Ok, I didn´t race another car, but a guy I work with just bought an Acura RSX Type S, he seems new to the thing because he was asking about intakes and exhaust, the effects of installing these and suspension kits, etc etc. I mentioned what I had in my car and he wanted to go for a ride. Had a couple of quick blasts up and down the road. Think I impressed him cus he was grinning and saying ´wow´ and all. Now he wants to get together and talk shop/turn wrenches on his car. Always cool when a ´vintage´ Escort can impress somebody.
