Drag racin' (Totally non-Audi content)

Reading Phil's story about beating a Jag in a drag race brings to mind this
tale from my mis-spent youth:

I was a passenger in a F*rd tow truck on US-1, just south of Miami (this
was 1971 or 2), maniac named "Sonny" was driving the truck, g/f also in
front seat. Someone in a hot something or other (I don't remember what it
was) decided HE was going first - Sonny took exception to this and floored
it, ran through the gears like a GP racer, and left Mr. Hotshot in the dust
up to about 70 mph, where Mr. Hotshot (wisely) decided there was too much
traffic to play like this - what was amazing was Hotshot's expression when
he realized not only had he been blown off by a f*'n raggedy old TOW TRUCK,
but we had a junk VW Beetle on the hook as well! I did mention that "Sonny"
was a lunatic, didn't I?

Best Regards,
