    Default What is it with Mustang guys?

    I really want to know. Every time I'm out in the 'vette there are at least 1-2 Mustang guys who want to race, It's never other 'vette guys, Firebirds, Camaros or even Chargers or Challengers. Even this morning I was driving my daily driver (Toyota) and I saw a yellow C4 going down the road and sure enough, there was a Mustang trying to challenge him. The only other car that tried to take me on was one Porsche....all the rest were Mustangs. I have a very clean driving record and desire to keep it that way, plus I'm at an age that I'm over all that. I just wave the Mustangs on, but it is annoying! Have any of you guys noticed this behavior from Mustang drivers too?

    They don't really have a purpose,
    But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    I see the same thing when i am out in the vette. on the freeway or not. a mustang is trying to get close to me to race. i guess their ego is big until a vette makes it little again.

    You think you've got it bad, try driving around with this on the back of your car!

    If a guy showed up at work boasting that he raced a Toyota on a way to work and won no one would give a dam, on the other hand if he said he beet a Corvette the answer would be wow your car is fast. Guess to beet a Corvette is a kind of Holly Grail for most. They all won't to try if it does not cost them anything, they expect to loose but if they win it's all about bragging wrights. Just relax and drive your own speed, you have nothing to prove to anyone and if they really wont to see your Vette run fast make them pay

    i have layed down the law a time or two. i guess everyone who does not have a vette wants to race you just to say they did. just last week i raced an old cuda. sweet car, sounded awsome, but he never had a chance. i guess im old enuff to know, but young enuff not to care!!! there is no better feeling than leavin some guy in the dust and seeing his face at the next light!

    I hear ya, but uh, I had this habit once upon a time of getting tickets for that. A hopped up 1979 Trans Am and later a Toyota Supra are to blame! I like my insurance rates where they are now...or a I need a good radar detector.
