I was driving to a friend's party last night, Claire had a drink before we left, so i drove to the house. As we pulled up to a Traffic light a Volvo S60 T5 pulled along side, he must of seen our tail pipes and thougth hed challenge me. I looked over, i dont know if he knew what it was or not, but he indicated to race so i did, i floored it, and despite him getting a head start, he dropped a ball when he hit the wrong gear and i just sailed past! We stopped to fill up along the same road and he pulled in behind us, he aked me what was under the bonnet (the hood) i told him with pride it was a 4.6 litre N* V8 :D he smiled and looked inside, said what a nice car it was, and left in his little Volvo.... :cool2:

Those T5 Volvo's can actually scoot pretty well. If he hadn't missed a gear, you might have found your work cut out for you.
I think he would of beaten me actually. his motor can do 0-60 in six seconds according to some figures i found and then lost. It was actually a nice car, im partial to Volvos, i like them. His looked very nice though.

I Actually Raced A 06 Dts, Versus A 0? Acura Tl & 02 Dts. All 3 Of Us Were At A Traffic Light, And We Knew We Were Waiting For The Change In Color. All I'm Gonna Say Is That The Older Dts Was The Winner----i Didn't Know The Tl Was That Damn Quick. I Felt Bad & Turned Off. We Raced For About 1 Mile---couldn't Believe How Bad I Lost!!!!!!!

Yes, I have a DTS. On paper he should be able to beat me to 60, not sure about a roll. But he was startled by the Corsa in his ear and figured he'd play safe than sorry. I guess he didn't want to take the chance that I'd done something else to the car to make it faster (which, of course, I haven't).

Yep, that's all it is. The Corsa exhaust gives the DTS quite an attitude, even though it's all bark and very little bite. It's ironic because the DTS is A LOT louder than the GN, which actually IS fast (by some measures).

Ouch, Volvos are nice cars, if he is management it would of likely been an S80, a wagon itwould be a V70, or if it was small it would have been the S60 mentioned here, unless it was REALLY small and the S40/V50. THeyre all very nice cars, i have owned a few Volvos inclusing the gloriously beautiful C70 Coupe.

S80 that was it. he just bought two new cars and already wrecked the one. im not too sure what the other one is, an SUV of some sort (not a Volvo). he likes my Cadillac and that is the next vehicle he is getting is what he told me. a CTS. i got to drive my friends dad's V yesterday. man i love driving that thing. didnt race no one though. no one wanted to race me! i revved some guy off in a Z but he wouldnt go.

Craig, "Honey, i just built more storage space for cars. It would be a waste of that money if I dont buy any cars for it. I just have to get a Fleetwood and a Mercedes and a few Bentleys and I'll be done. Please baby puhhlease."

wait, i thought you were getting the Phaeton instead of the Jag? what the hell happened there? well hang on think of it like this, your getting rid of the ESV and possibly the Rover (is that the 2002?) so that drops you to 8 add all three and you got room for 1 more! FREAKIN SWEET, ANOTHER FLEETWOOD!!!:stirpot:

LOL if i was going to get a Jag, i would have to get the R, and i loved the Jag, but i couldnt cope with a base model,. so im waiting until December and gettting an R too.

The Rovers a 1995, 114 GTa, very very small car........

THe ESV is making way for a Bentley Arnage, my uncles giving me £65k (he owes me money so its all going to be in that 65) and im getting an arnage for it, plus i still want that 600 Benz, im considering both a Fleetwood and a BEnz
