Talking New Cadi as slow as it is ugly

My friends and I were out at an off track betting facility. About 12:30 am we decided to go to another place which required the use of the highway. Sweet, get me on the highway and watch out. Since they were driving a Chevey Malibu I kept my speed down so I do not loose them. They decided to pass me in the area where the speed traps are located. Once I passed the slow speed area I deceded to catch up to my friends. At that point, my friends were in the passing lane and they passed a Cadilac, one of those newer versions with the V8 and similar appearance or size to the GTO but only uglier. When they passed this person, they moved over to the right lane. Well the Cadilac driver wanted an easy kill so he or she took it. The Cadi passed them and then cut them off and decided to take the next exit. At that point is when I was passing both of them. I noticed in the rear view mirror that the Cadilac driver decided to get back on the highway and play catch up to me. I let it catch up (while moving at 70 mph) I could tell that this person wanted a challenge since they moved along side and started accelerating in short spirts. It did not take much to loose it in the background. At that point my exit was comming up so I slowed down. While I was manuvering around the large humps and ruts in the asphault caused by trucks on the exit ramp is when the Cadi caught up. And again palying around with a challenge. Once agian but conservitivly I proved to this driver that a Cadilac will not take a Cobra. I did not want to get a speeding ticket so I slowed down to let my friends catch up. The Cadi driver yet again attempted to challenge but this time I did not bother and he pulled ahead of me got in my lane and slowed down considerably in attempt to force me to pass. At least my friends had a chance to catch up since they were dirving a Malibu. At least I kept the speeds to a minimum (below 120), I could have easily pushed the envelope and say goodbye to the Cadi but it was worth it to repeat the "you loose agian" over and over. Sometimes it is okay to rub it in every once in a while.

good kill, really no need to beat him more than once, i could see if it was a car that was a challenge but for something like a Cadi its not worth the ticket.

Sounds like the Cadi wasn't too happy with the out-come

Oh well, hopefully he/she will learn not to mess with the Cobra

Always amazes me that someone who looses will keep trying. What was he expecting? Did he think the Cadi would grow an engine in between tries?

I was barely trying to loose him. If I thought he or she was a challenge (hard to tell who the driver was due to the dark window tint) I would have made sure the car would not keep up since there was no traffic on the highway. I had one of those thoughts in the back of my mind not to over do it. My Cobra is basically stock with the exception of the exhast, wheels, and shift quadrant. I just never got around to modding it yet.

I would expect such behavior from a young kid in a ricer, they never give up even they loose over and over and over again. Three times was enough until I ignored it. The cadi driver probably thought he or she had a chance since I kept the speed slower than normal (below 120). I get alot of people out there who enjoy hearing the full sound of my exhaust.

I personally think the new caddies look sweet...just wait for the STS-V to hit the market, it'll give a stock Cobra a run for it's money
