This post is for those of you who wonder how your Bimmers would fare against one of these baby-Hemi powered behemoths.
The wife and I were cruising down the boulevard after a night out, 3 lanes in our direction of travel, with the traffic somewhat light. I roll up next to the offending 300c at about 50 MPH. We are approaching a slower car in our lane, so I nudge the throttle just a bit so I can pass the 300, and all of a sudden I hear this loud, God-awful aftermarket exhaust come to life next to me at full tilt as the 300 driver nails it.
I look over at the wife, proclaim, "It's on!" and stab the throttle. Now the 335 has a JB4 mind you, but the wife hates the extra boost, so whenever she's in the car I run stock map, so I was a little concerned about running against a slightly modded V8. My fears were unfounded however, as I quickly put 3-4 bus lengths on him within seconds, and easily made my lane change.
The 300 managed to catch us about 2 blocks later, and pulled alongside and 'gunned it'. I looked over and smiled, but because it was dark, and he had limo tints, I couldn't see the driver, so I don't know for sure what the rev was for.
It sure was satisfying though to 'educate' another Chrysler owner about just how slow his car really is!
