So i'm driving for some random errands in my mom's 330cic. Had the top down drivin around pimpin my moms ride. I noticed a red 360 modena taking it easy as he came to a red light. Now obviously because his car was red he maybe, just maybe had the power advantage, weight advantage, tranny advantage, pimp factor advantage, aerodynamics advantage, and overall edged me out with a "that's a pretty cool looking car" advantage.
Anywho back to the story. it was dusk. A slight breeze combed my hair. I looked over in a disrespectful aww. It's a middle aged white male showing signs of a few gray hairs. And then, he inches foward. A little too much engine noise for a little inching foward if you ask me. I knew what he wanted. I smoothly slide my MOM'S super duper sequential automatic into "manual" mode while pretending to reach for the clutch. The light turned green. For that split second I felt the adrenalien rush of the car (or the lag from the automatic). I slowly eased into first keepingcalm abotu punchign it in my beastly 3700 lb machine. I use my peripherals to see him move foward in a nice motion, shiftign and then getting on it hard.
Now here, I let him get a bit of a headstart because I didn't want to embarass him that badly. Letting him get ahead by , 1, 2 maybe 6 car lengths I decide to punch it in second gear. I felt the cool breeze over my face. The heated seats scorching my buttocks. Some girly techno music caressing my ears.
Knowing how badly I was goign to whoop him I did the smart thing and turned into the shopping center (had to do errands) soon after I started to "pull" on him (he came to the next red light). After seeing this and not wanting to upset so many Ferrari fans i've decided to retire from racing Ferrari's in my moms e46 vert.
that made me think of something, btw...can anyone here think of why one man would need two Ferrari F430's (a red and a yellow) aannndd a Maserati Quattroporte? There's a guy that owns a clinical research company here that owns all three.....I'll give him the one F430 and the Maserati but why would you get two F430's? If you're gonna spend the money broaden your collection, get a Lamborghini or Aston Martin or something. Just seemed appropriate to ask this now ha
my friends dad has a Maserati Quattroporte and a (neon)green porsche an audi a4 and wants the f430 BUT i asked him if he would ever buy two of the same car in different colors he said "only if i total the first one"
BTW he keeps old bed matresses agains the wall because he sometime pulles his maserati into the garage(From the drivewaywhich might i add is like a private road) 10 or 12 feet into the garageand bumps the wall........
