So i'm driving home on the freeway tonight when this kid pulls up beside me in a riced ford probe(lowered, exhaust, racing stickers, etc). He gets even with me and starts stomping on the gas to lurch his car forward, an obvious invitation=) I really wasn't set to race since all my windows and my moonroof was down, but I gave a half-hearted push on the gas for bout half a mile, since there were cars in front of us. So we both slow down, and we came to a turn off. The car in the right lane(in front of him) takes the turn off, and he proceeds to take off like we're still racing.

At this point my sense of competition gets the better of me, and I shift down into 4rth(we we're going about 75) and mash the throttle. He prolly did have it modded a little since he got to 100 fairly fast, but he was no match. A shot around on his left and blew by. The next thing I knew the noise was deafening, the tach showed 6500 RPM, the speedo showed 120, my exit is 2 lanes to the right, and the probe is in my rear view mirror. The whole thing prolly took about 15 seconds. I was blown away by how fast my car accelerated to 120 with all the freakin windows down and the moonroof open. Was fun=)
