Test Driving a Titan?

A Titan on a "Test Drive"... I'm not sure, looked like it might have been dealer plates, but I looked at it when I got along side and saw a Window Sticker still attached and noticed two guys were in it and they glanced over at me. Just so happens we were on 35th Ave. going south just off the 101 loop and we hit a red light. Yup, just him and I side by side, all alone. It now appeared like one of those fellers was looking at my front lower fender.. (possibly at the HEMI Badge?), and then they were really smiling and chatting now. I'm not one who looks for trouble, it just seems to find me, but, not to look like a fool, I let other guy make the "First Move", if there is to be one. What do you know, the light goes Green and I hear the Titan Revs coming up rapidly and sure as heck he's a fender in front.... but I was ready for this and within a second We were even, then the big Red Ram shifted gears and it felt like it jumped/launched (gotta love that Super Chips).... out in front. I could still hear him on it hard, but I just pulled away in a solid fashion. Next thing I knew, he was several cars back, so I slowed down.... and he slowed down, so I really slowed down and I could tell he wanted no part of me because he even slowed more. Ended up driving below the speed limit for another mile before I had to make a turn to my destination, but by then he was way, way back really crawling.
I hope if that was someone out for a Titan Test Drive, that his next stop might be the near by Dodge Dealer to test drive a HEMI Ram.
Anyway, I got a smile on my face, and that's my adventure for the day.

NICE Titan kill. A Titan owner told me how much he liked my truck last night while out at Hooters. Now I just have to convince my buddy in Florida...

Nice kill. You'll notice that most of the Nissan dealerships aren't anywhere near the Dodge dealerships. Those Titans would never sell if they were.

Nice kill! Why do those Titans do that? You give em a good spanking and they slow down so you can't do it again or give them a bunch of **** for it. Guess I just answered it. At least I would take my medicine or give it another try.

Nice kill i haven't been able to get a Titan to try me yet On my way home from work today I was comming around the circle in Waco and had this young college guy came and pulled up beside me in a vette revved up his engine and took off.I couldn't do anything because of traffic in front of me but I worked my way through and got beside him and reved up the Hemi,knowing this guy should be able to beat me in a Vette but heck I'll take any one on once win or lose,but this guy wouldn't not do anything now that we were side by side with no traffic in front of us,so I reved up once more droped her in 2nd and took off He turned off and went a different way.He could at least gave me a chance after all that revving up he did.
