mass turnpike during vacation by a bunch of frenzied college students in a minivan trying to get a picture of the car. All of the attention was fun at first now it is getting a little tedious...but still kinda cool.

Personally I'm predicting...

Mustangs..
Riced out preludes/integras/civics VW GTI's, and a handful of high end BMW's and 350/370 Z's. Those tend to be what the little Intial D's drive around here.
However, if I'm cruisin at a comfortable speed , I'm not about to rage and race em.. I know what a Camaro can do.. And I also know it will get more attention than any of the above mentioned

You know I don't see it with the prius's out here but I do see a lot of old school Firefly's really gunning it out there like they got somethin to prove... pretty funny

...or in my Silverado through downtown Hagerstown! Pothole central! Plus, if he stopped I'll bet he'd be up on blocks and missing his wheels before the light changed!

Once your at a stoplight, what I'd do is make sure you're next to the Prius, shift into neutral and then just start revving your gas guzzler like mad. Make sure you get some smoke to come out of your tailpipes.

I had a Corvette with a nasty attitude pull up next to me and want to race- no way!

If a Prius did that to me, he would get it right back in spades.
