Actually the ones that do this to man, are normally big ol trucks thinking they are fast as hell, and normally what I do it
is I will get infront of them, wait till I get near a simi and slow way down(knowing my exit is the next one)
do the same speed as the simi then drop it into 2nd and get off the freeway hahahaha

Mazdas looking like WRXs,

Before I put on my flame suite I don't have a problem with Mazda as a company, I love their rotary platform but im tired of people saying my 5 door WRX looks like a Mazda, and too add insult to injury every Mazda 3 that stops next to me wants to race.

Them: Vroom, Vroom
Me: Really?!?!? Again?!?!?
Uninformed Passenger: hey look its a Subaru : )
Me: Nope, Its another Mazda revving their engine at a red light in rush hour traffic
Uninformed passenger: but it looks just like your car.
/facepalm/

What grinds my gears is i have moved here from Australia and moved to a nice area where there are some awsum roads around and the road surface on most roads here is SHIT!!! Not much fun on my motorbike either. You guys pay enough taxes over here so the roads should be near perfect

I heard a stat at one point that it costs $500 a year extra in maintenance driving your car around on California roads, Bushings, joints, tires and alignment. Especially the highways, always under construction but never any better : (

The parts that aren't deteriorating are nice. Part of the fun is developing one's skill of identifying and avoiding the "holes". Many of the "holes" come from poor patch jobs.

All kidding aside, our canyon roads will generally be repaved more often than city roads though. County budget versus city budget in addition to those roads needing to be able to handle fire fighting and emergency equipment regularly on a yearly basis.

It grinds my gears when non car people try to tell me that 2 cars look alike, sound alike, or even that they are very similar. NO THEY"RE F*^#%^$ NOT.

My fiance tells me all the time that all muscle car sound the same, that the 94-96 mustang looks just like the 97-04 mustang, that she doesnt understand why i listen to so many exhaust clips because my car will never sound like a (insert car here).

or i get people who would ask me how much i want to sell my camaro for? First off, its a Trans Am, secondly, its not for sale (at the time) and 3rdly, no i dont want to race your "Shit-box" honda.

what pisses me off are stupid people on the road, mainly the ones that think there car is so bad ass and jsut have to play around with you for no reason.Like N/a Eclipses and Honda's with weed eater exhausts. I had an N/a Eclipse about a week ago, i was driving up to Disneyland one day just cruising along, and he comes up behind me and just starts riding my ass, and shifting lanes to get next to me and such and then drop back and do it all over again. so i change lanes ### my exit is coming up. he does it again, so i said #### it, and went about 3/4 to the floor and took off. last i saw was a little white dot getting smaller. I mean shit i know im not the most experienced with my car yet as i just got it a month ago, i do have alot to learn as to working on the car, but damn people its a WRX they are all over the road just let me drive, and do your homework before you #### with cars.
