got pursued by 20 barinas and swifts
(this happened on the tuggeranong parkway between kambah and weston turnoff a few weeks ago(canberra)).
(this story is prob kinda similar to other ricer stories except that there's 20 of them).
me and some mates were driving back (VP commodore)from a soccer match when we see a line of cars on the side of the road, all small girl cars, chrome wheels so my mate in front passenger seat screams out "You should be ashamed of yourselves".
we didn't think much would happen but before u know it, we look behind and they all move onto the road, weaving through all the traffic. We are telling my mate to keep his mouth shut when we approach a magna driving about 20km below speed limit so we decide to conventiently align the car with the magna and drive at the same speed, the rice master(the guy with the most outragous body kit) tailgates us beeping, flashing lights and serving(we insulted his people, he's pissed off) with the rest of the barinas behind all crampt up trying to get a piece of the action. The magna drives turns off and leaves room for the master ricer to drive next to us, so he looks and us and then floors it. Now we were expecting a demonstration of "high performance motoring", but the jellybean moves slowly into the distance, accompanyed by that annoying sound of an exhaust that sounds like a blow fly, followed by the "woop pish". So my mate floors it, i look at the speedo and then look to the side and he's already 30 meters behind(no mods to the vp). We gain some more distance, now we're in civic, turn off at the ANU and lose them quite easily. We can still see them though, 1 after the other, like little ducklings crossing a road (except the ugly duckling was leading in this case), waisting the world's free oxygen just to make some stupid sound from a movie.
one of my other friends doesn't know much about cars but knows how pathetic the ricers can be.
moral of the story ? don't buy chromies and rice gear and that will leave u enough money for V8 fuel ecomony wise
