That totally sucks jack. My wife is a major hot head and she would have wanted to get out and would have kicked his door in. I hate the guys that wait till the last minute to get in the exit lane and then cuss at you for not letting them over. you should be able to just shoot them right there and move on.

Well when people are not happy with themselves they surely are not going to be happy around other people, especially people who seem to be happy and simply enjoying a ride in their car.  People, generally speaking, to me are simply angry inside (probably at themselves) and want to take it out on anyone who seems to have it together, even a little bit.
  I try to find a country road to cruise along that does not have much traffic. Impossible to do today it seems. lol However, I have found over the years if there is an A-Hole out there and there always is today, well I will find that person. LOL
  Secret I have found is to simply ignore them and let them get as far away from me as I possibly can. LOL Works for me.

Just got back from our 1,458 mile drive to southern Ore. Ran into a few Nimrods but nothing major. Mountains were not clear due to the fires, but still a nice drive. Only real problem was getting out of the way, the Sentra takes about 2 miles to get up to 65! Hope we can take the vette on the same trip later this year. I did see a yellow 70? Vette for sale in Grants Pass, very nice Wink

If I can ever sell my house, (I got it when the market was booming, paid too much for it) I am thinking of moving to Grants Pass. Hopefully within a few years. I'm tired of the big cities.

Well I think I've finally perfected this. I have a antifreeze recovery machine so I put the used antifreeze in a 2 gallons bottle. I use this to refill my  rear washer tank.  If tailgated I back off the gas flip the switch for 1-2 seconds them rev the engine & accelerate. This allows the antifreeze to accumulate in the exhaust then be blasted out in a hugh white mist. It will smoke for about 30 seconds which causes the tailgater to back off quite a bit...yesterday it was about a football field  back Grin   I am very pleased with the results, it will also work with loud rap music at a stop light.  Cheesy Since it only comes out of the rt rear exhaust it looks like something happened to the engine.
