Ok so I was at the gas station as usual :cry: and just got done and I hear this screeching sound and a motor reving so I look up and there is a convertable V-8 Mustang w/ 30 day tags. I'm not sure of the year.
Had four people in it. He was hot rodding around like a kid w/ a new toy so Naturally I made it a point to follow him from the gas station. :twisted: He took off real fast at the light and turned left. I followed and then it happened. The light turned red and we both pulled up. I locked em in just in case and the light turned green and he punched it and so did I. To his dismay( and a little disbelief on my part) the TiTan hung w/ the mustang neck and neck until we approached 80 and I let off and then so did he. I have to admit I was impressed that the TiTan hung w/ the Mustang. He looked over with dismay w/ a grin on his face and turned off at the next light.
I'd call it a draw w/ the Convertable V-8 Mustang... Not bad for a apple to hang w/ a orange.

I know I can't help myself having a damm near stock 4wd that does argueable 6's 0 to 60 and high 14's in 1/4...

P.S. Consider the late 90's Mustang G.T.'s not even the slower convertable's only ran in the 6's 0 to 60 and 15's in the 1/4.

Sweet, just think what the results would have been if your truck was as light as the mustang, he'd be sucking lemons 8O Nissan sure has a great engine in these trucks.

What's up DeesT, I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about what you were going to reply. :roll: :) say something like Sweet, just think if you would have gotten a ticket for drag racing and reckless driving... you'd be sucking lemons when you paid the fine and your insurance went up a 100$ a month... :( :cry: Thanks for not slamming me. :oops: :D

I have had my share of tickets in the past before my current occupation, thats for sure :oops: If a cop tells ya they havent done something somewhat similar to what you and the mustang did, i'd bet he/she would be telling a lie. Some really dont, but there are some that do :twisted:, but just dont get caught. :wink: Ya dont have to worry about any slammin fin,i'm not the slammin type 8)

I've said it on here once before, but my Titan smoke checked a new Dodge Durango. Endurance trumps a Hemi. Gotta love that.

Outstanding, Just like that commercial w/ the new Durango where the dad tells his son, there's only one word you need to know son, "Endurance."

Last week I refused to give up a lane to a newer Corvette.... Impressive, we got up to 95 on a beautiful straight piece of four lane country road.... He seemed content to keep his lane after all.... Rolling start from about 40....
I love this truck. I am not saying that it will beat a corvette in the quarter, but having a truck that gets the attention of this fellow was quite pleasing for me and rather humbeling for him I am sure :wink: .

The guys I really like to jack with are the young guys with the Civics, Accords, Neons, etc... with a large exhaust on them. You know the kind, the guys who are vying for the star role in the next Fast and The Furious? It's kind of funny the way they mysteriously pull off after they've been put to shame by a truck. My brother has the Dodge 1500/Hemi. It's a nice truck, but after driving both, I can honestly say the Endurance engine feels stronger.

Titan, Ram, Straight road, Green light, cop = ticket

This happened about 3 months after I had my Titan. I was on the main drag in town one Friday after going to the bank. A black ext. cab Dodge ram w/Hemi pulls up next to me at the light revving his motor. So, I rolled down the window and this is the conversation that followed:

Dodge: How much juice you got in that thing?
Me: 305, you?
Dodge: Enough to smoke your rice-rocket, wanna run em?
Me: Sure if you feel lucky.
Dodge: REV!! REV!! REV!! REV!!

Much to Dodge dudes dismay I noticed Decatur Citys finnest sitting at the opposite red-light. Light turns green, Rams tires turn smokey, cops lights turn blue. I horse laughed him on the way back through. :lol: I think I could have took him though.

About a month ago, I had some high schoolers pull up next to me at a traffic light and start reving a Civic with the 6" diam. Pep Boys exhaust mod. My window was down and I look over (and way down to the ground) at the Civic and the passenger says, "Let's go, let's do it daddy-oh" I look at him and ask if he sees a big number painted on the side of my truck. The kid starts laughing. Then I say you're also mistaken, because I'm not your dad, but I do know your driver's dad because I recognize this Honda and live down the street from him and maybe I should have a talk with his dad about how his son is street racing. Suddenly, the Civic stops reving, light turns green and nobody is racing. Fact is, I didn't know who the kid was or where he lived.

That's a good one...with him spinning unless you did it wouldn't have even been close Good situational awareness as far as lawman on your part. Sometimes in those cases it's easy to get tunnel vision...

"Big # on the side." :lol: way to throw some authority around Caltitan. Maybe you just saved his license and possibly someone getting hurt or killed even...ok next story

Run in w/ drunk driver in a cop car or so I thought

Running down the hyway tonight and notice a second generation white Chevy Caprice Classic w/ dual exhaust. You know the Police Cruser's they use to have before they went to the Crown Vic's.

Guy's driving real aggressive, thought it was the law at first. Got a better look and determined that it wasn't due to his driving behavior. Guy was swerving all over the road and allmost ran myself and another car off the road. I sped up to acess the situation to determine whether to call the law to report a drunk driver. Guy notices me keeping up w/ him so whatever reason he decides to punch it. Let me first off say the Caprice Classic's were chosen to be police Crusers for a reason. They are powerfull road cruiser's that can hang w/ the best of them. From 80 to 115 I gained on him ever so slightly enough to get his plate # and I found myself trailing this guy. After I got his # I droped back to a safe distance and followed him as he is swerving all over the place until the police finially arrived into the picture and the officer comming from the opposite direction seeing me flashing my brights and seeing his swerving cut his lights on and I broke off and turned around. Looking back I never noticed the guy pulling over and finially lost sight and passed two more cruisers flying in there direction. Looking back should I have chased this guy at those speeds. Depends on how you look at it. The officer that first showed up was comming as I said from the oppisite direction and we were doing 90 plus when we passed him. I was flashing my brights off and on while I was on the phone to 911 so the Police would reconize us...anyway his drunk azz got dealt w/ and I maybe saved someones life or his tonight. I realize I broke laws chasing him but that was a risk I was willing to take... Cops weren't concerned w/ me, just him...
