Look out on the road, it´s a slug, it´s a sloth, no it´s Supra Wuss.
So here´s the story. I come upon and intersection and this Supra with a whale tail turns left into my dirrection of traffic. After he turns I proceed on through the intersection and up next to him. I then start to pass him a bit, but he speeds up to stay one inch infront of me. Then he slows down then launches past me. Th whole tim I am thinking why is this guy in a Supra feel threatened buy an Escort with no front bumper a cherry bomb sticking out the side, and a bunch of stickers on the window. Anyway, we come to another stop sign, but a cop drives by from the left, so I am not about to try to launch on him. We pull away from the stop sign and he gets ahead of me a bit, but I catch up. The next intersection is a light, so he slows waaay down as if he is waiting for it to turn red, so I slow down too and it turns red. He pulls up next to me and the other light turns yellow so he creeps forward, and I rev to about 3000 RPM. I know he hears me revving because my exhaust is pointing right at his passanger door. OUr light turns green and either I give my Scort a lot less credit than it deserves or he wussed out as soon as he heard my tires squel. Maybe not a physical kill, but I´m going for points on a technicality and calling it a mental kill.

RIGHT ON. Mesa/Phx area has some pretty hardcore supra´s. My friend and I were in his 3000GT VR4 and were doing a good buck-20 down the 10 to Tucson and we came upon a pack of supra´s. At 120, one pulled away from us like MAD. When we finally caught up to the one in the front, he had a tech time of 9.8 and when we asked he said he was putting out about 900 horse, when he was not on the bottle.

it was AWESOME.

Supra´s are some tricked out cars. anyone who has one has done something to it. I subscribe to this magazine called sport compact car (yeah it´s an import mag) and they just had an article about three brothers from Texas with 3 almost identical Supras, all pushing out at least 500 horsepower. I was drooling, alot. Here i am hoping to make 250 flywheel horses on my scort when i rebuild it, and they´re doing twice that, easily...and without even rebuilding their engines.

It´s not that the guy in the Supra felt threatened by your car, it´s just that he apparently has something to prove but keeps getting his ass kicked by bigger cars. I´ll give you the credit cause i would myself, that was a mental kill.

No, he was threatened I tell you. All the stickers on my back window make my car hella fast. He was scared. J/k Speaking of bigger cars, My first thought when he launched on me was "Damn I wish I had my Mustang." Then he´d really have something to be scared of. Not that the Scort isn´t a bad ass specimen of Blue Oval power.
