Default 06 LTZ 3.9 VS 2013 Camaro SS

Last night coming home I pulled out onto the main drag through town, which has a speed limit of 30, obviously I was going 40 instead cuz 30 is the rearview I see these bright xenon's coming up and they switch to the lane next to me, pull up and match speed. I look over and its a new(er) black Camaro SS, completely blacked out, high tail spoiler, aftermarket exhaust, lowered...and he drops it into neutral and revs the engine at thinking, "you seriously wanna race a v6 Monte Carlo and youre driving that??" There was no way I was gonna lower myself to losing on purpose so I just kept driving and eventually he got bored and roared away...really nice car, but I can imagine the guy driving it had more money than brains

Hi `Aaron,
Some owner's have more power then `sense, but I think he may have been surprised by the power of a 3.9L 242 HP Chevy V-6....

I'm not saying that you could beat him, but he is really only a few seconds faster + he doesn't have any room in his back seat for his friends or 4 `fun

I drove Spaces 06 LT3 & I was impressed with the Power 4>Sure...

You were wise not 2 race on the highway (But, I would've well maybe no > I would've (LOL)

*^above pic of Space's LT3 when Space was using this account (It was way faster then his 05
LT with the 3.8L > I liked both of his Monte's...
