so for new years my girlfriend wanted to go to a place called turkey run. its a litttle west of indianapolis. so we went and i had a good time with her and her friends. im on my way home in my stock tc (automatic) and im about 10 miles from my exit. this kid pulls up next to me in a zx2 escort with one of those coffee cans. now since im on the highway i had to have been going at least 80-85 mph. it is a 2 lane highway. hes about 5-6 car lengths behind a RV. he punches and comes about 3 inches from hitting the RV and cuts hard in front of me. he switches lanes again, slows, and waits for me. this guy just wants me to break him off some. now my girlfriend had been sleeping the whole way home and she decides its time to wake up and complain about how fast im going. so escort boy and i are going about 80-85 again. we both hit it. i hit about 100mph and my girlfriend skreching in my ear the whole time,"you going to kill me, i dont want to die, slow down, its not worth it" blah blah blah. so at about 100mph i let off, now granted i was about 2-3 car lenghts ahead of him and he knew he wasnt going to catch me but the race felt about 3 seconds long. i wanted him to really feel ashamed. i wanted to make him cry. the reason for this post is to share my sarrow and hopefully get some positive reinforcment from my tc brother and sisters. also this kids zx2 had some white smoke coming from the under carriage. it wasnt coming from the exhaust, possibly had some oil leaking and smoking off the engine. please tell you have had the same problem with your girlfriends so i dont feel like im the only one. thanks

no way i would have done that with my girl sitting shotgun, especially once she asked me not too.
i dont have that problem with the girlfriend, because i have too much respect for her.

but, on the topic of schooling a ford, cool.

I have been to Turkey Run State Park many times. It is ok, but when I was a kid they used to have a good size water park. Now, all they have is canoe rides. But, is a good place to go with a girl friend. The trails are also pretty long.

In fact, it was 64 degrees in Indiana today. It would have been a great day to go to Turkey Run.

Yeah, uh, I would've done the same thing as your g/f. Endangering your passenger's life is not cool.

You'd have to like crazy asians first. But we all know you got a thing for greg's mom. It's okay D... just let the gonaherpesyphilitis take over and rule your life.

well my girl is 1/2 asian (filipino) and we have been together for over three years so i dont think she is going to go anywhere. also im not a crazy driver. whats the difference between an open 2 laned highway and a 1/4 mile strip....not much. im not promoting street racing but im not totally against it. sometimes you got to let it do what it do

the difference isnt in the location, its in the decision to break triple digits in a street race with a passenger who plainly does not feel comfortable doing it.
if you lack respect for your girl, i can only imagine how little you have for other people.
i mean, we apparently must agree to disagree, but i find that behavior selfish and stupid.

I agree that no one should race when you have someone with you who does not, thats why i backed off the race and didnt go to 125mph. the main reason for the post was to share what happened with the race. its to give a chance for feedback from others who have had similar experiences. it was not to make my girlfriend sound like a buzzkill. she has every right to say something and complain when she is not comfortable. i just want to share my story. oh also not to mention she totaled my 96 talon 4 months ago when i let her borrow my car. the accident was her fault. but i guess it was all for the better since if it wasnt for her wrecking my car i would not have gotten my tc. so be aware and drive safe. i have much respect for my girl.

ok guys i have to jump in here for a sec.

i must be the only one on this forum lucky enough to have a gf like mine then. anytime someone comes by me reving the motor she flat out tells me to go get them. even when im behaving she will tap my leg and tell me to go after them. she loves the thrill of it just as much as i do.

thats why i love her.
