VW golf diesel versus Convertabile Mustang GT
Ok, anyone that knows about the older vw diesels, they have 52 hp, not a speed demon in the furthest stretch of imagination. I have one with rallye lights on the front. looks kinda tough in a vw lover sort of way. While coming through town last week when the weather was around 50 out, I passed by a convertible mustang gt convertible. He didn't like getting passed by a vw, so he passed me, no big deal, a yugo could do that easy enough. Well He managed to make a bad choice and got behind a line of cars and I just chugged by in the right lane. he swooped out and got behind me and rode the back bumper all the way to the next light, well ...... if you rev the snot out of my old diesel, it can pretty much fill an intersection with black sooty smoke, so .... down goes the go pedal, he can't back up, a truck is behind him, his top is down and the black diesel smoke is just spewing from my vw diesel exhaust pipe, I can see him coughing in the rearview mirror, waving his hand like he would actually keep the smoke from his open gt 'stang. He got around me after the light, paced me a bit like he wanted to race and then just tore off down the road while I putt putt along thinking, thats so impressive, he just beat a car that has as much hp as a big lawn tractor. Wonder how long it took him to clean the soot particules out of his mustang .... :mrgreen:
