Rodder on Rodder animosity??

Pulling out of the parking lot at college, there is always another souped up car revving their engine. I guess thats to try and say their car is better than mine; as i turn to follow them out of the parking area they "get on it" and thats when im dumbfounded. Although there are some nice cars up there the ones that try to act like their "badder" than mine sound as if the car is sick.
Whats with that?? Arent Rodders suppose to share secrets and compliment one another on the road. I thought that was proper etiquette.
Then again, maybe its a cry for help............
(bored today)

That is why I LOVE my 455! I don't advertise it. I don't have it loud, but it will walk most others to the sidelines. My favorite is the low slung "sports cars" on the highway. Swerving through traffic, flashing lights, on the cell phone. The thrill of never letting them pass because they just ain't fast enough or have the throttle responce at 70.

When we go to shows there are always some guys who drive around the show area and 'rev it up'- acting like they have something better- we call them 'Street Squirrels' - most times they sound like crap and backfire, and will never think of entering the show area, even to look, but I guess, whatever gets you off... sometimes when you have a clean, good sounding ride some guy with a beat- up-old-three-colored-has-been-wantta-be-muscle-car comes up behind you and acts like he's gonna 'run you'... tries to pass and leaves a cloud of smoke... we just laugh...knowing most of them don't have the education to change their own oil...

When I used to ride in my camaro (ahh the good old days...), I could never help but push in the clutch and give a good rap on the motor when someone worthy drove by or was sitting next to me. I pretty much got the same reaction every time. It was a head jerking back motion followed by a big smile and a thumbs up. Damn I can't wait to get back on the road....
