RE: Humble beetle

Back in the era of the muscle cars I had a Camaro with a 427 highly modified, I used to keep several sets of pinion and ring gear of different ratios and quickly change them for the occasion, one night I encountered a Beetle that would whip me in the short run, impressive, since it was the only car ever to do that to me.

A couple of years ago I was cruising along the main Blvd in my new Porsche when this guy came along me with his VW Beetle, his car would jump a 40 yard dash like shot from a sling shot in fractions of a second, he was going along the Blvd picking on the other cars and nobody would accept a challenge, like I said, he finally spotted me and came along, that was a scruffy looking Bug but my memory quickly went back in time and I knew what were they capable off so I ignored him, I am older now so I take embarrassment a little harder.

After a while he left the area, maybe to some other part of town, my guess is that he was known because nobody would accept his invitation.
