My town isn't called Fredneck for nothing. Since it was unusually nice out here today, I decided to take the long way home after work, 20 miles of twisty back country roads. About 5 minutes into the drive, I roll up behind this redneck moving at a snail's pace in his big Chevy pick up. This was right where the good twisties began and I was pissed. The road is two lanes with NO PASSING the entire way and I was not about to let him ruin my fun. I kept pace behind him, waiting for my chance, then after about 3 miles of waiting, I dropped it into 2nd and toasted him, quickly cutting in front since there was a turn coming up I could not see past. As I looked in the rear view, I saw dust spinning from his tires! This ass clown was chasing me! I punched it through 2 sharp turns and gained a big lead while he's flying off the road trying to keep up behind. The Z turns like a champ and I knew he'd have trouble keeping up. Up ahead, I see traffic slowing so I had to slow and this guy comes flying back up on my bumper! The road raging f*ck was obviously pissed I dusted him and was trying to mess with me. So we follow traffic all the way to the end of the road at a stop sign. I go left, he goes left. I drive another few miles until the next stop sign with a little traffic. I go right, he goes right and tears around the other cars to stay on my bumper weaving in and out. So I fly around a bend at about 80, passing about 4-5 cars, switching lanes and he's tearing through chasing me. Then, we come up on a stop light at a big intersection with like 30-40 cars. I'm thinking we're gonna get out and throw down but he just sits in his truck smiling right behind me. I was trying to decide whether or not to get out and throw down but at the same time, I was actually enjoying the chase so I decided to keep it going to see how far he'd take it. The light turns green, I punch it and change lanes, cutting off some other cars. He gets stuck in the traffic and can't get to me so I weave in front of a few more cars and separate myself a little. This is where I realized this guy was a total nut case. The road was opening up ahead and a nice long sweeper was coming but the speed limit is only 25. I hit 80 and think I've had lost him when I see this jerkoff cut in front of 3 cars, going around them in the emergency lane and riding over a curb at 60-70 mph! At this point, the back road we were on leads onto the highway with a quick right turn. As I slow down to take the turn, he catches up. I enter the highway and floor it, gaining another nice lead, only to slow down again behind more traffic. :doh: Now, I had to get over to the far left lane as I was turning left at the highway exit 1/2 mile ahead. This particular exit cuts across the oncoming 2 highway lanes so you have to be careful. I enter the exit lane at the last minute thinking he'd miss the turn, but he jumped in right behind me and we both slow down as we're approaching the cross way. Now, oncoming traffic was getting really close so I had to make the decision whether or not to cross. In a split second of hesitation, I peeled out and jump across the highway, narrowly missing getting T boned by oncoming traffic. As I look in the rear view, I see the poor redneck stuck, as an onslaught of traffic came right behind me. :nana: He wasn't going anywhere and since I only live a mile from this crossing, I didn't see him again. It's always a little nerve racking when you're being chased by a wacko, but man what a rush. :shiftdrive:

I had a few guys in a 97-ish maxima chase me once (I was in my 01' I30). Some random bullshit, so I figured this was pretty much the best excuse ever to speed legally.. and lead them along. I'd stop at a red light, wait for them to jump out of their car and run towards mine, and then nail it (so they had to then run BACK to their car to chase me). Did this a few times, and had a lot of fun with my freshly installed eibach's.. then decided to terminate the chase on the highway.. I had 227hp, and I used every last one. Topped that **** out until I couldnt see their headlights anymore.

I had an expierence like this just a few nights ago on my way home. But I can't tell if he was just racing or if he was really pissed about something. He had a turbo eclipse, I cold tell by the sound of the car it was heavily modded. At first we were just racing like normal from stop light to stop light or traffic. On an open road he probably could have taken me. Then I waved, which is normal around here, kinda like saying thanks for the fun, as I turned on my road home. He cut across three lanes and got right on my butt, and stayed glued there. So I dropped gears and took off, he was right behind me drafting. On this road there are a few mild corners which I took at about 75 and still accelling, I pulled for a bit there, and another at 80, but out of the corners he started to catch up again now going about 90. At 95 I had to slow it down cause of a stop sign. Now I go at a normal speed because I have another turn to take in about 1/2 mile. He started out on my but again but backed off a bit when I didn't punch it. So I take my corner expecting him to follow, then I was going to stop and see what was really up. But he kept striaght. So I think he may just have been racing but I have no idea. It was a rush in any case.

I should probably have given some background on why they were chasing me.. I was cruising the strip and we pass by these 2 girls, which I didnt even notice. My friends say go around, cause they were waving at us. So I go around, stop, and they sure enough start up a convo with us. Convo goes well until guy(s?) in maxima show up behind us.. when all of a sudden the girls freak out, and yell out "could you leave us alone?!!". My guess is they were little sluts hitting on guys, while waiting for their boyfriend(s?) to pick them up. When their guys showed up, they probably wanted to make it look like they didnt wave us over and that we were bothering them.. they freaked out and screamed like mid-sentence as soon as they saw the maxima. Weirdest thing ever tho..

Yeah, see.. the maxima was tinted. I had two other big guys with me in my car, and I only saw one guy (at least) in the maxima.. and he was about my size. The thought definately crossed my mind as to why a guy my size would be chasing a car with three guys in it (either he's insane or he's got somethin shiny).

Ya never know, so instead of stopping and risking my friends and my own safety, I chose to dust them. I know what kind of driver I am, but I'm not too sure of what kind of fighter I am :cheers:

That's some scary stuff! I'm more afraid of what bums like that do to my car than to me.

Unfortunately, there are crazy ppl like that everywhere.

:OMG: I had some freak chasing me (or following me) last fall. All the way to the main street in our neighborhood....I called Doug and told him I think someone is chasing or following me and he says pull into VFD #3...(there are always a handfull of guys hanging at the fire house that is a block away from our house, and since Doug is VFD w/ the sister station #1 we know them all)........I pull into the parking lot, dude pulls temporarily in behind me, I see his door open, 2 of the guys in the garage waved as I pulled in (they love Lucy) and the guy must have seen that and peeled out of the lot in a hurry............

Being a woman I get really skeeved out if someone seems to be following me. My plan (women should have plans for this) if I am close to home is to either pull into the lot at one of the 3 VFD's or one of the two PD's around here......if I am not close to home it's a matter of if I see a public works dept, either that or I would pull into a very public lot...of course the cell phone would be dialing 911......I'd rather not try to "get away" on the highway, too much risk involved, too much traffic...scary stuff...
