...when you said people try to race you at every light! I havent had this many street race challenges since I had the M3

So far, it seems like kids in sports cars, and guys in either Maximas or BMWs have been the most aggressive. Ive never been much into street racing, so I just kinda wave them off when they peel off. But still, its funny how this car brings out the speedracer in people

The funniest thing that happened to me was about three days after I got the car. Some blond thing with kids in the back (no seatbelts) tried to bait me with an old Tercel. I laughed. She actually kept waiting for me at lights and revving the engine. If she'd lost it, she could have killed those kids.
I am still amused at the Hondas with the clear tail assemblies on them. Seems like the owners of those cars can't stop staring at my IS. Jealous, eh?

OH yeah, I got those looks too. Its kinda funny actually. I like it even better when Jai was driving. People would pull up to the light and check her out. It was funny because she would turn and stare back if it was a chick, but she would smile and flirt if it was a guy. Just picture a car full of guys going crazy over a blonde in a black IS who's flirting

For more on knobs, search previous conversations. We got a little carried away. Hey, you, HYPERMKIV, enough already!

I don't get very much racing attention in my Supra, but my old 3000GT VR-4 used to get A LOT of attention! It had 18 inch Antera rims and was lowered, was quite a looker in the metallic cherry red (was repainted)... It was the '92 with all the unneeded faux brake ducts everywhere.. I remember one night driving down Pacific ave. in Glendale and having 4 race challenges within 10 blocks..haha, Got challenged by an M3, an M-Coupe, a Porsche 911, and a Viper RT/10...Would have all been close except for maybe the Viper...

LOL. Thats what I thought back before I met her. When we were in school, he used always talk about "Jai" but in my mind I was thinking "JAY"-as in guy. Forgive me for saying this Jus, but, she is ALL WOMAN

Yea you do get a lot of races. So does my brother...he has a 98 Prelude w/ a T3/T4 Turbonetics Turbo on it w/ a new paint job and he doesn't even get as many races as I do. The weird thing is...when my dad drives his 360 Modena...no one wants to race. Me and my dad even lined up with a Viper...whats with that?
