: Got ricer fly by'd by a Redline V today.

So i am on my way to work today, minding my own business as usual, lost in my thoughts about another boring day ahead of me. I glance in my rear view and see the distinct front end of a V. Not being sure if it was really a V or not i slow down to let him catch up. As he gets closer i can see that it is most definitely a redline V. The guy (prolly mid 20's) gets right behind me in traffic so i roll down my window to try and initiate some friendly V owners chat but before i have a chance he drops a gear yanks it into the left hand lane and blows by me... i throw him the friendly V sign but he doesnt acknowledge it. He then proceeds to get back into my lane and get two lanes over and turns off some side road. The redline was 100% stock. I was curious if it was any one on here... as i didnt get a chance to ask if you were a member of this forum today in traffic.

p.s. If you happen to be on this forum and you wanna play with the faster color V again we can do a 40-140 sometime on a late night adventure in mexico. :bouncy:

wow, sounds like a jerk V driver.

there's a V owner that works across the street from me... we drive the same way home, on the same highways... so quite often (like today), the two of us drove for a good 10-15 minutes, right next to each other...

i always think it must look so cool seeing two black Vs driving together :)

I agree. Sounds like the OP felt the same way, he just didn't want to say it if the other guy is a member...

Yeah, and they'd both be lucky there was a black V around to embarrass both of them.

On a side note, I "got ricer fly by'd" last week by a honda del sol with a fart can and a big H on the back window. :bigroll:

yea im 24. Im a very respectful enthusiast, and always try to say "whats up" to any other enthusiast...Gm or not....Most of the time they ignore me going about there business...its a big let down. Nothing makes me happier than when Im driving my V and I see a car that would make a good "contestant" in a 1 v 1 race......again most of the time they are too cool to get schooled.

HOLY LONGEST SENTENCE EVER BATMAN! I was purple at the end from not breathing. :hmm:

It's cool though. I knew what you meant.

I have yet to have another V acknowledge any waves or thumbs up in my town in about a half a dozen attempts.

I feel the same way... the only V owners i have actually had acknowledge my existence on the road were ones ive met through this forum. Surprisingly the Corvette community seems to be more friendly towards me on the roads (probably because they are scared of my 4 door haha).

i was driving to my buddies house, and i ran in to a redline V. it looked amazing. well he got on the side of me and we went for it. nothing crazy cuz we were on a busy street. his was all stock, all i got is exhaust. anyways, at the next light he rolls down his window and says, you gotta love these cars. gave me a big ass smile and we both gave each other a freindly thumbs up. nice feeling. he was an older man, probably in his 50's. theirs a black V here in town as well. i tried to say whats up, but this guy looks like hes in high school, no acknowledgement from him....owell.

the other day we were on or way to the river and this acura pulls up next to me. my buddy says, dude , i think he wants to race. lets just say he his car looked alright from my rear view mirror! :burn:

Gotta Love the V!!

I don't think I've seen enough V's to even talk to them. I mean I've had my car for about 4 months now and I've only seen 2 V's on the highway, neither of which I was able to talk too. I definitely would talk to another enthusiast though. I'm 22 and I'm no punk!

Lol, typically I dont like to start anything (and im on alot of boards) However I dont think I know one Vette owner that would be "scared" of your 4 door. I know what V's are capable of, believe me Ive been around fast cars for a long time. There are alot of Vette owners that dont play around, just enjoy their car, but I know plenty that love to and welcome a friendly encounter, me being one of them.

Dont take this post the wrong way, you wil run into a Vette that wants to play one time. I know if you were closer id be that Vette (lol but I hope your seriously modded ;) )

A: learn to take a joke

C: I dont want to get into a pissing contest with you however i have had my fair share of vette owners staring at my rear bumper as ive pulled away.
D: I hope before you run into me that YOU are the seriously modded one ;)

however let me emphasize that I am not tryin to start anything though... as i am a member on a lot of boards and have been around alot of fast cars. ex: Dodge Caravan!!:thumbsup:

No, sorry it wasn't a joke as you stated, but if that makes you feel good then whatever. I would put money sight unseen that my 99 Vette would run circle's around you. Im not some 20 year old kid trying to act like a hard ass, I just find it funny when people assume they are fast because someone wont race them or are "scared" of them. I dont doubt you can beat Vette's, hell regular C5's aren't that fast, but what im saying is eventually you wil find one that will hand you your ass.

That's nice that you've been around Dodge Caravans, I hear there are some fast ones :thumbsup: However im more into sportier cars and have had my fair share of fast ones, Cobra, Vette, Evo etc. Lol I'll leave you with this

I would hope your making 800whp to even stay close, because that's not just a blower on a stock motor. Now let me get back to my Dodge Caravan board, I need to find an e-bay exhaust for it, im thinking a nice dual chrome one :worship:

Lol, alot of guys buy the sale pitch they aren't really car enthusiast's. I know I wave at every Vette I see drive by, regardless if they wave back or not, same thing when im on my bike.

I can tell when someone is be sarcastic or not, and I dont think he was being, I think he was being cocky. Then I get a sarcastic reply when I said do not take offence to what I said. I can throw in a lol or a haha anywhere, so that means im joking? Look again, im not some young kid trying to start $hit, im going on 34 and have been around cars for a long time and around a bunch of different car people. Lol guess I should just stay away from the V section if everyone is going to be all offensive. Then you guys wonder why people dont wave back at you when your driving :want:

When I used to own a Vette ('69 roadster, 350/350, 4-spd) back in the day, I used to wave at all the other Vette drivers. Occasionally one wouldn't wave back, and you know what? It didn't piss me off in the slightest. Imagine that!?! :thumbsup:

Although in GM High Tech August article it said 61 year old contractor. I'm old enough without adding any years.

I know how it is when someone with just a few post's say's something to someone who has been here longer (everyone tends to jump on them) its cool though, im sure the 200 or so post's that he has more than me justify that :helpless:

Lol as for the older guys, haha only reason I mentioned my age, is I see alot of guys that are saying their in their 20's. I know there are guy's that are alot older than me here, remember im on the Vette Board as well, so when I go to shows or meets im a minority :) I was just trying to say that im not some 18 year old kid that just got his license, ive been around fast cars for a while.:helpless:

No, I dont think your an a-hole at all, and if you knew me you'd know that im actually a pretty easy going guy. I have a very good reputation on my other boards, im just not on this board often because I dont plan on modding my Escalade.
