Driving automobiles

Racing to the red light!

        I love driving down the city, at maybe 35, 40..keep’en around the speed
limit, when this car flies by you at about 55, races in front of you.  You
watch him pass 5 cars, swurving in and out of the left and right lanes and
ends up next to you at a light about one mile down the road.
        One time, that happened, and I saw the kid and kinda new him.  I
looked over and him and told him what a stupid moran he was.
        Now me…I have my city planned out.  When and where the light
change and what they are.  If I need to get from one end of town, reala
quick.  I use main and side streets, step on it, and end up at every green
light possible.  It’s great!

    : You’re no fun.  You most likely have a four cylinder, two valve, sludge sump
    : of an engine in a boat of a car.  BTW, what’s a "moran?"  You "new" him?
    : I’m sure YOU don’t drive like that  –YOU could be dangerous!

     hey, hold down the flames Duane. i have a four cylinder 16 valve ( how the
     hell do you have two valves, the cylinders share?)  and am lucky to get
     90hp on my civic. Point is, this is a driving newsgroup, not
     alt.speed.12-cylinder.500hp.custom-built.hot-rod.turbo-charge
     newsgroup.  

     Though this guy does need a dictionary. Then again, I prebably made a
     few mistakes on this post.  But I will answer the orig. post.  I too know
     the street light timings in my city.  I still swerve. Why, cause it’s
     fun!!! I am seldom in a car to go to point a to point B in a small
     amount of time. I usually leave well before I should just so I can cruise
     around.  It’s the fun factor in driving.  I can get into my car which
     is on the driveway, drive for 3-4 hours and never leave that damn car.
     If you want an explanation, cannot give you one I.  Try is once, the rush
     you feel, the enjoyment of seeing people flipping you off from behind,
     cutting off other cars by inches, it’s fun.  Damn, what an asshole I am!!
     NO wonder people driveway shoot.

          Whoever ends up buying Grumman can’t have them, either.

        True.  Is there one?  How about
    alt.speed.v-8.faster-than-you.custom-built….  oh, you get the idea.
