Default Interesting Race

I was on I4 on my way back from Orlando last night when I looked in my reir view mirror to see an HHR dogging me... I was in the fast lane doing about 85 and he was just right there. I changed lanes figuring he wanted to go by me, but he didn't, he changed lanes with me... I looked again and realized, to my horror, that it was no regular HHR. It was an HHR SS. 260 HP... Thats 90 more than me, plus on the highway, his turbo is already spooling. I knew right then I had no chance, but i decided to toy with him a bit. I threw it in fourth and clipped it up to a hundred miles an hour and passed a couple of cars and, surprise surprise, he was still on me. There was a clump of traffic ahead, loosely packed but there were cars in every lane. I zipped in and out of the cars for a bit with him following me closely (nothing unsafe, I promise) eventually I just dropped back down to 85 and let him go, and go he did. That thing took of like a bat outta hell!

Haven't seen a SS on the street, yet. My modded SRT-4 would crush it. I do like them, though. In '09 they are coming out with a SS Panel version.

I don't doubt that! The panel version will be pretty cool. I think that HHRs look good, but I don't like the interior. It's sad that I have the only car in my family that COULDN'T beat the HHR SS.

333.458 You had fun, nobody got hurt
352.125 That doesnt mean you don't have a fast car, it means you need to make it faster.
367.147 HHR are gross. Much more brickshaped than the PT.

A friend of mine has a white panel and the strange thing is that he's already looking for rear seats for it. It's a very nice vehicle, although I really like my 'Vert's interior much better.

I don't like them at all! Too much of a clone...I don't like clones....also, I think they are a poor job of a pt look-a-like. I would have torn him up, if I was there...

I will never forget coming from the country (Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas!!!) back to Houston and this BMW M (3 series) was speeding...he passed me and I went and caught him and passed him and led him for quite a while...we did this, switching about four or five times....driving at speeds around 120mph (no other cars around)...Shugga Plum shifted out AGAIN at 100mph...I think he was quite surprised. The thing is, once he let me pass him, it was like he had a hard time catching up to me. Again, I bought Shugga Plum used, and it already has exterior mods, so I wouldn't be surprised what mods it has under the hood! IT definitely has something a little extra than 215 hp!

Crewzin...yes, I know, I deserved a ticket that day, it was very irresponsible.

But him and I both learned something that day

It's all fun and games until a car full of innocent people lie dead in the ditch.

Take it to a track next time.
