You daydream about having piwoslaw's svietlana

You're at a stop light next to a Prius sitting in a 200 hp Nissan maxima with a v-6 24 valve quadcammed beast of an engine with an aluminum block and capable of 0-60 in 7.2 in stock form and the Prius pulls ahead quite quickly when the light turns green.

You sit in the draft of a semi long enough to annoy the driver so he drives on the shoulder and throws gravel in your face.

RIP Maxima 1997-2012
