Short story, but was southbound on US41 through the IL boondocks, when I come to a three lane intersection (not including the left turn lane and right turn lane). A couple hundred feet after the intersection, the right lane merges into the middle. Obviously, those who recognize the opportunity in the right vehicle like to sit in the right lane and "pass" the car in the middle.
Anyway. So I'm up at the line, and I check next to me. It's some kind of wrangler with a chick in it, bikini top and chewing bubblegum. She'll let me through without ever seeing me.
Light goes green.
I calmly revv to 4k's to 3rd, easily passing the bubbly girl. As I check my blind spot (safe and fast) to move into the middle lane I hear the high pitched scream of a performance engine. A black Nissan 350z has decided to hotfoot it from his own standstill, and is easily pacing me, and beginning to outpace.
I've seen cops in the area.
So naturally, I stay in third and floor it.
My car lurches about a car length behind the Nissan. He shifts. I gain. I shift. I gain. About 30mph later, I'm passed his bumper up his wheel well.
I slowly let off the throttle and shift, and come neck and neck - then I glance down at the speedometer as I know there's a curve ahead.
Oops. I'm going 120 in a 45.
Before being able to pass him, I coast to slow down and he keeps accelerating. I stick my hand out the window (tints) and turn on my fogs to get his attention and wave goodbye.
I would have beat him if I wasn't chicken.

Huh.* The 0-60's I looked at actually have both vehicles going a bit slower (but still about equal).* What's your source on that?
