Am i just getting old?

Well i went to the Whoops Ass Wednesday drags at Kwinana Motorplex last night, and what a fantastic night it was. Well that was until i was 5mins from home, for the record its a 45min drive.

Coming along the Reid Hwy, cruising at the posted limit (90km/hr) minding my own business, two little immature persons, one in an EF the other in an ED come flying up behind me, being complete morons. The EF drops a gear or two, and starts reving along, wanting a race, i shake head, he swerves, acts like and idiot, and continues to do so for 20sec, i slam brakes (nearly take out the ED behind me, not that i cared) and so does he, still being an idiot. I give him the birdy, well they keep going at it.

After what seems like a few minutes, he takes off, and the ED trys me now. drops a gear, being and idiot. so i slow down to 60km/hr and cruise along, he goes off after the EF. Well lucky i had to turn off up ahead, these two idiots slowed for the red light, and started bagging it up at the lights, ready to race each other.

Well they spoilt my night something cronic. I was furious at this point, not to mention feeling rather nervous. I was worked up over this little scenario for about an hour. If i had of stopped at the lights next to one of them. I swear i would of jumped out and punched the little ****er's head in.

Its times like these i wish i was a police officer, so i could through the book at them. I know i used to rev next to people, but i would drive away within a few seconds if they didnt care of it. I wouldnt stay around for ages, trying to kill the person next to me. Also having the girlfriend in the car shits me even more.

I dont need this kind of mental abuse from idiots. I hope they crash and kill themself one day, i honestly do. And if this was anyone from the FordForums, i hope you read this, and grow up


ARGHHHHHHH, im all worked up again... So am i getting old?

don't get maturity confused with age. Some young people are very mature..and some middle age people are just as bad as 5 year olds....

had something similar happen to me about 6 months ago which i posted on here. happened on tonkin hwy and this arse wouldnt leave me alone. this clown kept at it (though not driving dangerously) for about 10 minutes. then i showed him that a vn ss v8 isnt a match for an au xr6. he left me alone after that. i dont have your patience....

Sounds pretty familiar South...

Just the other night I was heading back from a mates place down reid highway and on the 10 minute trip I had one VN speeding up and slowing down beside me for a while, I just ignored the dickhead and sat on the speed limit especially considering how often there are speed cameras down reid highway. Eventually he pissed off and the next second a little cordia turbo is alongside with his blow off valve pschhht'ing on and off.

Its times like these I see the benefits of driving my girlfriends plain ol pulsar that doesn't even get a second look from these guys.

p.s. how was Kwinana anyway, was there a decent turnout?

Hi South. Yes there are lots of dickheads around, fortunatly there mostly confined to Commodores, but it disappoints me to see there are more and more dickheads in Fords as well. You made a good choice just backing off from them, let me go ahead and be dickheads without putting you and your girlfriend at risk.

PS: Next time your at Woop Arse keep an eye out for 347 Stroker's Black ED XR8 and xf351gt's EDGT !!!!!!!! (They'll be the ones winning A whole bunch of us will be heading out there dragging next week.
