Jk all kidding aside, I finally got some action worthy of a post. I was on my way to Mexico late at night and saw some familiar headlights in my review mirror. A 2012+ 5.0 comes next to me, drops it down a gear and shoots away from me. "Asshole." I mind my own business and keep cruising. Another set of headlights appear in my mirror and I notice its an 05+ GT. I figure what the hell and decide to play a bit. That 5.0 comes back and tries to pick on me, goosing the throttle with his buddy. I yell out the window "Ya ya, pick on the little guy." He puts a thumb up and goes a little ahead of us. That 05+ Gt pulls up even and I hear him downshift. I drop down to 4th and then 3rd. My tach reads 3-3500 ish at 65mph, I think. No one is honking it off and we just posture a bit, I'd stab my throttle for a quick second and so would he. After doing this 3-5 times I decide that I'll just take the hit being the underdog. I take the hit and we are off. He timed it perfectly and as I got out to a 1/4 of a fender lead to stops my pull. It stays even through 3rd and I bang 4th as hard as I can. He slowly pulls even by 100 ish and begins to pull on me. I'm a car length behind at the top of 4th (120mph). I shut it down and throw a thumbs up. My exit was coming up and didn't want to miss it.
I knew I was going to lose since I could tell it was lightly modded. No shame in a defeat to something I'm supposed to lose to. I will be honest, it got me wanting more power.
My mods are 3.73's, mid pipe, cat-back, and a canned 91 tune. I know, nothing impressive.

I don't care how fast or slow your car is. Imo, you have one of the best looking, coolest cars on this forum. There is actually a 2V bullitt for sale here in Raleigh now and I drool every time I pass by it sitting on the lot. IDK what it is about them, but I dig them.
At any rate, sounds to me like you did alright considering that 3V is a superior car mod for mod to yours. I bet from a stoplight thru the 1/8th you'd give him a fit. Nice run man.
