    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.
    I usually only mess with the left lane if there's slow dingbats in the way.

    I feel like doing that a lot. I'll do almost that but without the lights, I'll come up and pass someone on the right and its just me and them and then when they don't get over I'll slow down and get behind them and they'll move and I'll pass and get on with my life.

    :cool:

    :D Should of given her a ticket.

    yes HER lol




    I'm amazed at how people have no clue what's going on around them. Driving a steel bullet is not the time for a total lack of situational awareness. Maybe I'm just paranoid but my eyes are on my mirrors all the time.

    When I drive a van without a rear view I feel like I'm missing something :laugh:

    I could care less....somehow I'm top 20 in per for the whole site. If this per thing actually deducted points I sure as hell wouldn't be with all the neg I get for my unbiased comments :rolleyes: :D

    I would just ask that if you give pos/neg you leave your name. Heck when I leave neg I put a post in the thread stating "-1" and why I did so.

    3 or more lanes..I'll stay in the middle unless passing.

    2 lanes..depends, if it's a long stretch between exits I'll stay right. Otherwise I'll go left but only if I'm prepared to go with the flow of traffic. If that happens to be too fast for me I'll stay right.

    Got stuck behind 2 slow MOFO’s in the left lain today. one was doing 10 under the posted speed limit, and other was going 15 under. one was on a 4 lane state high way other was just on a 4 lane side road. I had to pass both in the right lane after flashing my lights a few times, and gave both the middle finger.

    Did they move over after you used obscene hand gestures at them?

    Idk i got back in the left lane to pass a slow person in the slow lane. and went on my way.

    anyways the one car was driving way to slow and should have been pulled over if their was an officer around. Tn has a low on driving to slow (i think it’s 10 under the posted speed limit) for no reason, and blocking the flow of traffic.

    Primarily, though not in every case, Oklahomans don't know how to drive. They cruise in the left lane, don't move over, text and talk on the phone more than if they were sitting on their couch at home, and pull out in front of on coming cars without paying attention, etc.

    Oh, speed limits don't usually matter here. Everyone drives slow.

    Don't get me started on if a single rain drop falls out of the sky...or heaven forbid, when it ices.

    This drives me nuts! Especially where I live, everyone just cruises in the passing lane, going 60-65... I mean WTF... I guess some people just don't give a dam about others, or they are too dumb to know better.
