Default whats with civic drivers?

Whats with civic drivers thinking they drive a porsche because they intake and exhaust and some big rims? I drive a 2003 Ford Lightning with 12psi of boost, chipped, bassani exhaust and it makes about 440hp. I was coming back from work today when i guy in his 20's with a civic starts pacing me on the highway. I gave it a bit of gas so he could hear it wind up a bit and give him a clue but he seriously wanted to race. its not even worth the gas. And its not only civics but neons, preludes, integras, and so on. I know my trucks not the fastest thing out there but i feel like a boxer knocking out a retarded kid with these tuner cars. Anyone else have these honda cars where they live?did the questions about the baby even seem legit 'ferret'? i dont have a baby you homo or a T/A

I guess he was just trying to brag just like you are doing now about your pickup..And you know the civic would win ,,you would run out of gas before the finish line..:0http://www.photocarshowplus.com

it may be hondas' racing pedigree makes them think that their 'tricked out' car can outrun a serious piece of machinery. We have the same problem with BMW drivers in the uk, they take the slogan- the ultimate driving machine- a bit too seriously

well being a 21 year old male, i can say it's in the blood. I don't drive a civic; i have a 2004 impreza wrx wagon (yea, it's a wagon, but it's quick). I love to modify my car.It has to be something about the thrill of either going fast with someone else or watching someone go fast, its not about the actual WINNING, although that is great, too.For example, a guy in a 2.5 RS pulled up to me the other day, edging me on by throttling the car, so I looked at them, shifted into 3rd and stepped on it...they did too, but couldn't keep up with the turbocharged 2.0 :-) . anyway, after the "race" they put their hands up and shouted in excitement...who cares if they lost, they just got to see a wrx full throttle on the highway at 100 mph!

I have one CiviC crazy driver at homeMy hubby drives CiviC at work(courier ) that car has manual transmission so he is ready to rase everything that moving on the road even old lady with the walker on the sidewalkSo I guess there is something about CiviC.In my opinion it's not what you driving it's more about if you have skills.

I know a few of those guys. They seem to forget that trucks like yours are in a different class. I'm sure that there are a few Civics that could beat your truck...... but not without BIG $$$ invested, and most of those guys don't race like that. It's not going to go away, so try and ignore it.....?

I know what you're talking about, these kids with their 4 bangers and their "short ram" intakes, APC filters, and coffee can exhaust believe their cars will run 12's when in fact most don't even run 15's- 99.9% of them are pathetic! I've ran several in my 02 Silverado (when it still had the 4.8L [bolt-ons, nitrous]) and have never lost- their local hero with a NSX wouldn't run me (and it's a legit car) after seeing his ricer following fall to a pickup truck. I only sprayed one of the cars, a turbo DSM Talon running 20lbs boost (he also thought he could beat a stock C5 Vette (automatic) and he was WRONG!).Hey "My dad is a millionaire":Go and get one of the exotics your daddy sells and I'll show you what the a** end of a Chevy truck looks like- at least til about 140 or 150. And my vehicle only cost me $18,000 brand new! How stupid would I be then?

In another posting you said you had a black Trans Am with the WS6 package. Is this all in your dreams?
