It's still just a skittle

So I ran to the hardware store earlier today. Upon leaving, I saw a red SRT 4 neon parked two spaces from my mustang, with its owner about to get in.

I said to him, "Nice lookin neon (not in a sarcastic or ignorant tone)," "done anything to it?"

He replies "Eh, not really, not that I have to, ****ty stangs like yours couldn't keep up with me anyways, stock or not."

WTF, I didn't say anything against him or his car. I guess along with signing for your SRT 4, you also have to sign another statement saying you'll be an absolute cocksucking ignorant dickhead.

Yes, he probably is faster than my 6, in fact I'm sure he is, but he's dead even, if not slower than a stock 2v GT, I think they share a similar 1/4 mile time. With a few supporting mods, a power adder, and a solid tune, I could match those stats, while staying below the cost of his neon.

And this wasn't a newer stage 3 or anything, this was an 04 with stock exhaust (didnt sound loud at all when he left)

IDK, just thought I'd vent...shouldn't get worked up, it's just a ****in skittle...

Ha. You have alot more patience than I do. If that had been me there would have been a race and then an immidiate beatdown no matter what the outcome was. Don't worry about him he's a *****.

Re: It's still just a skittle

i know a guy that autox's an srt4, really nice guy, helped me with my tires i have now, pretty much the guy i ask if i have questions at the track

i bet if you woulda challenged him to a race he woulda wimped out, either that or ask you to drive like an hour outa your way. i'm not sure, but aren't srt4's around the same price as an evo? for some reason i thought they were close, but i could be way wrong...

Re: It's still just a skittle

for some reason i thought they were a lot more expensive... even if the gt is a tad slower, id still rather have a mustang than some little turbo 4 banger ne day

edit: actually it has another thing going for it, it has enough room for grown people in the back. not really sure that is a good or bad thing though now that i think about it... might actually be a bad thing, just more people to laugh at you when you blow up the thing trying to out run a slightly modded gt

Yah, in the end, its still a dodge neon. To me its just like a SHO, a taurus with bolt ons.

That's alright, maybe I'll see him again in the near future when I have my termi...then I'll take him out to my favorite extra wide backroad that has a perfect 1420 stretch with level ditches, wide flats and no houses.

Show what a so called "****stang" can do
