I buy this... yes it's a go fast car.  8)  But I'm old enough to know better.  So, every Hyundai, Kia, Scion, ToyoNisSub, driven by a 20 something w/ a heart beat thinks it's an invitation to race?  BAAAAHAAAA!  Really?  You really think you have a chance in that little 4 or even 6 banger?

Silly tuners! I've had them try to race my C14.

That happens to me all the time...  Makes me feel kind of smug (and maybe even a bit superior) to let them race away from me at the light, thinking "I too, was overconfident, and ignorant, when I was a teenager..."

I think it's because the C14 looks kinda racy, kinda 'toury', and they don't know which trait dominates...  They'd never race an FZ or Gixxer that way...

Disclaimer : Once or twice, I've been compelled, against my better judgement and by a perverse nature, to teach them the error of their ways...

It seems to me that when they get done "tuning" those cars they are slower, but much louder, than before they started.  Anytime I'm lined up against something with a log muffler I know my 04 Pontiac Grand Prix is going to smoke it without even trying.  I'm not talking about the supercharged version of the Grand Prix either.

I had a friend that put about $20k into a Civic. The end result was pretty amazing car. Handled like it was on rails. Would pull well over a G on a skid pad I'm sure. Very quick but front wheel drive and naturally aspirated 4 cylinders have its limitations. Not a dragster.

People in cars that stop at least two car lengths from the next vehicle at a stop light and then creep up a few feet every 10 seconds.  Makes me crazy.

Spacers = people in cars that keep 5 or more car lengths between them and the car ahead of them in traffic on the slab, allowing everyone and their uncle to cut in front of them... AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!   :shoot:

Rollers = people who stop several car lengths back at a light, then roll slowly up to the light, a few feet a second, stopping every few feet... AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!   :banghead:

One guy I car-pool with pulls right up to the bumper of the car in front of him when wants to pass. When he pulls out to pass, his front bumper is within a foot of the other car's rear bumper. This is at highway speed. Must have poor depth perception. Very annoying.

This same guy plays the radio at a somewhat loud volume. OK . . . but he doesn't turn it down for commercial breaks. 6-8 minutes of commercials blasting. Very annoying.

I'm thinking about just driving myself to work.

I'm annoyed just thinking about it.
You must be an extremely relaxed, laid back sort of person. Because I couldn't tolerate either of those things more than once. Especially if the radio was country, in which case the commercial breaks would be welcome.
Start drivin'.

+1 on that...

I rode with a guy one time that wanted to stay in the left lane all the time and he wasn't going fast.  Drove me crazy.

Left lane bandits.
If you're not passing move over to the right.

In Pennsylvania that driving in the left lane without passing someone will net you a hefty ticket if the State Troopers see you.

I wish they would teach the CT state police how to do that (write tickets for left lane obstruction). All too common to find someone doing 50 to 55 MPH in a 65 MPH zone on the highway in CT.
