Trip to LA/GTO Race

so i have two stories in one..i havent posted much cause life has been crazy.

So on July 5 or 6th dont remeber anymore...I drove to LA from Middletown CA to visit some friends. Since my moms a trusting women..and Im a semi responsible young adult...I had permission to drive her 2001 330ci to LA. So ont he way down we made it in about 7 hours to Whitter CA(30 south of LA..aprx) The way down i followed a Audi TT for about 5 miles at 95-110mph. Just cruising down I-5. I then kinda raced a Lancer. It was just a normal one..no evo. I took his ass.
The way back from LA i drove the grapevine at 100mph+ the entire way..no problems with the car..or cops. Half way through a 2005 525i pulled up behind me while cruising at 100mph. We took off together gracefully going through traffic(no aggression) at 120+. I followed him for about 25-30min. Either way...i got from Whittier CA to Middletown CA in 6 hours. The trip actually took 7, but we(friend) stopped for taco bell for 40min and bought gas in Dublin(south bay CA). Thats pretty good time i thought. We hit some traffic in LA and some in San Fran area also.

So for the third story....I was driving the 330 up Cobb mountian pass. Its a a hill that most cars can only go 45-60 on max..thats realyl pushing it. Well i was pulling up to the base when i saw a friend who bought himself a new Pontiac GTO. V8 4.? ltr engine..huge. Well so we took off...i folowed up the entire mountain at 80-100..which was nuts and i will never do it again...but i kept up throught he turns..actually gained some time. While he pulled away slowly on starights..because he obviously has more hp then me. So we met up..he was impressed by the 3.0ltr 220hp. I told him the same and we went our ways.

In addition, I purpose we do it again now that I have relatively new tires (backs have about 1/3 life left) Do it now while I'm still stock, that will change REALLY quick

I'd rather have a Vauxhall Monaro. Pontiac didn't even bother to reorient the console for LHD.

what was there to really change except the volume knob on the cd player and the hand brake? All the controls are circles evenly spaced across the center, with the emergency flashers upove them. Every car I've owned has had the hand brake on the side that mine is now. oh well, to each his own. I like the manaro HSV with AWD that they have in australia, Id do a conversion to mine except the right hand drive conflicts with some linkage. anywho, check out the interior and tell me what you think should be changed.

both actually, whenever I got too far ahead on the straights though, Id wait for him to catch up before the first turn came up because its no fun unless you can see the other guy sliding the corners

EDIT: Only way to solve this is to do it when the roads clear up. You bring your camera, I'll bring mine. Get a passenger to record eachothers cars and have some fun with it

EDIT #2: He did very well in the turns I must admit, but I was still pullin away.

Granted, I'd choose one over a Corvette or something, but it seems that Pontaic halfassed it.

I agree with you on that it was a little bit rushes, but there arent really any cars that I dont feel are half assed these days. I am a firm believer that bmw doesnt half ass anything they do. I was inches from buying a new M3, but with a 50k+ price tag I steered away from it. Great car, but a little too high priced for the performance it has. So, I got a GTO for 26k out the door that is really comparable with the m3 in all performance catagories, Ive always been a GM guy so I gave it a go. I have 25k I can now put towards mods.
Cars I was looking at buying
STI
EVO
02 Trans am
M3
GTO

The gto was the best buy for the buck plus it was 2nd to the m3 for interior quality. cant complain really.
