Default S197 vs Fox

Well yesterday going back to work from lunch I noticed a goldish LS1 T/A while I was filling up with some gas. Well I tried chasing him down but I believe he took one of the exits on to the highway and I didn't notice....

Well on my quest for the T/A (not knowing he turned off) I got behind a really nice Silver 05-09 GT lightly smoked taillights. We stopped at a light me still behind him; light goes green and he takes off faster than the other car beside him and I was able to get on over to get up beside him. This car sounded like sex!!! It def had a mid pipe with mid mount mufflers and turn downs but his tips mounted in the stock location.

Well I ended up getting ahead of him and I got up to the speed limit (60mph) then he zoomed up to me real fast and he paced me for a second, then got right up with me grinning from ear to ear gave me the thumbs up and nodding his head so I went on and geared down to 3rd and he did the same I counted on my fingers to 3 and we took off at the same time I started pulling instantly pretty good it went 1 car then 2 cars then right at 3 cars by the top of 3rd (right at 90) and He shut down so I did too.

He didn't pull back up for anymore of the fox but as I made my u-turn I threw my hand out the window and he threw a friendly rev at me. I wish I could of gotten the T/A but I love a good ol' mustang to mustang action!

Good run bro! Even full boltons I'd think you have the 3vs covered. Ive been seeing a gold colored t/a around lately, chrome stock wheels?

Thanks bro and even a light bolt on 3v I figured would hang in the a little better I guess but I don't know haha

But that would be the T/A it sounded like it might of had at least a muffler but I've been told its a 6sp car too so if the guy could drive it could be a good time! Lol

Good run!! As your brother said I think you have most NA 3V's covered with your car. I haven't seen the gold Trans Am around, I will have to be on the lookout.
