55 vs. Jag
I was coming home from golf Saturday, and took residence in the HOV lane doing about 80. I looked at the rear view and saw a brand new Jag on my tail...really close. I gave it a minute to see what he was up to. He had ample opportunity to pass, but didn't. So, top up, air on (it was 115) I punched it. He immediately followed suit.
We went from 80 to 130 plus very quickly. I knew there would be no real winner in this type of challenge, so I monitored distance. We started at 80 with him 5 feet from my rear bumper. At 130, he was 3 car lengths back. Moving closer to 140 and he was losing ground...maybe 5 to 6 car lengths.
At that point, I realized anything more would be more foolish than what had already occurred. I slowly let off the pedal. He was clearly pissed. He finally did grab another lane and passed by my passenger door pretty close. Even with tinted glass I could see the stunned and upset look on his face.
I don't know what model Jag this was. I have a mental picture (mostly from my rear view!) and will check the Jag website tomorrow. Dual performance exhaust, wide stance, silver color, temp plates, beefy tires and that crappy vagina-looking air intake up front.
Oh, and I almost had a hole-in-one about an hour before this kill. It was a good morning.
