Re: WMB Drivers

	i have had similar things happen to me.  i came upon a van 
	in the fast lane of highway 250, just north of hillsborough
	(i was heading south).  it's five lanes wide and not a single
	car on 280 there ever drives below 70, and three lanes go 80.
	he was at 80 in the fast lane and i was going 85-90.  i a
	approached, let of evenly at a safe distance, and politely
	and properly flashed my high beams.  no effect, so i did it
	a10 seconds later - there was plenty of room to move over.

	so when it was clear and safe i went for a calm, slow, right 
	hand pass.  as i got to the back of his early 80's brown
	econoline her SWERVED into my lane, mising my car by inches, 
	(only because i swerved away and hit the brakes) and this 
	caused another car (thankfully some kind of nice performance
	cr or another) to swerve like mad.  i was in utter disbelief.

	i eventually passed him a couple lanes to the right and went
	on my way.  on some big downhill (at father serra there) he
	caught up to me and began tailgating (<3 feet from me) and
	swerving back and fourth.  basically trying to kill me.  once
	i got ahead again i placed a call to 911.

	audi content: tomorrow i complete a transaction that will put
	me in the seat of my first quattro.  i am racking my brain 
	for a personalzed plate.  i think i will mock my (now ex)
	auto mechanic by getting "BAD IDEA" on my plate.  it it's 
	available... SHNAY CR perhaps?  SHNAY TY?
