Today on the 202

So today I'm cruisin' about 60mph and of course everyone is passing me, no big deal right.
I see this white impala on 20's with really low profile tires fly by me. One of the rears was completely flat, flapping and flailing around.

I'm totally hoping and waiting to see him wrap it up into the center guidewires, here in PHX the cars that hit that stuff usually spin and peel off both bumpers and don't leave a single body panel intact.
No dice on the wreck, but I'm sure his sweet dubs are ruined by the time he got home doing 80+ on the freeway!

I'm thinking, this couldn't get any better, after I was done laughing at this dbag with the dubs,

Up comes some newer GM car, blowing water out from under the car like how an elephant pisses. I'm thinking now, no way, no way this guy's going to make it the next mile or two. I see about 1/4 mile ahead his car is done pissing. I figure it was only a matter of time before he pulls over like an idiot because he didn't see the waterfall out the rear view mirror?
No dice.


I guess he was running zmax?


Oh well, that's my story for the day!

My locale is too poor for the clowns anymore. congrats to japan, the midget sideways socialist regime has won..
I actually miss the clown cars sometimes.
a week or so ago, me and the prius in front of me were the clowns in the fast lane, pissing nothing, and barely sipping fuel...casually so. We both had to slow down to the bright blue hemi cop car waiting for clowns to pass, it was in the right lane. they still got the hot rods goods under the hoods...and we get prius and 23 year old subarus as the modern hot rod affordable.

One time, I saw someone driving slowly through town with one rear wheel locked up. I'm surprised they didn't at least hear it.
