The Cavalier Killer has struck again!!

I was just comin home from a friends house and I was on the highway as this older Cavalier flew by me. I played my cool and kept it on cruise at 73 whilest I was still on this stretch of highway (traffic purposes) and let him get past me and go off on his own. But there's a spur around my city called I469 with rarely any traffic or cops at 12 at night. So I hit the cruise button to accelerate and caught up to him, I was tailling (not right up on him though) him up the onramp, I think he was tryin to accelerate, but he kept understeering.... it was funny. Anyway, we got onto 469 and at that point I dropped to 3rd and gunned it. 70, 80, 85...zipped right past him...that's when he started to accelerate...so I kept on it..90..92, shift to 4th, floor it...95, 99, 101, 110...at this point I began to gain from him in a hurry. I get onto the mainstraight before the big big curve and i slowed to 85, at which point he flies around me. So I drop to 3rd again and gun it, shift to fourth, 105 mph I pass him, he slams on the brakes after the corner and heads for the nearest exit, so I slow to 73, set the cruise and i was on my way...I thought cool. I killed him and he's had enough, or that was his exit. wrong! I happened to look back and he had taken the offramp, and then got right back on the onramp. I thought... he wants me to kill him again? So I let him get up and around in front of me then i drop it to 3rd & gun it again. shift to fourth, 105 mph I get right up behind him and switch lanes, he tries to cut me off by driving down the center, so I continued to accelerate and he finally slides over and i pass him doing 110 mph. 3 kills, 1 Cavalier. Damn I love my Escort.

I gotta say I'm gonna give him some major credit though, the first time i gunned it around him he was riding my butt until 100 mph. I love late nights on highways. :wink:

Good kill james. I wish I could find some people to race. I haven't had a good race in a while. I'm getting restless.

While noting that this topic was and still is for James's excellent and very entertaining kill, I'd like to respond to major's and other people's criticisms of body kits and stuff by saying that I really like them. Whether you lower it, put on body kits, throw altezza's on it, get z3 fenders, put a rice wing on it, get stickers, whatever you do to it, I like it. Whether you wanna call it rice or not I don't care. I like interesting looking cars whether they can go fast or not. So I say, go for the rice!! ;p That's just my two cents. BTW I like faster cars better. ;p

What i said wasn't criticism......what i said was when people put body kits on there cars they think they have race cars. Body kits don't make a car faster...........if anything it makes it slower. Yeah i think body kits look great and i'm planing on putting one on mine later down the road but when i do i'm not going to pretend it's something it's not...................

I respect your opinon. However *I FEEL THAT* altezzas, wings and stickers do nothing for the appearance of a car.

~Why would you take a red car and throw white in the taillamps??? To me, it destroys the look of the car.
~stickers? if you use the product, I'm all for it. However I will never put stickers on my car. (don't want someone to know I have a bottle of Nitrous in my trunk, let alone my stereo.)
~Wings? We drive cars utilizing Front wheel drive people... our cars can't get past 120 mph (for the most part), you don't need one. but if you want one, it's your car and your money.
~Z3 fenders...don't see many of these around. They give a unique look and are probably lighter than the stock quarter panels. To me it's too much work though... you have to cut out the welds under the hood to put on Z3s.
~Body Kits? go for it. I plan on kitting my car with the laser front bumper/grille/headlights and the onderground side skirts and rear bumper. However, I agree with Zeemax from a long long time ago. it should accentuate the look of the car and not just start throwing body lines in every which way direction...

I see more than my share of civics, accords, cavliers, etc. that have been riced out and they think the car is faster. I have actually talked to these guys (I work in a tobacco shop at night)
here is the normal conversation

ME: "so what did ya do to make more power?"
THEM: "the body kit, the wing, the wheels, fiberglass racing seat, and a momo steering wheel."
ME: "no, I mean for power"
THEM: "that's it"
ME: "oh"

I like it even more when they ask to race my chevelle. Cause ya know those cars are weigh a lot. yep, and I got the engine to back it up too.

Speaking of cavilears (<----Spelling?) I was on my way home with this kid in his mustang from the indiana dunes. We were driving along when a cavilear pulls up next to us on the high way and stars talking shit so the kid im with floors it and takes off. The cavilear pulls back up and looks at us and then the moron proceedes to neutral drop it. His wheels chirp and sparks start flying out from under his car! Something broke off and is now draging along on the highway. lol The guy quickly pulled to the far left lane away from us. It was one of the funniest thing i have seen in a while. :p

Just thought of something. maybe i'm in a cynical mood right now at 1:30 am on this fine friday night...but I just have to say this.

When I get enough cash saved up all at once I'm going all out to kit my car. It's going to be a truly, 100% unique kitted Escort.

1. Laser Front headlights $340/set (www.corksport.com)
2. Laser grille $50 (www.corksport.com)
3. Laser front Bumper $don't know (Ebay maybe??)
4. Laser front lower lip $105 (www.corksport.com)
5. Onderground side skirts $296 (www.onderground-design.com)
6. Onderground rear bumper $422 (www.onderground-design.com)
7. Spydar dual snorkel hood $379 (www.spydarauto.com)**
8. Spydar ram Air hood scoop $379 (www.spydarauto.com)**

**Note: I can't decide which one I like best, the dual snorkel or the ram air scoop. :?

So in total I will spend roughly $1592+the front bumper cost+import taxes and whatnot+shipping and handling. So, I'm lookin at roughly what? $2000/2500 dollars? For NO performance gains at all. But you meant people who think their cars are fast because of the kits didn't you? :wink: I promise, I will only think my car is fast because of my built GT-x engine which WILL propel my car to 13.5 at least once in the quarter mile :wink: :D :D
