Response to "My car vs Your car" threads

There's always someone faster than you. Some of the "vs" comparisons are just silly...Like this race


Or this mis-match...

the winner

P.S. Don't give away the ending.

i can laugh at those because i did fall victim to a race like that. i had my 99 trans am with NOS, and a old Dodge OMNI turbo pulled up next to me at the drag strip.i laughed at him becasue he had a race helmet on but needless to say he blew my doors off.

Dodge Omni would make a good sleeper, almost as good as an AMC station wagon

I've seen an '91 Dodge Spirit R/T beat an Audi S4. There's a vid on youtube somewhere but I can't remember what the link is. But it was pretty damn cool.

Nvm I found it.

The only time I got owned ugly was vs a truck. I was in the vette and we where in the sticks. No other traffic and a red light 2 lanes.

Black truck.. dodge... Sleeper...

Big mistake to engage.. so at 110 I gave up because I realized he had a
V10 HEMI lol... total pownage. (I guess it's called Magnum not hemi 8.0liter SRT-10).

My most memorable spanking was a pickup truck too. 57 Chevy belonged to a local engine builder, shoe-horned a nasty rat motor between the fenders.
