    Twas the night before Christmas and caught at the light,
    Was a torch red Corvette and no cops in sight.
    I will try, I will try, I will try with this small motor,
    To beat this Corvette, it ain't got no blower.
    As the light goes green and I pull like no joke,
    The Corvette erupts in clouds of tire smoke.
    Now Smasher, now Rev-ver, now Stroker, now Blitzin,
    These are the names of my four VTEC pistons.
    Racing ahead I'm the star of the action,
    But I know I'm in trouble when Corvette gets traction.
    Grabbing second, I hear the RPM's sing,
    My mirror is blocked by my shopping kart wing.
    I now hear the roar of the big monster gaining,
    All I can do is keeping the four-banger straining.
    In a second, the shock wave hits with a blast,
    And my stickers go flying, now a thing of the past.
    Don't bother with third, cause now it's too late,
    Just try to act cool, like you can relate.
    Looking up at the 4 tail lights as they get smaller,
    The driver backs off just to give me a holler,
    "You can't win them all," he says in fling,
    "You may not win any, in that silly thing,"
    I smiled and revved as he pulled out of sight,
    With more stickers tomorrow, i'll give him a fight!

    A couple of years ago I wrote "Twas the night before Christmas " CK5 style. I can't remember the name of the post, though.

    Reminds me of when I beat my buddy on NFS Underground. Z06 versus a Skyline. He could drift like snow in a blizzard, but couldnt catch the Vette! Silly ricer, thought he could play with the BIG BOYS!:D

    I will say that 99.9999% of the ricers out there are just posers, but that one .0001% are actually fast. I'll give you an example.

    My buddy and I were leaving Bay City, on the one way that turns into the highway (US-10). The road is 3 lanes wide, with stoplights every mile or so. We were in my '88 Camaro with a very built 400 SBC, 700R4 with 2500rom stall converter, 4.10's and a good posi, with a set of BFG G-Force tires (250/50R16). This car regularly runs high 10's low 11's at the drag stip @124mph.

    Were sitting at a stop light and this Evo pulls up next to us. Has the usual stickers, gutted interior (should have been a clue now that I think about it), and as I found out later, a fart can on the back. He revs his engine and points forward, signaling he wants to race. I say to my friend, "this should be no problem." Light turns green and we both take off. I imedetly start spining my tires and he starts pulling away. I'm thinking to myself, "as soon as I hook up I'll blow right by this d-bag," and once I hooked up I did catch up and blow by him. The next light in front of us turns yellow so we both start slowing down and come to a stop. Again he revs his engine and points forward. I say to my friend, "I guess he wants to loose again." Light turns green, we both take off and once again he gets the better holeshot (I launced a little better this time). I pass him, but when I look in my mirror I see him gaining on me. He starts comming real close, then the next light turns yellow. I tap my brakes twice, signaling I'm shutting it down. We come to a stop, and again he revs and points forward. Now by this time were at the last light before the highway. After this one is open road. Light turns green, we both take off. I launced awesome this time. Actually in front of him from the start. At around 105mph I look in my mirriors and didn't see him. I figured he stopped and hit one of the side streets. Turns out he was in my blind spot, he was actually keeping up with us...not only that he was passing us! I ran it up to 130mph then shut it down. He had passed us around 115mph. He was still pulling away when I shut it down. My buddy and I look at eachother like that just didn't happen. That guy was just toying with us back at the lights.

    I later found out through another friend that the Evo had a moster turbo, and a bunch of motor work done. Along with a full roll cage (tucked very close to the interior metal work). I think if we had lined up at the drag strip, he may have even gotten me there too.
