Default SN95: GT Vert vs. Cobra

I was going home from MCAS Miramar, driving southbound on the 15. A nice cobra pulls up next to me and revs the engine. I didn't want to race it because I knew I was going to lose. Well 1-2 miles later he's still riding close and keeps revving, therefore I said, "what the heck...", I floored it taking off slowly, then he floors in and takes off leaving me behind. I think if I had NOS or supetrcharger I would have kept up with it.

Little did I know my buddy was trying to keep up in his lexus IS300 lol. I thought that car was fast.

You know, we have a specific section for stories like these, it's called the S/S section. Try it sometime, it'll do wonders for you...

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

My 96 GT vert ran a 15.8@87, my 97 Cobra ran a 14.3@99. No shock on the outcome.
