Hey All

had an intersting drive to work at 6.00am this morning

Just cruising along the road when i see in front of me a car with Left hand drive plastered all over it!


So I drove up behind it and saw it was a Chevy, rather than holden Lumina SS.

So at the 1st set of lights we pulled up together and on the green I let rip in 1st gear only...... just enough to get this guys interest!!!

Well did I what, with me on the left and him on the right we where face to face at the next lights and I hear he was revving that Chevy hard!

So on the Green again I slowly took first and planted it hard when he had a good car length on me, straight upto 6 grand in revs in 1st and second and by the time I was changing into third he was a good 2 lengths behind.....

3rd set of lights and he was fumming and I was more happy to let rip again, this time we both smoked em in 1st but I get the first grip and sling shot it in front of him and easly out ran him

4th set of lights, he wouldnt even pull upto to me, but remained a full length behind, even with me reversing he just moved back!!!

I supose he just couldnt beleive an XR badged car could put him too shame!!!

If only he knew!!
:p :p :p :p :p :p

Top performance mate, i'm guessing since it's export quality they will beef the LS1 engine up abit.

Going from our fang down Epping Rd.. you're looking at around 5.0 - 5.5 for 0-100 and around 13.0 for the 400..

Pharrken fast in laymans terms.. trust me..

Heard a story of a "Lumina SS" in the US that chased and caught a new Corvette. The cop that posted it, can't remember where now, reckoned the only thing funnier then the 'vette dude fuming about getting stopped by a 4 door was telling him that his 'wierd old aussie Falcon' was even faster! I think the cop was from Montana.

Laminge, you gotta be happy about that mate, good thing for us Minges has made a few holden people not to underestimate a Ford. :D :D :D

Hmmm if he can beat a car that ran down a Corvette, no wnder his dream car is a Dodge Viper.
