    Question What would you do?

    Had the Cobra out, last night, for one last joy ride before J comes to pick it up next week. Note, I live in the middle of nowhere, one and a quarter mile north of Carefree Highway. For the first mile of 24th street there are no homes thanks to Government State Trust Land. So being the level headed guy I am I decide to open her up. To do this I will need to pass a redneck Cheby truck. Turn off Carefree Hwy going north on 24th street, I verify no oncoming traffic and proceed to pass said truck at WOT. I don't let up and see the truck vanish in my mirror. As I approach the cattle guard, approximately one mile up the road, I ease off the throttle and begin to break, bringing my car's speed to the legal limit. Cross the cow trap and proceed the next quarter mile to my dirt alley way turn off. I take it real easy down the dirt path, as it is not kind to my car, and notice someone has turned behind me. As I turn in my driveway I see the redneck truck pull up to the driveway and the look on this lady's face could kill. I lean out my window and get a scolding like a three year old. What would you do?

    or or just

    I would laugh and tell her to have a nice day. It is not illegal to pass someone.

    She was pissed because I probably went by her at 70+ and proceeded to about 140.

    Guy buying my Cobra. He is from Wisconsin and should pick it up either the first or second of August. I will be telling Jason about the sight as soon as we meet.

    Mehhh

    It happens. Take it with a grain of salt. My last good ass chewing from a concerned motorist was actually quite comical, and in hindsight, also quite desrerved.

    Here's what I'd do/have done:

    Lean out the window and say "As a concerned motorist, write down my plate number. The next time you see me pass you and speed off, feel free to turn me in."

    -Thanks for your time and concern granny. Good luck changing the rest of the world.

    That's funny.



    You could have listened to her rant, then say "you're absolutely right"
    then do a Brake stand burn out for about 30 seconds and take off down the road.
