The Little Hemi That Could(n't)

So, we'll start with the latest one. The folks came over and we went out to breakfast this morning. On the way back About 5 miles from my exit I come across an '08 Hemi with 2 younger guys in it. Brand new truck, tag in the window, paper dealer plates still on it. I get next to him and the driver looks over and gives me an a-hole kinda smile, the passenger waves at us, they laugh and the hemi "speeds" away. I chuckle to myself and decide to catch up, they're doing about 80 and trying to run away. It ain't happening, I get next to them, laugh...give 'em a and I'm off. I run to about 90 - 95 and start to slow back down. I pass my exit and go "eh, we'll get off on sunrise" when I see the "little hemi that could" planning a fly by. I can't let it happen, I start to speed up a lil when he get to the tailgate and MASH IT!!! Leaving these morons one last time, here comes my exit, I slow down to get off and they speed past honking and flipping us off. My dad says "what the hell was that?" my mom's in the front seat laughing "some guys were trying to race *nickname deleted*"

A friend of mine just got an '08 with the smaller V8, he's trying to convince it that it's fast...he should know the truth though, he used to drive a PSD

sounds like my freightliner FL60 back home vs a dodge 1500, probably the 4.7L. we were at a stoplight and the passenger gives me the throttle it signal, so i gave it about half throttle and it sounded pretty good, they rev the piss out of it and i laughed a little, then the other light went to yellow, I put the truck in 2nd and they tried to tranny drop as the light turned green, it just bogged down and took off, I dumped it, and started catching eaton gears and started to pass in 4th gear, 5th they were about a car length behind and finally 6th wasted them as I got up to about 60. I took it to the gov at 90+ on the on ramp... speedo only goes to 85. then I fired up the 3 12" JBLs in the backseat to some 3 days grace

Nice Kill!!! That section of Hwy 50 between Sunrise and Hazel is a nice straight flat stretch to open it up on. I have to say I have seen the triple digits on that freeway.

we were coming the other way between bradshaw and sunrise. The fuzz likes to hideout heading up toward Hazel

I ran a guy in a mustang on that stretch between hazel and sunrise...after I hit 95 I forgot I was racing, he was behind me somewhere

i can only imagine how embarrassing that nickname mustve been. I would say nice kill, but you have had so many kills its not worth it anymore. Some better advice would be to stop playing with kids. Its not cool anymore Michael, i dont care if you say that you're just snuggling...

Out of this giant post, why is it that the "nickname deleted" part is the most interesting to me??

Inquiring minds want to know!!

Really though, nice kill. For some reason, I never get put in a position to race someone.
