Kill Story

Err.. maybe its a reverse kill story? you decide.

So i was driving on the freeway like a normal person, making my way over to a freeway interchange... This black lexus gs400 flies in from behind from nowhere, tailgates me, blinks his lights, and makes it over to my side and REVS his engine, all at freeway speeds... I'm thinking WTF...

So now we're side by side on the interchange between freeways. Its a left hand sweeper. He blasts past me after he revs again... then slams on his brakes to make it through the sweeper with traffic. As he blast past me, I notice his side mirror wasn't set right and couldn't see me in his blind spot... I'm thinking WTF... I continue at normal speeds and pass him because traffic in my lane was lighter. I stick out my tongue at him with my left hand up, thumb on my nose and waving my fingers. Yeah, he got the message. He immediately scoops right behind me. My exit is coming up so I signal over. He couldn't let it go and follows me off.

We end up side by side at the traffic light at the bottom of the offramp. His car is all tinted out, lowered with rims and massive camber. He revs at me again. I look over. He doesn't look back, not that i can tell anyways, just revs again. I roll down my window and turn to him. I stretch my ankle a bit and my car rolls forward just a bit. He revs again but doesn't look at me and inches up even again. Yeah, he's thinking "its on baby".

Green light goes. He lets it rip. Exhaust screaming. Peels out like smokey and the bandit and lays rubber half way through the intersection. I can an Arista Badge on the back of his car. I think to myself, WTF is an Arista? He makes it pass the intersection, now about 100-150 yards ahead of me. On the right side is a shopping center. A motorcycle cop pulls out of the shopping center parking lot and chases him down.

I'm still at the light.. thinking Friggin Moron. While at the light, my V1 was beeping intermittently with strong laser pressence. I thought I roll down my window to tell the poor fool but oh well...

So I finally come up about 1 mile down the road where the cop had pulled mister Arista over. I slow down and the cop looks at me and then at him. Mr Arista was pissed as hell and flips me off. The cop looks back at me and gives me a thumbs up! just like this:

so that was one of my more recent kill stories... i got a couple more... all true stories...

am i official to bf now?

I didn't know they had sharks with frigging laser beams in the OC?

And I was just there today visiting a client. Hmm, I guess I shouldn't ignore the laser warnings on my V1 in OC then.

That was one of the best own4d stories.

I believe Josh is right, Aristo is basically a GS...

This reminded me about my incident with my truck -vs- the hemi Magnum R/T. If that guy ever found me, I think he'd be more pissed...I'd better get to my cardio kickboxing class...cuz u never know.....

be careful out there - real kill story

a guy I worked with was racing a dude that cut him off, they had some words, and the guy pulls off the freeway. The other stops on the freeway, gets out, walks up the off-ramp hill, stands at about the drivers rear tire, and unloads his gun into the car. My co-worker was killed.

You gotta be careful - you have no idea who is out there.

Man that sux. My condolences. I agree with you and try to keep a very low profile when driving.
