Default 3 Monte's showdown lol

It wasn't necessarily a fair race but i took the lead most of the time, i was on a 3 lane residential road stopped on a red light and oddly enough an 04ish intimidator stops beside me on one side and maybe 3 seconds later a dale Earnhardt jr. Pulls aside me on the other lane. For the hell off it i wanted to take off hard on green and apparently they did too, soon as it turned green i stomped on the gas and i hooked immediately they kept spinning tires, thanks to Goodyear AQUATRED III BSW tires i have they got amazing traction on wet pavement since it was soaking wet at the time.

I kept in the lead till about 80mph when i let go, 2 seconds later they both fly by me maybe both doing a 100 a piece tied neck n' neck. Down the road on another light the driver of the intimdator asked if i was turbo'd lol i told him i got a stock 3400, he laughed so hard and rolled up his window???

So that was the first and prolly the last race ill ever condemn in my monte, i baby my car & i dont like to abuse it. Fun within a limit none the less

Man thats awesome. I wish I was there in the JG so we could have a 4 wide Nascar battle. I've never raced another Monte. I find the Monte owners around here just don't really care. Last summer one guy in a beautiful black 07 Monte was cruising down the freeway and i caught up to him at a red light and gave him a and he did a slight nod but other then that no passion in his car. Im like wtf man? Ya know.

P.S It's all about the winter Nordic tires where I live at this time of year.

I've never raced another Monte (or anyone for that matter), but I did get a beep and a thumbs up from another 6th gen I passed in the city, as well as a 4th gen that I saw back near home.

haa! sounds awesome
I've never raced another monte, but I did do a little burnout show-off with a kid I know with a beautiful yellow 04 ss supercharged. He got his tuned, downsized pulley & intake.
Had a couple of pulls together but that was it...too many cars :P

ha ha ha, that sounds awesome, i only know of a few people down here who appreciate the cars we have. i have not babied mine, i destroyed it, but it held tough. i have had to learn a bit. but i raced a couple of diffrent cars, never a Monte. Older folks seem to be the only ones who have them over here. but to have the guy laugh, that was funny. good pull!
