Going North 405 fwy from the Irvine Spectrum 370 Nissan kept challenging me. No way have waited since 67-69 for this car. I exit Beach Blvd. South 370 got on my bumper well just gave the gas a little tap the Camaro responded with out any hesitation left the 370 at the top of the off ramp seems to me "all show no go" 370 was just off the showroom floor had the paper license plate. Headed So. Beach blvd. got in the far left lane 370 was to slow by the time got to the bottom I was gone not a race but I am so pleased driving her loving every minute of it.

It's really hard NOT to put people in their place when they are egging you on.

You just want them to roll down their window so you can say, "What.....are you nutz"?
