So I was heading back to the dealership and I hit a red light. I look over at this Chevy 1500 truck and think nothing of it. I'm naturally an accelerator...so I punch it when it turns green (in sport mode)...and then I see him trying to keep up...and his engine revvs high switching gears....but I've already switched into 3rd by the time he had trouble getting it up....and I was increasing my lead. I was ahead by 1/2 a cars length and just kept up the lead....once I hit 80/85 he was 2-3 cars behind...or slowed down knowing he lost.

I slowed down to let him catch up. I looked over at him and he gave me the.... look. I just grinned at him. He smiled and then waved at me...

Then I sped up and met him again at the next light....we were moving.
I was going straight...and he was turning left...and once again before departing he gave a wave and smile.

I just ginned the whole way home, knowing I owned him.

Great story huh?

I thought so too. It was better in person.

Just wanted to share.

Thanks

Oh no, I honestly would NEVER do that. In all seriousness.

It was with one of our loaners, I was running some errends and needed to get back to the dealership....I was in a hurry too.

I just though it was interesting that a truck would try a BMW.

Hey, watch it. I hear those Tahoe's can OWN an e46 m3 from a standstill. And outmaneuver them at the turns.

he probably was just messing around, figuring he had no chance. Or he was really stupid and actually thought he could take you. Either way, its nice to hear that he smiled and waved and didn't do a lame ricer fly by to make himself feel better.
