Today i was on my way to lansing and after like 3 minutes of getting on the highway i see this old man and his wife coming up fast on me in what appears to be a Shelby Cobra... i am guessing this is a really nice kit car, but who knows.... so i turn around and look at him and he gets the idea...... so i floor it and he does about the same time.... i get up to about 100 and he is like right behind me so i cut over lanes really quick and he gets besides me at about 115 and his wife is juss cracking up and he juss punches it and all i hear is this loud rumble and he is out...... wow... worst waxin of my life... i totally got destroyed on this one... made my z4 look like a civic.... juss thought i would share with you all

Whenever I see a Civic (Except DX) pull up next to me I get goosebumps.

Fuckin' 525 auto.

Those cars are amazing. saw a fabulous kit car at a car show (shelby cobra kit). It was amazing. Red with the two white strips. Awesome bumber sticker on the hood in the recessed part facing so if a person (or cop) was standing next to the drivers side window, they would see "Capable of evading hgh speed pursuit". I didn't get to see or hear the car move at all though

sorry bro...but a Shelby Cobra and a Shelby GT -500 are two completely different cars.

3 points for effort though.

i kno alpine, thats why i am not shamed to post that it waxed me and yes , speedy is right, i was gunna post exactly what he said about the two being different.. anyways Elanor is that exact remake of the gt500 that a special design company out of texas did for gone in 60 seconds.... i hear they do em for a redicoulous price, Jason Giambi juss had one made.. pretty nice cars.... yeah but anyhow so there is no confusion, this was a Shelby Cobra... a fast one.... i wonder if an m3 would have competed... or better yet an m5
