Just had a fun time in the Mazda on the way back from the store: As I passed under the interstate, a black Mercedes was coming down the ramp. When he saw he had a clear road, he booted the Merc. I'm thinking, "OK, that's different. Usually they come to a full stop at the "yield" sign. I booted the Speed and began to reel him in! When I got close enough to read the trunk badge, it was an E550! He tapped his brakes (maybe I "came out of nowhere") and then kicked it again, two puffs of smoke from the pipes. I stayed in 4th and matted the pedal. He was barely pulling away when we had to back down for traffic. Kinda wished I'd dropped down to 3rd! Dang, that was fun!
