I have to give the guy props for trying to have some fun driving a mini van. I almost fall asleep driving my wife's Dart.

I had a regular Mustang convertible try me a few days ago with his kids in the car seats in the back, weirdo.

Run a 2013 v6 mustang and see what happens.

Make most mustangs look silly on an AutoX course.

I'm assuming it was a 2013 v6, had cardboard dealer plates and no GT or higher badging.

Likely he just wanted to see and hear the Abarth in action. I do it to cool cars just to get them to roll into it, then give a thumbs up if I catch back up with them.

Or he could be an idiot like the fart pipe Honda that tried me in my '07 GT500, sad strange little man.

Had an RDX Turbo challenge me the other day. He beat me to the next light by a half a car length, but in fairness I didn't know we were racing until I heard him chirp off. Also this was on a road with no sidewalks for pedestrians and no other cars around. While still illegal and somewhat dangerous, I think the conditions were as ideal as they could be for safety.

Sienna is pretty spritely for a minivan in a straight line, hit a curve and it just slows like it hit molasses because it rolls like a gator on a pig.

Today I got tire-burn-challenged by an early 2000s Plymouth Voyager. And I don't even have an Abarth.

I had a black McClaren riding my rear in some freeway congestion last night. I could tell it was a McClaren by the headlights. I punched the sport button and at the first clearing I wedged into the left lane and mashed the throttle. Got the backfire and my Abarth took off and kept pulling strong until about 75mph. The McClaren clearly didn't expect the breakout because it took him about 3-4 seconds to catch up. When he did he paused alongside for a second - I punched the throttle again just for sound effects, and he took off, seemed like 75 to over 100+ in the blink of an eye.

I think he paused to see what the heck kinda car just did that. Not that the Abarth could rival a McClaren in any fathomable category, but the point was that I was having as much fun as he was in a car that costs 1/10 the price of the McClaren. And for the record, I wasn't racing - street racing is dumb - I've seen too many people get Killed from it.

Were they foggy and full of condensation?
I've seen (2) F1's in the wild, both of which had at least one condensation filled headlight.

I was mesmerized on the way to work this morning by a Scion TC - the left rear tailight was about 3/4 full of water. Slosh, slosh...

Run a 2013 v6 mustang and see what happens.

With the top speed of a Chevy cavalier, probably similar outcome
