Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

Every time I go back to school I just can not drive anywhere without some goofball either getting on my as and revving his **** up or stop at a stop light and someone starring me down and just hauling *** right when the light turns green. This is not every once in a while this is like 3 times a day when I go back down there. Today was the wierdest act of all when some most likely 16 year old kid turned in front of me in a what I think was a civic it said vtec on the side and looked like a wierd station wagon and was wearing a flat bill hat but listening to country music and had the biggest dip in his lip and revved up the fart can stares at me then spits as he goes in front of me. He spit chew at my car luckily it was to far and windy. Thats my vent for today.

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

You don't drive a mustang if you don't want at least a little attention.

Personally if someone revs at me at a light, I rev back..

Then let them go at it, hauling ***, while you either just sit there.. or take your sweet time
They get pretty mad when you don't run them after revving back, haha

.. Though there were times in the 92 where I would let them get to ~30 MPH or so.. make sure they were still WOT (can't miss the fart cannons trying their darndest) then lay the hammer and pass them going about 20 MPH faster than them before they even hit 50.. (this would take place legally at the track, of course, never on the street)

OR i'd shift first through fifth by 30 MPH, staying under 2500 RPMs, just to see how well I'd keep up doing that haha.. It's great when they'd thought they won..

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

I like the idea involving a gun and shooting ****

I get those vtec ******** and hicks in their 30 ft ****ing chevy's doing the same thing. I just ignore them and drive normally...gas is too expensive to hot dog every light and I'm not 12. The f&f movies were just movies to me, not a lifestyle.

...and the dude sportin the flat bill hat, chew and listening to country music, doesn't surprise me at all, all kinds of characters in illinois.

Yeah, but then you'll be the ****** instigating it and wouldn't feel the need to start a thread about hating driving a prius because you get attention.

The best way to avoid having people act stupid about is to

A. Buy something no one has any interest in - Prius, smart for 2, etc
B. Don't drive like an idiot - ie quick accelerations from lights, passing people, etc.
C. Don't acknowledge their actions and let them continue on to the scene of their crash from acting a fool.
D. Walk



I've yet to have anyone act a fool to me in the cobra. I'll get a rev once in a while while driving the fox with people thinking it's a v8 due to no mufflers and the LX badges....but that's it, just a rev and they move on because, well, I don't even acknowledge it.

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

sometimes a rev is just a way to get your attention so they can wave or something~ its not always asking for a race~

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

It is here. I will just ignore em or just laugh at how stupid they are. I just didn't think that a mineral gray gt would draw much attention I thought it kinda "blends in" unlike a red or black one with a body kit and all that stuff.

Don't forget it's a v8 mustang with exhaust...anyone who has any liking towards cars notices that ****...they hear loud exhaust and think, "ooooh, I wanna race!"

I know, I just made a bad joke about prius' randomly accelerating to 100mph and then realizing you don't have the ability to stop using the traditional brake pedal.

I'm pretty sure those little vtecs are slow as hell...HOWEVER:

Should you add decals, underglo, weld-in floorpans, fart cannon mufflers, or 30 ft wings, your hp/tq ratings could jump to unimaginable amounts...we're talking near f1 racing peformance here people.

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

Hahahaha, ****. I love all the attention I get with mine, lets me know I at least did a halfway decent job piecing it together. I'd say I'll get a lot more in the upcoming weeks.

What year Z-28? If it's an earlier LT1 Z-28 you could probably take him with your mods.

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

I'm not sure what year it is. It's from the mid to late 90's I beat 1 like it last year like it but you never know, I checked stock 1/4 mile times for that vintage Z-28 and we run the the same time.

If it is before 98 its an lt1 if its a 98 it probably has oiling problems if its 99-02 you may need some mods

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

personally, i love the attention. except for the stupid ricers and 4X4s that think they got something...

but for a muscle on muscle instance, i love every minute of it. had a Charger R/T messin with me the other day. i would say who won , but the idiot didn't know how to drive so i wouldn't call it a fair race as to which vehicle was faster. he drove like a ricer

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

I definitely couldn't beat him stock, but I think I'll be OK. To bad the nearest track is 2 and a half hours away. I still can't figure out the year all I know is it's red looks like a door wedge with T-tops LOL.

If it has the black around the headlights then its lt1 and you would most likely win. If the front of it resembles a catfish then its the ls1.

Yah its got the lt1 then...if it's a 93-95 lt1 it had 275/325 at the crank, go pown him.

The 96/97's got a boost to 285 hp, but I'd say you still have him with your mods and if he's stock.

Re: Sometimes I hate driving a mustang.

Thanks for the lesson. Yeah it's the wedge I'm not to worried about him beating me. Last time I had my car on the dyno I made 302 crank hp and 355 foot pounds. I have done a few more mods since then I hope to be around 310-315 now. If we can find a safe place to run I'll tape it and try to figure out a way to post it here.
