Not making another thread but I have another kill (in this case killed) story.

I spotted one of my dad's buddies on the road in his 1979 Pontiac Trans Am with a big block 400 in it. The car itself is a rust bucket as he invested all the money on performance internals. He was ahead of me on the hi-way. (I was coming home from work about 2 AM). I end up next to him along the way and he revs hard at me. I of course didn't want to race. My car didn't stand a chance at all. He revs again. I figure since he is my father's friend and this was all in good fun. (He knew my car wasn't gonna stand a chance. He just always picks on me. Been doing it for 19 years) We slow down from 65 to 60 and he honks at me three times and we floor it. He pulls ahead right off the bat and I never gain up to him. He disappears as I take the exit and head home.

Performance internals!!???

NO WAI!

Do you seriously want me to list everything he put on my car? The only thing stock on the engine is the block itself. Leave it at that.

Tibron James?

Also my car just kinda makes a loud angry rushing air noise with no distinguishable exhaust note.

I'm ok with this.

Don't worry, once we're all forced by the world Government to drive electric cars, there will be none of this "exhaust note" talk.

"My car makes sort of a low humming and this dude's is like a high pitched whining!"

If all cars go electric, I'm going to get the meatiest, chunkiest mud tires I can find.

Ain't no way I'm driving ANYTHING that makes no noise at all.
