Respected Cars and Driving Style
Ok following on from the Car Type = Respect thread posted by andyz4000, it has got me thinking about something on the same lines.
How does everyone driving with these so called respected cars. I mean surely some of us get that burst of energy to suddenly drive what other motorists percieve as silly.
Heres one instance that recently happened to me. Was driving on the Great Western Hwy home on sunday after the car show decided to enjoy the car on my home hwy so i over take cars to get ahead of a bunch of cars, then i caught up to another bunch of cars it was an 80km/h zone the P plater in a "Super Responsive(tm)" model corona was doing a touch under 80km/h in the over taking lane, so i gained on her quite quickly so i flashed my headlights to say "hey i'm going pretty quick here" anyway she didn't move and going up hill a quick shift to 4th i over took on the left lane and done my striderlanechange(tm) she flashed her lights at me and i put the hazzard on to project the message of "whats yr problem can you at least move".
But when i got home and thought about it i feel pretty stupid doing that and given that she was on her P's she probably didn't have the thinking to move to the left so i sortof felt bad about it.
To the girl P Plater i over took badly in Faulconbridge/Linden "apologies".
Anyone else notice one tends to drive abit more enthusiastically at times in these what public percieve as respected cars.
