So I'm driving home from SeaTac to Bham last night at around 1:00am and a heavily modded Evo (I think) pulls up my left in the HOV lane. He has the biggest goddam spoiler I have ever seen, plus visible boost gauges and I can hear the nitrous hissing. I'm seriously tempted to test him a bit, but my common sense gets the better of me. He keeps pulling ahead of me and I just keep it at a sveldt 70. Then I hear a pop and he pulls off to the side of the freeway. Confucious say: a fool and his furious nitrous are soon calling AAA... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

This I could not allow, so I literally left him in the lurch. The look on his face was priceless, as I don't think he realized that a Volvo is not just a safe car anymore... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">
