The other day my buddy and I were out riding around in my Escort. We pulled up to the lights beside a super clean black contour SVT on a long stretch of 2 lane road. I admit i always like those cars so while waiting for the light im looking over at it and notice its an old woman driving (looked around ~70) She then looked at my car and started reving up that v6. I could tell it wasnt stock because i have driven one of those cars before and that exhaust sound was far from stock. Well anyways the light turned green and she spun the tires a little and my buddy said i HAD to go for it so i did :lol: I tried my best to catch up to grandma in her SVT but there was just no way i could do it. Finally I passed her at about 90-95 she obviously let off by that speed and i look over again as i pass and she had the biggest smile on her face :? I have to say that was the first time i have ever come across an older woman who wants to race and she sure did know how to drive that car :lol: .

okay, you guys think an exhaust is cool for a grandma to have, i shit you guys not, my grandmother wants me to put a turbo kit and water/meth injection on her 95 civic. not for the power as her main reason but because they can cultivate their own ethanol. tell me that's not awesome. my 68yr. old grandma driving her little 5 spd. water/meth inj. turbo civic. lmao

A couple yrs ago I managed to tease an older woman into racing me in my old 93 probe gt. She had about an '04 monte SS. She absolutly KILLED me the first time.

I didnt think she would get on it, being that I teased her for about 4 or 5 miles of highway and she never did more than smile at me. I literally gave her a couple blo byes and I even ran a lap around her in the three lanes we had..

We did get a second chance light that I BEGGED for my 2nd chance, she gave it to me and I got her by mid 3rd gear. After I let out of it, she sped passed me, smile and waved, and made a U-turn.

Im not threadjacking, just agreeing that old woman still have some need for a good kick!!

My mother when i was 17 use to drive my car (at the time she was 54) because i didn't have my license yet. Well my brother always needed a ride to work and she took my car one time. He told me she raced this dude. The lane she was in ended a little down the road and she smoked him lol. At the time my car was a 91 GT lowered on intrax springs with the weapon R intake, painted black gt fanblades, and the pacesetter cat back. Lol when my brother told me what she did.

I have to break it to you.... but a Smart car is the exact opposite of fast.

19 second quarter mile does not a quite fast car make.

the EGT is faster than the civic though. smart cars just aren't that smart, they just aren't, I'd rather mod out an escort LX to get 45-50 mpg than drive a smart car!

I have a story kind of like yours. Back when I was around 14 my mom had just got a 97 Taurus wagon with the 200hp Duratec V6. When we first got it this car would fly. So, we pull up to a light and there was a 96 Monte Carlo SS next to us with 4 young guys in it. Just for fun my mom (who had alot of gray hair at the time) floored it and left them in the dust. She stopped accelerating once she hit the speed limit and about 10 sec later the Monte Carlo flew by and we both burst out laughing. I guess then couldn't stand getting beaten off the line by a gray haired woman in a light blue station wagon.
