This to crazy of a story not to share.
I'm driving along HWY 380 in California merging to HWY 101 North towards San Francisco. As I was merging this guy in a 69 mustang, real clean car, was looking at me like he wanted to race. Me minding my own business didn't bother with the guy, because there's a time and place for everything. Anyways. so I'm merging from the slow lane and this guy is in the 2nd lane next to the slow lane and cuts me off hard, to the point where I had to slow down. This bitch cuts me off so hard that he looses control of his car. This guy is doing 360's on the freeway and I'm like oh shit, he's gonna hit me. So I speed up and switch to fast lane as fast as possible. I take a look at my rear view mirror and see this guy still spinning out and finally hits the side rail along the slow lane. Damn that shit was funny.
Thanks to the handling and control of my bimmer as well as the driver, my Bimmer and I were ok. This shows that Muscle cars may be fast, but aint got shit for handles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's good you kept your cool.

Obviously the other driver not only lost control of his car and wrecked it, he lost control of his emotions (not cool).

Good driving to you and yours.

You think 52MPH is fast on a moped? Try going 65 on a pocketbike. if you've havent seen one go to www.pocketbike.com
