earlier tonight i just washed my car and i was driving around, well i got behind a Trans Am that suddenly just took off on the shoulder around two trucks. This is the 5th time i´ve seen that. well she proceeded out of town at 70 mph, when i finally got around everyone i caught up to her at 100 mph and flew past her, then slowed down to about 90 and let her TRY to catch up, to my surprise in 5th gear, she could NOT catch back up to me when i sped back up to 100 mph....my jaw hit the floor. so i did it again, we dove in and out of traffic between 70 and 110 mph and she couldn´t catch up to me. Then when we hit the Ohio line she decided she´d had enough and just turned, no signal or anything.

I told myself i´m the biggest idiot in the world. But i´m proud of my four banger. it held off a 5.7L V8 Monster at 110 mph. I think she was embarrassed too.

So what all mods have you done? I know everyone would love to be able smoke the venerable Chevy 350 but it takes some work be it with turbo or with some internal mods or bolting on a bottle. The 3rd gen camaros and trans am were wild rides. the 350 (5.7L for the metric folks) pushed those cars to almost 15 flat and nearly 100mph in the quarter. this was in stock trim. 240 horsepower was about the average for those. Let us know so we can all put the blue oval out front.

yeah what did you do to your car? My buddy had one with the ws6 package and they push out around 330 horses with no mods. Are you sure it was a trans am? I do know the power of the scort but I kinda find it hard to belive that a trans am couldn´´t out run you. Sorry man!

I swear the only thing i´ve done to my car is put in 2000 dollars in repairs when the timing belt snapped. Either she held back or there was something wrong with that 5.7L. All i know is she couldn´t catch up to me at 110 mph.

I think she probably was just smart enough not to go that speed on public roads....still she was driving like an idiot too. take it to the track. You will get a lot more respect.

I know i was being an idiot, but if she´s going to be stupid enough to fly by people on the shoulder and then do 100+ in a 55, she should be just dumb enough to let me screw with her.

Oh and the nearest track is over an hour away. i don´t have the time or money to drive all the way up to Elkhart.

My Dad owns a Firebird Formula, and I know those cars damn well. I´m sorry, and this is no offense to your Scort, but there is no way she couldn´t catch up. My Dad´s car has a 6-Speed, and at 110 mph with a 5.7, V8, and depending on the year has about 285 hp or higher. She had to have been holding back.

I know she was holding back. it´s obvious. but i don´t give a shit. It´s a kill, and it´s going down in my book because she had the audacity (however you spell it) to fly around people like that on the shoulder, and then not continue the stupidity with someone who wants to? come on. if you have a car like that and you do what she did then you´re just askin for an idiot like myself to screw with you! heh

Thanks siragan.

And another thing, why would you hold back against a 4 banger Escort GT? Especially when you´re driving a 5.7L 310 hp Trans AM? These things smoke Mustang GTs! Yet she wouldn´t race ME??? That doesn´t make any sense.

that could be a good point too. She might have just not known how to drive it. But you are right it is a kill and I would mark it down as such. maybe you got lucky maybe it was a fake but it was a kill amd I won´t doubt you on it!!!! Scort Power!!!!!!

Yeah u could have been pulling on her for alittle. You have to remember that if the TA was automatic 2nd gear probadly does around 90mph. So she was in that RPM range of where 3rd gear was just starting and i know for a fact that those cars don´t pull til higher RPMs.

I own an ´89 with a 305 (it´s def not stock) and even the stock 6 cyl Firebirds would be a good match for my ´97 scort.
Are you sure its a 350? Did you stop it and check under the hood?
Hey, keep in mind that in ´82, you could get a 4 cylinder in the Firebird.
Something tells me it wasn´t a 350.

No, I´m sure it was at least a 95-up Trans Am, Yes, I saw it, it said Trans Am, it was exactly like every other Trans Am, Dark green, twin tailpipes, tinted windows, and a blonde driver from Ohio. What else do I have to repeat? Oh, yeah, it was a Tans Am. It said Trans Am on the doors. I can tell the difference between Trans Am´s and Firebirds from the 80s and 90s...it was definitely from the mid 90s.

Neah Trance Ams are crup. I smoke one. Ohh actually he smoked himself. Looked like this engine was on fire. One of those boys. Who will slap everything that can be bolt on. And wonder why the hell his car is smoking like a mistuned diesel.
