That’s right buddy I remember your license plate number. I also remember your red dodge SRT-8. It sticks out in my mind for a few reasons. At first I thought it was a decent car. I say decent because I’m not a big fan of late model Chrysler engineering for many reasons that I won’t get into. Your's has a big redeeming quality most don't. “It’s got a Hemi!”
However, the reason your car sticks out in my mind is because you cut me off about 4 times in a 2 ½ mile stretch! You were weaving in and out of traffic. Racing from one read light to red light. It was a little ridiculous.
We get it…You’ve got a fast car.
Now I could understand if you were a teenager and you dad let you take out the “muscle” car. I’d give you a break for hot rodding it a bit. But dude….I hate to be the one to tell you this….You’re old. I mean if you can to relive your “glory days” you don’t have to drive like a jerk to everyone else around you. It’s a little uncalled for.
My Dad pulls out his 64 Impala and hot rod’s it all the time…but you won’t see him weaving in and out of traffic cutting people off. That’s just stupid. Maybe it’s because his car is actually worth something, but that’s just my opinion.
Bottom line, if you want to drive like an idiot, find a safe place to do it. The NHRA and SCCA both have events all the time where you can be stupid, test the limits of you car and only endanger yourself. Go and have a ball.
Oh and one last piece of advice. Unless you’re a cop, the 70’s porn star stash and aviator sunglasses went out of style before I was born.
It feels good to be back!
