Anyways, this afternoon, I was coming out of Peterborough, and if you know the area, the Parkway, which is a nice 4-lane road, merges with Highway 115.

There was this White Chevy Malibu, 2000, or 2001, with a 3100. (it had a V6 badge). I had passed them a few minutes prior so I could get around a transport truck.

I was just cruising along the 115, heading south at about 110K, when the malibu pulls up... right beside me. The guy in the back nods at me, and pulls off. I figure, what the hell. I'm gonna lose anyways.

I tromp on it, and actually managed to pull back up, and suprisingly, pass him! And then I kept going, until I hit the beautiful, beautiful speed limiter (god bless). Anyways, a 3100 with the 4-speed shoulda smoked me, right?

And if you've driven my car, you'll know that it's not exactly a rocket...

hrmm..

yeah, and the 4spd auto don't help any either...... i've got the same setup as that 'Bu, except i'm at 155hp/185fpt in a GA weighing in at the same 2700lbs as a cav...... unfortunately, on the highway these cars are made for "cruising"..... at 80km/h it goes into O/D and then if you mash the pedal it goes from O/D-4th-3rd and it takes 2 secs or so to do it....... now from a stand still it's a different story ;)
