I love my WK2!!!

On the way home from the grocery store, this guy in his "pimped out ride" with no exhaust decides he wanted to race. Well long story short I beat him while not even flooring it and my jeep was just as loud, but it was real power.I love it!

I had the same thing happen yesterday, went to pass a mazda miata with a fart can muffler, and he floored it. Needless to say I followed suit and blew by him like he was standing still. I think I hit 106mph. Haha love the extra horses of the V8.

I hate it when people want to race you when they have a car not worth racing.

It's funny I had a LTZ Tahoe and no one wanted to race, then I get my Jeep and everyone wants to.

Until recently the fastest 0-60 (3.8 seconds) was a '65 Pontiac.

Hi from Downunder. I did the very same in Brisbane yesterday only in my new 3.0 Diesel. Should have seen his face. I reckon he headed straight home and on the net to find out what these wolves in sheeps clothing are capable of
