I have written about this before, but it constantly annoys me. When you're driving your old car, did you ever notice that the other traffic on the road just has to go by you? It doesn't matter if you're in a '36 Pontiac with a safe top speed of about 55 mph or a Chrysler 300 that can hit almost 150 mph flat out -- that Honda Civic driver is going to pedal harder to blow by you. I don't know what it is, but there's something in the human make up that automatically makes a motorist stomp the pedal to pass an old car.
One of these days I'm going to built a Toronado with a jet engine, like the one Jay Leno has. And when that new car tries to pass, the driver is going to get quite a shock! Man, that will be fun!
