Cars that "run up" on you....

... and by "run up" I mean while you're crusing at a decent pace ( 75-80mph) a car or truck blasts thru traffic and gets this >|< far away from your baby as he/she zooms by. This weekend, drove up to Vermont and had the following makes do just that.

1. Rickety assed Saturn w/ 2 joint passing dudes.
2. Rickety assed 4runner with flapping rusting fenders.( looked like a scared duck)
3. Brand new M5 Beemer. passed me like I was standing still. I was going 85mph at the time.
4. Pontiac Grand-Am w/ two blue heads in front! I was laughling too much to note the speed I was going.
5. Clapped out Civic with the rice-appropiate bi-plane wing on rear, this was the loon that got soooo close I wanted to give him the beating his daddy should have.
Now I don't race on the interstate or any road, period. I have more life to live.

Is the Speed3 an "asshole magnet"? Thoughts anyone?

Poutine is a Canadian delicacy, especially prevalent in Quebec. Also known as an instant heart attack. Basically you take a thing of fries, add some cheese curds and smother them in gravy.

the duuuudes in the Saturn looked like they could barely afford gas and smokables, let alone deadly snack foods.

Re: Cars that "run up" on you....

im always looking at the rearview mirror and when i see someone coming up on me when im cruising in the fast lane i will move over for them, its common road cutousey. many times when i run up on someone and they dont move over ill ride em for 5 or 10 seconds and then blast by them with a "sweep move" back into the fast lane. i hate it whn i have to check up on the throttle for these guys and likewise try to assist others in this as well.

CELL PHONE expiring? im an authorized dealer for all carriers and have the BEST deals on phones. PM me for details
