Haha!!! Karma at it's best!

So on my way in to work this morning I was cruising down the freeway when a black mustang pulls up behind me. He proceeds to follow me so closely that I was pretty sure his bumper is fused to my trunk. This goes on for a few miles, I could tell that he was trying to got me as I could here him rev a few times. (not the first time this has happened to me when I drive my camaro, he obviously has little car syndrome.)

When he finally got an opening in traffic he gets over and pulls up next to me and gives it a few revs before gassing it and taking off. I had nothing to prove so I just kept cruising. I'm glad I did because as soon as he took off & started splitting lanes a CHP motorcycle cop pulls out from behind a car a few vehicles back & takes off after him. I kindly got over to the slow lane and gave him a nice friendly wave as he was being pulled over to the side. I don't think I've ever had such a big smile driving to work in my life...

Pretty patient to let him ride your bumper for a few miles. I would have given him a love tap or two but that is awesome that he got what he deserved.

Years ago had a car cut me off for no reason on I-5 north of Seattle coming home late. Not another car going in my direction and he cuts me off. I slow down and next thing you know a highway patrol car catches the moron and pulls him over. Was such a good feeling.

Good job!!!

I'm in So Cal so traffic was thick while he was doing it didn't have much choice but to let him do it. He was so close I was afraid to brake. Just glad that tool got what he deserved, they usually get away with it...

NICE!!

Not unique to the Mustang tho. I had a 5th Gen Camaro SS (2SS/RS L99, I ran a 13.31 @ 104.21 and he ran a 13.45 @ 105) that I had raced and beaten on the strip follow me out. He was all butthurt and was on my bumper all the way, hiding in blind spots and generally being an ass. I just minded my own business because I had already proven my cars worth.

After about 10 minutes he gets up and gets along side me and opens his exhaust cutouts. I just look at him and hold up the time slip, to which he flips me off and goes roaring off, well past 75 (in a 45 zone)...right past an Oregon State Police Hemi Charger.

I know the trooper and asked him two days later what happened. He got $650 dollars worth of tickets (speeding, excessive speeding, wreckless driving, improper passing and illegal exhaust) and 6 points on his record.

I was quite happy.

That's so much better than anything you could have said to him. Nice work lol.

Or he (or she) could be going somewhere.

I know its unlikely, because every Mustang (including those from before 67!) were made to envy Camaro's (especially since they didnt exist before 67) and exist only to follow them along in a jealous fit.

Just tossing out the possibility that the Mustang could indeed be going somewhere.

Well i know he was going somewhere, why else would he be driving then. But my point was I was well ahead and i could see this stang driving thru traffic to catch up, once he did he just stayed behind me... So its a little odd that he was accelerating thru traffic yet when he gets to my camaro he stays there and doesnt pass me...

You took the time to take a picture of a Mustang in your review mirror while you were driving. Yet, the consensus here is that the mustang owner was jealous of your car.

No my rearview mirror has a camera with an automatic mustang detector... .... yes isnt it obvious that i took the pic. And i would have to assume he was jealous other wise why did he stop when he got behind me. Like i said he was accelerating and passing all the other vehicles behind me until he got to my car so why did he treat me any different? Oh thats right, Its a Camaro!

Look out the Mustang pack is jumping in here to defend all the 16-year-old stang drivers that want to race EVERYTHING.... Saw one the other day revving his engine at a KIA Soul...

Great story. There are way too many people with more car than common sense. Thank God the cops were able to give him a driving lesson before he learned it the hard way.
