I was headed home on the freeway and a Civic started buzzing around me.

I have an unknown old aftermarket CAI and an old APEXi exhaust that might be the N1, but it was put on the car in 1998 so I'm not sure. It's pretty loud, but I love the way it sounds.

He must have heard my exhaust and that sparked his interest. His civic looked stock except 10k HID head lights, a really bright license plate light, and an aftermarket exhaust not sure what kind.

I was in a playful mood, just got my 120k mile service from Honda, so I decided to introduce him to VTEC.

Now, I have an automatic transmission. I'm not generally looking to race, but like I said I was feeling playful and frankly he didn't look that intimidating.

I let him get a good ways ahead of me and then I started accelerating. I wasn't pushing it hard at all because it's a new car and I don't know the limits. I was still going pretty fast, and hit 2 nice long VTEC strides.

Even though it's an auto I have a good feel for the transmission and know the best way to gain speed without overworking the transmission.

This got him buzzing around me again. I was next to the fast lane and he came up beside me in the fast lane. I have tinted windows but I tried to give him a big fun-loving smile. I forgot to mention it is sort of raining, just drizzling but I didn't want to roll down my window to get a better look at the guy.

After 30 seconds of being neck in neck I decided to blast off and see if he would bite. I was ahead by so much I'm not sure if he even tried. I realized the guy was all bark and no bite.

He started switching lanes and then when he was about to exit he hit the gas. I stayed back a bit and slowed down and then did another burst of speed and VTEC power. I caught up to him just as he was exiting.

I had a lot of fun! I am a :bow:VTEC:revrev: junky.

I usually cruise on the highway at 75-80. Tegs pull up all the time n try to get me to go. Funny when I'm in fifth and just increase my stride and they dump to third or fourth to try to keep up and beat on their car. Makes me smile.
