    What is the first thing you look at/for when pulling up next to another performance car? Be it Mustang, Mopar, Chev. I always check the trim level, and see if I can get a handle on the demeanour of the driver. I have noticed the most white sunglasses, flat brim cocky chauds in Mustangs. Not to the level of lifted diesel trucks, but close......

    I start looking before that. I watch how a turn is made. I watch how there handling a curve at speed. Then start paying attention to car, only if driver "earns" that respect.

    I slyly slide the window down so I can hear it first before I get next to them. Then I determine if the driver looks like he is stupid enough to try to hole shot me to or not. If its a he and he looks competitive, I might smile extra bright and throw him off track just to be sure I get the launch on him. LOL :D Definitely love to hear other muscle car exhausts though from there its the lope of the cam and any other distinctions that tell me I may not be playing with a regular old muscle car. :) Those turbo cars are sneaky though. Can't always tell when they have a couple of those shoved under the hood.

    I look at the exhaust if coming up on it then any markings. If it's coming at me the hood gets my attention. Tammie nailed the other stuff if you get that chance.

    I had a set of funky headlights coming up behind me on the 407 (like a toll road but autobahn style in southern Ontario, Toronto area) ends up behind my ass doing about 130K, so I give her a shot (Charger btw) little tire spin but he knows. Well next thing there it is on my right side blind spot (white light tells him I know...cool feature btw) and he goes and I go, well this guy ends up in London Ontario before he stops for sure but he saw what his first Hellcat for sure and got the F out of Dodge. I'm a responsible guy in fairly heavy traffic and off at the next exit and I have been nailed by the aerial cops before so I know better but that was cool and so is the car.

    Then well, WTF is it? Always gives it away quickly.
