around 2 am last night I was walking down the street to get a slurpee from the 7-11. Its a long two lane road and is very straight with about 1/2 mile between stop lights. Anyhow, the 7-11 is on the coner of one of the intercections, and as I was walking near it, I realized two cars were lined up at the light and revving their engines!!!

let me tell ya, I have see a few street races in my day but not one like this! one the near side, a ford aspire! and on the far line, a subarau brat!! now let see, combine horse power of these two machines is probably at least 100 hp! both cars were rusted and beat to crap, and the ford had taht annoying loose belt screech...whcih of ocurse added to the flavor of the race.

I kept on walking slowly, looking at them, then the moment comes, the light turns green, both cars lurch forward...

...and stalls...

now it has obviously become a race of who's car will start first again, and the subaru wins by about .5 seconds, the driver dumps the clutch and off he goes...and ford follows suit a moment later...I keep watching as they sped past me at I would say 25 mph, I kept on wathcing as their tail lights disappear into the night...looks like things were dead even...no one gaining with the subaru leading...by about 1 car lenghth, and their lights continue to slowly disappear into the night...going probably around 45 now...slowly slow, they become smaller,


it is at this point that I walked straight into a telephone pole that was about 50 yards away when I first saw the cars stage at the light...banged my head on the metal surface and now I have a bump on the side of my head...

but it was worth it, one of the funniest races I have ever seen , though I still wish they didnt take so long to get to the next light or else I would not have bumped my head...
