I thought 350zs were fast

Ya i know they really aren't that fast compared to what a tuned truck can do but this is a pretty good story.

I was on my way home from the girls house and i told myself i was going to take it east and try to keep the mileage up which i've actually been doing pretty good at lately. But anyways i'm just cruising along and i get behind this 350z and a couple other cars that are going slower. So i stay back about 3-4 truck lengths not to worried about the slow cars as i'm not in any hurry. Well all but one car in front of the Z turned off and he starts getting all up on this guys azz. I hate tailgaters so much so when the font car was signaling to turn i ran up on the Z and got right on his butt.

Now let me tell you about the road we were on. Its about a 5 mile stretch of winding road. Most cars are only doing about 35-40mph through most of it.

Well the slow car turned off right at the start of the really winding part and he floored it. Now i am totally stock which makes this even better. Once my turbo spooled i was right on him. I thought for sure once we hit the sharper turns i was going to lose him. But once i caught him through the first i knew i had him. Pretty much the whole way up the hill i was no more than 2 trucks back and sometime about a hood length back. What surprised me even more was that there is about a half mile stretch of straight road on the mountain before it hit some more turns and i was even able to stay right with him on that.

Once we finally caught up to some more slow cars which didn't happen til the end of the road i just followed him all the way into town until we got to where there two lanes but he wouldn't get back up next to me. I wanted so bad to see the look on his face.

I don't think my truck did too bad for being totally stock. Probably helps a little that i drive that road like twice a day but still its a sports car vs a big *** truck.

that Z may of had a load in his pants when he seen your truck on his azz all at once.I have to put on the country music with some of the people out here after seeing them drive some times just to calm down .but I love to smoke them at the light or on the freeway when they decide to be a tail gator.2000 lbs against 9300+lbs is so sweet when you school them.

Ya i'm usually a pretty calm person in general. Its not like i'm i slow driver as you can tell. Haha. But people driving stupid just pisses me off. And i think tailgating is my biggest pet peve. I've been going 65 in a 55 and people get on my azz i'll slow down to 30 and won't let them pass when they try. But ya that guy in the Z was pretty stupid. I'm actually kinda glad he didn't want to play in town. Seeing as we passed a cop on main st. Lol.
