I was out driving around this afternoon on some back roads, doing the speed limit, minding my own business, when all of a sudden there is an Eclipse up my ass. Third gen body style, don't know if it was a GT. He stays right on my bumper on this rough, potholed road, again I'm doing the speed limit. There's a stretch where it smooths out a little and there's some nice turns so I pulled away briefly but then caught up with another car and had to slow down and he's right back behind me. Then I get to a stop sign and turn right, he turns right too and gets even closer. At this point I'm pretty annoyed so I tap my brakes. So what does he do? Tries to pass in a no passing zone. I almost wanted to let him get even with me just so I could say "Are you serious?" But as soon as he pulled over I just matted it. His nose made it almost to my mirror before I hit the powerband and then it was over quick. I resumed driving the speed limit and he took the next turn while I went straight. I wish I could have seen if it was a GT, that at least would have been closer to a fair fight. Sounded like it might have been a four banger though.
