Here is mine. In high school I had a friend who's dad had a beautifully restored 62 Impala with a 4speed and 409. His dad would leave very early for work and came home very late. So occasionally we would take the Impala to school or just joy ride in it. One morning he picked me up in it and we went to breakfast. After breakfast we headed to school. A few blocks from school we were stopped at a red light when a new black Iroc Camaro pulled up on our left. We immediately knew who it was. One of the smart mouth Jocks. Next to him was a cheerleader and another jock and cheerleader were in the back. The guy in the back was egging on the driver to race us. So he puts the Iroc in Neutral and does this rev. The 305 was screaming and the exhaust sounded like an air hose as it blew through the pellet style catalytic converter. The girls were exited to race and beat the long hairs in the old Chevy. One even waved like she was waving to us as if they were passing us. My friend smiled at them and put the Impala in 1st gear with a "Clunk". Then the light turned green.... The Iroc Camaro squeaked a tire. At the same time my friend let the clutch out and we were off. About 3/4 the way across the intersection he put his foot into the 409. All 8 barrels opened! The car squatted and the front end got light. All we saw was that long hood. He hit 2nd gear with a bang and both rear hubcaps came off! The 409 was screaming and that big car was wiggling all over the road! By now the Camaro was several car lengths behind us so he slowed down to let them catch up. The Jock would no longer get up next to us. We got stopped at the next light and he had to pull up next to us. I have never seen so many long faces! The girls had a look on them like the world was ending. The one in the back was hitting the jock with her purse! The jock in the back was trying to slide under the drivers seat as to not be seen. They rolled up the window and waited for us to leave that light before they would. Not wanting to be embarrassed again. So at this point we made a U-turn to go get our hubcaps. My friends dad never noticed the road rash on the hubcaps, if he did he never said anything.
