Not even sure what it was, but I won.

I know it was silver, it was a car, it looked foreign, maybe some kind of mazda or nissan. He was driving like an idiot, seemed intentional, 21mph in a 40mph zone gets my blood boiling, especially on a clear day and no reason to do so. So, we get to a straight section, and I decide I'm passing, not thinking he would care. He romped on it, had my girl in the truck with me, and she was laughing at him. Mind you, I'm in a 1987 F250 standard cab 4x4, T19 4spd, 6.9l with an ailing ATS 088 turbo, 3" downpipe to 4" exhaust. I could see the nose of his car drifting (slowly) from the front of the passenger side window to the rear, at which point I hit 4th, skinny pedal as far down as I could push it, and he was behind me. I don't know if he got scared, or if I legitimately took out a car, but I thought it was pretty impressive. My boost gauge only ever peaked about 7psi. If you see my other thread in the 6.9 and 7.3 IDI section, you'll see why. But, I thought it was a fun story to share. I certainly wished we'd have had the video camera along that day, because I'd definitely have it on youtube.
