    Default Had a Vec right up my rear!!

    Hi all,

    Was driving home tonight, and had a Veccy-C come right up behind me getting quite close at times. Was no way I was getting drawn into a race through a housing estate we were driving through though. When we came to some traffic lights, he pulled up behind me and I looked in my rear view and he didn't look old enough to be driving!

    Made me reminisce about my old Vec a bit and how I miss it!! I know it is in good hands though!

    I've had similar on the A41 through speed camera section. I have no problem with speed, but there's a time and place for it. Thinking of de badging mine (SRi) due to numpty's wanting to race in stupid places.

    Happened to me the other day on a dual carriageway which is just full of red light cameras and speed cameras, at a red light this mondeo driver pulled out from behind me with his bluish headlights, fat alloys, big bore (noise) exhaust and pulled up along side reving his engine and grinning like a cheshire cat, so when the lights changed I just let him wheelspin and pull away....









    Did I floor it?....







    Well, yes actually I couldnt resist it this time, but only once I had let him get about 1.5 car lengths away from me then in a few seconds I was past him and when I hit 60 I was at least one car length in front of him and then I eased off.


    He didn't try again....

    Its very strange, but I dont ever get challenged when in the VXR.

    I honestly cannot remember the last time I had anything like that.

    Its either how I drive, or how the car looks, either way it doesnt seem to attract attention

    EDIT: Or maybe its because I'm not looking for it - lol

    I've got to be honest, I get less of it in my new car than I did in the Vec. But the Vec was kitted up, so it attracted the wrong kind of attention sometimes.
